There is always someone proclaiming to know a beauty secret…something that will solve all your problems about aging skin….This article claims it is olive oil…but no scientific evidence is delivered (like where were the subjects in the study (equatorial Africa or northern Finland), what else did the subjects put on their skin or consume by way of food?) – I guess because they don’t think readers are smart enough to understand it? Read the article and see for yourself.
Now I happen to like olive oil and believe it has great qualities that can be used in skin care. Squalane is a moisturizing ingredient that comes from olives. Squalane plus other olive extracts are in all the moisturizers in the Blue Turtle Spa online shop (Light + Calm Lotion, Rich + Calm Cream, Rosacea Defense, Wrinkle Reducing Formula for face and neck, and Advanced Bruise Prevention Formula). It is also one of the carrier oils in the amazing 17.5% esterized Vitamin C anti aging product C + Renew Serum. It is an ingredient that seems to work with almost everyone’s skin….and is great for sensitive skin.
I also like olive oil in shampoos, and only use olive oil when I cook. It has positive qualities where ever you look…but is it a beauty secret? I hardly think so….but them some ‘beauty editors’ may even claim one day that healthy eating is a beauty secret I wish they would just say that junk food/fast food/processed food is a beauty disaster waiting to happen….but they seem to be keeping that a secret for now….
