Olive Oil Body MoisturizerI would like to share with you my latest body moisturising treatment.
Olive Oil, I cook with extra virgin olive oil so I always have it in my kitchen.
One day I didn’t have any moisturizer at home so I decide to use olive oil.
I’ve been using it for the last 3 months and I have noticed a great difference on my skin.
Olive Oil contains antioxidants Vitamin A and E.Vitamin E fights free radicals, photo aging and damage to maintain younger looking skin (Leslie Baumann and published in a 2007 issue of "The Journal of Pathology").
So here’s what I do
I mix extra virgin olive oil with a
few drops of essential oils - I love lavender it has such a soothing effect,
helps me have a good night’s sleep. Sometimes I mix it with lime or lemon essential
oils for a refreshing effect (I've read that it is better to avoid citrus type of essentials oils during summer/sun).
I use a small amount on damp skin and massage my body with it. Exactly the same way you use baby oil.
It’s such a great treat for my body. My body is smooth and smells amazing. I’ve never felt better.
I've read so many things about extra virgin olive oil and I'm thinking of using it as a face moisturizer, I'm going to try it for a week and see the results.
There is a saying 'If you can't eat it don't put it on your face/body' .
It makes sense if you think that everything we put on our skin is readily absorbed right into our bloodstream. So perhaps it is time to start thinking what we put on our skin.
I hope you enjoy this nourishing treatment as much as I do.
