Olive Oil for Skincare

September 1, 2021

In recent years, people have been seeking out products containing fewer ingredients than before because some of them might contain chemicals or other things not good for our health like sulfates. If you’re looking for a more natural option, extra virgin olive oil is an all-natural skincare product that’s perfect. For instance, it can help hydrate dry skin by locking moisture in with its fatty acids. It also helps protect against UV rays so wrinkles won’t be such a problem later on down the road. The best part? Olive oil doesn’t leave any residue behind which means no need to rewash after use.

Use it To Moisturize

Olive oil, like many other oils, helps lock in moisture. Unlike most other oils though, when used alone it doesn’t do much for our skin, but applying olive oil on top of your moisturizer will help seal the hydration from that product into your skin and keep you all smooth.

This also helps to prevent or treat scars and stretch marks since the key to preventing these is keeping your skin moisturized. 

Vitamins and Antioxidants

Olive oil is a great way to get your daily dose of Vitamins A, D, E and K. Not only can these vitamins make you healthier overall with improved immune function, but they also help keep your complexion glowing. Olive oil’s high levels of Vitamin A are often used in many skin care products because the vitamin has been shown to improve elasticity and reduce wrinkles over time while Omega-3 fatty acids work wonders on dry or irritated patches as well as other common skin conditions like acne.

Olive oil also contains antioxidants which could possibly prevent the early signs of aging. 

Other ways to incorporate olive oil into your daily beauty routine includes using it as an all natural makeup remover, cuticle treatment, and hair treatment to restore moisture and shine. Make a skin exfoliating scrub by mixing olive oil with sugar.
