Oil Cleansing Method

Natural Skin Care / Friday, November 30th, 2012

I admit it. I’m a butterfly. I jump from soap to scrub to cream to toner to clean my face– depending on my mood, the weather, and how much time I have.

But I’ve been noticing the texture and tone of my skin isn’t as nice as I’d like, not to mention the new wrinkle that’s appeared under each eye.

So I’m testing the power of a “routine”, and knowing that discipline is not my strong suit, trying to make it as easy as possible.

The Oil Cleansing Method uses just one product, takes only a few minutes, plus feels really good!

I’m doing it morning and night. I don’t need to use moisturizer afterwards, though I am still using my eye creme at night ;)


New to the Oil Cleansing Method? Crunchy Betty explains what it is and how it works, and compares different oils to use for different skin types. (*One point I disagree with. Crunchy Betty says it can be more expensive, but I think it’s the opposite!)

The blend I’m using is super-simple: half castor oil, half calendula-infused olive oil. I’ll report back in a couple weeks to let you know how it’s going!

  1. Like you, I kind of bounce around. Lately, I’ve been doing a bit more exfoliation, followed by more light moisturizing. Thankfully, I don’t need a lot of either — so far … Thanks for sharing the video!

    1. I’ve been doing more exfoliation too, twice weekly instead of just once (or when I remembered). I love how scrubs give instant improvement to the texture of my skin!

      Glad you liked the video! Hey Fran Hey is my new find. Totally digging her D.I.Y. Natural Beauty!
