THE BASICS: WHAT DO WE MEAN BY OIL CLEANSING?

With the oil cleansing method (OCM) you cleanse the skin before going to sleep using an oil mixture that suits your skin type. The oil cleansing method is therefore a replacement for a 'regular' cleaner. Cleaning your skin is an important ritual, especially before bedtime. Clean skin absorbs care products better. And not unimportant: clean skin stays beautiful longer! Leaving your make-up on in the evening is really not a good idea to wake up refreshed. By means of oil cleansing you remove both impurities and make-up in a mild way. One of the advantages is that with this natural method you no longer need foaming (drying) cleaners.

SUITABLE FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE

Everyone can benefit from OCM. It is important that you adjust the composition of the oils to your skin type. Oily skin has different needs than dry skin. Castor oil or castor oil is often mentioned as the basis for oil cleansing. This is because castor oil has a cleansing effect and removes impurities well. It is a thick oil in composition, but it does not clog pores. Castor oil actually helps to remove excess sebum. In short, the principle of OCM is: 'fat dissolves fat'. This is effective for any skin type as long as you use an appropriate prescription. The drier your skin, the lower the proportion of castor oil in your OCM routine.

WHAT OILS DO YOU USE FOR OCM?

As you read above, castor oil is widely used as a base for oil cleansing. This oil cleanses, but does not dry out your skin. In general, the oilier your skin, the greater the proportion of castor oil that is recommended. Below we give a few oil cleansing recipes for various skin types. Little time? Then take a look at one of the delicious combinations , such as castor oil with sage !

  • Fat skin: 2 tsp castor oil and 2 tsp jojoba oil mixed
  • Sensitive skin: 1 tsp castor oil and 2 to 3 tsp jojoba oil mixed

OIL CLEANSING METHOD: HOW DO YOU WORK?

OCM requires a bit of a routine, but is very simple. In the evening, prepare the oil you need and have a small bowl, a teaspoon and a washcloth to hand. In the bowl you mix the oils in the right proportion. You can also mix the oils especially in a bottle so that you have less work on it. To cleanse, take the oil mixture in your hand and massage it on your face. After the massage, place a clean, lukewarm washcloth on your face to remove all impurities. Repeat if necessary until the skin is clean and feels clean. Rinse your face the next morning, and you're ready to go!

BUYING OCM OIL: YOU MUST LOOK FOR THIS.

Ready to get started with your oil cleansing recipe? Then it is important to always use an unscented oil. This is especially true if you have sensitive skin. Even a natural perfume can irritate your face, so pay close attention to this. At castorolie.nl you can buy pure castor oil from different brands, without additives such as perfume! You can get both black and cold pressed using castor oil. Black castor oil still contains ash residues and has a higher PH value. This would clean the skin even better. Yet many people choose the skin for the cold pressed variant because it is said to be the least processed and has therefore retained all its good properties.
