A beauty and skincare staple since the times of Queen Cleopatra, olive oil is packed with all the goodness of antioxidants, vitamins and an organic compound called Squalene that’s a great hydrating agent! Olive oil is a mild antiseptic and astringent, and can be used for relief from itching, insect bites and mild infections. Use olive oil in a DIY hair spa for healthy, lustrous hair. Mix it with some sugar for an intensely hydrating lip scrub. Use it as a moisturiser for dry skin, or rub it on your nails to strengthen your cuticles. Mix it with sesame and avocado oil for an all-natural sunscreen.
