Olive oil benefits for skin
Provides deep hydration
Olive oil seals in moisture to smooth and plump the skin, thanks to its fatty acids and antioxidants. The result is hydrated, glowing skin.
Olive oil contains antioxidants, including vitamin E. Antioxidants help calm redness and irritation caused by acne or psoriasis. They also protect against free radicals that can lead to wrinkles and premature aging of the skin.
Olive oil contains alpha-hydroxy acids, which stimulate the shedding of dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth. The result is smoother-looking skin.
Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Olive oil contains vitamin E, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains antioxidants that help protect against free radicals, which contribute to aging.
Protects against the sun’s UV rays
Olive oil helps prevent sunburn by providing a natural SPF of 6. This is higher than many commercially available sunscreens. Olive oil can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so it’s best to apply sunscreen over top of it.
Reduces puffiness and swelling
The antioxidant known as oleocanthal may reduce inflammation and swelling associated with everything from rosacea to sinus infections. You can also use olive oil to reduce the puffiness and swelling under your eyes. Simply place a warm compress over your eye for about five minutes to allow the antioxidants to penetrate.
Helps soothe dry or irritated skin
Olive oil can help relieve dry skin and irritation from both psoriasis and eczema. Applying a pure, cold-pressed olive oil to affected areas of the skin can also help your body heal itself by moisturizing the skin and keeping it hydrated.*
