Using natural olive oil for skin care is nothing new, it has been used widely for a long time and has great effects. However, not everyone knows the how to do it properly. Today, we are going to share some common uses of natural olive oil.
Natural Olive Oil Skin Care – 10 Simple Beauty Tips with Olive Oil
Use Natural Olive Oil to Soften Your Hands
Olive oil is very likely the most convenient oil for softening your hands. Simply lather some on in the middle of cooking or mix your olive oil into your salad with your hands. This process guarantees at least one hand treatment every couple of days.
Use Natural Olive Oil to Cure and Prevent Hang Nails
Olive is excellent for treating and preventing hang nails. A while back I read an article in Woman’s World Magazine about how Ashly Covington (one of the most famous hand models in the world) uses Olive Oil to prevent hang nails and to make sure her cuticles and hands are super soft. Her simple secret is slathering her hands in olive oil several times a day while paying special attention to the area around her nails. She says she takes a bottle with her everywhere she goes and on occasion will wear lightweight cotton gloves (never rubber as this does not let the skin breathe) to keep her hands extra safe and to improve absorption. If you want, mix it with a little sandalwood for even more umph.
Use Natural Olive Oil to Strengthen Your Nails
While following the two techniques above, you’ll also be working to strengthen your nails. It’s an excellent and unexpected benefit of using olive for skin care on your hands and the skin around your nails.
Use Natural Olive Oil For Dry Skin
One of the most profound benefits of olive oil for skin care is how quickly and easily it softens dry skin. A simple way to use it is to simply to rub it on your body after your shower. It’s stays greasy and takes a little while to be absorbed so make sure you give yourself time before getting dressed. You can speed up the absorption by adding a little aloe vera. This improves the absorption of any oil into your skin. It will also take the oil a little bit deeper than it would go on its own. Part of why it’s so powerful is because it’s a humectant and actually draws moisture into your skin.
Soothe Itchy Skin With Natural Olive Oil
Every winter, in about February, you rub it all over my body when you have super dry, itchy skin. After you’ve used it every day for about a week my skin is soft and smooth again. If you used it a 2-3 times a week, you won’t run into this problem again. You simply lather it on after a shower. Adding a few drops of essential oil is extremely helpful, especially if your skin is itchy too.
Create Soft Shiny Hair with Natural Olive Oil
Create an at-home hot oil treatment with olive oil to create soft, shiny hair. You can use it on it’s own or include an essential oil appropriate to your hair type to make the treatment even more effective. Let the oil heat on the stove or in the microwave for 10-15 seconds then add it to your hair and let it site (covered) for a minimum of 30 minutes. Some people will use a blow dryer for an extra-intense hot oil treatment.
