Despite its indispensable use in the kitchen, olive oil has recently been experiencing a boom when it comes to the creation of beauty products. A myriad of cosmetics companies are currently launching various lines based on precious ‘green gold’ which are being received on the market with ample success. Both men and women seem to be particularly impressed by the benefits of olive oil when it comes to caring for one’s physical health. Thanks to its fatty acids, minerals and vitamins, olive oil is particularly useful for treating red, dry skin and for combating aging. It gives the skin renewed elasticity and softness and it’s also great for making one’s hair healthier. Many new scientific research projects are now confirming what the ancients already knew. In ancient Greece, olive oil was used for massages and to treat skin problems. Modern-day buyers can chose from soaps, shampoo, conditioners, face creams and body oils based on olive oil.

Olive oil is fantastic, I use it for everything. It is great for all of the above uses, and as mentioned a great moisturizer, especially if you've been in the sun. If you accidentally have burnt yourself, putting on olive oil can help prevent peeling. It really is important to buy the best olive oil you can afford, and that can be fairly expensive, but most americans don't spend enough money on quality food. My favorite brand is Spectrum organic olive oil, I've been using organic olive oils for a long time, but this is the best. If you have never tried organic olive oil, but only used commercial brands like Bertolli, etc, you will look at organic olive oil and not realize what it is. Those cheaper olive oils are usually processed with chemicals, and not really olive oil at all, so needless to say, they won't have any of the benefits mentioned in this article. skin clinic
