Would you like to indulge your skin with some healthy, natural face masks?

Extra virgin olive oil is a very popular product. It’s considered one of the healthiest fats for the body thanks to its high content of essential nutrients.

This oil contains significant quantities of Omega 3 and vitamin E, which help prevent premature aging caused by stress.

In fact, its active agents have been used to produce a variety of cosmetic products, especially for skin care.

However, many women prefer to include it in their beauty routine in its natural state, because it’s easy to combine with other natural ingredients that offer a lot of goodness when applied without causing undesired effects.

Since we know that many women want to make the most of what olive oil has to offer, we want to share the recipes for 5 interesting face masks.

Both ingredients are gentle on sensitive skin, and due to their anti inflammatory effects, they are ideal for calming allergies and burns.


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (32 g)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (25 g)


  • Put the two ingredients into a bowl and mix them until you have a uniform product.
  • Clean your face and apply the mask until your face is covered with a fine layer of it.
  • Leave it to act for 30 minutes and rinse.
  • Repeat 2 or 3 times a week.

2. Olive oil and coconut mask

In this combination, the fatty acids in olive oil join with the antioxidants in coconut oil to create a 100% natural anti-aging mask.

These nutrients help to conserve the skin’s firmness and at the same time create a protective barrier against the effects of the sun and free radicals.


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (32 g)
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (15 g)


  • Mix the olive oil with the coconut oil, and once you have a uniform cream, apply it on the areas of your skin that you wish.
  • Leave it to absorb completely without rinsing, so that its active agents can act all night.
  • Repeat this application at least 3 times a week.

3. Olive oil and oat mask

An olive oil and oat mask is a natural exfoliant that removes dead cells and other impurities that get stuck in your pores.

It reduces the appearance of blackheads and spots and leaves the skin with a soft and hydrated texture.

  • 1 tablespoon of oat flour (10 g)


  • Put the two ingredients in a bowl and mix them until you have a thick paste.
  • Rub the product into your whole face and leave it to act for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse with tepid water and repeat twice a week.

4. Olive oil and avocado mask

The classic  avocado pulp and olive oil face mask still stands out as a great natural product to deeply moisturize and repair the skin.

Its high content of fatty acids, vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants helps to accelerate the cellular regeneration process, as well as avoid the early appearance of wrinkles and signs of age.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (16 g)


  • Crush the flesh of the ripe avocado and mix it with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Once you obtain a creamy paste, apply it to your whole face and, if you like, your neck and upper chest.
  • Leave it to act for 30 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Repeat this twice a week.
