So I’m browsing the articles over at Simple Mom when I come across this article in her green and frugal living section about washing your face with natural and cheap homemade cleansers.

A cleanser like oil.

Yes, you read that right. I too did a double-take.

In How to Clean Your Face Naturally, she advocates washing with extra virgin olive oil and castor oil (something I’ve never purchased or used). I’m very curious to try this as my skin is a freakish combination of oily/dry and will randomly break out with acne while other times it’s perfectly clear.

So curious to see how my little experiment with this goes. It is cheaper and definitely easy on the environmental impact.

So be honest – would you wash your face in oil? W
