This is my second post in the series regarding using Olive Oil to aid in maintaining proper skin health and beauty.
Believe me, there’s no better remedy than Olive Oil for skin health.
Olive Oil for Skin Health. Curing or Reducing Acne
In order to get the best results from these cures, it’s very important to use Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil that is from the producer’s first cold press. Every time you use EVOO for health and beauty treatments, this is the first step. Magic only can be done with magical stuff.
- You can use EVOO in your daily cleaning routine directly, i.e. you can take a small cup and add EVOO into it, coat your fingers in the solution and massage it softly into the affected zone (face, shoulder, etc.) in circular movements. Let it work for a few minutes, then place a warm towel over the area in order to open the pores and take out the excess oil. After that, wash the zone with cold water, dry it, and you’re done.
It’s easy and simple, but as usual, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is used in this way, as simply as EVOO is consumed on its own.
- It’s possible to make a face mask by mixing EVOO with egg whites, a tablespoon of oats, and one teaspoon of honey. Mix these ingredients softly and apply over the affected zone as a mask. Let it sit for a bit then remove with warm water and a gentle cleanser.
- For a daily or weekly routine, take note of these uses:
Daily: At night, put a teaspoon of Olive Oil into a small cup. Make sure your hands are very clean, then put a little of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together so as to make it hotter and smoother via friction. Rub the EVOO over your entire face (being careful not to get it in your eyes). Then take a clean cloth, wet it with warm water, and wring it out. Place the warm, damp cloth over your face for five minutes.
After you’ve had time to relax, wipe away the mask with a soft towel (you can wet it with hot water).
Once a week: Take a teaspoon of Olive Oil and softly, but firmly mix it with a teaspoon of brown sugar. Clean your face by rubbing this stuff over it with your fingers. This works by exfoliating the areas of your face that are acne prone. After applying the solution, put a warm cloth over your face and wait for five minutes, then clean your face in the same way as mentioned in the prior method.
I hope your skin will improve in a short time. I was in the same situation of you in the past and EVOO has definitely helped me to maintain a clear and clean face!
