Last year ,in February, I did one of the maga mistake of my life( Well,I have done so many so far).I was so psyched about one of my personal thing(getting married),wanna be perfect for that(did not happen then,so better leave this holy spot.I messed there too,my many drams ,and I ) .Bottom line is that I just wanted to be so beautiful.My skin is dry and it was winter .I wanted some thing legit, which make my skin soft .I hate my dry skin,but I never had pimple ,bums, zits or any acne ,never, yeah. It was dry but clean ,only blackheads and whiteheads. So hoping to get rid of the blackheads and whiteheads.Nothing else.In nutshell my skin was really quite good.I was fool .
I Googled .That time I was so much in to natural things.Biggest err,believe me. Natural things are for eating .......tomato scrub , banana mask,etc,etc .They are all wrong.Better eat them .Those who are doing it,keep doing ,I am done with food materials.
Anyway,I found "Oil cleansing method".Did not I know my skin is dry, and I don't have oil problem ?And if this theory is real ,then it was not for me .I was blind ,and could not make sense of it They were saying it is best way to get clear skin.
The argument is that like matter attracts like matter, “Oil dissolves oil”, and by rubbing olive oil all over your face, you’re actually dissolving the “bad” oils in your skin.
Anyway,at that time,like I said,I did not have acne,pimples, blemishes, rashes or outbreaks.I was blind and greedy,wanted more better skin.After reading them,I become more hyper,because all testimonials were great,everyone was using it.The more I dig,more I find it glorified.I only search, and did not council with anyone .I might have talk about it ,but anyway ,when things have to get worst,no one can stop it .I also told this to all my friend .Thank God, they find using oil on their face gross, and did not take a stap.
Most important things was that it was easily available,cheap and under my league.You need only two oil.First, make a ratio according your skin type ,and start with a generous puddle of oil into the palm of your hand. Roughly, the size of a quarter, but more is acceptable. Rub your hands together to warm the oil and smooth over your face.Once you're done with massage , pick up your washcloth and soak it in clean, steamy water. You want the water to be warm enough to open your pores and remove the oil.For detail you can google it.Oddles websites will tell you how to do it.Please don't do it .
Yay, I had that ,what else? I started the OCM, using olive oil mixed with coconut oil .When I first started, I did get rid of a lot of sebum plugs and blackheads, skin become like baby soft ,so I was very happy and excited ,everything was going smooth .Result was great .I though some purging going on.I had done this just twice for two consecutive weeks .
Then I stared use it on daily basis .After that,I had two cystic pimples on my chin.I did not give much attention to it ,they gone after week .I also reckon that it is because of coco oil,and weather was also changing too,April started ,so I changed Coco oil in to Almond oil .I also felt Almond oil was too drying ,so after using couple of week,I added drops of mineral oil. The most dangerous thing !!!!I don't know what was in my heart and small mind !
It started in February and it's been three months and my skin was in it's best condition.Every one was praising it .I got pumped with happiness.Don't know what went wrong .I might jinx it ,and then in May, the horror started.
I got break out ,first time in my life .I have had full blown acne, massive red cyst type bumps on my chin . My cute chin was targeted.My skin gone mad.I mean really mad,then I have had very painful cystic acne , and skin texture was worse than ever.
I Googled more ,and found that OCM is best for acne ,I start using it twice a day to get rid of that viscus circle.I tried to play with mix ratio and even added some mustard oil in it ,but nothing worked.It was disaster .
I stalled the OCM after May.June started . Things got outta my hand . I was that ignorant that I did not know that the oil has clogged all my pores and eventually I was going to have to face more acne.It become visible to everyone.My mother asked me what the hell I did, I said it is because of the Ponds moisturizer.My baby Ponds :( I blamed it.I lied.She would had kill me,but she knew that I had done something ,so left me to face the music.
My face was disgusting to look at. I have been embarrassed to go to weddings, and social events. They have been very hard to cover with make-up too, and I was also in a lot of pain
I decided to go dermo,alone .I could not fix that err myself,anymore .My kind dermo ,mend it .He dubbed some kind of acne,which I never heard in my life before. So it was horrifying to hear that. He told me that it is caused by bacterias living on the surface of skin. He told me I probably over did OCM .
I cried so bad . It is not as simple as that.Story did not finish here.I spend hundreds of rupees on my sin.It took more than four month, till September, I was with my sinful skin .Those skin care medicine were so expensive .If I had new these things were gonna happen ,I might get some thing better from those money ,I gave given to dermo and for medicine .
I stall everything,once and for all:skin routine,normal cleansing,toning and moisturizing,facials,even my favorite oily foods.Yes,every thing was triggering up my hormones or skin,I don't know what crap was that, and was giving rise my pimples to pop up.I got biggest lesson of my life .Slowly things got improving.
Today is February 8th , same day I stared that crap ,believe me ,till now ,I'm hunted by these pimples.They are cysts acne, which comes occasionally.My skin become pore to that kind of acne .I really did not know that oils are for cooking purpose only ,how could I be that fool?
There is no truth in this theory of “Oil dissolves oil” .It is all monkey shit .The fact of the matter is this – oil clogs pores. If you go rubbing oil all over your face, you are going to get zits,pimples, acne,etc,etc. Maybe not the first day, maybe not even the second day, but it is going to happen eventually. This is OIL ,how can oil do this?Believe me, because they are so viscous that they does not goes really into the skin,.and we also don't clean our skin properly after using them.
