8 Amazing Olive Oil Beauty Hacks
While I always purchase extra virgin olive oil to use when cooking or consuming, it’s not as important to purchase extra virgin olive oil when using it in a beauty product. You can save a few dollars and purchase regular olive oil instead.
- DIY Coffee Scrub – Mix ground coffee and olive oil and massage onto stretch marks or any rough patches of dry skin. Rinse off.
- Lip Exfoliator – Mix olive oil, brown sugar, and honey into a paste and massage gently onto your lips. Rinse off.
- Cleansing oil – Oil attracts oil. Simply massage olive oil onto your face and rinse off. It will draw out the impurities.
- Hair conditioner – Heat half a cup of olive oil to warm in a pan and massage into your hair. Wrap your hair in a towel and leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse.
- Shaving – No need for conditioner. Simply rub olive oil into your skin and shave. It will reduce irritation and leave your legs soft and smooth.
- Makeup removal – Wet a cotton ball and use olive oil to remove your eye makeup. Follow up by washing your skin normally.
- Condition your cuticles – Simply place olive oil in a small bowl and soak your cuticles for 2 or 3 minutes.
- Treat cracked heels – Exfoliate your dry cracked heels and follow up by rubbing olive oil into your skin.
