How to have soft facial skin..

If you tend to have oily skin this may not be for you but I have very dry skin so I'm not sure about oily skin.
Instead of using the various cleansing creams and face washes in the market, which by the way, contain chemicals, I switched to using pure olive oil for face cleaning. If you want to know how to use olive oil for face cleansing, then here is the simple method for it.
Take a small amount of virgin olive oil in your palms and apply it on your face. You do not need to wash your face with any soap or cleanser prior to its application. Use circular motions so that the oil reaches all the parts of the face, especially the creases of the nose, which normally get overlooked.
Continue massaging for about two minutes. There are many benefits of olive oil for facial skin cleansing. Olive oil helps in dissolving the oil, dirt, makeup or any other impurities that get deposited in the skin pores. Post massaging, leave the oil on the face for about thirty seconds.
Now take a washcloth and dip it in hot water. Rinse it slightly and then put it on your face. This will help in steaming your face and thus, remove the impurities in the skin pores which have already been loosened by the olive oil. Keep the washcloth on the face for about ten minutes.
After the face steaming has been done, remove the wash cloth. Splash cold water on your face and clean it thoroughly so that oil is completely removed. Remember not to rub or pull your face skin while cleaning. Regularly washing your face with olive oil, will make your skin soft, supple and fresh.
