Top Five Benefits Of Olive Oil For Skin

Olive oil is nutrient-packed oil made from pressing olives and then expressing their oil.  

It is rich in healthy vitamins, fats, and antioxidants and these components can contribute to healthier-skin of all types.

Have you ever used olive oil for skin? Let’s read on with us to know more about the benefits of olive oil.

1- Moisturizer for dry skin:

This oil can be used as part of a daily skincare regimen when your skin becomes dry. Apply a thin layer to moisturize your face after cleansing. It helps to lock moisture in, so use it after putting on lotion and before makeup. If you apply a daily sunscreen every morning, gently apply a thin layer of olive oil right before the sunscreen and dab away any excess. 

2- Makeup remover:

It can also be used to help wash off stubborn makeup at the end of the day. If you’ve ever had to chisel off waterproof mascara, you know how harsh makeup remover can be on your skin. This oil naturally lifts the makeup off of your skin, making your regular cleanser much more effective.

3- It used as treatment for wrinkles:

Due to its antioxidant content, it may reduce aging skin and wrinkles. The oil can be dabbed around the eye area at night and by applying it daily on your skin, it will help in locking the moisturizer and make your skin wrinkles free.

4- Acne treatment:

If you are prone to acne, using a soap made with olive oil may help decrease your acne by killing off bacteria that causes acne as it has the ability to fight against bacteria.

5- Reducing hyperpigmentation:

The vitamins and other antioxidants in oil may fade scars by helping skin cells to regenerate.

Simply massage the undiluted oil into scars or mix it with a squeeze of lemon juice to treat areas of hyperpigmentation.

Enjoy a healthy life and fresh skin!
