Whether it is for salads or sautéing your favourite vegetables, women will more often than not have a bottle of olive oil nestled safely on their kitchen shelves. The benefits for the body are far too many, which is why it is considered to be the healthiest oil on earth. But the benefits of this oil are not limited to health, as those with good skincare habits will tell you.
However, it is important to know how to use olive for face, hair and body differently. As every skin and hair type is different and when not combined with the right ingredients, it can clog your pores and also cause breakouts.
1. How to use olive oil for the face?
Dry skin needs to be moisturised regularly so it stays nourished for a longer time. It is an excellent ingredient for those with dry skin as it heals dry, cracked and flaky skin. However, instead of applying olive oil on the face directly, try this DIY recipe that will give you benefits that are not limited to moisturising.
You will need:
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 teaspoons of milk
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and apply evenly all over the face. Let it stay for 15-20 minutes before washing with lukewarm water. Repeat thrice a week for best results.
