Olive oil has been used as a hair treatment since ancient Egyptian times.
Everything great you've heard about olive oil for food, that it's rich in essential fatty acids and healthy fats and antioxidants, is also true for olive oil when you use it on your skin. So it's got all the nutrients that you need for your skin and it's also very hydrating.
But surprisingly it also makes a great skin cleanser, not just a moisturizer.
The other great thing about olive oil as a multipurpose skin moisturizer and cleanser is that it's very widely available and affordable. If you are using olive oil for your skin make sure you are looking for MAPA organic extra virgin olive oil which will have the best texture and be noncomedogenic which means it won't clog your pores.

CAUTION & STORAGE
- To use it as a skin cleanser you can literally just massage it into your skin all over and apply a warm wet face cloth over that and allow the steam to help the olive oil penetrate the pores, rinse that away and your skin is left both cleansed and hydrated.
- Preshampoo Hair Treatment: First, warm the olive oil in the microwave or in hot water. Then apply it generously to the ends of hair and scalp. Leave it in for up to 10 to 20 minutes, and then shampoo it out.
- Lip Scrub: Combine coarse sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil for a chapped-lip fix. You can also add a splash of lemon juice for added flavor and acidic exfoliating properties. This scrub is good enough to eat (literally). Plus, you can expand the recipe for your whole body.
- Eye-Makeup Remover: making it a great precleansing step to remove stubborn eye makeup. Follow it up with warm water and a pH-balanced face wash.
