When you think of olive oil, perhaps the first things that comes to your mind is cooking. However, olive oil has come a long way in recent years and is known for a lot more than a healthy diet - but also for skin and hair.
The entire Olivella skin care line was developed around one main ingredient: Ultra Purified Virgin Olive Oil, and they're sharing with us all the secret benefits of using olive oil products for your skin.
1. It's rich in vitamins
Olives are high in vitamins D, A, K, and E - aiding in the reduction of oxidative stress on the skin, which leads to skin ageing. Vitamin E-rich oils have long been used to treat skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema.
2. It works as an antioxidant
Virgin olive oil protects your skin cells from environmental damages such as wind, pollutants, and harmful sun rays. This is due to its high content in polyphenols, which have antioxidant and anti-aging properties and help prevent premature aging cells.
3. It's a great skin moisturizer
Virgin olive oil has outstanding moisturizing and nourishing properties to hydrate the skin of both the face and body. Its high vitamin content makes it a fantastic product to protect and nourish even the most sensitive skin - particularly in the wintertime.
