Extra virgin olive oil producer Bellucci Premium comments on an article discussing the benefits of using olive oil as a part of a skin and hair beauty regimen.
In an article published by Daily News & Analysis on January 20th titled “Looks Good Enough to Eat – Olive oil for your hair and skin,” the beauty benefits of the Mediterranean diet staple, olive oil, are discussed. The oleic acid and antioxidants present in olive oil make it not only a healthy food option, but also a nourishing agent for your skin and hair.
The article suggests making an olive oil hair mask to restore moisture, shine, and silkiness to tired hair. It suggests to “warm up olive oil and apply it to your hair; cover it with a shower cap and leave it on for around thirty minutes before washing your hair…The nourishment from the oil helps combat dry hair problems like frizz and split ends by locking in the moisture.” If tangles are a concern, the article suggests spraying a small amount of olive oil into the hair before combing. This will not only help to untangle hair, but also to reduce hair breakage that occurs during brushing.
Olive oil also offers beauty benefits for skin. For those with dry skin, stretch marks, and sunburns, olive oil is particularly helpful. Add a few tablespoons into a bath and allow the oils to soak into the skin and heal it. Olive oil can also be used to remove makeup and as a relaxing massage oil.
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “Olive oil is a great tool in any beauty arsenal. It is so versatile; it can be used on the face, hair, feet, and hands. You can even use it to relieve chapped, cracked lips.” She says, “The secret is in its healthy fats. Olive oil is naturally rich in monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and vitamin E. These antioxidants nourish the body from the inside out. Your skin and hair can even benefit when you simply consume olive oil.”
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.
