Good for the inside and outside of you! Olive oil is reknown for its cosmetic uses for thousands of years! Olea europaea can be found in many of your present-day formulations.

It's in many products but I wouldn't just use straight up evoo & smear it on myself as a moisturizer. Some do, I guess.

It's just too greasy for me. I break out when I use it on my face in most capacities. I do use it in a home made sugar scrub for my face, but I don't use it daily and I need to wash off the oil residue afterwards or I will break out then too.

I can't stand the smell. EWWW.

I had a neighbor from India who looked like Selma Hayek. She smeared Vasoline all over her face every time she took a shower, then afterward, used a warm, wet washcloth to remove it.

She look 15 yrs younger than her actual age.

Genetics? Probably. But she never used anything but Vaz as did her mom and other female relatives/friends from home and they all swore by it.

many of our grandmothers used the natural, raw ingredients on their face, hands, skin and never had the problems of what we're seeing today.

i wouldn't have a problem with putting olive oil on my skin ... actually preferring the extra virgin. just use a light touch.

why mix it with other ingredients and chemicals first, rather than using it in its raw state?

I had the same experience with EVOO.

DHC puts some kind of olive oil in so many of their products. When I tried a few items several years ago, I broke out so badly and my pores got clogged up. Spent quite a bit of money on facials to get my skin cleared up. Never again! I would love to try argan or maracuja oil, but I'm too afraid.

I wonder if it gets rid of wrinkles. Still trying to find the cure for that one! Thanks for the info. Newbie here loving all of the great tips!

I can't stand the smell of olive oil...makes me gag big time and my skin is too oily, but I would have to use a clothespin on my nose so I wouldn't smell the awful stuff.

I don't and would never use oils on my skin. It just sits there all greasy and what good does that do.

I thought there were particulates in regular olive oil and that's why you shouldn't put on your face. The stuff from DHC is filtered. I have used squalene oil which is purified from olives and it is nice in the winter.

They just said really good for everyones skin that it was full of antioxidents.

I've been thinking it wouldn't be long until olive oil was the new argan oil - it is full of interesting phytochemicals and antioxidants. I use it to remove make up - I take a small palm full and massage it into my face, rub it off with a paper towel and then wash my face with my usual cleanser -works great!

Different people have different noses, to be sure, but I don't think it smells bad unless it's getting a little old. I keep mine in the fridge because it's hot here, and it smells a little greenish, but not strong or bad.

poodlpoo, I know. I got on the olive oil bandwagon about 15 years ago when it was the big craze. Just ended up with a bunch of breakouts and greasy skin.

This gives me the smoothest hands: Slather on the olive oil, put on rubber gloves and then do your dishes and any cleaning & scouring work with really hot water. Also good for peeling or brittle nails. Cheap & easy beauty treatment.

Fillers and surgery! That's what works! Then creams and oils to keep it smooth! That's my new motto and no more spending a fortune on creams. My fortune will be spent on what really works!

Does this mean the new truffle oil is worthless?

Christina Carlino from Philosophy used to recommend that everyone take a spoonful of olive oil daily to help with skin hydration. She said that it was the best thing you can do for your skin.

Sophia Loren has said many times that the only thing she would ever put on her skin is olive oil. Extra Virgin, of course.

I wouldn't mind it but would have to use it very lightly as I don't think my skin would absorb much of it. What I don't want is a greasy shower floor.
