Olive oil for face care: the benefits
Your facial skin is one of your calling cards and requires daily care and attention. Did you know your pantry holds an effective ally for its nourishment?
Besides being an indispensable ingredient in the kitchen, olive oil is a veritable beauty elixir for our skin. Hardly a recent discovery, if we consider that the Phoenicia called it "liquid gold" and the Ancient Greeks used it to soften the skin and add shine to hair. With the passing of the centuries, in-depth studies led to the identification of properties and substances with a beneficial effect on the skin, facial skin in particular.
Olive oil is characterized by hydrating, toning and antioxidant properties, thanks to the presence of precious substances: vitamin E which eliminates free radicals, vitamin A which regenerates the skin, oleic acids which make the skin soft and elastic, and last but not least, polyphenols, natural oxidants which nourish the skin and protect it from damage caused by atmospheric agents and the passing of time.
