All members of my family use olive oil for their skin. Not only that we have been using olive oil long since ago, (actually I don’t know the exact time) —but I heard from my mom.
She says no oil is as pretty for skin as olive oil. It is beneficial from baby to adults. My elder sister has two daughters. I saw she used to massage their whole body with olive oil before shower, especially in winter. My sister says that massaging body with olive oil strengthens the skin tissue and its moisture retains longer hours even after shower.
But, to get real benefits from olive oil, you need to collect extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is generally raw, cold-pressed, unrefined, and first-processed immediately after harvesting.
No other elements are also added to or taken out from extra virgin olive oils. That’s why; extra virgin olive oil retains so original olive flavor & taste, lower oleic acid than normal olive oil, natural vitamins and minerals.
There are also lots of benefits of using extra virgin olive oil to massage the body or skin –
- It moisturizes dry skin.
- It invigorates the tonicity of the skin.
- It can get rid of suntan and makeup residues.
- It kills bacteria, thus prevents acne.
- Its various vitamins like Vita A protects radiations.
- It heals damaged skin tissues.
- Its antioxidants fight wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
- It hydrates and protects even the sensitive skin.
The best extra virgin olive oil for body massaging, skin, hair, and cooking purposes
You can use olive oils in various ways for skin as your DIY face packs, lip moisturizer, lip scrubs, face scrub, face mask, face moisturizer, body lotion, or natural makeup remover. Olive oil can remove stubborn mascara that adheres to lashes when other removers fail. In winter I use olive oil to soften my lips in making DIY lip scrub with brown sugar. You can try.
