Beauty :: The Benefits of Olive Oil

Who would of thought olive oil would be used for more than cooking and food? Olive oil is a popular thing used in many beauty regiments. With such a large varity of uses, olive oil is a good addition to your own beauty routines.

Olive oil is a well known substitute for make-up remover. If you ran out of your favourite make-up remover, just head over to the kitchen and use some olive oil. It works like a charm!

Skin feeling a bit dry? Lips are cracking? Use olive oil as a moisturizer. I like to apply a thin layer to my lips when they're chapped and I also use olive oil on my cuticles. It makes your lips super smooth and your cuticles look super healthy if you use it consistently. Elbows are a good area to apply olive oil, especially in the winter when the heat's on high.

Still have dry scally skin? Mix some olive oil with sea salt and use it as an exfoliator on your skin. It'll get rid of all the dead peeling skin and leave your body smooth and moisturized.

Lastly, olive oil can be used for hair treatments. Use it as a conditioner on the ends of your hair, or use it on your scalp to prevent dandruff. Let it sit in your hair for a few minutes than wash it out. Your hair will be shiner and your scalp will be less irritated. Win-win situation!
