6 Uses of Olive Oil for Beauty Care

Wondering how you can use this oil to make yourself look beautiful? Here are a few amazing beauty uses of using olive oil:

1. Eye-Makeup Remover

You might think that applying olive oil will only add more oil to your face but in fact, this is completely untrue. Olive oil tends to ensure that your skin pores don’t get clogged and cleanses your face by removing the oil that is already present on your face. This is why it makes a great makeup remover and since it is gentle, you don’t have to worry about it hurting your eye area too. Just wash your face after cleansing with a warm water and pH-balanced face wash.

2. Shaving Cream

A lot of us need to shave our legs or arms on a short notice and we often don’t stock up on a shaving cream to help us with the process. However, there is no need to worry because you can use olive oil as your shaving cream and protect yourself from razor burns and bumps. After you are done with shaving, you can lather a little more oil to keep your legs smooth and moisturized.

3. Cuticle Conditioner

Do you want to grow longer nails? Stronger nails? Then a great way to do this is by using a little olive oil as your cuticle softener and apply it on your hands whenever you can. You can apply this oil during cooking or after washing your hands so that your nails remain soft and strong.

4. Pre-shampoo Haircare

One of the most common uses of an olive oil is in hair care as it is known to be quickly absorbed by the hair follicles and helps in proper hair growth. This oil can be used to make your hair look shiny and strong and using it is quite simple too. Just warm your olive oil on a stove or in a microwave in hot water and then apply it thoroughly into your hair and scalp.

Once that is done, leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then shampoo it out. Your hair will feel soft and shiny and will stay moisturized for a long time.

5. Scrubbing lips

Do you have chapped lips? Then you can use olive oil to make your lips smooth and moisturized again. Just take coarse sugar and add a few drops of olive oil to it and add a little lemon juice to it. Apply this scrub on your lips and you will get the soft lips that you always wanted.

6. Moisturizing dry skin

Since olive oil is easily absorbed by the skin and has great moisturizing properties, it is a great way to keep your dry skin hydrated. Just apply the oil to your dry skin area and you will find your skin smooth and soft again.
