4 Tips For Keeping Your Face Healthy with Olive Oil

You don’t have to splurge on expensive makeup products.  Discover some healthy olive oil options.

                                                 Healthy Olive Oil for Beauty  

With so many beauty products on the market you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing your face. Some of them though are way too expensive and often contain harmful chemicals and preservatives.
If keeping healthy is one of your New Year’s resolutions, don’t ignore your face. Include natural doable olive oil ways to keep your face healthy this year.

  1.    Olive Oil for Removing make up

Taking off makeup is less fun than putting it on. If you don’t remove all the foundation, mascara, and eyeliner, it’ll clog up your skin causing smudges around your eyes.

Olive oil, similar in structure to the oils used in makeup, removes all makeup without damaging the skin. And, it will even get rid of waterproof mascara.

Simply dab a little olive oil on a cotton ball and apply over your face and eyes. Rub gently until all the makeup is removed. Rinse with lukewarm water to remove any residue.

     2.    Olive Oil for Shadows and Dark Rings

We sometimes refer to these as bags under the eyes; stress, hereditary factors, and lack of sleep can cause these dark circles under your eyes. You’ll come across home remedies such as cucumber and tea bags, but did you know you can use a mixture of olive oil and lemon as well?

Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with the juice of half a lemon. Using a cotton ball, apply on the eyes; press lightly on the dark circles for about five minutes, then rinse. Lemon is known for its skin- lightening properties, while olive oil hydrates the skin.

     3.     Face mask

We know how important it is to cleanse the face every evening; we do it to remove all the grime and dirt from the day as well as makeup. Every so often, though, we need to go deeper to pull out those impurities lurking beneath the top layer of the skin.

Using a face mask once a week will do this. It will also unclog our pores and get rid of any pimples caused by bacteria. This healthy, nutritious homemade mask does not take long to prepare; your skin will feel rejuvenated after the treatment. And you get to relax for fifteen minutes while it does its magic.

Mash half an avocado with some olive oil and make into a paste. Smooth it onto your face and leave for about fifteen minutes or so, then rinse.
     4.     Natural Exfoliant

Our body naturally gets rid of dead skin, but sometimes it hangs on too long, giving us a dull, tired-looking complexion. Exfoliating removes dull, tired, dead cells and rejuvenates the skin. Use this natural scrub twice a week to help keep your complexion clear and healthy.

Make a paste with 2 teaspoons of sea salt and 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
With the tips of your fingers, rub the mixture on your face, neck, and body using circular movements paying special attention to the T zone area of your face

What you must remember though that if you want the best results then use the best olive oil.  Scrutinize the label and make sure you’re buying extra virgin olive oil, the best guarantee that you are getting the real thing.
