Olive Oil Skin Treatment

Author : Constantine Kara

Olive Oil helps to slow the aging process of the skin and increases the skins ability to retain moisuture.

Olive oil for skin care can prove quite beneficial, since it is rich in all kinds of nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins which are great for the body, whether you choose to eat it, or use it on your skin.

When cleansing and moisturizing your skin, it is imperative that you keep in mind that oil dissolves oil.
Do not be afraid of applying oil to your face.

Oil, alone, will not cause you blemishes.
Pimples, cysts, zits, blackheads and whiteheads are a result of several different factors including hormones, bacteria, dead skin cells and the buildup of these factors.

Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. It is not a malicious force to be reckoned with, it is there for the benefit of your skin. It is naturally occurring.
Oil helps lubricate, heal, protect, and moisturize your skin so that it may function properly. Properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear, and glowing.

In addition to the internal health benefits of olive oil, topical application is quite popular with fans of natural health remedies.

Extra virgin olive oil is the preferred grade for moisturizing the skin, especially when used in the oil cleansing method (OCM).

OCM is a method of cleansing and moisturizing the face with a mixture of extra virgin olive oil, castor oil (or another suitable carrier oil) and a select blend of essential oils.

The oil cleansing method, often abbreviated to OCM, is a system for cleaning a human face using oils.

The basic method uses a mixture of 80% extra virgin olive oil and 20% castor oil.
The mixture can be optimized based on skin type and personal preference.
Oily skin can make use of a larger proportion of castor oil.
Other oils that are commonly used are sunflower oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil.

In this beauty treatment, the oil is rubbed into skin for approximately two minutes. Next, a warm, damp wash cloth is draped over face until it cools.
A cooled wash cloth is then used to wipe off the excess oil with continued rubbing.

One or two drops of olive oil or another oil may be used to moisturize the skin after the cleansing oil has been removed from the face.

When Olive Oil is mixed with other Phytoplex (mix of plant oils) products, the benefits to the skin are amazing.
