So, working as the Cosmetic’s Captain at Target, I always see women, every single day, spending money on products that could so easily be done by olive oil:( Olive oil is a beauty secret gem. It doesn’t clog pores, moisturizes the skin, and can you really get any more natural than using a product with one ingredient?
According to this website,
Olive oil is:
- Packed with anti-aging polyphenols
- Delays formation of wrinkles
- Softens and smooths rough skin
- Creates a lustrous, dewy complexion
- Reduces sun damage
- Provides natural protection from skin cancer
- Absorbs easily
Now that you know, here are some…
Products You Can Get Rid of and Replace with Olive Oil
Just slather olive oil all over your legs and shave as usual. It will leave your legs silky, smooth and already moisturized. No need for after shower lotion. I recommend wiping your shaving blades with a paper towel to remove excess olive oil.
I like to put equal parts brown sugar, honey, and olive oil into a glass container and keep it in my shower. Try it. Super luxurious.
Makeup Remover and/or Cleansing Cloths:
After I cleanse my face, and before I even wipe the moisture off, I fill a dropper full of olive oil (see picture above: I keep a dropper by my sink filled with olive oil) and put it in my palm. I massage it all over my face, then wipe it off with a paper towel.
Eye Makeup Remover:
After I take the makeup off my face, any remaining eye makeup around my eyes also gets removed by olive oil. I insert a q-tip into the olive oil dropper and use the olive oil drenched q-tip to remove eye makeup.
Try it out; you will love it! (and so will your wallet)
