Olive Oil & It's Benefit..

I'm sure most of you out there would have heard about Olive oil and it's benefit. Olive oil is overall the type of oil which can really benefit you from various way and that's the reason most of us do include Olive oil in our daily cooking routine as well. I'm not going to talk anything about cooking over here, as that's a part only my mum is good at but what I would like to share here is about the benefit of Olive Oil to our skin.

I've read about it the magazines and I've also googled about it online before and I realise that it really does do good to your skin and that's also a reason why those skincare lines out there produces their products with Olive Oil included.

Olive oil helps to promote a smooth and radiant complexion, helps to maintain the elasticity of the skin, heals brittle & dry nails as well as soften cuticles and lastly conditions and adds shin to skin. I've managed to extract the details on how you can add them in your daily routine as below:

Bath:
Simply add about ¼ cup olive oil and several drops of essential oil (Lavender is good to relieve stress) to your bathwater.

Dry Skin:
Gently massage a small amount of olive oil on extra dry areas such as your elbows or heels.

Face:
You can simply create a home made facial mask with olive oil, honey, and an egg yolk. Beat all those items and apply to face. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with water.

Hair:
For a simple oil treatment, warm several tablespoons of olive oil (again, not hot). Rub into scalp and hair. Cover with a shower cap or small plastic bag. Leave on for 20-30 minutes.

Try it when you're free and am sure you'll realise the benefits of Olive Oil.
