The Use Of Olive Oil To Deal With Acne On The Face?
Hello, I want to ask, can I use olive oil all night every day for facial acne?
Thank you for the question.
Acne can occur due to inflamed pilosebaceous glands. Some people do experience acne more often, other than due to genetic factors, it is also influenced by hormonal conditions, stress, skin care they undergo, diet, age, certain skin types, and many other triggers. Although not dangerous, the recurrence of acne can certainly be very disturbing appearance.
Application of olive oil on the skin can help maintain skin moisture, thereby suppressing the production of sebum (oil) which often triggers acne formation. It's just that these efforts are not always suitable for everyone. In some people, the application of olive oil can actually make clogged pores so that acne will actually multiply. Sensitive people can also experience allergies to olive oil so that the skin will feel itchy, sore, reddened, swollen, even peeling.
Therefore, in order to get more optimal benefits from this olive oil, it is better if you consume it directly, for example by making it a mixture in food processing. In addition, so that your pimples subside, you also need to be more diligent in washing your face with a special anti-acne cleansing soap, use a moisturizer and sunscreen for every activity, keep your facial skin clean and not exposed to direct sunlight, do not squeeze or gouge. force acne that has not healed, drink plenty of water and eat fruits and vegetables, do not stress too much, and sleep early every day.
Furthermore, if your acne is very annoying and does not improve with the above efforts, immediately consult a doctor or dermatologist to find the best solution, ok?
I hope this helps.
