Femininity: Olive Oil

Olive oil is unbelievably good for the skin. Its moisturizing effects are healthy, long lasting and good for all skin types. You can cleanse with it, shave with it and yes, even eat it. Consuming the healthy fats in olive oil can help regulate cell metabolism and turnover, leaving your skin new and fresh.

I use olive oil every night around my eyes. It softens that sensitive skin and can smooth out wrinkles. I don't have any wrinkles as of yet. That could be age, but it could also very well be the olive oil! I put a small amount on one side of a cotton ball and use that to remove my eye makeup. There will be leftover olive oil around my eyes which is a good thing! I'll then wash my face with a gentle face wash, spreading with it the leftover oil and it's moisturizing magic. Then I'll rinse, dry and marvel at my clean and glowing face.

I am fascinated by the Oil Cleansing Method and think that the upcoming Winter season will be the perfect time to try it.
