Olive oil as we all know has a chock-full of health benefits because, it contains healing properties like monounsaturated fat, Oleic acid, antioxidant polyphenols and so on that makes it the healthiest oil of all times. It is utilized as cooking oil, pharmaceutical supplements, medicinal ingredient and so on.

However, Olive oil skin care is also a great source of nutrition when it comes to skin and hair apart from being a staple in the kitchen. 

Skin care

According to a study, Olive oil was applied to the skin of mice which were exposed to the harmful ultraviolet rays that have the potential of causing cancer. It was found later on that Olive oil actually helped in fighting the cells that cause cancer. The tumor rates in mice also decreased after the application of Olive oil to their skin.

Olive oil is enriched with vitamins such as E, A, D and K, that is required for a healthier skin. It is suggested for people who have skin that is prone to acne and pimples to use soaps and other skin products that are enriched with Olive oil because it kills off the bacteria which can cause mentioned diseases. Using Olive oil for face regularly can work out the conditions of extreme dryness and roughness. It helps in hydrating the face and make it look younger.

There are, however many products that contain Olive oil in them but, applying it directly to the skin is what does the trick. Direct application means there are no chances of other ingredients (that may not be suitable for your skin) getting compiled with it. Extra-virgin is the best Olive oil for skin and is recommended for daily use.

Using the oil as an overnight moisturizer can also help in getting a fresher skin in the morning. It can also be applied to the skin that has been exposed to sun for a long time as a replacement of after-sun lotions.  

Hair Care

It is known to all of us that Olive oil has great moisturizing properties that can help in bringing life back to hair. It is, however, used conventionally as a great ingredient in the kitchen but you can always keep a spray bottle of Olive oil in your bathroom for using it either as a conditioner or as a moisturizer.  

People suffering from unyielding hair problems such as dandruff, split ends, roughness, frizz etc. can include Olive oil in their regular hair care routine in order to get rid of them. Using olive hair oil also helps in removing or reducing the glut of Sebum (affects the growth of hair and new hair follicles). Hence, people struggling for longer hair must start with the practice soon.

Making homemade hair masks with the liquid gold is the best way to get instant results. All you need to do is take three tablespoons of Olive oil, one egg, one tablespoon of honey and one ripe banana. Mix all the ingredients well, apply it all over your scalp and hair, rinse with shampoo and conditioner after 15 minutes of application and see a visible difference.

Apart from its magical effects on skin and hair, Olive oil can be a great source of nutrition for the entire body. To sum up, it is the ultimate boon to the mankind that has been of a huge relief from various health issues.
