How to Clean Your Face With Olive Oil

Bryan Sander/Demand Media

Olive oil is natural way to restore moisture to your skin. Because of its moisturizing properties, olive oil can be combined with another ingredient to effectively clean the skin. Unlike other facial cleansers, the olive oil mixture won't strip the face of its natural oils, which can leave skin feeling tight and dry.
