18 Surprising Benefits of Olive oil for Skin Care - 2

10. Removes makeup

Olive oil is mild and does not sting when used around the eye area, unlike harsh cosmetic makeup removers. 

It is a good option for people with sensitive skin. To deal with the oily residue after applying olive oil, you can wash your face with a suitable face wash after removing makeup. This process will make sure that no residues of make up remain on the skin.

11. home-made makeup cleanser

You can make a home-made makeup remover or makeup cleanser using olive oil and castor oil. Depending on the type of skin you have, you can decide the quantity of olive oil and castor oil required. If your skin is dry, take more olive oil than castor oil. However, if your skin is oily, take more castor oil and less olive oil.

12. Prevents premature ageing

Certain antioxidants present in olive oil, namely hydroxytyrosol and vitamin E forestall premature ageing since they prevent cell degeneration in the skin. Squalene, a substance present in olive oil, maintains the elasticity of the skin. Thus, the skin does not sag and develops a youthful glow, along with firmness.

13. Treat dry and scaly skin

A remedy that can be easily made at home in order to treat dry and scaly skin involves the use of olive oil. Make a mixture of olive oil and sea salt. Use this granular mixture on the affected area to remove dead skin cells and expose the healthy skin underneath. In your bath, add a few drops of lavender essential oil and a few tablespoons of olive oil. This home remedy is simple but luxurious and helps you relax while moisturizing and soothing your entire body.

14. Ideal sunscreen

Did you know that olive oil is a very good sunscreen as well? Make a mixture of olive oil and tea decoction, taken in equal proportions, and apply this mixture to your body and face. The tea decoction can be obtained by boiling tea in water and straining the liquid. Leave the mixture on your skin for 1 hour. After that, rinse the mixture off your skin but do not wash because it leaves a residue. This residue will act as a natural sunscreen.

15. Hydrated and glowing skin

In order to get a natural glow, your blood circulation should be good. By massaging your skin every week with olive oil, the blood circulation will be enhanced and your skin will look hydrated and youthful. Olive oil can also be used as a carrier for essential oils. Heat a mixture of olive oil and your preferred essential oil for a few seconds. Make sure that the olive oil does not get burnt.

If you want to get rid of the problem of chapped lips, switch to olive oil instead of using your regular lip balm. Cooking in olive oil will help you gradually lose weight. You can get rid of cellulite by mixing olive oil with used coffee ground and massaging it on the affected area.

18. Loss of eyelashes

People with sensitive eyes face the problem of itchy eyes after the application of mascara. However, this does not mean that they cannot apply mascara. You can apply olive oil on your eyelashes using an old mascara brush. This will ensure that your eyelashes are shiny and long and you will not suffer from eye allergies or loss of lashes.
