The Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

If you had told me 10 years ago that i could wash my face with oil and have my best skin ever, I would have said you were crazy. Then, like everyone else, i believed oil on your face would make you break out and would certainly make my already-oily skin more oily. Older and (I think) wiser me now knows I was wrong!

The OCM is basically washing your face with a combination of oils; based on the scientific fact that "Oil dissolves oil". After reading so many raves on the Oil Cleansing Method on beauty blogs and forums, i gave it a try and all i can say is...Wow!!.

I use 2 part Castor Oil to 4 part Grapeseed Oil and 4 parts Extra Virgin Olive oil. I pour this mixture in my palm rub together briefly to warm up and then apply to my after-the-day-not-yet-washed face. I massage it for like 2 minutes, then soak a soft face towel in bearably-hot water, squeeze and place on face till cool. The steam from the towel opens your pores and allow the oils sink in and do its magic.

I repeat this 3-4 times depending on the amount of dirt on my face. After gently (Don't Scrub) cleaning the oil off with the hot towel my face ALWAYS feels like a baby's bum and i don't even need to moisturize!

I've been using this for the past 2 months now and the difference is amazing! (No, Its not breakouts and Acne!). My face is smoother....large pores are closing up and blackheads are rising out of my pores on their own.

 Have you tried the OCM? Let me know your experience.

Remain Beautiful,



  1. Thanks for sharing. I am a newbie with the OCM and I'm already seeing some great difference.

    Can I use almond oil alone?

  2. Yes, you can use almond oil alone. Infact you can use any natural oil alone.

  3. can I use tea tree oil alone? Thanks... I've really learnt a lot. I hope this continues

    1. Tea tree oil is not a carrier oil so you need to mix it with a carrier oil like olive, coconut etc.
