Olive oil has been used since ancient times for its many benefits! From glowy skin to healthy hair, olive oil makes for a great natural beauty product!
1. Make-up Brush Cleanser
Olive oil can be used to form a very effective makeup brush cleanser! Simply mix equal amounts of olive oil with Dawn dish soap and let the brushes sit in the mixture for about 10 minutes. This mixture instantly dissolves even the thickest makeup. Rinse with water and you will be left with clean brushes.
2. Shaving Cream
Olive oil makes a great natural shaving cream and will leave your skin feeling smooth! It is also great at preventing razor burn!
3. Frizz Remover/Shine Serum
Apply a few small drops of olive oil to the ends of your hair for a beautiful shine and frizz-free locks!
Dry skin is extremely common. Olive Oil nourishes the skin and is a natural humectant which means it attracts moisture. It is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin E, and vitamin K making it great for dry skin. It is perfect for your legs and arms but be careful applying it to your skin if it is sensitive, as olive oil is moderately comedogenic meaning it can clog pores.
5. Cuticle Softener
Suffer from cracked cuticles and brittle nails? Olive oil can be applied to your cuticles and will help nourish them making your nails grow longer and stronger.
6. Hot- oil hair treatment
If you are trying to grow your hair or just want it to be healthier, olive oil makes for the perfect hot oil treatment! Heat up olive oil and then massage it into your scalp with your head upside down. This is a great way to promote blood flow and will help your hair frow faster. Leave the oil in your hair overnight or for several hours. Be sure to wash your hair with a strong shampoo after as the oil is quite difficult to remove.
