OLIVE OIL AS A TOOL OF CARE
For dry, red and chapped hands
Warm up a little bit of olive oil (not another oil because their properties are different) in a dish, if possible in a microwave oven. Make sure that olive oil is warm, but not hot; soak hands in it for 15 to 20 minutes.
For smooth hands
Massage with olive oil mixed with a teaspoon of sugar and will make your hands perfectly smooth! Try it!
For wrinkled and rough skin
Cut a lemon in half and pour oil on each of the two halves, put your elbows on the lemons and keep them in this position for 10 minutes.
For velvety décolletage- against small wrinkles
If you have visible small wrinkles on your chest, put coverings of olive oil and cover it with warm towel. Leave the oil for 5 to 10 minutes, then wash.
For a bit stronger treatment, mix one egg yolk with olive oil and add in a little bit of lemon juice. Apply this mixture on the décolletage with gently massages, put on a cotton shirt and leave it all night.
Face Cleansing Masque
Mix ½ tablespoons of olive oil, ½ tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of clay. Apply this mixture with brush and relax. When the mask becomes dry, wash it with warm water.
