Olive Oil as Part Of Beauty Routine
June 3, 2013
Olive oil an essential ingredient in a healthy diet. But did you know it can be used for your hair and skin?
Olive oil is a great hair conditioner. It can be used like CHI or Moroccan oil and it can help to condition dry or frizzy hair. All you have to do is apply it to shampooed hair in place of your regular conditioner. Wrap your head in a warm towel and sit for a half hour. Just do it while you’re watching your favorite TV show. It can even help with split ends!
Olive oil can also be used to moisturize your skin. Add a few drops to your bath to soften your skin. You don’t even have to use your regular moisturizer after the bath! You can also apply it to your dry heels and wear socks overnight to soften up that cracked skin!
You can also use it to take off make up. This one not only removes the makeup, but moisturizes your skin at the same time. Who knows what goes into the cold creams we’re so used to applying? Just dip a cotton ball in some olive oil and apply as you would a cold cream. It’ll come right off! Plus, olive oil has been shown to battle the effects of aging on the skin; talk about a skin multi-tasker!
Those are three really surprising uses for olive oil; it truly can go from dinner ingredient to part of a beauty routine.
