Ancient Egyptians Knew This! Learn the Beauty Secrets of Olive Oil!!

Ancient Egyptians knew the value of olive oil.  It was highly prized and used for food, gifts, perfumes, and trade.   Today, we know way more about olive oil and we’re going to share with you some handy tips on how you can get the most out of it – for your face!

Here’s the best pick of the bunch:  Keep a supply of olive oil in your bathroom cupboard.  But don’t slather it all over yourself!  Although, trust me, that would be amazing for your skin!  Olive oil will keep you looking vibrant and healthy, your skin will look and feel better than ever before, and you will never turn to any other product because - I’m telling you - with olive oil, you have everything you need for your complete beauty treatment!

1 Eye makeup:  This is the best eye makeup remover ever!  Gentle on your skin and so beneficial.  Dip cotton pad into oil.  Wipe beneath your eyes and on your eyelids to remove eyeliner and mascara.  Rinse with warm water.

2. Chapped Lips:  You can soothe dry, chapped lips with a lip balm.  Mix coarse sugar with a tsp olive oil.  A splash of lemon can be added for some flavour and aroma.  Gently apply to lips with a toothbrush, then rinse.  And here’s a recipe for a homemade lip balm:  Mix equal parts olive oil and melted beeswax with an essential oil for a lovely lip balm.

3 Nail Care:  Olive oil is a fabulous cuticle softener!   Apply a small amount of oil to nail beds to soften the cuticles.  Rub over your nails, massaging your fingertips and liberally apply to your hands as well!  Also rub a thin layer all over your skin after a waxing or shower.  It acts as an intense moisturizer to soothe extra-dry skin.

4. Try this Facial Toner:  Mix a ½ cup oil, ¼ cup vinegar and ¼ cup water and use as a toner before bed.

5. Eye cream:  Gently dab along the under-eye area to nourish the skin and soften fine lines.  Try this trick:  Keep it in the fridge and apply when the eye area is puffy!

6. Rejuvenate your face:  Make an olive oil face mask.  Mix 1 egg yolk, 1 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp olive oil and a few drops lemon juice.  Apply to your clean face for 5 to 10 mins then rinse off.

7 Facial Scrub:  Combine coarse sugar with olive oil to exfoliate dry patches; your skin will thank you for that!  Simply massage on and rinse thoroughly.

8 As a Shaving Cream:  Use olive oil to shave your legs rather than chemical foams!  Pamper your skin, knowing it’s being infused with vitamins while you shave.

These are just some of the benefits of olive oil for your face.  There are tons of others and we’ll share more with you in another video, so keep a look out for it.
