You don’t have to worry if you have sensitive skin, as it soothes the skin and prevents skin ageing and wrinkles. Awesome right? Just like coconut oil , it is a must have oil if you want perfect skin, nails and hair.
Here are 7 ways you can use Olive oil in your beauty routine.
1. Olive oil bath
Make your baths extra effective by adding 5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into your bath water. This will make your skin extra supple, soft and smooth.
2. Makeup remover
Olive oil is the perfect natural makeup remover, as it wipes away all the residue and clears your pores. All you need to do is apply a little bit of olive oil on a piece of cotton wool and gently wipe away all the makeup from your face. If you have heavy makeup on, massage olive oil all over your face first, and then wipe it off with a wet cloth. Olive oil is also great for removing eye makeup, it will easily wipe away waterproof makeup.
3. Cracked heel repair
Having cracked heels can make you feel very self-conscious about your feet, but Olive oil will have your feet looking brand new. All you need to do is exfoliate your feet with a pumice stone then apply olive oil afterwards. Make sure you wear some socks to lock in the hydration and help the moisture heal your feet.
4. Healthy nails and softer hands
Regularly apply olive oil to your hands and nails for soft hands and longer, stronger nails.
5. Stretch Marks
Olive oil can help you get rid of those annoying stretch marks, and increase skin elasticity. Rub olive oil over the affected areas at least thrice a week to get rid of existing stretch marks and prevent the formation of new ones.
6. Lip scrub
Want those kissable lips? Get you some olive oil lip scrub. Mix granulated sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil for perfect smooth lips.You can use this scrub for your whole body if you so desire.
7. Dandruff treatment
If you can’t seem to find a way to get rid of dandruff that just keeps plaguing your beautiful hair, Olive oil is the miracle that you have been searching for. Mix olive oil with other oils e.g coconut oil and rosemary and let it sit for a few hours (or overnight) with a bathing cap. Repeat until your hair is dandruff free.
