So I've been doing the Oil Cleansing Method now for almost three weeks and I don't think I have it right yet and am hoping for some advice on what to try next. The first week I tried a 1:3 mix of castor and olive oils and my skin became SO dry and sandpaper-y. I ditched the castor oil completely and have just been using olive oil since, but my face is still pretty dry and starting to break out more as a result, I think. Or maybe it's not getting deep-cleansed enough without the castor oil. My skin tends toward dryness and breaks out pretty easily, so I had pretty high hopes for the OCM. What should I try next. Coconut oil? Apricot kernel? I'm hoping not to have to get into the high-price-tag oils if possible.
My routine, in case that could use some adjustment, too, has been to rub the oil in for a few minutes (maybe 2 or 3), hot washcloth steam and then wipe (I usually do this twice), and then rinse a little, followed by a couple of drops of oil to moisturize at the end.
