The Natural Wonders of the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

In a world brimming with beauty products, getting lost in the maze of chemical-laden cleansers and cosmetics is easy. Each one claims to be the secret to a glowing complexion. However, to achieve a long-lasting glowing complexion, natural products really do give the best results. Enter the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) – a skincare routine that relies on the cleansing powers of natural plant oils. At Neve’s Bees, we’re passionate about all things natural and would love to share with you the incredible benefits of the Oil Cleansing Method.

The Science Behind OCM

Oil attracts oil, which means that using plant-based oils and wax to cleanse your skin can effectively dissolve the excess sebum, dirt, and impurities that accumulate on your face throughout the day. The result? A clearer, more radiant complexion without the harshness of synthetic chemicals.

Here are just some of the benefits of ‘oil attracting oil’ compared to harsh, synthetic chemicals:

1. Deep Cleansing
Traditional foaming cleansers or, even worse, products containing salicylic acid, strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to breakouts. The OCM, on the other hand, gently dissolves impurities, effectively cleansing your pores and leaving your natural skin biome intact, protecting you against pollutants, environmental damage and preventing future clogged pores. This results in cleaner and healthier skin.

2. Balancing Oil Production
Contrary to popular belief, applying natural oils to your face can help balance oil production. When you strip your skin of its natural oils with harsh cleansers, it often responds by producing more oil to compensate. OCM helps maintain a healthy oil balance, reducing the risk of excessive oiliness.

3. Nourishing Your Skin
Natural plant oils are rich in a plethora of healthy vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. When you use them in your OCM routine, they deliver essential nutrients to your skin, leaving it soft, supple, and hydrated. Each oil has unique properties that cater to various skin types, making it customizable to your specific needs. We only choose oils with a very low comedogenic rating, meaning they do not block your pores.

4. Reducing Acne and Blemishes
The OCM has been a game-changer for many struggling with acne-prone skin. By thoroughly removing impurities and regulating oil production, keeping your skin’s natural healthy microbiome strong and intact, it helps prevent and heal breakouts. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory properties of certain oils can calm redness and irritation.

5. Healthy-Ageing Benefits
The natural oils used in OCM are packed with antioxidants that combat free radicals, which accelerate the ageing process. Consistent use of the Oil Cleansing Method can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping your skin hydrated and radiant.

6. Lastly…
OCM is not just better for you, it is better for the planet. When you opt for the Oil Cleansing Method using natural plant oils, you’re choosing a more sustainable skincare option. These oils are sustainably sourced, and you can reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating the need for diluted products containing harsh chemical cleansers packaged in plastic bottles.

How to use the OCM

Now, that you know WHY you should choose OCM, we shall now tell you HOW – we would hate to leave you high and dry (literally!).

Follow this easy four-step process to achieve glowing, youthful skin:

1. Choose the Right Oils or Balm: Determine your skin type and select the appropriate oils. Common options include jojoba, castor, sunflower, safflower, and olive oil, but feel free to mix and match to create your unique blend.

2. The Cleansing Ritual: Begin by massaging the oil mixture onto your dry face for a few minutes. This process not only cleanses but also provides a mini facial massage, promoting circulation and relaxation.

3. Steam and Rinse: Apply a warm, damp cloth to your face to open up your pores. After a few moments, gently wipe away the oil. Rinse the cloth and repeat until your skin feels clean and refreshed. Here are some cotton face cloths.

4. Moisturize: Depending on your skin type, you may not need additional moisturizers. However, if your skin feels a bit dry, consider applying a few drops of your chosen oil or moisturising serum as a natural moisturizer.
