Beauty Secrets: Top 7 Ways To Use Olive Oil

Posted by ThatGirlShaeXo on Monday, February 16, 2009.

Hey guys!! So instead of a review today Im gonna tell you about some ways to use a very common house hold item in your beauty routine :) The item is Olive Oil. This thing is magic, no lie, it does so much for you other than keep you healthy. And if you cook, there HAS to be some of this in your cupboards!! Here are the top 7 ways I use it. If you dont want to read all this just watch my video at the bottom of this blog, its all in there as well along with some demenstrations :)

Here's the Olive Oil and the Treatment I Use:

1. Shaving - after washing just rub a bit of olive oil on the area you're going to be shaving and just get to it! haha I know thats a broad statement but really its that easy, just make sure you dont apply to much or else it will be way to slippery.

2. Makeup Remover - I use this everyday! Apply it just how you would with normal makeup remover. It works just as well and theres not all those yucky chemicals in your eye :) Just make sure to wash your eyelids after using it so that the oils dont clog your pores.

3. Hair Mask - This is awesome I do it every other day. If you have ethnic hair or coarse hair this will work wonders for you. Just put it in washed hair, put on a shower cap, and blow dry for about 10 - 15 minutes, or use this awesome product i found at Sally Beauty its called Silk Elements Megasilk Olive Moisturizing Treatment. It's $11.99 and it smells amazing! No funky olive oil smell :) After you wash your hair in the bath or shower let this stuff sit in your hair for about 5-7 minutes and its a done deal :) Do it every other day for results.

4. Treats Lice - Put in your hair for no less that 3 hours and no more than 8 for three days. Keep it in a shower cap to stop it from being messy. after the three days take a metal comb and poke around to see if its taken care of. Then wash your hair with dish soap and get all the dead buggies out :)

5. Softens Dry Areas - Sometimes the more perfumey lotions dry your skin out but this is a sure bet. Just apply small dabs to your dry spots till they begin to heal :)

6. Chapped Lips - This is just like any other lip conditioner except you cant leave the house with it on. Let it set on your lips for 10-30 minutes and then rub em with an old tooth brush, they'll be so soft and smooth its madness.

7. Cuticles - soak your nails in a small bowl of warm olive oil for about 20 minutes, then just wash it off and watch your cuticles become beautiful :)
