I never had perfect skin, but to me (**me prior to OCM**), a bad breakout consisted of 3 maybe 4 zits. I discovered the OCM and was hyped, hoping it would put an end to those occasional "bad breakouts" because I have always been very anal and overly concerned with my skin. **Side note, in 5th grade a boy in my class called my pizza face because I had a weird rash/zits/irritation around my nose. I'm 23 now. That shit will stick with ya. Don't be mean** So I did plenty of research on the OCM and d... Read More
As someone with moderate to severe acne since I was a teenager (and now I'm 37) I was terrified to put straight unrefined organic coconut oil on my skin, but here's my reasoning: Coconut oil is 1) antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal.. 2) Visibly attaches to and removes makeup. 3) Doesn't interfere with the "acid mantle" of the skin, so it leaves your skin to protect itself (everyone has an acid mantle that is slightly acidic to naturally kill bacteria.. It's striped away by using soap whic... Read More
Okay so first of all if you’re reading this contemplating whether or not you should give the Oil Cleansing Method a go. Don’t. Run the other way. Go use a mild cleanser instead like Physiogel (what i personally use) or something your skin works with.
BUT if you’re stubborn (like I was) and thinking to yourself, “well maybe i’m part of the LESS THAN 50% that has great results with this method! Plus I’ve already bought a bottle of jojoba and i dont wanna waste it”
Fine, Its... Read More
I've had constant acne for over a year now and a few months ago I decided that I'd had enough of having painful acne and low confidence. I did a lot of research regarding natural treatments and I found the Oil Cleansing Method. I will never go back! I'll never use chemicals on my skin again which left my skin dry, oily, irritated and covered in acne.
I decided to combine the OCM with a banana peel mask that I do 1-2 times a day so I recommend having a look at that treatment as well, as these tw... Read More
Ocm ruined my skin completely. I had the mildest form of acne and great skin apart from acne. I used OCM for a few months and suddenly one day I wake up to 3 cystic acne. I never had such acne. Then this started spreading on the sides of my forehead till the point I had to big isolated clusters of cystic acne with 10 inflamed bumps each side. My skin became red even the part where there was no acne and it seemed as if I had rosacea. A guy with clear skin suddenly having such bad Cystic acne, th... Read More
Tried the oil cleansing method because of all of the great things I heard about it, but that was a decision I was going to regret more than anything yet. I started with cleansing my face once a day with a mixture of castor oil, jojoba oil and hemp seed oil, and would afterwards moisturize with rose hip seed oil. After two weeks of treatment, my whole face is covered in inflamed pimples and cysts, and my skin is the worst it has ever been. I am so sad and devastated about the situation and I am i... Read More
I have tried OCM for three days, developed the most terrible irritation and breakouts I have ever encountered in my life (had relatively clear skin before, except some breakouts because of makeup) and here is my review on it:
(I have Master's degree in Biochemistry. If you don't agree with something I'm going to say or provide, you can leave a comment below and we can figure out it together. Also, English is not my first language, so I can make mistakes. Sorry.)
Many people use oils (ideally c... Read More
I'll start off by saying I have normal skin, I found out about oil cleansing on YouTube and thought I'd give it a try, and long story short, it didn't work. I used coconut oil and I know there's tons of different oils to use but that's what I used. It didn't really make my skin worse but it also didn't make it better. The only thing it did is make my skin a little bit smoother and softer afterwards. Although every person is different, it may work for you and it may not. ... Read More
I tried for 2.5 months, but gave up on it now after only getting more and more whiteheads and an occasional cyst. I tried a mix of castor oil, sunflower seed oil and the last month with a little Argan oil in the mixture. I massaged it in for 10 min every night, and cleaned of with fresh new washcloth and warm water. It did get a little grit off my skin, but I could still feel a lot of grit being stuck in my pores and not coming out. I just purchased acne.org regimen and hope for better results..... Read More
I have been on the Regimen for years, it is the first thing that kept my skin mostly breakout free, ever. ( thank you Dan) I am 51 and thought I would grow out of acne years ago. I found too much of the jojoba oil would break me out, so I looked for other oils. Olive, coconut, shea butter,all were terrible. Then I tried hemp oil and it was magic. I finally dared to give up the Regimen and try using only Hempseed oil. I could not believe it, works even better than the Regimen. It is green and I ... Read More
I read positive things about the OCM and since I always tend to break up a bit during the summer (looking back this is nothing), I decided to try it. After 10 days into it (I used jojoba & castor oil) I noticed that I started to break out. I immediately stopped the OCM. Now, 6 weeks later I have cystic acne all over my chin that keeps getting worse by the day and is slowly expanding to my cheeks and neck. I have never had acne like this before; never more than maybe 2-3 pimples at a time, mo... Read More
I started the oil cleansing method in '13 when I was laid off from my job and could no longer afford my meds for cystic acne. I read the article about OCM by CrunchyBetty and decided that it could never work the way she suggested so I tweaked it and still used benzoyl peroxide. It did not work at all to clear my acne. But one thing I found fascinating is that it did not make it worse either.
I stayed on this regimen and just lived with my acne being the way it was for about 6 month... Read More
