Olive Oil For a Perfect Complexion

Moisturizing your skin is an important part of any skin care regimen. It's not only vital in maintaining a youthful appearance, but it's actually good for your skin and your overall health.

Go back to the basics with olive oil which leaves skin soft and supple. Olive oil has great benefits to the skin. The Ancient Greeks new how that extra virgin olive oil was one of the best beauty secrets.

In addition to being a natural, hypoallergenic way to moisturize skin, extra organic virgin olive oil has the added advantage of providing strong antioxidants, like Vitamins A and E that help repair and renew skin that has been damaged from overexposure to sun, air pollution, and other modern-day environmental hazards. These antioxidants have the natural ability to stimulate cells and return skin to a firmer, smoother, and healthier state.

To provide a slightly more scientific explanation, this damage is related to the destructive activity of oxygen-related free radicals produced by skin cells. Polyphenolic components of olive oil have been compared to traditional antioxidants, such as tocopherols, to prevent skin damage. The rich emollients in olive oil allow just a little to go a long way. Also, olives contain natural Squalene that helps keep our skin soft and healthy.

Whether applied to face or body, olive oil will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin smooth and supple

Many of you love our Olive Nourishing Cream which contains organic olive oil that hydrates, sooths and leaves skin silky smooth. For a deep moisturizing treatment for dry skin I suggest my customers to apply a heavier application of the olive nourishing cream on the skin and leaving it for a minimum of 30 minutes before messaging through.
