    I have heard that olive oil applied to skin gives a good shine. Is it true?
    Can it be applied?

    Luv,
    Simi.

    Olive oil is good for dry skin

    Simi,

    Olive oil is good on skin, particularly on dry skin. Also it will heal stretch marks.

    You can also try this if you are interested...make a paste by mixing olive oil and smashed avocados. Apply it like a mask on the face for 10- 15 mins.
    Then rinse it. You will find it moistens the skin and gives a shine.

    PS: Use extra virgin olive oil, for the others are chemically processed.

    Olive oil is really good for skin.

    I got rid of the scar in my face that I had due to stitches.
    It requires constant applying for few months together for results

    Protects from harmful effects of Sun too

    Looks like applying Olive oil to the skin protects it from harmful effects of Sun too.

    I just checked out some website links listed on the leftmost of this page and found lots of benefits of olive oil to skin.

    Try this...olive oil based face scrub

    Take 2 tspn of sugar and mix it in 4 to 5 drops of olive oil into a paste.
    This makes a good face scrub. Apply it on your face and keep massaging in circular motion for 4 to 5 mins.

    Rinse of your face with luke warm water. It leave the skin clear.

    Try almond oil

    You can try almond oil too, if you have a dry skin. That helps in keeping the skin clear and moist.

    Try Bertolli brand...

    Hi Jayana,

    With so many brands of Olive oil being available in the US departmental stores, it is very natural for one to get confused with which one to go.

    Laksn is right, you need to go in for an extra virgin olive oil (it is considered to be the pure form) for using on your skin or for cooking.

    I have tried a few brands and finally settled with BERTOLLI brand. It is a brand imported from Italy. As you may be aware, Italians and Spanish go for Olive oil more than anybody else.

    Laksn, that was good link to usage of Olive oil. I definitely want to try a few methods. Thanks.

    Rathi

    Hello Rathi,
    I use olive oil bought from Nilgiris departmental stores ,tamilnadu.Its BERTOLLI brand imported from Italy.But the brand name which you have given is BETROLLI.Is it a spelling mistake or is there a brand name so called.
    My hair was very dry and in a very bad condition,i use few drops of olive oil instead of any hair oil,now its become soft n looks healthy.
