Olive oil cleanser + sugar scrub + honey = antioxidant rich, hydrating face and body treatment
6 Tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. (I like California Olive Ranch EVOO)
2Tbs of Castor oil (boosts cleansing benefits, but can be drying, which is where Olive oil comes in to play)
BENEFITS: Olive oil and sugar help to gently cleanse and exfoliate dead layers of skin off of the face and body, while adding honey as mask after you scrub will provide moisture binding benefits and has antibacterial properties to heal and nourish skin.
Each of these ingredients offers serious antioxidant, clarifying and hydrating benefits for a youthful radiant glow.
Other uses of Olive oil:
As my Italian grandmother says, “use a little olive oil on your skin, take a little olive oil for your body.” She would literally give me a spoon full of olive oil and tell me to drink it so my hair and skin would be forever shiny, healthy and beautiful. (BTW, she is an 89 year old beauty and has the skin of 40 year old … perhaps she is on to something)
You can use olive oil on your cuticles and hands in place of moisturizer (add a little essential oil such as grapefruit or orange for a refreshing scent)
