Can olive oil prevent skin aging?

Olive oil and your skin

The scientific evidence that olive oil is good for us keeps getting stronger. In terms of health, studies have proven that diets that incorporate this oil (such as those found in the Mediterranean region) help people live longer, healthier lives. Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), olive oil has also been linked to lower cholesterol, and may also normalize blood clotting, blood sugar levels, and insulin levels.

    But one recent study is shedding light on the potential beauty benefits associated with ingesting olive oil. (We’ll get to its topical uses below.) In this study of almost 3,000 men and women between the ages of 45 and 60, a higher intake of olive oil correlated with less severe photoaging in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of sun damage like uneven tone and rough texture. So the next time you break out the pots and pans or serve up a salad, be sure to reach for the olive oil, too.

     To reap even more benefits from olive oil, you can use it on your skin as well. It’s a great moisturizer for dry hands, feet, and cuticles. It can even be used a deep treatment for your hair. You can also add a little olive oil to the tub when taking a bath for extra skin hydration. You can even use it on dry patches of skin, chapped lips, and just about anywhere else for that matter!

    So the next time you’re in the supermarket, consider picking up a bottle of olive oil for your kitchen and your bathroom. This is just one of many beauty shortcuts that don’t have to cost a bundle. What are your cooking-turned-beauty secrets?

      We do sell olive oil as a skin care serum. That is made by Amrit Organic. It is 100% certified organic. We also provide variety of different organic oils which have incredible benefits for the skin.
