I love olive oil: in a deep conditioning hair mask, used a gentle makeup remover and especially drizzled over a piece of crusty sourdough bread.
The benefits of olive oil are well documented.
"This oil is full of antioxidants such as vitamins A and E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. These antioxidants help neutralize the free radicals that cause skin damage. Olive oil also contains squalene and trace amounts of chlorophyll. Squalene is a moisturizer that helps regulate your skin's sebum production."
When I came across this Pure Olive Oil Soap bar at Whole Foods, I was overjoyed. This is a soap that doesn't strip your skin of natural moisture and cleanses naturally. At $1.99 this may be the best beauty product I've purchased this year.
I can't find this particular brand, pictured above, online but Kiss My Face has an 8-pack for $4.
Enjoy and cleanse naturally.
