Have you ever thought about using olive oil for silky smooth skin? Believe me, olive oil is miracle oil. You can use it in your hands instead of hand cream. You can also repair sore cuticles and cracked skin by simply soaking your fingers in olive oil for 15-20 min once a week. This will strengthen your nails and soften your cuticles.
Another way to use olive oil on your hands is to apply the oil to your hands, put on gloves and leave over night. Next day, wash off with soap and warm water and you will be amazed how your skin will be soft and smooth.
Mix coconut oil, dark organic honey and lemon juice in equal measure and keep this mix in the fridge. You can use this homemade facial moisturizer for few days.
For a nice and smooth skin, I recommend a yogurt cucumber mask.
How to do it: Mix 2 tbsp. of full-fat plain yogurt with 1/2 of a pureed cucumber and apply the mixture to your face. Cover your eyes with cucumber slices and relax for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
This mask can be done once a week.
As a moisturiser you can use many types of oil such as olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, macadamia nut oil or grape seed oil. My favourite is almond oil. I like the smell and the texture of it. Almond oil is also great for pregnant women to help avoid stretch marks.
Olive oil can be used for almost everything including for your hair care. Before washing your hair, apply a generous amount of olive oil from the scalp to the ends and wrap your hair with a towel. Leave it for 1 hour or as long you can, than have your shower, wash your hair as usual and you will see your hair shine.
Tip: You can replace the olive oil by using aloe vera. Use the gel inside the plant and apply generously from the scalp to the ends.
I remember when my mum use to apply olive oil or aloe vera on her hair. It really makes a difference.
