Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Is extra virgin olive oil okay to use on dry skin on my face?


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Extra virgin olive oil can be used on your face, except if your skin is acne-prone. Sometimes, people with this type of skin may experience periods when their facial skin becomes drier, often due to cold weather or climate conditions. Extra virgin olive oil contains high levels of vitamin E and has good penetration into the skin, resulting in effective moisturization.
