BENEFICIAL PROPERTIES OF OLIVE OIL
June 1, 2018
Olive oil is highly appreciated in the kitchen as enrichment of our dishes, but it excels also on the dressing table, as a cosmetic. Used in baths, facials, peelings, or a substitute of cream, it gives unbelievably good results. Rubbing the skin with raw olive oil makes vitamins it contains penetrate into skin, giving it a healthy, radiant look. Vitamin E, a natural oxidant, eliminates wrinkles, refreshes, replenishes lipids and alleviates the skin, constantly exposed to stress and negative weather conditions. Vitamin F rebuilds the lipid coat of the epidermis, creating a natural barrier protecting from dehydration. Therefore, it smoothens the skin and strengthens its natural immunity. In the heating season and for people with dry skin, warm baths with a few spoons of olive oil are recommended in order to replenish skin lipids. A massage with olive oil stimulates blood circulation and accelerates the absorption of beneficial components of the oil, thanks to which the skin becomes smoother and is better nourished.
