Remember when you first heard of low carb diets, and you thought Dr. Atkins must’ve lost his mind? Eating loads of protein and fat to lose weight is counterintuitive. But it works. Here’s another one for you to put in the category of “Ideas that don’t seem to make sense but work anyway”: the Oil Cleansing Method. Yes, ladies, you can clean your face using oil. For decades, I’ve stayed away from anything containing oil! Instead of washing with soap, combine equal parts extra virgin olive oil and castor oil, and massage a substantial amount into your face and neck for about two minutes. Soak a washcloth in warm to hot water, wring it out and drape it over your face. As the washcloth cools, wipe away the oil. Rinse the washcloth in hot water and wipe away any remaining oil residue. Then splash your face with cool water to close your pores. No additional cleansing is necessary. Some women, even oily gals, have found the Oil Cleansing Method helps eliminate blackheads within a couple weeks and leaves skin glowing. Not sure about putting a laxative on your face? I understand. DHC’s Cleansing Oil is another option. It’s made of olive oil, rosemary oil and vitamin E. Find it at ebay.com. But don’t delay, the auction ends on the 27th.
