While watching the Today Show I was shocked to see that you can use extra virgin olive oil as a makeup remover. Do people really do this? Does it really work?

Today writes:

If you don't have makeup remover handy, or are looking for a natural way to remove your makeup, head to the kitchen. Soak a cotton ball with extra virgin olive oil and use that to remove your makeup. It will come off thoroughly without the use of harsh chemicals."

Honestly though, does it really work? Apparently it does. Enkivillage points out there are many benefits of using this. Olive oil has healthy fats that can moisturize the skin. Olive Oil is filled with vitamins A and E, which can also add moisture in the skin. Also olive oil is a great moisturizer for the hands, feet and face.

Shockingly, olive oil is also a great anti-aging lotion. Here's a few tips and tricks on how to use it properly for removing makeup.
