If you’ve never used olive oil as part of your beauty regimen, you’re in for a real treat. It is rich in squalane, a natural emollient that is great for your nails, lips, hair, and skin. In addition, it is packed with Vitamins A & E and polyphenols that make it popular in many prepackaged beauty products. While this oil packs a nutritional punch, you can also use it on your face. The same qualities and benefits you experience on the inside can benefit your skin. This little fruit’s versatility lends itself well to more than one use, so buy a small bottle and put it in your bathroom right next to your toothpaste and deodorant.
