Some researchers and other advice columnist say that Olive Oil is a danger to the skin and could cause more damage then we could imagine. Well one would think that before you apply any oil or ointment to the skin that the area would be properly cleansed. Apply such without the cleansing step will only trap dirt and bacteria that could cause infection. It doesn’t take a scientist or a doctor to figure that out. Olive Oil is very beneficial to the skin, especially when combined with other agents that helps improve the appearance of the skin. However, I will say that Olive Oil by itself on a daily basis or else the issue in the first couple of sentences could come to past. Beside, Olive Oil packs a powerful punch and alone, does not need to be use on a daily basis.
Olive Oil has many antioxidants that is efficient enough to help fight against aging skin. It slows down the metabolism rate of the body cells, assisting in repairing and preventing skin cell damage. Olive Oil allows the antioxidants to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, leaving the skin with a firmer and smoother look. Olive Oil is also beneficial in the winter months. It steps I take to prevent dry, cracked, scaly skin during that time of the year is to soak in a warm bath with olive oil once a week. This leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth for days.
Olive Oil contains both Vitamin A and E, which can help repair skin damage caused by the weather, sun and air pollution. There are many factors that could cause skin damage; acne, aging, sun damage, and so on. Vitamin A and E are important to the growth and development of the skin. And if I should get scientific with the repair process, free radicals that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, Vitamins A and E are the superheroes that fly in with full force and go into full battle against the free radicals to repair the damage that they caused. Returning the skin to its beautiful, soft and smooth state. These agents could also reduce any scarring caused by cuts, burns, scrapes and other damaging factors.
So I ask the question, What would Olive Oil be a danger to the health of the skin?
