Olive oil is a good source of monounsaturated fat that is good for the heart. It is widely used in salad dressings and cooking. On the other hand, it is also the main ingredient in many beauty products. Here are some olive oil beauty tips from top to toe.
Hair and scalp:
Olive oil is a great choice for dry and damaged hair.It helps to condition hair and get rid of the frizz. It helps repair split ends and makes your hair soft and shiny. Put a small drop into your palm and massage onto scalp and hair. Cover hair with a plastic bathing cap and leave on for 30 minutes or more then shampoo as usual. Use this treatment 2 -3 times a month for healthy and shiny hair.
If your skin seems extra dry, simply massage a small amount of olive oil into your face and neck, using the same circular motions.
Olive oil makes a great eye makeup remover. Just pour a small amount on a cotton ball and wipe off stubborn eye makeup and mascara, just be careful to avoid getting into the eyes.
Dab a little olive oil on lips to soothe dry, chapped lips.
Massage a small amount of olive oil into skin whenever you need softening and moisturizing. Apply extra oil to rough or cracked areas like elbows, knees and cracked heels.
