The Cleansing System opens up skin pores, removes dirt, oil and prevents acne.

How to use oil cleansing method

Take a plastic bottle and add around 3 tbsp of castor oil to it and around 7 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Shake the bottle well so that both the oils get mixed properly.

Castor oil is said to be effective in removing the impurities from the skin while olive oil is good as a moisturiser. For acne prone skin it is best to take the two oils in the ratio of 75:25, while if you have dry skin then it is vice versa.

Clean your hands and put a little of this oils mixture on the palm of your hands. With gentle hands, massage this oil on your face and neck in circular motions.

Make sure that the oil gets into your skin well.

Now take a soft cotton cloth and dip it into warm water. Squeeze the excessive water from the cloth and wipe your face with this cloth.

You can even keep the warm cloth on your face for a few minutes, but make sure the water is not that warm to harm your face.

Use it as many times as possible.

The steam helps your face to open up the pores and thereby impurities get removed from the face.

Once done, just use normal water to wash your face and pat it dry.

If your skin is feeling dry then surely you can apply a good moisturiser too.

Benefits of oil cleansing method

The prime benefits of this method are that it helps to get rid of pimples and acne. Apart from this, it is natural and organic in nature so there are no harms being caused to your skin.
