Pampering and spoiling yourself is a wonderful feeling. Although today spas are offering those treats, you can get those wonderful benefits at home, using quality products made from extra virgin olive oil. Shampoos, soaps, rinse cremes, body gels and lotions. Natural products made from the magical olive oil. The Mediterranean women use olive oil to make their hair shine and their skin soft. These treatments are not new. They exist from the Biblical times.
When your hair is exposed to cold and dry weather, blow dryers and hair sprays, massage extra virgin olive oil into your hair, leave it for half an hour and then shampoo. Your hair will have a soft and silky feel and it will be shiny.
Use extra virgin olive oil to moisturize your skin. If the extra virgin olive oil does protect the inside of your body, it will protect the outside too.
Moving from a warm climate to a cold one I developed a bad case of eczema in my hands. After many expensive medical treatments with no results I started applying extra virgin olive oil three times a day. A little over three months later the eczema disappeared completely (this is my personal experience).
Mix a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with half a cup of warm water and a couple tablespoons of liquid baby soap, apply it to your legs and any area you like to shave and leave it for two minutes. It softens and moisturizes the hair for a smooth shaving.
Stretch marks for both men and women appear on breasts, tummy, thighs, buttocks and arms. If you apply the “liquid gold” in the morning and at night, those unwanted marks are going to shrink dramatically. Skin blemishes diminish also.
