Ever wondered why most Spanish women have such beautiful skin? I have. And as mine wasn’t as good as it should have been, I decided to get to the bottom of it. After much digging, what did I find? Olive oil.
Yes, olive oil. It’s the secret to why so many Spanish women are beautiful.
Spaniards eat more olive oil than almost anyone else in the world, which is also one reason why they have low incidences of cancer and heart disease, and are the world’s second-longest living people. But Spanish women also often use olive oil on their skin. As a cleanser and a moisturizer. If you look closely, even on elderly Spanish women, you won’t see a lot of them with terribly lined faces. For that, they can thank their beauty regimes and most include oil olive.
Using olive oil to improve your skin, to cleanse it and to moisturize it is cheap and easy. It takes no more than five minutes a day, and only requires a bottle of olive oil and a face cloth. Here’s how.
1. Pour about half a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil into your palm and massage it all over your face for about 2 minutes.
2. Once the oil has completely soaked into your face, get a clean face cloth, soak it in hot water and press it onto your face until it cools.
3. Rinse off the face cloth, soak it in hot water again, and press to your face till it cools.
4. Pat your face dry, and that’s it. Do this morning and evening and, in less than a week, you’ll notice a huge difference to the texture and clarity of your skin.
Nowadays I have skin that’s as beautiful as any Spanish woman’s and, with olive oil, you can too.
