Olive Oil For The Skin – Why The Bald Brothers Love It
In this article below we will break down exactly what olive oil is, what the benefits are and you’ll see exactly why we use it as an extract in all of our products!
So What Is Olive Oil?
Olive oil, which is made by pressing olives and extracting their oil, comes in many different forms and has many uses.
Most of us have a bottle of olive oil sitting in our cupboards, which is perfect for use in a salad dressing or pretty much in any meal.
As I said before, we use olive oil a lot!
It’s very likely that most people haven’t considered using it for anything other than enhancing their dinner, but people are increasingly looking toward olive oil for its benefits as a facial moisturizer.
In fact, one study in the Oxford Journals found that when researchers applied olive oil to the skin of mice that were exposed to ultraviolet rays that could cause cancer, the olive oil actually worked to fight off the cancer-causing cells.
The rates of tumors growing were significantly lower in the mice that had olive oil applied to their skin.
There are many different oils and extracts that can be of benefit to your skin and scalp.
But olive oil really is an amazing natural oil with quite a few skincare benefits and uses, and this is why we have included it as an extract in our product range!
Benefits Of Olive Oil For The Skin
Having been bald for about 3 years now, we have plenty of experience in bald head care, maintenance and skin hydration.
We also realized how important it is to start a skincare routine early on and to be dedicated to doing the right thing by applying skin care products to your scalp and face everyday.
Making sure that you are only applying top quality ingredients to your skin is a must. And one of those ingredients is olive oil!
Below are a few benefits of olive oil for your skin and scalp.
#1: Contains Antioxidant Properties
Olive oil is also an antioxidant, so it might help prevent or reverse damage from pollutants and free radicals in the air.
It has a very high concentration of an ingredient called squalene as compared to the other types of fats and oils that humans normally eat.
This gives it an extra antioxidant boost that in return helps boost and reverse damage caused by things such as UV rays, pollutants etc.
#2: It Moisturizes & Fights Bacteria
If you’re prone to acne, using a soap made with olive oil may help decrease your acne by killing off the bacteria that causes it.
Olive oil is also known to moisturize and hydrate your skin, but also helps fight any unwanted bacteria.
#3: It Is Rich In Vitamins
Olive oil has many vitamins, including vitamin A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E, which are all highly beneficial for you skin.
#4: Protects & Hydrates The Most Sensitive Skin
Olive oil has very high moisturizing and nourishing properties to hydrate the skin on both the face and body.
Its high content of vitamin A, D, E and K make it the ideal product to protect and nourish even the most sensitive of skins.
#5: Revitalises & Strengthens The Skin Tonicity
Olive oil can also help revitalize your skin , giving it softness, shine and tonicity due to its high concentration of vitamins and minerals, as well as its content in natural fatty acids.
The high content of vitamins and minerals, together with the content of natural fatty acids also helps stimulate cell regeneration, giving it elasticity and a natural shine.
#6: Protection Against The Sun Rays & Assists In Anti-Aging
Olive oil has anti-ageing properties that act as free radicals form. These free radicals are directly responsible for the ageing of cells.
And for the same reason, olive oil is a great ally against the harmful effects of the sun, helping to lighten spots and/or slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that give a more aged appearance to the skin!
Olive oil is generally known for its regenerative abilities, moiturizing and anti-ageing properties.
We love using it, and so should you.
Can You Use Pure Olive Oil?
Yes, you can use pure olive oil as a skin moisturizer.
Although olive oil is most commonly found as an active ingredient in products such as natural soap bars, face washes or moisturizers.
As with any other natural oil, using 100% olive oil on your skin can become a bit messy.
That’s why it’s better to try out a skincare product that has included the oil as one of its main ingredients.
This way you get to reap the rewards of olive oil, without having a really oily feel on your skin.
