I’ve been a sufferer of acne for seventeen years. In one quick swoop I went from teenage acne to cystic adult acne – no gaps in between.
Seeing other women with fresh, clear skin has always made me envious.
When I first read about oil cleansing, I screwed up my nose in disgust. Adding more oil to my face? You’ve got to be kidding!
It was probably sheer desperation that took me from that original gasp of horror to standing in the bathroom with a puddle of oil in each hand.
Four years on, I’m so glad I gave it a shot.
Sure, my skin still isn’t the dewy, glowing skin you see in magazines. But I have seen a marked improvement through oil cleansing.
The biggest and most immediate difference I noticed when I began oil cleansing was that my skin actually stopped being so oily. And this naturally resulted in less pimples.
I also often get told I look many years younger than I actually am (and that can never be a bad thing, can it?).
