We often find ourselves searching for the perfect skin cream and end up spending a fortune on treatments and lotions that promise to give us a healthy, radiant glow. Today we want to tell you all about an all-natural beauty trick that can do just that. It’s good for your skin and your wallet! Do you want to know what it is?
It’s Olive Oil. Yes, Olive Oil, the star ingredient in Mediterranean cooking and in many beauty remedies since ancient times, not only because of its benefits when consumed, but also because of its benefits when applied to the skin, hair and nails.
Nowadays, one group of women who are well aware of its properties are celebrities. For example, if we had to highlight one quality of model Miranda Kerr, apart from her penetrating stare, it would be her long, flowing locks that steal the spotlight whenever she attends an event. Want to know how this Victoria’s Secret angel takes care of her hair? At least once a week she adds shine to her hair using an Olive Oil mask and lemon juice, which she leaves on for as long as possible. Miranda says that this trick, which her mother taught her, is the best remedy for split ends.
If you want your mane to shine like Miranda Kerr’s, take a look at our own trick:
- Coat your hands with Olive Oil (preferably Virgin or Extra Virgin) and massage your scalp and hair from the roots to the tips.
- Cover your hair with a towel for one hour.
- When the hour is up, wash your hair and voila! Easy, right?
Another celebrity who knows the power of liquid gold is Emily Blunt, well-known for her role in The Devil Wears Prada. She has said that she uses Olive Oil on her face to keep her skin smooth and hydrated. In fact, moisturising the skin during winter is fundamental for celebrity women. Do you want your own skin to glow like Emily’s? Follow these steps:
- Using circular motions, rub Virgin or Extra Virgin Olive Oil onto your face.
- Place a damp towel in the microwave for a few seconds, then cover your face with it so that your pores open up and the oil can penetrate deep into the skin.
That’s it! As radiant as Emily Blunt!
Do you want your skin and hair to be as beautiful as those of the celebrities that you see on TV? As you can see, it’s not necessary to spend lots of money on cosmetics; products already within your reach like Olive Oil are effective too. Remember, this oil comes from olives, which are the fruit of the olive tree, a natural-born survivor that flourishes in arid ground with few nutrients. What are you waiting for? With Olive Oil, you can have all the strength and benefits of this millennium tree.
