The Oil Cleaning Method (OCM) is the most gentle and effective way to cleanse your skin. This cleansing method for your face and neck is gaining popularity in recent years since people who have converted from traditional cleansing methods to OCM are seeing amazing results in their skin. The sunflower + tamanu cleansing oil by cali + bare is beneficial for oily, normal and dry skin. This cleansing oil is designed for sensitive skin, is non-comedogenic and contains only 5 plant based organic ingredients with no preservatives.
The basic concept of the Oil Cleansing Method is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. It is important to take the time to massage the cleansing oils into your face and neck, approximately 60 seconds, because this gives the cleansing oils the chance to sink into your pores and properly soften the unwanted dirty oils and grime. The steam from the washcloth that you will use to wipe away the excess cleansing oil will open your pores, allowing the unwanted oils to be easily removed. Oils are the best way to remove oils from pores and with regular use your pores will be cleaner with less congestion which helps them appear smaller and smoother. Oil cleansers are effective in removing make-up, sunscreen and overall dirt and grime from your day without disturbing the outer dermis layer leaving your skin soft and smooth and ready for the rest of your skincare routine. Hopefully you will give the oil cleansing method a try. Your skin will thank you for it!
Step # 1: Apply a dropperful or two to your hands and apply to DRY skin. Massage into face and neck for about 2 minutes using your fingertips and palms. The massage action is when the cleansing oil really works its magic, dissolving build-up and nourishing the skin with powerful plant nutrients. Take this time to pamper yourself; breath in the intoxicating oil blend of tamanu, geranium and frankincensce and just relax and let go the stresses of the day.
Step #2: Wet a clean washcloth with warm water and place it onto face allowing the steam to open your pores.
Step #3: Gently wipe away impurities + excess oil with washcloth. No need to scrub too aggressively — a few gentle sweeps of the face will do the trick!
