Harsh cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils. Instead try the oil cleansing method. It uses only one ingredient: oil, to clean, remove makeup as well as hydrate and nourish the skin. 

The Oil Cleansing Method is one of the most simple yet effective ways to cleanse the skin naturally. But how does it really work? And, can I use it if I have oily skin? Well, one of the most basic principals in chemistry is that "like dissolves like" so therefore oil dissolves oil. By using the right oils, you can cleanse your pores of excess dirt and bacteria, while replacing the dirty oil with fresh new oil to heal, protect, moisturize and nourish your skin naturally. And, it's great for all skin types including oily and acne prone skin!

Here's how:
1.  Place a small amount of oil into your hand and gently massage it into the skin in a circular motion. No need to wet the skin first.
2.  Massage for a couple of minutes. Massage longer and add more oil if needed to remove stubborn makeup.
3.  Place a clean wet, warm washcloth over the skin and let the warmth from the wash cloth sit against the skin for several seconds, this will help to remove impurities from the pores and cleanse the skin. Repeat on the other side of the face. 
4.  Follow with a splash of cool water and pat dry.

Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut and Sunflower Oil are some of my favourite oils to use! What oil do you use? And, are you a fan of the OCM?
