Yep, you read that right. A lot of my friends/family are in complete disbelief when I sneak to the kitchen in search of the olive oil. Haha! But in all seriousness…..
Let me first start off by telling you that I have extremely dry skin. There is, what it seems, absolutely zero oil produced on my face, which is why I believe olive oil doesn’t make my face break out into a hot mess. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I get the occasional period pimple on my chin or forehead, but I’ve never had acne.
Lately I have been on an all natural/no chemicals in my moisturizer, lotion, shampoo/conditioner so I searched high and dry for the perfect moisturizer. It took me by complete surprise not being able to find a single lotion that wasn’t drenched with added chemicals, fragrances, etc. So if the price I have to pay is smelling like olives, then so be it. 🤷🏼♀️
I keep my olive oil in a small dropper bottle next to the sink in my bathroom so I (and guests) don’t have to see a large bottle of olive oil sitting on the counter. LOL. And it is easy for me to take with me when I travel.
A little advice: If you do decide to use a chemical free moisturizer such as olive oil, I would recommend making sure your face is very clean before applying.
FYI: Still searching for a Shampoo/Conditioner that is chemical free. Help a girl out if you have any recommendations!
OH and BTW: For lotion I use a lotion bar that is made out of Beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oil for fragrance. It is AMAZING! It is made by a company called Roark Acres. You can find it here!
