Where do you use olive oil in your life?
Do you use it only for cooking and as a dressing on your favorite salads?
Then like many other people, you are also missing out on the several other benefits this gift from nature has to offer- especially those which can up your beauty game.
Read on to find how olive oil can work wonders for your skin, hair, hands and even nails.
1. For softer skin
Mix two tablespoons of olive oil with three tablespoons of granulated sugar and add in a few drops of lemon or orange juice. Stir to make a thick paste and use it to scrub the back of your hands, feet, heels and even lips. Coarse sugar works to exfoliate and olive oil moisturizes your skin. It will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and your chapped lips will be fixed in no time!
2. For healthy looking hair
Give your hair a salon-like treatment. Heat about five tablespoons of olive oil in a microwave oven or place the bottle under a stream of hot water for one minute. Then massage it onto your scalp and leave for at least thirty minutes before shampooing. You are sure to notice softness and shine from a single use. Repeat this once a week and your hair growth will improve too.
3. For strong and shiny nails
Do you wish for long nails but find them chipping off frequently? And they take ages to grow back? Olive oil can give you the super strong, fast-growing and shiny nails you wish for. Simply, before going to bed, rub some olive oil gently on your cuticles. Repeat this every night to make your nails shine throughout the day.
