Reduce the appearance of Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is packed with antioxidants that can prevent wrinkles and improve the appearance of your skin.  Trade in your chemical-laden make up remover for a cotton ball dabbed in a small amount of olive oil! Eye make-up? Gone!

Soothe Dry skin

Forget expensive lotions; olive oil is great for dry skin. It’s loaded with skin-loving goodness and is a natural humectant, meaning that it will attract moisture to barren, cracked skin. Olive oil has also been known to improve skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis.

Strengthen Nails

Do you suffer from dry and brittle nails? Give yourself an at-home spa nails treatment! Warm some olive oil, dip the tips of your fingers in and relax. Wait five minutes, rub your cuticles and wash your hands. The olive oil will penetrate deep into your skin and strengthen your nails while simultaneously promoting healthy nail growth.

Get hair that shines

Last but not least, let’s get to how olive oil can work wonders on your mane. Massage some olive oil into your scalp and comb it through your hair. Focus on the ends of your hair if it’s really dry or color treated. Leave on for 10 minutes. Have really dry hair? Put on a shower cap and add some heat with a blow dryer. Dandruff sufferers should leave the cap on overnight for a deep condition treatment.
