Stepping out on a limb

I am so trying this Oil Cleansing method and I'll post results in 2-4 weeks (definitely no before/after pictures, though).

Hopefully, it won't backfire and leave me housebound or brown-bagged. It comes highly recommended, has anyone else tried this?

I think it sounds fascinating! I can't wait to hear how it works for you.
Do you really have to do the meditating and visualizing part?

It couldn't hurt, right? But I don't know if my visualizing powers are that strong.

I am also totally intrigued by this idea. I have super dry skin, so when I'm in the kitchen I rub evoo on my hands already. I've never thought about it on my face.

Very interesting.

I rarely tell people this, but I don't wash my face with anything -- I just splash water on it and use a washcloth or towel to rub dirt away. And I usually have pretty good skin (if you don't look at it with a magnifying glass.)

The oil-attracts-oil concept actually does make sense to me. Maybe I'll see if this would help my skin be magnifying-glass-proof.

Please keep me posted on that. I'm hoping to have good skin again.

I say don't mess with stuff like that. Just eat good. Once you start doing those things your body gets confused.

So far, so good. I'm really liking it, but I'm just using the olive oil - no castor oil.

The steaming is my favorite part.

Let me know how it goes. I have been using a recipe I found online for a sugar scrub. It has grapeseed oil, a little jojoba oil, vitamin C crystals, Vitamin E, a little aloe, and sugar. I use it on my hands regularly and my face once or twice a week. It feels incredibly greasy while I am washing, but within a few seconds after patting my hands or face dry it soaks in and feels wonderful.

My mom also only washes her face with water and she is 60 years old and has very nice skin. I wish that worked for me, but I can't stand the feeling of not washing my make-up off with soap!
