Alternative Skin Care
Good day! Sorry if this post comes off as odd, I am having to write in a hurry.|
I started OCM about a week and a half ago. I use around fifty-fifty castor oil and extra virgin olive oil, with some drops of essential oil (frankincense at the moment. No particular reason, it was just what I had on hand!)
I had bad blackhead problems along my chin, my temples and my forehead. My skin has improved, albeit very gradually. The article I found out about OCM in mentioned I might feel sandy, gritty bits under my fingers while massaging the oil in, but the last two times, there's been much more gritty gross stuff and I can see large specks of gross black grit on my hands. The reason I'm confused is that my blackheads are bad but not THAT bad! I don't know where they could be coming from. Is this normal?
I've also had a break-out under my chin (and a cyst but that's probably my terrible diet the last few days :P). I assumed that this was just the usual break-out but is it possible there's some allergic reaction going on here?
Sorry for the daft questions, I tried googling this but no luck!
