I want to apologize for my lack of posting in the last week. Forgive me? ;o)
Things have been even more hectic than usual..but I'm seriously enjoying every second of it!
Our Missions Conference last week was such a wonderful time!
The Lord truly blessed all who attended!
There are some exciting things happening in my life and in our church because of it.
Once I get all these ideas out of my head and get the ball rolling, I will share with you guys what is going on.
I can't wait!
On a completely unrelated note, I wanted to share with you guys a post I read yesterday.
Caroline over at The Modest Mom posted this the other day about cleansing your face with oil. When I first began reading it, I thought "That's crazy! I would break out even more from oily-overkill on my face!". Then when I read the concept behind it and all the facts about it, I was intrigued.
So, I decided that I am going to give it a try. I am not really a "crunchy" person (although I probably should be), so the "all-natural" and "chemical-free" part is not what draws me to try it. It is more because I have tried every over-the-counter face wash, acne product available and they have all failed, so...why not?
Last night, I did it with just Extra Virgin Olive Oil because that is all I had. I must say that my face felt so clean and soft afterwards (and still does). I will probably just do it at night. Today I am going to pick up some Castor Oil and Tea Tree Oil to try to come up with a winning formula that works for me.
My face breaks out constantly, whether I wear make-up or not, usually. I am going to try the Oil-Cleansing Method (OCM) for a month and wear make-up as little as possible and see what happens. I am excited for the moisturizing that the EVOO is supposed to provide, because my face dries out so badly during Winter.
Also, to go along with the "natural" facial care idea, I am going to make a Brown Sugar Facial Scrub. I have used this before and it works beautifully and it super easy to make.
The recipe can be found here.
I will keep you guys informed on whether the OCM works for me or not.
Have any of you ever tried something like this? How did it work for you?
Have a blessed Tuesday!
