Oil Cleansing Method-slightly unrelated to the stomach..

Okay, this is rather unrelated to stomach issues, but it is health related so I wanted to track my progress in this venture as well!  I read about the “Oil Cleansing Method” for washing your face with oil.  It’s a combination of castor oil and other oils such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, sunflower seed oil, or jojoba oil; the castor oil cleanses your skin of the dirt, makeup, etc. and the other oil helps to keep the naturally occurring oil in your skin in balance.  It makes a lot of sense since our skin naturally makes oil and most face cleansers are trying to strip your skin of oil, which actually causes your skin to try to make MORE oil versus just keeping it in balance.  So I found grapeseed oil at my local grocery store for $5.49 for 8.45 oz and combined it in a 9:1 ratio with castor oil.  I reused an old lime juice bottle and put in 18 tbsps of grapeseed oil and 2 tbsp of castor oil.  Tonight I rubbed it into my face and then put a warm damp wash cloth on my face to open up the pores and did this three times till the oil was removed.  My face feels very clean and actually a little dry, surprisingly!  The info says that in 14 days you’ll see dramatic results, so here it goes!
