use olive oil as a beauty productBelieve it or not, olive oil makes a great beauty product!  It is natural and inexpensive if you buy the regular kind.  No need to buy the more expensive extra virgin olive oil for anything except cooking.  Check out these 5 creative uses for olive oil that you might not have expected.  Who would have thought that oil could make you more beautiful! 🙂

 1. Get rid of acne.  Make a paste by mixing together salt and olive oil.  Rub it on your face, let it sit for about 3 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water.  Do this for about a week and then do it less frequently (2 to 3 times a week).  The salt exfoliates your skin and the olive oil moisturizes it.  

 2.  Use olive oil as a massage oil.

 3.  Use it as a hair conditioner.  Shampoo your hair first, and then apply the olive oil to your hair.  Be sure to rinse thoroughly.  Another option is to heat up some olive oil, apply it to your hair,  wear a shower cap or wrap a plastic bag over your hair for about 30 to 40 minutes and then wash your hair with shampoo.  Olive oil will moisturize your hair and make it look shiny.

 4.  Soften your cuticles before a manicure by dipping your fingernails in olive oil.  Rub the oil into your nails.

 5.  Use olive oil in place of shaving cream.  Women can use it to shave their legs.  Men can use it on their faces.  It is a great alternative for anyone with allergies or for people with dry skin.
