Make your own magic potion with a few drops of the ‘liquid gold’
Known as the ‘liquid gold’ in ancient times, olive oil is not just for cooking but getting that dream glow for your skin that others will feel envy of as well. Try out these tips to make your own natural, chemicals-free magic potion that could be used to conjure up a range of things you need, from skin scrub to makeup remover, moisturiser and anti-wrinkle serum.
Mix 1 teaspoon ground coffee, 1 teaspoon brown sugar or crushed refined sugar, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and use this as a face and body scrub. It helps remove dry and dead skin and give you a healthy and glowing skin, removing fine lines and dark spots as well.
Gently remove your makeup with a few drops of olive oil — and without the use of any chemical remover! Put a dab of olive oil on a cotton ball and rub it all over your face. Your makeup will disappear.
Use olive oil as a natural moisturiser. It contains vitamin E and antioxidants which help nourish your skin.
Mix 1 teaspoon olive oil with 1/4 teaspoon almond oil and 1 teaspoon cucumber gel. Store this mixture in an air-tight container in a refrigerator for up to a month. Use it around your eyes during night time and remove all the tiredness around your eyes in no time.
Mix 1 teaspoon olive oil with 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel and 10 drops of lavender essential oil. Transfer this into an air-tight container and store it in your refrigerator up to a month. Apply this serum on your face before bed time. Massage your face for three minutes and the next morning wash your face with lukewarm water.
