OLIVE OIL A SAVIOUR FOR SUMMER SKIN PROBLEMS
For painful sunburns, olive oil can be used to help soothe your painfully reddened skin. While olive oil is not intended to be used as suntan oil, primarily because it does not contain any sunscreen. Mix olive oil with an equal amount of water. Beat until it becomes an emulsion. Apply to the affected area. For blisters, make a compress of warm olive oil and chamomile tea. Apply to the blistered area.
Exfoliating is important in warmer months. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don’t exfoliate, your skin can look dull and dry, no matter how much moisturizing lotion you use. Mix a small amount of olive oil with ½ teaspoon of sugar. Apply to
the face and body, being careful not
to exfoliate under the eyes, and then
Slather olive oil – on the face and body. Use straight olive oil or olive oil mixed with your favorite lotion to moisturize after exfoliating. And, always moisturize before you go to sleep so that your skin can rejuvenate overnight. Olive oil nourishes and softens the skin.
Olive oil soap is simply the best way to wash your skin. Because of its emollient and soothing effect, olive oil soap softens and moisturizes the skin as it cleanses.
