Olive Oil For Superb Beauty Results

Olive oil is not only great for Italian, carb-tastic cuisine; it's also a terrific home beauty ingredient! Here are just a few of the fabulous beauty treatments you can do with olive oil under your own roof.

Soften rough, cracked heels

Rub olive oil generously into your feet before going to bed. Pull on a pair of clean cotton socks. Allow the oil to penetrate and heal your heels overnight. (Need more TLC for your feet? Find out how to make your own foot scrub at home here.)

Strengthen your nails

Every week, use a clean finger nail polish brush to add olive oil to your nails. Coat each nail throroughly. Allow the oil to soak in a few minutes and then wash off the excess. (Pick up lots more nailcare tips in our Beautiful Hands & Feet section.)

Fortify your hair

If you hair is extremely dry and frizzy from chemicals, blow dryers and the sun, use olive oil to get it back in shape. Combine a 1/2 cup of olive oil with two beaten eggs. Saturate your hair with mixture and wrap in a warm towel. Wait 30 minutes and rinse with cool water. (Get more recipes for homemade beauty treatments for your hair here!)

Use a chemical daioletpry on your legs.People who make homemade things for their hair and skin are foolish. There is nothing you can make at home that is even as half as good as the cheapest product you can buy in the store. Plus, the product in the store will have less bacteria in it and will stay bacteria free longer. It almost sounds to me as if you are in one of those silly cults that say the Bible states women can't do this and they can't do that. What I have found with women that follow those madeup manmade rules is that they haven't read the Bible for themselves and haven't got a clue to what God wants us to do.Women are half of the human race. We are equal to men. And God never meant it otherwise although some very insecure dictatorial men will try to tell you so.
