We can talk skin all day, keeping up with the latest and greatest skincare products is a tough job. This season (and the next one, too, honestly) was all about the glow-up, specifically getting your skincare program smart and sharp so that your natural radiance shines.
Another day, another skincare product launches. However, the secret to glowing skin could be a staple in your kitchen pantry.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil has many skin and health benefits. Studies show that fatty acids in extra-virgin olive oil can protect your liver from oxidative stress. Research also proves that applying olive oil to your face can prevent signs of photo-aging and sun damage. It’s true—using EVOO for your face is a thing. EVOO contains antioxidants that fight free-radical damage and an ingredient called squalene, which is extremely hydrating.”
Applying a few drops to slightly damp skin and massaging it in until absorbed, will help give your face the radiant glow you seek from 100 different chemical products. Remember that less is more, there is no reason to walk around dripping with EVOO to receive its incredible benefits. Using too much may also lead to clogged pores in some skin types. So, start with a few drops on a clean face once or twice a week.
EVOO not only works as a super face moisturizer but a few drops can be added into most of your existing facial products to intensify hydration. A few drops can be added to make-up remover, this will help leave your skin hydrated and glowing as most make-up removers leave skin dry and tight. Now here is something I’m sure you didn’t know, EVOO works like a conditioner on eyebrows and eyelashes, a few drops on a clean mascara brush can be used to brush in the EVOO on brows and lashes. Not only will this moisturize but it will also leave you with fuller lashes and brows.
Do you wear make-up every day? Using EVOO as a face moisturizer and locking it in with a good primer will server as a great base for foundation. The EVOO will not only lock in moisture but will serve as a barrier between your skin and the foundation.
EVOO is not just for the ladies. Gentleman, you guys can use EVOO on your beards to stimulate growth and lock in moisture. Now how’s that for a Movember glow-up?
