Once a week, I apply a mix (4 parts olive oil: 4 parts jojoba oil: 1 or 2 parts castor oil) to my face right after shaving. Then shower. At end of shower, rinse face with water. Wash face with usual cleanser. Rinse. Blot dry. Basically, the oil-cleanse mixture is on my face for a few minutes and then washed off. It cleans the pores and moisturizes. MinnMD
