My friend sent me a text some time ago ‘OMFG that oil you gave me is a miracle! I kept it on for 10 minutes and OMG!’ That text made my day! My friends back home have also been saying that my skin is glowing and it really is thanks to the magic Castor Oil!
I have been using Castor Oil long enough to be confident in saying that you definitely do not need any other face cleansing products than oil. It’s quick and gets deep into pores to get all that grim out. All you need to do is massage a little bit of the oil into your skin in the evening, keep it on for at least 30 seconds and wipe it of with a hot cloth. That’s it and believe me, the results are great. The skin feels nice and smooth, just apply a drop of oil or your favourite natural moisturiser after the procedure and off to bed! You will wake up to a beautiful and healthy skin! Just remember not to mix up the routine. Try not to use any other store-bought face cleansers when using the oil cleansing method, you will only confuse your skin.
It is a very sticky oil and the skin absorbs it very slowly, therefore it’s a brilliant massage oil. Only a little amount is required. It’s and excellent ingredient in any cleansing products as it draws dirt to itself. Also makes lips and hair shiny so it’s a great addition to lip balms, hair masks. It is a stable oil which does not easily go rancid. Keeps for 3-4 years.
The cleansing oil I am using at moment contains 50ml Castor Oil + 50ml Rosehip Seed Oil + 1ml Tea Tree Essential Oil. But you can mix it with other oils like Peach Kernell Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil. Add a little bit of Vitamin E for even more luxurious mix. Or you can simply use Castor Oil on its own. I’ve heard people saying that their skin breaks out after using this cleansing method, but I’ve also read that it happens because the skin is getting used to the new routine and it should pass. I personally haven’t experienced breakouts.
Oil (Olive, Sweet Almond) is also a perfect make up remover! It removes even waterproof mascara. I stopped using make up removers years ago when my eyelids got badly damaged by Loreal makeup wipes. My eyelids were so dried out, sore and even started to crack, I do not wish this on anyone! After I got them sorted, I only used simple oil to remove mascara and I noticed that my eyelashes got healthier and looked pretty and shiny without mascara.
