Bellucci Premium, a producer of high-quality extra virgin olive oils, responds to an article that shares how olive oil can help hydrate hair and skin in the cold winter months.
According to the DNA India article published on November 28th titled “Have dry skin and hair? Use olive oil,” those who already have issues with dry skin and hair may need extra protection in the winter. Olive oil is a great hydrator and can provide many health benefits to an individual’s hair and skin.
Olive oil can be used on the whole body as a moisturizer, says the article. Problem areas such as elbows and knees can benefit from olive oil if massaged onto the skin. Olive oil can also be used on the face. “By massaging this oil, you can improve the elasticity of the skin and its regenerative properties will help prevent the formation of stretch marks,” the article notes.
For hair issues such as dandruff and frizzy hair, olive oil can also offer a solution. The article explains how massaging olive oil into the scalp and then washing it out can help combat issues with dandruff. For those with split ends, heating the oil and applying it to hair can help make it shiny and even tame frizz.
“There are a number of ways that olive oil can be used other than cooking,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Italian olive oil producer Bellucci Premium. “Using it as a moisturizer is a great and natural way to hydrate skin. It has healing properties that allows it to nourish and repair the skin.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
