Introduction: Eco Friendly Olive Oil Face Cleanser

This is eco friendly organic face cleanser.Despite what the skin care industry would like you to believe, you don't need to burn your face with antibacterial chemicals to maintain a dewy complexion. Nor do you need the artificial fragrances and other additives included to convince you you're really getting your skin clean. The truth is, your skin does a pretty good job of keeping itself clean – but make up, environmental elements and dirt in general can call for some extra help. When you use “oil fighting” skin treatments – even natural ones- you throw off the skin's natural cycle by stripping away necessary oils. Your skin then over-compensates by creating even more oil – which can lead to break outs.Remember, oil alone does not cause break outs – in fact, your skin uses oil to stay hydrated and clean. So drink plenty of water, and try this DIY method for removing dirt and makeup.

Note:You may find that you do break out in the first few days after starting this method, that’s because you’re unblocking pores and your skin is adjusting. Stick with it, and your skin should balance out shortly.

Step 1: Step:1 the Ingredients

Ingredients:

Castor oil

Secondary oil: extra virgin olive oil

Step 2: Step 2:Blend

Create your custom blend depending on your skin type:

Oily Skin: 30% castor oil to 70% secondary oilBalanced Skin: 20% castor oil to 80% secondary oilDry Skin: 10% castor oil to 90% secondary oilMix and store your blend in a clean flip-top 4oz bottle, I suggest GoToobs because they're leak-proof and travel well.

Step 3: Step 3:Use It!

Clean your face at night before bed – you really should never need to deep clean your face in the morning. Pour a quarter-sized amount of oil in the palm of your hand, rub your palms together to warm the oil. Smooth the oil over your face – take your time massaging any problem areas of your skin. This mixture will even remove stubborn waterproof mascara.

Soak a clean washcloth in hot water and cover your face with it – the cloth should be hot enough that it acts as a steam treatment – opening your pores. Allow the cloth to cool on your face – you may want to sit or lie down. Gently wipe away the oil – resisting the urge to scrub. If your skin feels tight, apply a tiny amount of your blend, and massage into the skin.
