I like to use extra virgin olive oil as a means of softening my skin. When I wash my face, I use a mild soap and then rinse,carefully blotting my face afterward with a towel. Then I dot a small amount of olive oil on the four points of my face (forehead, chin, left cheek, and right cheek). Then I rub and massage the oil from those points all over my face. When I bathe, I apply 3 tablespoons of the oil into my bathwater to give my skin more softness.
