If you are a part of the natural living world long enough, you’re sure to come across the facial cleansing method known as the oil cleansing method (OCM). I first started reading about it years ago and was immediately intrigued. I read many testimonials of how it left skin glowing and even cleared up acne. Sign me up!

The oil cleansing method is just what it sounds like. You cleanse your face with oil. The idea is that like dissolves like. Therefore, when you cleanse your skin with oil, it dissolves all the oil that may have hardened with other impurities and is clogging your pores and you wipe it away. Instead of stripping away the natural oils that your skin needs like many commercial cleansers, it balances your oils. Because of this, it works for all skins types: oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, and even acne-prone skin!
