We’re just a week away from Santa’s big arrival, which means that your skin is really starting to feel the effects of the cold winter chill. A fabulous treat to a day spa for deep skin moisturizing would be great, but who has the time or the money.
So if you’re ready for a quick little “pick me up” for your skin, try this great little technique that is certain to have your skin softer than a baby’s bottom just in time for the holiday.
Next time you step into the shower, take with you a small plastic travel bottle filled with Olive Oil straight from your kitchen. After shampooing your hair, and maybe while waiting for your conditioner to do its trick, rub a little of the oil into your skin, paying extra attention to the areas that dry out quickest elbows, knees and hands. And with what is left on your hands, dab your cheeks, forehead and chin. These areas tend to get dry and flaky in winter, so a little extra help will always work wonders.
Once you step out of the shower, finish off with a nice dose of your favorite body moisturizer and enjoy your silky smooth skin. You’ll feel like you stepped out of the spa, yet your wallet will have survived.
Other than moisturizing, you may be wondering if Olive Oil has any lingering benefits for skin? Well, I’m so glad you asked or at least I think you would have. Olive Oil contains a natural moisturizer, called squalene. Sebum is what makes our skin too greasy, but squalene has the incredible ability of regulating its secretion. This means that, when used on your skin, the sebum will be reduced, and you will experience less skin problems than before.
Another nutrient that exists in Olive Oil is chlorophyll. This helps a great deal in healing wounds and other scars. Acne also tends to subside in the presence of Olive Oil. But remember, a little goes a long way.
So the next time you stock up on the E.V.O.O. for the kitchen, don’t forget a small bottle for the shower as well!
