    Default 6 Surprising Beauty Benefits of Olive Oil

    Popularly known as ‘Liquid gold’, olive oil has numerous benefits. Whether it is skin care, hair care or the health of your nails, olive oil is like an elixir which can just make everything right. Let’s have a look at some of the most surprising beauty benefits of olive oil.


    Skin moisturiser

    If you have dry skin, then olive oil is perfect for you. It penetrates deep into the skin and nourishes it. Olive oil was also used for bathing when soaps did not exist. Soaps which contain olive oil has lesser ph levels as compared to others and is good for your skin’s health.

    Quick fact: The chemical structure of the naturally occurring oil in our body is very similar to olive oil, and that is why it is a major component of many beauty products.

    Our secret recipe: Water and olive oil when mixed in equal parts are great for treating sun burns.


    Exfoliate at home

    If you are low on budget and cannot afford that expensive spa treatment this month, then exfoliate your skin at home. Mix olive oil with a teaspoon of sugar and apply this mixture on your skin. Massage gently and revel in the glow!

    Quick fact: Olive oil contains squalene which improves the elasticity of your skin.

    Our secret recipe: If you have dry skin, then you must mix olive oil with sea salt to cleanse it. All your dead skin will peel off, leaving behind a healthy glow.


    Nail care

    Professionals swear by this tip. Rub a little olive oil after the nail polish has dried off to make your nails shine. Olive oil also soothes dry skin and the cuticles around your nail bed.

    Quick fact: Olive oil contains chlorophyll which helps in healing skin conditions and wounds.

    Our secret recipe: If you have brittle nails then soak them for about 15 minutes in a bowlful of olive oil, a few drops of lemon and some essential oils every week.


    Hair care

    Olive oil is the answer to every woman’s prayer seeing it gives your hair a wonderful lustre. If you have dry hair, then you must use a mixture of egg yolk and olive oil to deep condition them.

    Quick fact: Olive oil contains hydroxytyrosol which has anti-ageing properties.

    Our secret recipe: Add a tablespoon of olive oil to your regular conditioner and use it after shampooing.


    Eye makeup remover

    Your eyes are very sensitive and that is why you must be very careful while removing eye makeup. Instead of using chemicals, opt for olive oil. Not only will your make up come off easily, but the skin around your eye will be nourished too.

    Quick fact: Polyphenols which are abundant in olive oil have anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties which soothes your skin.

    Our secret recipe: Olive oil can be used as a replacement for mascara to darken your eye lashes and eyebrows.


    Nourish your lips

    If you want to get rid of chapped and dry lips naturally, then simply dab some olive oil on them. Olive oil can also act as a lips exfoliator.

    Quick fact: Olive contains Vitamin E which will protect your lips and skin from the UV rays.

    Our secret recipe: To exfoliate your lips, just mix some olive oil with sugar and apply it on your lips. The sugar particles will get rid of any dry skin whereas olive oil will nourish your lips.


    What to look for while buying olive oil

    When it comes to beauty benefits, virgin olive oil or extra virgin oil have very few differences. But whether the oil is cold pressed or not is an important factor. Cold pressed olive oil retains its most important nutrients and vitamins and hence this oil is more beneficial in the long run.
