We all like to take care of ourselves. We want to feel and look good and, most importantly, we all want smooth, soft skin. Genetics and diet have a big influence on the skin’s ageing process, but there are also external factors that can help you to minimise the signs of ageing. Do you think you know them all? Well make a note of the following tip, because it may surprise you: make your skin soft, smooth, firm and radiant with Olive Oil.
Yes, you read it right. Today, we’re proposing three body treatments based on Olive Oil. Because apart from being in our kitchens, where we benefit from its numerous nourishing and antioxidant properties, Olive Oils can also be used for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. From moisturising masks for the face, body and hair to creams for soothing skin outbreaks or heal babies’ rashes after colic attacks.
Thanks to its moisturising, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, the use of Olive Oils in cosmetic treatments is becoming more and more widespread. The reason for this is very simple: if its components are good for your insides, why on earth wouldn’t they be good for the outside too? Don’t forget that Olive Oil protects your skin, relieves inflammation and provides flexibility, vitality and moisture. The end result: smooth, even, blemish-free skin. You’ll feel better than ever and as though you've been reborn!
