Most of us have a bottle of olive oil in our cupboards because it is perfect to use in various dishes or salad dressings. What not all of us know is that virgin olive oil has exceptional benefits as a face moisturiser, too.
Olive oil is widely known for its health benefits, as it protects the body from heart disease, does not cause obesity and is rich in vitamins and Antioxidants that can even help prevent cancer.
As far as skin care is concerned, olive oil with its major Antioxidants such as vitamin E, polyphenols and phytosterols helps protect the skin from premature skin aging, restores skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. It penetrates deeply into the skin while providing a cleansing effect.
Another olive oil benefit for skin is its usefulness in exfoliating applications. A common exfoliating method is to use 1 tablespoon of olive oil with natural sea salt and then rub this mixture over the skin. Olive oil is also suggested for nail and cuticle care, with many women using it as natural eye makeup remover. Further applications include its use in homemade facial masks.
All the benefits of this precious ingredient can be found in Purelogicol’s Tri-Peptide Deep Cleanser which contains olive oil in order to provide your skin comfort and moisture. It also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. It will soften and gently soothe your face and will make it look young and beautiful!
