I began using using the OCM on April 5 (as talked about in this blog) and did it every night for a month. I was pretty happy with the results and loved that I was using such cheap and natural ingredients to clean my skin. Then my concoction ran out and I was out of town for a week so I went almost 2 weeks without doing it and instead using an astringent that I used to use.
I immediately noticed a difference. My same problems were back--extra dry skin after cleaning, oily skin in the morning, oily skin throughout the day....so I finally mixed up some more and took pics to show you the ingredients!
Just 3 ingredients! Castor oil, EVOO, and Tea tree oil. I designated a nifty little travel container to hold it all. Here are the amounts:
I use 2/3 castor oil and 1/3 olive oil. I added more tea tree oil to this batch--about a teaspoon or two--compared to only a couple drops in my last batch. As you can see, my container is not even half full, yet I'm sure this will last me at least a month. It just takes a few drops to clean your face and eliminates your need for lotion! Be sure to gently shake each time to mix the oils up.
I can't really say if there is a visible difference in my complexion. Maybe less redness? It has only been a month so I will keep you posted on what I see and feel in the future. Here are some pics for you either way!
