olive oil beauty tips

Olive oil can be used for one of the following natural beauty tips:

1. Moisturizer

Olive oil works great as a moisturizer if you have a few extra minutes to let it absorb into your skin, as it won’t absorb as quickly as other moisturizers. It is especially good if you on elbows, knees, and ankles that are prone to dryness.

2. Shaving

Shaving with olive oil is a little different than shaving with creams or gels. Your razor won’t glide as smoothly, so if you are prone to irritation, this may not be ideal for you. But if you are in a pinch or in a hurry, shaving with olive oil will act as your moisturizer as well.

3. Scalp and Hair Mask

If your scalp is feeling dry or you just want to give your hair a little TLC, you can use warm olive as a scalp and hair treatment. The best way to warm your oil is by placing it in plastic container and letting it sit in hot water until its warm, make sure you don’t let water in. Apply it generously to your scalp and hair and let it sit for a minimum of 15-20 minutes. If you have longer, leave it in longer. I like to put it in my hair at night and put on a shower cap over it and wash it out in the morning.

4. Cuticle Softener

Dab olive oil onto your  it cuticles and rub it in for soft cuticles before pushing them back.

5. Makeup Remover

A small amount of olive oil on a cotton ball can be used as a makeup remover.  Remove the  mascara from under your eyes after you have washed your face.

6. Lip Moisturizer

Use olive oil as a super simple and natural lip moisturizer.

7. Massage

If you are a masseuse, then you can use olive oil to massage with.

8.  Furniture Oil

Combine olive oil and coconut oil and add some essential oils to make a wonderful furniture oil.  It’s pretty cost effective too.

9.  Preserve your herbs

If you have herbs in the garden which are going to seed or chillies which are almost past their time, add them to a glass bottle and add olive oil.  They make great gifts too.

Change your lifestyle to a healthy one by using products which come from nature.  It’s kind to you, and kind to the earth.
