What does olive oil do for your skin?

As we know, olive oil is fantastic in your diet—and it's also a great addition to skin care (and that's why it's used in a number of Maxine Warsh natural skin care products). It contains Vitamin E and antioxidants to fight free radical damage and is extremely hydrating and moisturizing.

For extra soft skin, try a tiny drop of the real stuff (but not too much!) now and again on your body's dry spots and massage in gently (remember, less is more!). A teensy tiny drop massaged gently into the delicate skin around the eye area also can be especially hydrating—and next time you're in the kitchen... massage a dab of olive oil into your cuticles to help soften and strengthen nail growth.  Read more on olive oil.

Note: Harvard Public Health recommends you substitute olive oil and make your own salad dressings as a matter of course for your heart health... take little steps to Age Less!
