When my mom and uncle were younger he asked her how to get rid of his acne.  She told him “rub olive oil on your face.”  She thought he knew she was joking…  He coated his face in olive oil and broke out worse than ever.  He still reminds her of it to this day haha.

Anyways, I haven’t heard of this method but I have extremely oily skin, plus acne, plus large pores so I definitely wouldn’t be a candidate for this treatment.

I use oil-based cleansers a lot and they’re excellent for congested skin. You have to apply and massage in and then remove with a hot flannel but it is fantastic and doesnt strip your skin.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it worked! Along with a clean diet/exercise, I noticed my skin getting much clearer when I started using an oil as a moisturizer. It seems counterintuitive, but my face is much less shiny and greasy now because it’s properly moisturized. I only get a bit of hormonal breakouts at this point, and that’s going away too.

I’ve heard of it and only did it once…but I’d say it’s worth a shot…the logic behind it seems…logical.

Have heard great things, but I’m prone to cystic acne on the lower part of my face and am weary of anything of the sort. I tried using a vegetable squalene facial oil for moisturizing bc it’s very dry here in winter, and I’m paying for it dearly with this thing with a pulse growing beneath the skin.  Ugh!  It was the only thing different I tried in my regular routine, so by process of easy elimination, no more oil anything for me.

Please do tell if it works for you!

Olive oil is a pretty fabulous beauty multitasker. Shave your legs with it, massage it into your cuticles, use it on the ends of your hair… It’s just awesome stuff! Good luck with your new regimen! 🙂

I’ve heard of it, and heard people have had fantastic results, but haven’t tried it myself. Please update us in a few weeks 🙂

I tried OMC a couple of years ago (used to get painful cystic acne, now it’s more normal – zits and pimples and red blemishes but better than it used to be!), and it was … okayish. I had a hard time getting my face fully rinsed, and the whole process just took too long for me. It didn’t seem to improve my skin, but this could be that I did get it all off.

I researched this method of cleansing on cosmetics cop, and found that they don’t recommend it. This is what they had to say:

“The flaw in their logic is that it assumes oily, blemish-prone skin is simply oil on the surface, when in reality it is far more complicated than that.

Your skin produces oil in response to the hormones your body produces. The fact that this excess oil is being generated all the time explains why your skin is greasy throughout the day.

Dissolving oil from the surface of your skin cannot affect what is happening below the surface, inside the pore, or in your body, where these hormones are generated. Using cleansing oil may remove facial oil from the surface of your skin, but that’s about all it can do.”
