31 Days of Femininity: Cleaning your face naturally....
I recently started washing my face with olive oil.
Yes, you read that right.
I could barely bring myself to try it. After reading about it online I had to think it over for a few days before I could bring myself to try it. After all, rubbing oil on your face doesn't sound exactly cleansing. And I was scared about the results it could bring-huge results that could take days to go away!
But I finally tried it, and I have to tell you I was so surprised how wonderful it felt.
My face felt clean, soft, and very moisturized. And all it took was a little bit of olive oil!
What the oil is basically doing, is cleansing your face of the dirty oil, and replacing it with cleansing oil that is good for your skin. This works for all skin types, whether you have dry or oily skin.
The most common mixture of oils are olive oil and castor oil. I just haven't been anywhere to pick up the castor oil, but I do intend to try mixing that in my olive oil.
So how exactly do you cleanse your face with oil? It's an easy three step process.
1. First dip your fingers into a little bowl of oil (I suggest extra virgin olive oil) and rub it all over your face.
2. Then you take a washcloth and run it under hot water. Not so hot that you will burn your face, but as hot as you comfortably can take it being on your face. Lay the washcloth on your face and let it stay there for a minute.
3. Use the same washcloth and rub your face all over, wiping off the oil. You are done!
It's incredibly easy, and takes just a few minutes at night. Some people do it every night, others do it just a few nights a week.
