Olive Oil Skin & Hair Care

What fantastic ideas on how to incorporate this kitchen staple into your daily skin, hair and body care routine! I can’t wait to experiment!

P.s I’ll be back fully soon after my exams!

Budget Friendly, Too

I really can’t get enough of this stuff! It’s always my go-to face wash, body wash, moisturiser, hair conditioner and cooking oil (and anything else I might need it for).

Ever since using this oil, my skin is softer, my face is clearer and my hair is so much more manageable! I really, really recommend trying to incorporate this oil into your routine, if you haven’t already tried it!

Olive Oil Face (And Body) Cleansing:
Use just the olive oil: pour some on hands and massage into face for a few minutes, really allowing the oil to sink into the skin (I usually do this in the shower so I can rinse it off easier) and rinse off.
If you need more exfoliation (and for really soft skin), add sugar or sea salt!

You can also use the oil more intensely using the oil-cleansing method; massage the oil into your skin and…

    I’ve done the ‘olive oil mask’ (with hot washer) with good results, but have never tried it as a cleanser – thanks for the tip! I love using coconut oil for my hair but might give the olive a go too…

  6. I just started using an oil cleanser after reading about it on Keepin’ It Kind. Its a mix of almond and castor oil and it has really transformed my dry winter skin. This one is my next try. I guess you’d use an olive oil without too much smell?
    Thanks for reposting Poppy 😉

      Hi Angela! I bet almond oil is lovely on your face, I use it in sugar scrubs but must try as a cleanser. When I’ve used olive oil, I’ve used a lighter oil and not the finest you’d use in dressings for a dinner party! I don’t think the moisturiser qualities are any less and it smells less strong. Thanks for coming by 🙂

      • Okay, yea I wouldn’t want to use the green oil I don’t think. The mix of castor oil and almond smells great which is one reason why I wondered about olive oil being too thick but I assumed it would be wonderful for my skin so I wanted to know which you’d use. Thanks 😉

        Yes I’d definitely go for a lighter olive oil. It will make your skin really soft and it’s great on the ends of your hair too 😀
