Olive oil has many beneficial uses for your skin as well as your hair and scalp. The nutrients in the oil are great for moisturizing and polishing skin. We posted a few tips for using olive oil and how they can be of use to you.
1.) Makeup Removal – Just dip a cotton pad into a small amount of olive oil and you have a natural makeup remover that isn’t filled with chemicals that will dry out the skin.
2.) Skin Moisturizer – Has your skin been feeling dry or flaky lately? Just mix 2 tablespoon coconut oil with 1 tablespoon olive oil to make a wonderful skin moisturizer that hydrates and repairs skin.
3.) Remove Dead Skin Cells – Mix 1 tablespoon olive oil with 1/2 tablespoon baking soda to make a natural exfoliant that gently scrubs away dead skin cells and keeps your pores clean and healthy.
4.) As an Under Eye Cream – If you have bags or droopy eyes from stress or hormones, applying a small amount of olive oil helps to reduce redness and swelling, taking years off your face.
5.) For Healthy Hair & Scalp – Combine baking soda, olive oil, coconut oil and a few drops of lemon juice and apply to damp hair. Makes for a great hair mask to keep the scalp clean, healthy and your hair shiny and soft.
