Olive Oil: The Natural Moisturizer

Finding a great moisturizer is no easy task, but it’s also not impossible; you just need to know what to look for.

Today, too many moisturizers feature harsh chemical products that can sometimes do more damage than good. For this reason, it is important to consider using olive oil moisturizers as a natural way to moisturize your skin and keep it healthy. It is advantageous to use a skin-care product containing olive oil rather than using olive oil by itself though. By using a product, you benefit from this natural moisturizer, as well as from other active ingredients that work together to help improve your skin. Perhaps even more important though, by using a skin-care product with olive oil, you can ensure you are getting a high-quality olive oil.

When olive oil is used as a skin moisturizer, it helps the skin reclaim its natural oil balance. It can be applied to dry skin all over the body from face to feet. Olive oil can also be used in a number of other beneficial ways. For example, it can help improve dry and brittle nails as well as dry and cracked lips.

Soften and Moisturize while you Sleep

Many people long for soft and smooth skin, but do not necessarily have the time during the day to take care of this desire. Olive oil moisturizers can help soften and moisturize your skin while you sleep.

The following 3 easy steps taken before bed can help moisturize your skin; it is as simple as that:

  1. Wash your face thoroughly, yet gently.
  2. Apply thin layer of olive oil moisturizer on face (remember to include the delicate under eye area).
  3. Fall asleep as usual and benefit from softer, smoother skin.

Perfect for Sensitive Skin

Olive oil polyphenols are important antioxidants (natural anti-inflammatories) that provide numerous benefits to the skin. One of the best characteristics of olive oil products are their sensitive nature on skin. Olive oil moisturizers are gentle and non-irritating for those who have even the most sensitive skin.

To conclude, olive oil offers many benefits, including the following:

  • All-natural approach to better skin
  • Easy way to moisturize (while you sleep)
  • Exceedingly gentle, non-irritating, and safe product for even extremely sensitive skin

  1. This is one of my all time fav Perricone products.


  3. I wonder if Dr.Perricone would advocate pure shea butter, as well.

  4. I have psoriasis on my face. It is extremely difficult to find products that are great.I try to avoid prescriptions whenever possible. I have found that olive oil has helped at times but it is very difficult to wear under make-up. I think this product could help! I would love to test it out and write about my experience. I belong to a Psoriasis group who would also find the info helpful!

  5. I would like this for my husband. He has really dry skin and I don’t…so I don’t always know what to give him to help. This might.
