One of the most beneficial natural ingredients for skin, hair, and overall health is extra virgin olive oil. Though the word, ‘oil,’ may scare those with naturally oily skin, this home remedy can work wonders for all skin types and is even useful for other beauty benefits.

The most common use for olive oil is due to its moisturizing capabilities. If you have dry skin, olive oil can be your best friend. But for all skin types, it can make skin smoother, softer, brighter, and firmer by aiding with skin cell rejuvenation. This oil will also rid pores of dirt and bad oils, which makes it a great cleansing product. Due to its antioxidant content, olive oil can protect the skin from UV rays, fighting free radicals that can show signs of aging and cause skin cancer.

This powerful remedy is not only limited to skincare but is also widely used for hair care. Using olive oil in your hair can make for a hydrating detangler as well as a wonderful conditioner. It can heal damaged, dry hair that is prone to split ends and frizz. It removes product build up and makes hair shinier and healthier.

Use olive oil on your lips as a balm or scrub to hydrate chapped lips. You can also apply it on your cuticles to make nails look stronger. Olive oil is also a great makeup remover especially for sensitive skin! See this article on for more olive oil benefits and various skin and hair masks.
