I'm not sure what's going on, but I have a few pimples at the moment - just normal ones, but around my hairline, so maybe I'm not rinsing carefully enough when I OCM. Or if going to a different (hotter) climate last week may have been the culprit. It's only been recently though. Good news is though that since starting OCM every night (and moisturising with jojoba oil every time after cleansing) I haven't had a massive hormonal/cystic/PMS pimple!!
TekkaMakki, I use jojoba oil every day and night. My skin loves it. But some people can react to it. If you are a makeupalley.com member search the reviews on jojoba oil- they might be able to be of some assistance. I have found I don't need to exfoliate as much with the OCM because my flannel does the scrubbing for me. Although something mild like a Dr Hauschka/Jurlique-type face wash cream is what I use when I do exfoliate.
^I use that cleanser, its great!! Although it is a little pricey so I might try something else.
I used OCM for like 3 months and while it really did improve the quality of my skin underneath but it made my spots worse, so I stopped using it. I would have loved for it to be really good as I'm all for natural skin care
It really depends on the oil you use, you may want to try different ones. Jojoba made me break out badly...as did certain high-quality cosmetic extra virgin olive oils. So far, grapeseed oil has given soft and clear skin like nothing else; they say it's the lightest and recommended for oily/breakout prone skin. And you can also try blending some drops of teatree/lavender in the oil.
I felt like I was going to wake up with a face full of pimples.
I swear, I've had this problem for the past days because of the sudden change of weather, my face was getting small pimples around my hairline and around my nose, but today, they seemed to be a bit less visible.
My skin was glowing, soft and felt balanced. I didn't need to use a moisturizer, even after shaving.
Now today is my first day out on the sun, I will not use this method on the day because its so nasty outside, I wont need the extra oil and moisture. So let's see what happens on day one and night two. I think my best balance for this is doing the OCM at night, and Cetaphil and after shaving oil if needed on the morning.
needless to say, im very excited!
