If you've unfortunately got acne scarring then you're probably looking for the best and most effective ways to reduce that scarring. You may have heard about using olive oil for acne scars, and want to know whether or not it is an effective option for you. People have sworn by it while others have said that all it leaves them with is a greasy face! Let's have a look and see if olive oil for acne scars is worth it.
Let's be straight here: olive oil for acne scars is not all that effective at treating the scars. What it does however is clean your face very gently and very effectively. If you've ever baked a load of focaccia bread and had to dab olive oil all over it, you'll know just how good it is to sticking to everything! Your skin included. What the olive oil does is very effectively wash out your skin so that all that dirt and dead skin and other gunk is removed, allowing oxygen and other oils to be moved out through your skin.
So why would you want to use olive oil instead of that soap that you have in your bathroom? Well, olive oil is very natural. Very natural indeed. The same cannot be said for the soap you have in your bathroom. It's also exceptionally gentle on your skin. Yes, you will need to use a lot of water to get it all off once you're done applying it.
Olive oil for acne scars is very effective at letting your skin do what it does best - heal itself. So because of the greasy mess that it makes, apply it once a day, preferably before you go to bed. This will remove all the gunk and toxins from the day and allow sleep to cleanse your face. If you're a performer and deal with makeup a lot, this is a must.
You probably apply make up during the day (not just performers) which is very harsh for your skin and doesn't allow it to breath. You then (at least I hope you do!) wash it off at the end of the day which applies more toxins. No wonder things aren't improving! Olive oil for acne scars is one of the best things that you can do. It might not work for you as it has for others, but it's worth a shot.
