How to Clean Your Face With Mineral Oil How to Clean Your Face With Mineral Oil

Overview

Mineral oil has been used in cosmetic products for more than 100 years. It is the product of distilled petroleum, and because of its origins has been the subject of several myths and accusations by both natural product companies and advocates for mineral oil. The largest of these accusations is that mineral oil is loaded with carcinogens, but the Food and Drug Administration has cleared mineral oil as carcinogen-free, according to The Beauty Brains website. Mineral oil can be used as a face cleanser to clear away dirt and pollutants and to help protect your skin from scourges of acne and other skin problems.

Step 1

Wash your face with the facial soap you normally use. This will clean the surface to let your skin enjoy the maximum benefits of mineral oil.

Step 2

Rinse your skin with water and pat dry.

Step 3

While still damp from being washed, place a nickel- or quarter-sized dab of mineral oil into your hands. Spread it on your hands and apply to your face, rubbing over your skin for 20 to 30 seconds. Keep your eyes closed while doing this--while not toxic to your eyes, it may cause discomfort.

Step 4

Rinse with water and pat dry with a cloth or towel.
