It comes to our minds a huge variety of delicious dishes and flavorful recipes when we think of olive oil. Personally I love it! It smells delicious and tastes even better. For centuries it has been part of the Mediterranean diet, thanks to its multiple benefits to our health. But have you ever thought making this delicious oil part of your beauty routines?
As crazy as it may sound this oil contains multiple benefits for our skin too. It’s packed with antioxidants and it can be used as a cleanser and moisturizer. Here are some ways you can incorporate it into your beauty routines.
* As a shaving cream
Yes! Use it instead of your regular shaving cream. It will leave your skin soft and with a healthy natural glow.
* Mix it with your body cream
When our skin needs an extra kick of moisture, instead of applying tons of body cream or layering products add a few drops of olive oil to your regular body cream. Don’t worry about its smell, you’ll hardly notice it.
* Make Up remover
Use a cotton ball or disk with a few drops of oil to remove your make up. It will even get rid of your mascara and raccoon eyes. I recommend using a cotton swab for this area.
* Face mask
Here is a quick and easy face mask that will leave your skin feeling smooth, moisturized and radiant! Just mix two tablespoons of honey with a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply it over your face and let it rest for ten minutes. To remove it, I like rubbing some sugar to lightly exfoliate my face and then rinse all off with warm water.
Don’t be afraid of using olive oil outside the kitchen! Your skin will love it!
