My skin has always been quite oily. I have tried most supermarket products out there, but nothing's really helped. Since I generally prefer natural food I was all ears when I heard the oil cleansing method (OCM) could solve my problem.
Basically, OCM is about using natural oils to clean your skin instead of the chemicals used in soaps. It sounds contradicting to clean oily skin with oils, but I guess the theory behind it (extremely simplified) is that chemicals dry the skin and make it produce more oil, whereas OCM balances the oil production. And on top of that it is supposed to remove black heads. We would want that, right?
Tonight was my second night of OCM. The oils recommended to use are extra virgin olive oil, castor oil, almond oil, jojoba oil. Perhaps some other ones as well. The only one I could find was sweet almond oil so that's what I am using. So far I haven't seen any results, not even negative ones as you would normally expect in the beginning of a new treatment.
I'm giving this 2 weeks and will keep you updated on the progress. Hopefully, this one goes to nature!
