blue and sen, how long have you been using the OCM, how often, and exactly what is the formula and process you've been using? Whatever is the issue, I'm sure with all the brains here, we can figure it out.
I use this as a pre-cleanser. I remove my makeup and crap off my face with the oil then I use african black soap to get the oil off. It works well for my doing this way. I've been using oil for the last 8+ months now. No major breakouts. I have 1 or 2 in these few months because I keep touching my face which is BAAAAD.Yeah, I really don't think I'd try the OCM. It doesn't really matter that oil solubility is the key to the method, if your pores don't play along then you end up with problems.
I guess if you're intent on trying the OCM then maybe a precleansing would be the best idea.
I forgot that my daughter also uses a drop or two of Tea Tree (this may make a big difference)!Hi Fawnie,
I've been using the DHC diluted with sunflower seed oil because I have had dry skin. It comes right off with the steaming. You might try to add something to your DHC for oily skin.
My daughter has been using castor, jojoba and a drop of rosehip. She has oily skin and acne and she is loving this method. She says that her skin has not been getting oily all day.
I'm so sorry that your having troubles. It has truly helped my dryness and large pores.
Keep us updated! Wish you luck!!
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is the goddess of cleansers for me too....I'm torn between trying something new ('cos it's in my DNA to experiment) and just to stick with what works to well....What is the point of OCM? It seems like all my problems started when I tried this...again!
My skin does fine with Aveeno Makeup Removing Cleanser, DHC Oil, Liz Earle Cleanse&Polish and/or just about anything but this!! I'm asking myself why even do this?
And now that I'm all broken out again, what can I do to undo the damage?
