Before doing OCM...please read this...

Hey Everyone,

I just set up an account here to specifically warn everyone about OCM. Yes, there are many success stories, but the alternative is quite...tragic..

I will make it quick, but here is my story.

I started OCM (castor oil and olive oil) 3 months ago. The first 2 or 3 weeks when I was breaking out, I assumed this was the purging stage.. Well it definitely wasn't a purging stage, as it continued to worsen and lasted the whole 3 months I bravely continued to regimen. I started out with one or two zits once in a while to cystic acne, and a complete breakout all over my forehead. I then read about castor oil and how it can cause infections, so I think I cut this out about 2 months in and continued with just olive oil. Well, things did not get better.

It's been about a month or two since I stopped using OCM and have still been suffering the consequences. I still have some cystic pimples forming, and a lot of scars to show for my terrible "experiment".

Anyways, I don't want anyone else to go through this terrible experience..I refused to acknowledge the "bad" experiences people had, but perhaps this might deter someone from completely ruining their face!


I am now using ACV, topically and internally, and my skin is clearing up. My scars are also fading, which is awesome
