Looking for a good facial cleanser void of any harsh chemicals or detergents that may actually cause you even more skin trouble? Try what those in ancient times did: olive oil.
Olive Oil facial cleansers offer a lot of benefits over many over-the-counter varieties. First, they are all natural and secondly they work great for a fraction of the cost.
Whether you mix up your own cleanser or buy one already made from your favorite all-natural skin care company doesn’t really matter as long as it contains a good quality extra virgin oil.
A great all around emollient, olive oil has been used for centuries to help reduce wrinkles and replenish lost moisture to the skin. It an also help to replenish any nutrients lost from over exposure to the sun, making skin look and feel smoother and softer in no time.
Generally used as a base for other skin care ingredients, the absolute best one to use for any facial cleanser is the oil from the first pressing (also called extra-virgin), since it is the freshest and less acidic. Although other olive oils are good, nothing beats using the first-pressed oil in any type of skin care products and/or cleansers.
Rich in vitamin E, olive oil facial cleansers are a gentle way to scrub away excess oils and dirt from the skin without the risk of an allergic reaction or chemical damage that some synthetic ingredients can cause.
Of course some of these cleansers can have a pretty potent smell, so, unless you love smelling like an olive, you’ll want to choose one that also offers some sort of natural fragrance included.
One thing to keep in mind when using an all-natural olive oil based skin cleanser, scrub or salve: fresh products can become rancid if stored at room temperature for more than 4-6 months. Be sure to refrigerate any of these cleansers you may have for best results.
While these cleansers have made a resurgence in popularity in recent years, many skeptics argue that they are little more than a good moisturizer. Although it is a fantastic moisturizer, especially for dry skin sufferers, many skin care experts dispute these claims, offering sound proof that these products do indeed help to rejuvenate skin and reduce wrinkles.
