Oil Cleansing Method: Frugal Skin Care

A few months ago, after doing a little research, I started using a combination of organic olive oil and  castor oil to clean my oily, acne-prone skin.  I was skeptical at first, I had always heard never to use oil, especially if your skin was oily to begin with.  But, after trying every acne regime on the market with no success, I was willing to give it a try.   

I must say, my skin has never felt better, and rarely have a breakout.  I use a blend of 50% Castor Oil and 50% Olive oil.  Also, I add in a few drops of tea tree essential oil, which has antiseptic properties.  You may need to adjust your ratio and/or carrier oil depending on your skin.
