Olive oil for natural cosmetics

The extra virgin olive oil apart from the extraordinary gastronomic properties in any dish of the Mediterranean diet, can be used directly on the skin for different common beauty treatments. Olive oil is a perfect product to remove make-up, applied directly reduces the aging of our skin, moisturizes and gives it a natural and youthful shine.

Let’s look at several uses of olive oil in more detail:

Lip balm

Dry summer air, open windows in the car and other situations can dry your lips, dehydrate them, even crack them and cause small wounds. As a substitute for your usual lip balm, you can use a little extra virgin olive oil. Extend with your own fingertips, or with a little cotton or absorbent paper extra virgin olive oil. Your lips will be protected, hydrated, shiny and youthful.

Insect bites

Wet areas of the garden can be places of abundance of insects and other animals, which at night can sting and cause annoying stings or grains. One way to avoid this discomfort is to apply a few drops of extra virgin olive oil to the affected areas. If the stinging persists, apply a gauze soaked in cold water and place it on the affected area. You will see how the stinging calms down.

Skin care after depilation

Even if you depilate all year round, it is the time of summer when your legs show off the most, and these ugly pimples can appear. Also, the skin can acquire a redder tone, giving an uglier appearance to our legs. If we apply extra virgin olive oil on our legs and other parts of the body, this will moisturize the skin after depilation, and avoid these pimples and unwanted redness. In addition, if you wax with wax, the oil will help you remove the remains of wax that may remain on our skin.

We recommend not to apply olive oil or any other fatty substance on the recently depilated armpits, because it could provoke effects contrary to those desired and be very careful not to support yourself in any clothes and with the slips, because olive oil takes longer to be absorbed by the skin.

Chlorine, salt and sun deteriorate our hair, leaving it very dehydrated, causing it to become tangled, frizz, split ends, and finally killing the funicle and hair.

If we add egg and raw honey to the olive oil, we will get a fantastic and super moisturizing hair mask.
