Use Olive Oil To Clean Your Face?
Hello … r n r nGood afternoon doctor, I want to ask. I have oily skin and breakouts often. How do you clean your make up with extra virgin olive oil? Is it safe? Thank you…
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Olive oil is a type of fat or oil that is considered to have many benefits both when consumed in food, as well as in terms of cosmetics as a make-up cleanser / cleansing oil, overcoming dry skin, moisturizing skin, as well as a mask.
This is because olive oil tends to be free of paraben chemicals which are considered dangerous, natural and do not eliminate natural oils on the face. When applied to the lips, olive oil can play a role in overcoming chapped lips and softening dry and cracked skin on the elbows and heels.
However, in your case, because you have skin that tends to be oily and acne prone, the use of olive oil should be used with more caution because one of the causes of acne is an oily face. Olive oil can still provide benefits for acne prone skin, but the levels will be affected by the condition of your face at that time. If you are in doubt, we suggest that you first consult your problem with a dermatologist to see if your facial skin is really acne-prone and whether using olive oil is the right choice for you.
