Olive Oil: The Oily Benefits!

I received an e-mail from my mother the other day.
She was telling me about using natural oils instead of lotions!

I think thank lotions are so deceiving.
They're always coming out with some new, better and
more magical then the other brands.

I know personally, I'm addicted to Dove.
I mean, it helps that my boyfriend works for their
parent company....
And yes, sometimes I feel like this:

Maybe I should give it up for a month and try using natural oils
to see how my skin differs!

My mom sent me an article on the issue and I thought it was interesting.
It makes sense that natural oils work best as lotions,
but I just never tried it.
I think coconut oil would be my favorite, I love coconut.

But how can you work olive oil into your beauty routine ?
You can moisturize, shave your legs, take off make up, exfoliate your body (by adding sugar to your oil..or you could make cookies...haha), you can use it on babies, and in your hair!
It seems like the benefits are endless.

Who thinks they could give up lotions for a month and try this out??

  1. i recently switched from washing my face with dove to just using jojoba oil and found that is is so much better. i got the idea here, http://simplemom.net/oil-cleansing-method/. jojoba oil is amazing. my face is usually oily but since using the oil cleansing method i have not had that problem. i noticed an improvement in my skin too. also i read somewhere jojoba oil and olive oil are non-clogging so it's all good.
