Protect yourself from the sun… with Olive Oil!

The line between getting a lovely tan and a dangerous burn is much finer than people believe. Sunbathing is one of summer’s pleasures. Getting yourself sunburnt, however, is senseless. Just like how a croissant is much more delicious when it is golden in colour, not burnt, the same is true for your skin. To enjoy the sun’s rays in a healthy way, you just have to follow our four recommendations.

Protect yourself from the sun… with Olive Oil!

1. EXFOLIATE

Start with a body scrub so that your skin can really absorb your sunscreen. Put 4 tablespoons of Olive Oil from Spain, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a bowl and mix it all together until the edges of the grains have become rounded, not sharp. Massage the lotion all over your body using circular movements and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Your skin will be soft and smooth, without having to go anywhere near a spa.

2. MOISTURIZE

Since you’ll need extra hydration after sunbathing, add a few drops of Olive Oil from Spain to your face and body moisturisers. In just a few days, you’ll notice the elasticity it gives to your skin.

3. NOURISH YOUR HAIR

Make a mask made of Olive Oil from Spain and egg yolk to moisten your hair naturally and condition those dry ends. Your hair will be healthy and so shiny, you’ll be the envy of the entire beach. Yes… the Earth continues to have just one sun. That other thing shining so much is just your hair.

4. SPEED UP AND EXTEND YOUR TAN

One natural way to speed up and extend your tan is by eating healthily. In short, add foods that contain or restore melanin ― such as carrots, papaya, oranges, tomatoes, eggs, strawberries, tuna and, of course, a bit of Olive Oil from Spain ― to all your dishes. It’s good for your stomach and for your skin.
