You’re undoubtedly familiar with olive oil as the lovely, aromatic light green oil used in pasta preparations. But did you know it’s also a great ingredient in a lot of skincare products? Some of them you can even make at home.
Face wash products frequently use olive oil as a component. Olive oil is used as a basis in several cosmetics. Some soaps, body washes, and lotions include it as well. By using olive oil directly to your skin, you may use it as a moisturizer without any additional additives.
If you make your own cleanser, makeup remover, or moisturizer, you can be sure it won’t include any noxious chemicals. Furthermore, your product will be free of animal testing (unlike many beauty products lining drugstore shelves).
Here are some of the skincare products made of olive oil that you can easily find or make yourself because they’re all produced with organic or extra-virgin olive oil:
Olive oil soap
Some will call it «smooth and creamy,» but the majority will call it «slimy.» Try it at least once, but keep in mind that the lather will be different from what you’re used to.
Castile soap takes a long time to cure; instead of three or four weeks, many people wait six to nine months or more before using it. A 9-month-old Castile soap has a significantly finer lather than one that is only a few weeks old.
Olive oil face cream
Olive oil has been used for beauty treatments for a long time. It’s not so much a moisturizer as it is a barrier that keeps the moisture locked in as we get our beauty rest. It’s also high in antioxidants, which help to prevent premature aging.
Forget about the latest drugstore makeup remover, which may contain chemicals, fake smells, and who knows what else. Right now, you most likely have a natural makeup remover in your kitchen! The usage of olive oil as a makeup remover is simple. For a natural makeup remover method, dab some oil on a cotton ball or pad and swipe around your face to remove makeup.
Olive oil body scrub
You can quickly exfoliate your skin using items you already have in your pantry. Simply combine olive oil with sugar (for dry or sensitive skin) or salt (for oily skin) to produce a paste-like consistency, then add any essential oils (if desired) and you’re ready to go! Simple, inexpensive, and all-natural!
Enjoy these olive oil products in your beauty routine!
