Olive Oil: The Only Beauty Oil You Need
By James Lunden
There are very few products you can find that are as diverse or as effective as a simple little bottle of olive oil.
Yes, that's right, olive oil, the same stuff you cook with or sprinkle on your salad. Not only does it have health benefits when it's part of your regular diet, olive oil is one of the greatest and most beneficial beauty products you can find. It's the do-almost-everything bottle.
Olive oil is a natural moisturizer, protectant and skin softener. Known as the golden oil, it literally works from head to toe.
Dull, flat and dried out hair is transformed to shiny, smooth and soft when conditioned with olive oil. A few capfuls in your bath water will leave your entire body richly hydrated as well as supple and soft. No time for a bath? Try some on a body buff while you are in the shower.
Olive oil is an ideal skin conditioner due to its deeply penetrating nature. Dry, chapped hands or feet will be revitalized when masked with the oil and covered in cotton overnight. Plus it's great for your cuticles. Equal parts olive oil and sea salt make a fantastic and natural exfoliant for face, body and even cuticles.
Of-course, it does have some dietary benefits as well! Extra virgin olive oil is commonly used in salad dressings, bread dips and as a standard base for cooking, frying or baking. The wonders of olive oil have made it a household staple for years, and many women swear by eating a spoonful every single day.
So the next time you notice that your cuticles are looking ragged, your hair is looking dull or your feet are feeling rough, look no further than your kitchen cupboard. Reach for that bottle of golden olive oil, it's the only beauty oil you really need.
