I do a mix of castor oil and extra virgin olive oil. Two parts evoo to one part castor oil for my slightly oily skin. Rub on dry skin, wet a wash cloth with hot water, drape it over your face for about a minute, enjoy the mini facial, rinse the cloth and wipe off the oil. You can mess w/ the ratio to find what works best for your skin. What I've seen recommends a 1:1 ration or normal skin, 3:1 castor to olive for oily and 3:1 olive to castor for dry. You can also add a drop or two of tea tree oil to help w/ acne. I love it! My face feels great throughout the day, never gets too oily or too dry. Something I've never had w/ typical face washes and moisturizers.
