Easy DIY For Glowing Skin Now: The Oil Cleansing Method

We all want glowing skin and the search for the perfect cleanser never ends. If you are looking for a cleanser that is effective and cost effective, this super simple DIY is for you.

Should I really cleanse my skin with oil?

It sounds counterintuitive to cleanse your skin with oil, but one of the basic principles of chemistry is that like dissolves like.

Even if you have “oily” skin, this cleanser will remove the excess sebum from your skin and replace it with oils that will nourish your skin.

Moisturizers and lotions are essentially just oils and you are probably applying those to your skin, so there is no need to fear oil cleansing!

If you have acne, the cause is most likely a combination of hormones, bacteria, and dirt.

So, even those with acne can try this method.

My skin feels less tight and more moisturized when I use this method, and I think you will like it too.

Easy DIY Recipe

Castor Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil or carrier oil of your choice
Optional: 20 drops essential oil (tea tree, peppermint, and lemon, orange or lavender work well)

If you have normal skin, use a 1:1 ratio. If your skin is oily, increase the castor oil by 1/3. If your skin is dry, increase the olive oil by 1/3.


Massage a quarter sized amount unto dry skin.

Run a washcloth under hot water. Set it on your face and let the heat open your pores for a minute or two. Wipe off any excess oil.
