Here are all the things you didn’t know about olive fruit oil, or as it’s more commonly known olive oil.

Three: If your skin needs hydration, nourishment, relief from irritation or a healthy glow, basically, if you are a living, breathing human being with skincare needs¬–your skin could benefit from olive oil.
Why Is Olive Oil Amazing for Your Skin?
Olive oil is a botanical powerhouse. Oleic acid (a fatty acid derived from olive oil) amazingly replenishes and protects the skin’s natural moisture barrier to prevent future dryness. Olive oil also packs a ton of vitamin E, which is rich in antioxidants to help promote healthy skin and combat nasty free radicals that cause premature ageing. Who knew?
