Olive Oil: I'm an extra virgin.

Recommended Posts

Have found olive oil to be not only soothing but effective at reducing redness and creating a smooth feel. If you are afraid of over-washing (like myself), apply olive oil and let soak into the pores for a few minutes, then wash off with water and pat dry. That's my suggestion.

I prefer to wait another five minutes before using BP .

I also picked up on an older thread from Dan that suggests using chilled BP with cool water. I will do the same with Olive oil and my cleanser. My goal is to reduce redness and irritability first, while preventing new breakouts.

Olive oil had worked tremendously well when i got started on it a couple weeks ago, before I switched to using bio oil. Now its back to Olive oil due to a shaving/breakout accident that will set me back for about a month. s%$#*y!

What is your experience with Olive oil? Find it at your local grocier!

I want to try this...it's going to have to wait though. At the moment I'm experimenting with lemon juice in the morning and mandelic acid at night.

Sooo you wouldn't recommend using it if you have active acne then?
