The logic behind Oil Cleansing Method
The logic behind OCM is simple. Oil is used for dissolving the oil that has hardened over a period of time. The accumulated oil, along with impurities, is stuck in the pores of your skin. Cleansers fail to remove them and hence, oil is used to do away with them. Till now, you were under the impression that oils only aggravate the problem of pimples and acne! So, you preferred soaps to oils. But did you know that soaps rob your skin of the essential natural oils? Skin feels dry and your body feels the urge to produce more oil to compensate this loss of natural oil. Thus, while you strip your skin of natural oils, you ask your body to produce more and more oils. This oil in turn accumulates in the pores and gives rise to a variety of skin problems. On the other hand, if you consider using oil for cleansing, the balance is restored and build-up is removed. This in turn, prevents the appearance of skin blemishes. Steam, which comprises an integral part of OCM, helps to open up the pores to help eliminate the impurities and warm cloth helps to remove excess oil. As a result, you get fresh, clear and glowing skin.
