Beauty and Olive Oil
By now, we all know that olive oil is really good for our health, but do you know that you can actually incorporate it in your daily beauty routine too? Some people believe applying oil, especially to acne-prone skin, will clog pores, cause breakouts, or leave a greasy film. The truth is, olive oil is closer in chemical structure to the skin’s natural oil than any other naturally occurring oil. It is easily absorbed, not greasy, and have a low potential to clog pores, which makes it perfect for all skin types.
Here are some olive oil benefits for the skin that we can’t wait to share them with you and the reasons why you shouldn’t be scared of olive oil!
Free Radical Protection
Super Virgin Olive Oil contains a rich blend of skin-loving vitamin E and hydrating olive oil which helps to fight free radicals. In the morning, massage a few drops onto clean skin, wait two minutes, and apply sunscreen or foundation as usual.
Olive oil protects the skin’s lipid barrier and are great at preventing moisture from evaporating from the skin. You can apply it directly as a moisturizer and it’s good for those who have extremely dry skin to use it as night cream. Apply a little quantity of the oil on your face at night and let it stay overnight. You will wake up to soft and supple skin in the morning.
Control Frizzy Hair
People who have frizzy hair or split ends can massage their locks with olive oil. Olive oil works great for controlling frizz. But be careful! If you apply too much your hair is going to look greasy.
Your lips are thin-skinned, and that thin skin leaves them prone to drying out or becoming chapped when they’re exposed to cold weather, dry climates, sun, wind. There’s a quick and easy solution at hand — apply a light coating of olive oil to your lips a few times a day to heal the damage and give you smooth, soft lips.
For Hands and Feet
Extra virgin olive oil massage is perfect for dry nails and cuticles. Instead of using a hand or a cuticle cream, rub a few drops into the cuticle area and around the nails. Regular usage ensures that the cuticles stay moist and nails remain shiny.
You can do the same for your feet as well. It will not only work for your nails but also prevent your heels from cracking or apply it generously on your cracked heels and wear socks and let them work and moisturize the dry skin overnight. You will wake up with soft soles in the morning.
Eye Makeup Remover
Put one or two drops of extra virgin olive oil on a cotton face pad and use it to remove your eye makeup at the end of the day. Gently remove your eye makeup without stretching and pulling the delicate skin around your eyes. As you use it, the olive oil works to soften the skin, especially when you use it as a makeup remover on a consistent basis.
When you buy olive oil, make sure you purchase the extra virgin formulation. Extra virgin olive oil has the highest nutritional value because it has undergone the least amount of processing. We recommend you the Super Virgin Olive Oil by Olive Nendoh. It effectively removes dirt, excess oil, makeup, pore-cloggers and helps to maintain the soft, smooth and supple appearance of the skin.
