The oil cleansing method, often abbreviated to OCM, is a system for cleaning a human face using oil(s). Sometimes, oils can be mixed; one example is 50% extra virgin olive oil and 50% castor oil. This mixture can be optimized based on skin type and personal preference. Oily skin can make use of a larger proportion of castor oil. Other oils that are commonly used are mineral oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, and grapeseed oil.
In this beauty treatment, the oil is rubbed into skin for approximately two minutes. Next, a warm, damp microfiber wash cloth is draped over face until it cools. This is to steam the face and open up the pores to further remove impurities from the skin. The wash cloth is then used to wipe off the excess oil. Applied sparingly, oil may be used to moisturize the skin after the cleansing oil has been removed from the face.
