Olive oil is usually found sitting on your kitchen shelf, but it can also be helpful in your bathroom. This wonder oil can come in handy for the following uses:
Acne control- people often think that oil on the skin would contribute more to aggravating rather than controlling acne. This is not the case with olive oil. For people with acne breakouts, olive oil can be made into a paste by mixing 4 tablespoons of salt with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Apply the mixture on to your face and with a gentle massage, work around your entire face. Leave it on for one to two minutes before rinsing it off with warm, soapy water. Many people testify that this once a day treatment for a week and then reduced to two to three treatments a week will bring real improvement to acne prone skin. This may be because the salt in the mixture acts as an exfoliant which rids the skin of dead cells and dirt while the olive oil maintains and restores the skin’s natural moisture. Very dry skin makes it prone to cuts and breaks and susceptible to infections.
Olive oil is also an excellent hair repair agent. Heat ½ cup olive oil (be careful not to boil it) and apply it on your hair liberally, massaging it on to your scalp. Cover your hair with a plastic bag or with cling wrap and then wrap it with a towel for 45 minutes. Shampoo it off and rinse your hair thoroughly. You will notice that dry and brittle hair will be softer and shinier after a few treatments.
