adventures of a wannabe earth mama..oil cleansing

this photo is cute but completely irrelevant to this post {ha!}

about a year ago .. i started learning about all of the stuff that is in our food
the more i read the more determined i became to eat and feed my family only what i believe is real food
food the way God made it .. not the way most of the food manufacturers make it

but the thing is .. it doesn't stop there
once you start reading all about what is in our food .. that quickly and seamlessly leads you to what is in everything else you use 

so .. one night .. i looked on the back of my much loved facial cleanser and gasped at the number of ingredients .. most of which i couldn't pronounce 
that simply would not do so .. after throwing my face wash away .. i began to research natural face cleanser and stumbled upon oil cleansing

lots of people swear by this 
instead of using soap .. simply slather a mixture of oils {i used castor and coconut} on your face .. lay a warm damp cloth over your face for thirty seconds or so to allow some steam then wipe off
the posts i read did say to expect some break outs at first but not to be alarmed .. that it is simply your face getting rid of all of the built up mumbo jumbo in your pores and that the break outs would subside {after up to four weeks!!} leaving you with the healthiest most awesome skin of your life


i feel like i have pretty normal skin .. little breakouts here and there but i have been lucky to have never struggled with acne or constant breakouts

until oil cleansing came into my life that is

i had the yuckiest breakouts all over my face for a good solid six weeks until i threw in that stupid warm damp cloth and gave up on oil cleansing FOREVER

i believe it works for some people
it absolutely did not work for me

so then i did some amazon searching for a facial cleanser that is more natural than what i was using before 
it smelled nice but did not help
so now i am back to old faithful and working through the aftermath of my battle with oil cleansing

so far .. this is the only time i have found that natural might not be best
better for me i am 100% positive but i am not willing to have fifteen year old first going through puberty pimples over it
call me vain .. i just can't handle it

happy tuesday!!
