Skin care tips with Olive oil


The inexpensive olive oil is healthy and wonderful for cooking and also useful for keeping skin beautiful.

Following are some skincare tips with olive oil-
1. For dry skin make a paste with egg yolk, olive oil and lemon juice. Apply the paste on your face and neck. Rinse well after 10 minutes.

2. Apply a mixture of honey, olive oil, basin and milk. Use the mixture as a face pack.

3. Make facial also with olive oil- First beat an egg yoke with a fork, add olive oil and blend well. Add honey using a teaspoon. Mix them well and smear it all over your face with the help of your fingers, except do not cover your eyes. Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse well.

4. A mixture of ½ cup olive oil, ¼ cup vinegar & ¼ cup water used as night cream is quite helpful for making skin glow. The olive oil softens and moisturizes and the vinegar lightens discolorations, kills bacteria and loosens dead skin cells. Splash water on your face before applying.

5. Use olive oil on your feet with clean white cotton. It makes your feet soften.

6. Use olive oil for your hair. Not only does it condition, but it also gets rid of the frizz. Put a small drop into your palm & then rub both hands together & apply it to dry hair.

    Olive oil is excellent for skin. There are lots of skin care tips which contain olive oil. Once I used it with honey and lemon juice. Really good for making skin softer and smooth.

    Is it true that can use it to remove makeup as well?
