HOW TO MAKE & USE GENTLE OIL CLEANSER

Updated: Jun 10

The Oil Cleansing Method



Starting and ending your day with a facial routine is not only making your skin look more beautiful. It is also deeply soothing your nervous system.

As you massage your face you stimulate your lymph system and gently drain out toxins. 

It is also an effective and inexpensive way of rejuvenating by increasing blood circulation, removing dead skin cells and increase muscle tone. 

Touching the face with our hands brings a feeling of feeling loves and appreciated.

Many reasons to get started. And it gets even better:

You can easily make your gentle oil cleanser.

Why Oil Cleansing?

Using oil instead of soap or a cleanser, to dissolve and remove impurities from the skin while it protects your skin from dehydrating and removes impurities. 

A long time belief was that a deep cleansing is only possible with strong surfactants. But that way the skin is only producing more and more oil to protect itself.

Because water doesn’t mix with oils so you have to use harsh cleansing agents to remove dirt. 

The OCM Method removes sebum and cleans clogged pores, it balances dry skin and gives you a glowing look.

Oil cleansers naturally bind dirt and impurities on your skin - breaking down makeup and unclogging pores. It leaves the skin’s natural moisture barrier intact because it doesn’t rely on cleansing agents.
