Olive oil is derived from olives and is a staple of the Mediterranean diet. The oil has many nutritional benefits when consumed, but it is also frequently applied to the skin and hair.
When applied to the skin, Olive oil acts as an antioxidant and it may prevent premature aging. Olive oil contains the fat-soluble of vitamins A, D, E, and K. These vitamins are beneficial for the skin. For example, people have used vitamin E oil topically throughout history to treat a variety of skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema.
Also, olive oil has been shown to have antibacterial properties. However, there are still very few studies on olive oil's ability to control bacteria on the skin. Also, olive oil is a popular natural moisturizer that is often used to soften both skin and hair.
