The Roots of Olive Oil
We are seeing a return back to natural products or ingredients. One of the forgotten miraculous ingredients is olive oil. Olive oil trees date back to ancient Greece, 7th century BC when oil was used by the Spartans who used to rub themselves while exercising to highlight the beauty of the male body.
It is a natural and hypoallergenic moisturizer to skin while being an antioxidant with Vitamin A and E to heal and renew sun damage, environmental pollution and unhealthy diet. Its antioxidants have the power to fuel cells and help the skin to be firmer and smoother.
Olive oil contains polyphenols, which are antioxidants and are compared to tocopherols (are a family of vitamin E compounds naturally found in vegetable oils, nuts, fish and leafy green vegetables), traditional antioxidant used by the health and beauty industry to prevent skin damage. Apart from being great as a salad dressing olive oil has many skin and hair benefits including reducing ageing and skin damage both in young and older people.
My experience with a particular condition
A particular use for olive oil is for psoriasis on my head which I got from being stressed out. Simply massage olive oil on your head, wrap in a plastic head cap and leave for 20mins. Then simply shampoo as usual.
There are numerous and inexpensive benefits in a bottle of
olive oil. There is an extremely wide selection of olive oil beauty products for skin, body and hair.
Olive oil has multiple uses in skin and body care. This rich emollient helps the skin to retain its moisture and smoothness when it penetrates deeply. It is most effective when applied to damp skin as water helps the skin feel less greasy. Extra virgin olive oil is most suited. Adding a few drops of lemon juice provides a refreshing sensation.
The natural benefits of olive oil beauty products take longer to be absorbed into the skin than most lightweight mass produced skin products. But the results last longer.
Olive oil is a gentle exfoliator for dry and scaly skin.
Mix olive oil and sea salt in a rub and massaging it into the affected area to slough off dead skin and enrich the healthy layer beneath it. Or mix in a drop or two of lavender essential oil with olive oil in a bath for a luxurious way to relax, soothe and moisturize the whole body.
Extra virgin olive oil is perfect as nail and cuticle oil. Just use it as any normal cuticle oil around the nail for moist cuticles and natural shiny nails.
Eye Makeup Remover and Anti Wrinkle
A drop or two of extra virgin olive oil on a cotton pad is all you need to remove eye makeup and gently moisturizing the skin around your eyes smoothing out wrinkles.
