    @Jess:

    When I get out of the shower, I towel off, then apply the CO to my entire body and face (while my hair is still pinned up so it doesn't get greasy).

    I usually then get dressed; by the time I go back in to put make-up on, most of the CO on my face has already absorbed into the skin. I just wipe lightly with a dry towel to be sure, then put on the "war paint".


    Hope this helps ;-)

      Sorry, new to this post. So, is the Caster Oil to help with the overall condition of the skin or for softness.


      Sorry if this is a dumb question.

        @ Pauleygirl & Jess: Castor Oil is more of a 'toxicity' cleanse product when applied topically. It binds to the oils in your pores (the dirt-filled ones AND the normal/ clean ones) and helps to pull/ extract all the oil out, so a hot washcloth or steam bath will help to soften the pores & the oil for easier extraction, as well as to help expel the stuff 'outward'. Castor oil does help with softness too.


        The mixture should be 1 part Castor Oil and 2 - 3 parts 'carrier' oil, such as Almond Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, etc, since the Castor Oil is pretty darn thick and sticky.


        I do cleanse with normal cleanser in between days, although I'm not sure that it's really that necessary now that I do oil-cleansing.


        I know I've shouted this before, but I can't help but telling you what a GOD-SEND this method has been!!!! I am, as of right now, completely blemish and blocked-pore free!!!


        I even had wonderful results in clearing the pores on my upper arms by following the same Castor oil-cleansing method!

          I use coconut oil on my face and my acne is much better than before (eating paleo helps too). I take a shower and when I towel off, I don't blot my face. By the time I get all my shower stuff out of the bathroom and I'm back to my room, my face is still moist and that is when I apply a teeny tiny amount of coconut oil and spread it around (get neck and chest too, sometimes my entire body). It might look shiny for a minute or so, but by the time I am dressed it is no longer greasy. Seems like this kind of mimics the skin's natural process because I (unnaturally) wash a lot of it off with soap in the shower, therefore I am just replacing that little bit that was stripped.
