Some of you may be dedicated viewers of cooking shows, but did you know that olive oil is not just for cooking, but also for skincare?
Olive oil comes from olives, which grows on trees that are mostly originated from the Mediterranean region. People that live in this region are admired for their longevity and their lustrous hair and skin. This may be attributed to the consumption of olive oil, which is a main staple in their diets and beauty regimen. Its use is growing in popularity, as more people are starting to realize the overall health benefits of olive oil.
Olive oil contains antioxidants that can benefit more than your heart. It fights the signs of aging and gives you a more youthful appearance, because this substance prevents cell destruction. Olive oil moisturizes and softens dry skin, when applied topically. Adverse reactions are not common, since the product is natural.
Olive oil possess more than 80 percent oleic acid, which easily penetrates the skin, and allows the oil to improve texture, reduce wrinkles and heal damaged skin. It becomes problematic with a lot of commercial skincare products, because the moisturizing ingredients they contain don't penetrate the skin.
Some people struggle with dry, brittle hair, but by keeping a bottle of olive oil on hand, you can help the problem. Olive oil can be used in the place of products that contain silicone ingredients, as a weekly deep conditioner, to make the hair more manageable. Most shampoos contain sulfates that can strip the moisture out of your hair and make it look dull and lifeless. By using our natural soap bars and olive oil in the place of your regular commercial conditioners, you can moisturize the hair and give it a more healthy sheen.
Once again, olive oil does more than make appetizing dishes. When added as part of your regular beauty treatments, it can greatly improve the health of your hair and skin. Combined with a nutritious diet, the olive oil's antioxidant properties can have a favorable impact on your cholesterol levels and heart health, too. It is the very reason why we use olive oil as a base in our soaps, facial skincare, eczema skincare and massage & body oils.
