7 Beauty Uses For Extra Virgin Olive Oil

by

I fell in love with extra virgin olive oil- All over again !

I go through gallons of it in my kitchen and just a few weeks ago i fell head over heels for a blood orange infused olive oil from Gourmet -Delights. It is made by crushing together fresh organic Moro blood oranges with tree-ripened California olives.
Since then I’ve been using it not only on my daily salad but also as my favorite beauty product.

For my daily use I stick to the Gourmet Delights brand of extra virgin olive oil, it is a little fruity, full bodied and with a very pure taste.
Now for the best part: both of these top quality extra virgin olive oils are under $20. Thank you Gourmet-Delights !

Do you still wonder why you should use extra virgin olive oil ? Because it is unrefined, cold pressed from the first pressing of the olives.  By not using heat it conserves all the nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins, something that can’t be said about any refined oil including plain olive oil.

Here are my Top 7 beauty uses for extra virgin olive oil:

7 Beauty Uses For Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1.  Eating. Olive oil is one of the 3 foods permitted by the FDA to contain a health claim benefit on its label. Drizzle it over salads, grilled vegetable, meats and bruschetta to improve your health and have radiant skin.

2.  Shaving. Use olive oil instead of shaving cream for an extra smooth and silky finish. However your shower could become quite slippery so be careful getting in and out.

3.  Dry Scalp Relief. Condition your scalp with warm olive oil & massage it in as a relief for dry scalp. Leave it on for 20 minutes then wash your hair as usual.

4.  Make Up Remover and Face Moisturizer. Use olive oil filled with Vitamin E and antioxidants instead of your regular makeup remover and moisturizer to hydrate and renew, smooth and heal the skin, especially acne scars .

5.  Cuticle Oil. Use it to help moisturize, repair and protect the cuticle against damage.

6.  Soothing Oil. Apply to rashes for soothing, like diaper rash and sun burn.

7.  Anti Frizz. Apply a couple of drops in the palm of your hand, rub gently and run your fingers through frizzy hair to tame it, add shine and condition.
