OCM can be very drying because it cleanses your face so deeply. I look much older when my skin is dehydrated, and yes, I do get lines that go away when my skin is back in balance. I do OCM but no more than once or twice a week because it really, really dried out my skin when I was doing it every other day. I would back off for a week or so and use lots of moisturizing skin products. When your skin is properly hydrated/moisturized again, you can start back up with the OCM in moderation, and don't overdo the castor oil. I use castor, but it's 1 part castor to 2 parts of another oil. Too much castor oil is very drying. Hope that helps!
2C/3A, fine, higher porosity.
