Olive Oil (Carrier Oil)

The use of pure olive oil for skin dates back thousands of years, and even when compared to modern cosmetic products, it delivers an impressive amount of health benefits.

The healing properties of olive oil make it a valuable ingredient in pharmaceuticals, soaps, and cosmetics. On average, olive oil contains up to 83% oleic acid, up to 21% of fatty acids that include linoleic acid, and up to 20% palmitic acid. Olive oil makes an ideal carrier oil for essential oil treatment or recipes because it has a mild scent and potent antioxidant properties.

Benefits of Olive Oil for Skin

Due to the anti-aging antioxidants found in olive oil, it helps in boosting skin tone and complexion, eliminate wrinkles and age spots, and smoothen the skin, among others.

Wrinkles and Age Spots

The polyphenolic compounds found within olives are also found in olive oil, which can help to reduce oxidative stress in the body, the same type of chronic inflammation that can cause wrinkles and age spots.  When these antioxidants seek out and neutralize free radicals, they can help you look and feel young, while also tightening the skin and increasing elasticity.

Moisturizer

Olive oil is known as a great moisturizer, because it can penetrate deep into the skin, delivering important nutrients like vitamin E and A to the layers of skin cells that need it most. This can keep your skin balanced in terms of moisture, and make your skin feel and look healthier.

Skin Tone and Complexion

The color of your skin and the evenness of your complexion can be affected by olive oil, so regular use is recommended for people who struggle to maintain an even tone. Olive oil can stimulate circulation and the elimination of toxins, generally giving a boost to the overall quality and health of your skin, anywhere on the body. 

Eye Makeup Remover

Leaving eye makeup on is an excellent way to invite a breakout or inflammation, but removing eye makeup can be hard, and rather physically rough on the skin. Applying a bit of olive oil with a cotton swab, you can more easily eliminate the makeup, without having to scrub so hard.

Antibacterial

The skin is the largest organ in the body and is susceptible to attacks from all sorts of pathogens. By applying olive oil to your skin, the natural antibacterial actions of this oil will help to boost your immune system and keep you safe from a wide variety of pathogens.

Sun Protection

Studies have found that olive oil is able to reduce the damage of the sun’s ultraviolet rays on the skin, combating the oxidative stress and potential cellular mutation. This oil can help to protect against and relieve the impact of a sunburn, which makes it a popular alternative to traditional sunblock.

Shaving Inflammation

Many men and women experience inflammation in sensitive areas of the body after shaving. The application of a small amount of olive oil can quickly soothe discomfort and inflammation, and help to speed the healing process.
