      I’ve heard of people putting
      olive oil on their face, but do not have personal experience with
      this.

      I do! I keep a small glass dropper bottle of it in my

      medicine cabinet and use it twice a day. It only takes

      a drop or two to smooth into your entire face and neck.

      It absorbs very quickly, and has no odor when absorbed.

      I put my makeup on right over it with no problems. I

      use the same evoo that i cook with.

      i also use vaseline/petroleum jelly when my skin

      gets really dry. again, just a very tiny amount

      applied to slightly damp skin – no moisturizer

      can actually put moisture back in to your skin,

      but the olive oil and the petroleum jelly can

      hold it in for awhile.

      i also would second what whoopzdaisy said

      about behavior – cigarette smoking and

      alcohol consumption can be very damaging

      to your skin. also train yourself to drink

      the right amount of water – you’ll be amazed

      what it will do for your hair as well as your

      skin – and always use sunscreen on your face –

      uv damage is one of the #1 causes of wrinkling.

      Exfoliating gently on a regular basis can help

      hold the fine lines/wrinkles at bay – you can

      use a bit of finely ground oatmeal added to

      your regular cleanser to accomplish this.

      I’d also recommend going to your local

      public library and looking for Paula Begoun’s

      book “Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter

      Without Me” – she’s a breath of fresh air

      explaining what all those different

      ingredients in skin care and makeup products

      really are and what they really can do/can’t

      do. She has very economical suggestions for

      skin care – including using hydrogen peroxide

      on blemishes instead of fancy/expensive

      store-bought preparations, and avoiding

      all skin care products with alcohol because

      they’ll dry skin out no matter what the

      package claims. She has her own product

      line and I use a couple of items from it –

      they’re not cheap, but they are very

      reasonable, and they do for me what they

      claim to do.
