Olive Oil Skin Care Tips

Discover the benefits associated with these olive oil skin care tips

Olive oil is one of the best natural products for your skin, body and hair. It has an array of uses and is extremely popular in both cooking and beauty care. Olive oil skin care is extremely popular in Europe, particularly Italy, and given the perfect complexions on the women in that area, it makes perfect sense. There are many benefits associated with using olive oil: it contains antioxidant properties and absorbs UV radiation, repairs cells and prevents damage. It is also soothing, healing and incredibly moisturizing. Olive oil skin care is high in vitamin E and can be mixed in with hair conditioner to give you more shine and manageability, or it can also be dabbed lightly around the eye region to help fight wrinkles and hydrate skin in that area.

There are many other ways that you can incorporate olive oil skin care into your regular routine. You can apply a small amount across your lips for added moisture and shine and you can also rub into your nails and cuticles, which will help keep your nail beds soft. For a relaxing foot soak, pour a tablespoon of olive oil into a warm bath and soak your feet in the mixture for ten minutes, before or after a sugar scrub. You can also mix olive oil into your regular body scrub and for a before bed cleanser, dip a cotton ball into olive oil and rub across your face to remove makeup and natural oils. The olive oil will keep your skin moisturized and supple. You can even consume a tablespoon of olive oil a day by itself, or mix into your salad or other foods for more internal benefits.

I had no idea that olive oil was so helpful for skin. I have such dry skin and I hope that olive oil will be a successful moisturizer for me.
