Traditionally used for centuries in cooking to healing, olive oil is nothing new. It is a favourite and tremendously useful stuff for the immense number of benefits. I take full advantage of this prized oil as natural remedies for beauty secret. An ancient beauty treasure! I found and sifted through a ton of information and hope to share the best of it with readers here.

Studies show that olive oil as a foodstuff has a high concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids, which promotes "good" cholesterol (HDL) while lowering "bad" cholesterol (LDL). Known to be gentle on the digestive system, olive oil even helps to prevent gallstones and soothe ulcers. Besides, the good quality oil contains valuable vitamins, and it is loaded with antioxidants which help to protect the body from cancer.

Nevertheless, the uses of olive oil are not restricted to culinary and medicinal ones only, yet are also beneficial in hydrating and softening the skin and good for the strength and vitality of the hair. High in antioxidants, the nutritional powerhouses protect against age-accelerating free radicals and guard both body and skin from the inside out.

The emollient properties of this miraculous fruit make it a perfect choice for hair care. It is the perfect solution for dry and damaged hair with split ends. Olive oil can act as a conditioner, as a remedy to fix frizzy hair and keep the scalp clean. Olive oil hair treatments can make the hair lustrous, shiny, beautiful, healthy and manageable. It also helps clear dandruff and stops hair loss.

Are you a homemade skin care?
Easily available, the hair treatments can be done by oneself! Concoct simple skin care recipes right at home! Let us find out the mini beauty treatments!

Bath: For a moisturizing soak, add about ¼ cup olive oil and several drops of essential oil to your bathwater. Lavender oil will help you relax before going to bed.

Dry Skin: Gently massage a small amount of olive oil on extra dry areas such as elbows or heels.

Hands: Whip up a quick sugar scrub for rough, dry hands. Combine two tablespoons of oil with two tablespoons of sugar. Rub on hands until sugar begins to dissolve. Rinse with warm water. VoilĂ ! Silky-smooth hands.

Feet: Apply a liberal amount of oil to feet at bedtime. Cover with cotton socks. Not sexy, but oh-so-soft feet in the morning! The magic works for hands, too. Cover with white cotton gloves.

Face: Create a moisturizing facial mask with olive oil, honey, and an egg yolk. Beat until well blended and apply to face. Relax! Leave on for 15 minutes, rinse with warm water.

Nails: Warm a small dish of olive oil (not too hot) with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Soak nails for 5- 10 minutes. This softens cuticles while it strengthens nails.

Hair: For a simple oil treatment, warm several tablespoons of olive oil (again, not hot). Rub into scalp and hair. Cover with a shower cap or small plastic bag. Leave on for 20-30 minutes.

For extra conditioning, mix an egg yolk with the olive oil. This is great for dry hair and split ends. It may even heal dandruff. Shampoo twice after this treatment!

Lips: Alleviate chapped lips with straight olive oil. Dab on lips especially helpful at bedtime.

Make this anti-aging, antioxidant rich oil YOUR personal beauty secret!

To receive the full benefit of olive oil, do not limit it to external care. Take a cue from the Mediterranean culture, EAT it! Incorporate this healthy oil regularly into your diet and enhance your health while promoting a smooth, radiant complexion and help maintain elasticity of skin.

I understand how you feel because I’ve been in that situation before. I tried using different kinds of shampoos to stop my hair loss but it didn’t work for me. But good for me i found the right solution. Proper diet, enough time of sleep and not worrying too much can prevent this problem
