OLIVE OIL BEAUTY BENEFITS
1. Use Olive Oil to Soften Your Hands
For most of us, Olive oil is probably the most convenient oil for softening your hands.
Create Soft Shiny Hair with Olive Oil
Create an at-home hot oil treatment with olive oil to create soft, shiny hair.
Use Olive Oil to Prevent Wrinkles
Another one of the major benefits of olive oil skin care is its effect on wrinkles – it can actually help to prevent them with its antioxdant super powers.
Used directly on your skin 1-2 times a week it will do wonders for keeping your skin soft, smooth, and wrinkle-free a little longer.
Preshampoo Hair Treatment
Olive oil has been used as a hair treatment since ancient Egyptian times. First, warm the olive oil in the microwave or in hot water. Then apply it generously to the ends of hair and scalp. Leave it in for up to 10 to 20 minutes, and then shampoo it out.
Combine coarse sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil for a chapped-lip fix. You can also add a splash of lemon juice for added flavor and acidic exfoliating properties. This scrub is good enough to eat (literally). Plus, you can expand the recipe for your whole body.
. Eye-Makeup Remover
We know what you're thinking—slathering olive oil all over your face would actually cause bigger problems and clog pores. But in actuality, the oil grabs onto other oil-based products (think: Like attracts like), making it a great precleansing step to remove stubborn eye makeup. Follow it up with warm water and a pH-balanced face wash.
If you often have ear-wax buildup, turn to olive oil to flush out the clog. For three or four nights, put a few drops in the ears before bed to help loosen excess wax.
There's no need to buy a separate hair product to impart shine on second-day strands. Just rub a few drops of olive oil on flyaway ends after styling for an extra-glossy finish.
