Being part Italian, olive oil was always a staple growing up in my childhood home. As a child, I never knew the health benefits my parents and grandparents were passing on to me, all I knew is that it added delicious flavor to my food.
Once I began to work in beauty, I was mesmerized by all of its benefits to skin, as well.
Olive fruit oil is high in Vitamin E, which we all know is fantastic for its anti-aging properties. It’s high in oleic acid and is a good skin cell regenerator.
It works to attract external moisture to the skin, while still permitting the skin to properly release sweat, shed dead skin and release sebum.
Olive fruit oil is rich in antioxidants like Vitamin E, but also includes vitamin A, polyphenols, phytosterols and avenasterol. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals and combat environmental pollutants and aggressors that we all deal with daily.
These antioxidants have the natural ability to stimulate cells and return skin to a firmer, smoother, and healthier state.
In order to craft the best lotion for dry skin, olive fruit oil is one of the main ingredients in A Girl’s Gotta Spa! ® Energizing Citrus Body Lotion. This natural moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated and nourished.
I’ve long been using soaps, lotions and body washes with olive oil and have seen for myself the profound affect it can have to keep skin healthy.
Whether you use skin or body care products with olive fruit oil, rest assured, you will kiss dry, itchy skin goodbye!
