Forget it’s rich, luminous color; there’s more than one reason people call olive oil “liquid gold.” Our ancestors used this “super food” olive oil for much more than salad dressing for centuries. It’s not hard to see why: olive oil smells great, tastes great, and is healthy to boot. That’s why the team behind Olive + M chose olive oil as the basis of their luxurious line of oils to cleanse, rejuvenate, and hydrate your skin.
Adding olive oil to your skincare routine provides exceptional benefits for your skin’s overall health. Here’s how:
It’s Abundant In Antioxidants
Olive oil is known for being packed with antioxidants. In particular, you’ll find vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols in the good stuff. These antioxidants provide protection from premature skin aging when applied topically. Vitamin E also helps restore skin smoothness, helps fade scars, and can even help protect against ultraviolet light (the sun’s harmful, skin cancer causing rays).
Olive Oil Can Help You Clear Breakouts
If you ever dealt with acne or oily skin, the idea of slathering your face with more oil may seem counterintuitive. However, this gentle oil is won’t clog your pores or cause more nasty breakouts. Instead, olive oil gently dissolves dirt on your face’s surface, nourishes the skin, and provides balanced moisture that prevents your skin from creating excess oil. Plus, extra virgin olive oil has proven antibacterial properties that can help reduce acne. You’ll be shocked to see your skin clearer and brighter with just a few uses of cleansing oil.
Turn Back The Clock
With natural hydration and antioxidants, Olive + M cleansing oils can actually reverse existing skin damage. By providing your skin with cold pressed olive oil formulas that are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, omegas, and amino acids, your skin doesn’t have to go into overdrive to repair itself. Olive oil’s deeply penetrating moisture helps to boost cell turnover, leaving you with a brighter, younger looking complexion.
Cleansing For Today’s World
Olive oil has been used for centuries in beauty routines, but its applications may be most relevant today. The castor oil in our unique blend draws impurities from the skin; meanwhile the extra virgin olive oil dissolves dirt and infuses your skin with free radical fighting antioxidants. From makeup to pollution, your modern life requires gentle but thorough cleansing. Furthermore, products like those made by Olive + M are created locally from sustainable (and all natural) products.
Sourcing their olive oil from The Texas Olive Ranch, the team at Olive + M support Texas agriculture. Your purchase of Olive + M products ensures the same. Through supporting local, all natural products you’re not just being good to your skin, but good to the earth too!
