Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Acne Prevention

Recently, I learned that olive oil was an effective acne treatment natural. It sounded ridiculous. My acne is caused by oily skin, and hope to apply more oil to my skin? No, thanks. Not a chance. Definitely sounds like a selling snake oil. And yet ...

Being a nosy inquisitive, I decided to look into it. I looked on the internet. Read archived messages in the forums and discussion boards. Poked and stuck his nose where it was not welcome. In the end, I found mostly positive results. One group reported that they washed their faces with extra virgin olive oil, then wash with soap oil. After a week, her acne became worse. Unfortunately, he gave no more detail than this. Personally, his report did not make any sense. If you wash the olive oil, then at worst you should have no effect, right?

Most success stories reported three main ways to use olive oil for acne prevention. The first way is to use a cleaner made with this oil. A small group of friends actually conducted his own experiment. They tested three different brands of olive oil cleaner: a cheap brand of your local department store, a brand of high-end luxury boutique and other high-end brand bought from a catalog. They found that the cheap brand caused more acne, but the two different expensive brands really helped. Definitely looks like a case of getting what you pay for.

The second group of cases has successfully used this scheme:

   1. Wash with EVOO - apply a small amount on the skin, rubbing gently with fingertips in circular motions. You may notice some things hard grain. These black spots are actually evicted.
   2. Wash with glycerin soap bar - you can buy the orange bars Nutrogena sell, or use a generic brand

Some of them reported that after a few days, and not awake already oily face. After only two weeks, are less breakouts, and his skin has a healthy glow.

The third group of successes EVOO used as a kind of mask.

   1. Rinse face with warm water.
   2. Massage until a small amount of extra virgin olive oil on the skin of all the oil has soaked in.
   3. Wet the face with a clean sheet until Matts oily appearance.

After half an hour, realize that the fat gradually withdrew from the pores of the nose and cheeks. After just an hour will find that their skin is illuminated very well, without being fat.

It seems normal that extra virgin olive oil works well. No need to buy more expensive organic version. I'm more comfortable with the idea of using this oil as a wash, in the same way as removing makeup. In general, there is a method used to get rid of pimples, but a potentially cheap and effective long-term prevention of acne.
