You still don’t know how to use olive oil as a facial cleanser, do you? Urgently correct an oversight! You can clean the face with olive oil rather often than using cosmetic lotions.

It will cost you much cheaper than high quality gels or foams for washing and it’s better than the usual soap because it does not dry your skin.

One more benefit is that after that cleanser it’s not necessary to use any face cream.

Natural oil is not only cleans, disinfects and nourishes the skin. It has many advantages that you can read here. We’ll talk awhile about another one.

Take extra virgin olive oil prepared for using before. How to do it step by step was described in the next article.

Heat up the oil before use. Place the container with it in hot water for 5 minutes. You can add 2-3 drops of aromatic oil of mint or pine.

Perhaps you prefer a different certain scents. Mainly important things are these oils could be mixed together without residue and of course you should enjoy the smell and flavour of what you’ve got.

If you like to make a deep cleaning first wash your face with warm water and a soft sponge.

Take a small old terry towel or a piece of soft cotton cloth. Make holes for eyes and nose, but that is not necessary.


Hide your hair not to stain them. Apply warm olive oil onto your face with a cotton pad or ball. Soak the cloth in hot water, squeeze it out and put it on your face already smeared in warm olive oil. Press the cloth to the face and relax for 15 minutes.

If the cloth becomes cool get it into the hot water again. Repeat this 3-4 times.

Be careful. Water temperature should be comfortable and acceptable for the face skin.
