Skin update

The Oil Cleansing Method is going well. It takes 2 minutes to wash my face. I had no idea how long that feels! It is nice because I make sure I get those 2 minutes to just relax while I massage my face and put the hot towel on it. It sounds so silly to type that a 2 minute break feels good!

Things I like so far:

1. Skin feels soft
2. Relaxing
3. Feels nice
4. Cheap
5. Toxic free
6. It gets my make-up off better than soap did

Things I dislike:

1. I have to use soap to get the oil off of my hands
2. I still haven't figured out how to breath with the cloth on my face
3. I get all wet and the floor gets wet from the wash cloth (probably user error!)

Things that are neutral:
1. So far I haven't noticed any changes in mt acne

I have done this a few times in the shower and a few times at the sink. I much prefer the shower. One of the main reasons I prefer the shower is that when I look in the mirror, I end up picking at my face. It seems to work better for me not to stare at my face while I clean it.

I am excited to see what happens over the next few weeks. My skin looks the same so no photo.

  1. I'm having great success with this method! I wet the washcloth with really hot water, but then wring it out pretty well. Also, I then go lay down on my bed and put the washcloth over my face so I don't have to stand in the bathroom all blind, haha. I do have to occasionally pull the bottom of it up to breathe deeper while it's on my face, but I find it quite relaxing.

    Maybe try a lighter oil if your blend is too oily on your hands? I'm finding the sweet almond oil nice and light, and I can just rub the excess into my hands to moisturize them. I'm using about a dime-sized amount on my face.

    So far, I think this is awesome!
