Cheap Frill !

Olive oil is a staple in cooking but according to the Time and Money Saving Beauty tips blog it is great for beauty to.

  1. A mixture of 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup vinegar, & 1/4 cup water used as a night cream will make your skin glow. The olive oil softens and moisturized and the vinega lightens discolorations, kills bacteria and loosens dead skin cells. Splash water on your face before applying.
  2. Olive oil can be used as a cleansing cream if your skin is dry.
  3. For a facial, wet face thoroughly, then massage olive oil into your skin. LUse about a half teasponn of sugar and scrub your face with that, then wipe off gently witha warm, wet cloth until the sugar is all gone.
  4. Use olive oil on your feet with clean white cotton socks. Helps to soften up your feet and it absorbs better than baby oil.
  5. It seems when you pour olive oil out there is always a drip, so wipe it up with your hand and rub it in to your elbows. Wonderful softening properties.
  6. Use olive oils as bath oil. Two to three tablespoons will do the trick.
  7. Use olive oil for your hair. Not only does it condition, it also gets rid of the frizz. Put a small drop into your palm & then rub both hands together & apply it to dry hair.
