We’ve all been plagued by itchy, peely, scratchy skin that feels like you’ve been taken over by an alligator.
The good news is your kitchen is full of great cures for the itch and scale and relief of dry skin. One of the best products to get rid of dry skin is good old olive oil! And unlike cooking with it, you don’t have to use the most expensive extra virgin cold pressed gourmet brand. Any gooey, oily version of olive oil will do just fine!
Olive oil is rich in polyphenols – good antioxidants that minimize the spread of free radicals, those damaging substances caused by pollution or exposure to the sun,or by excessive smoking and alcohol abuse; and it doesn’t contain harmful, drying perfumes and dyes.
Just apply an amount directly to dry skin, wrinkles, and stretch marks. Unlike those expensive goos and creams you get from the store, olive oil is so cheap – go ahead and slather it all over yourself!
If you’ve got dry hands, no need to worry. Put some olive oil on your hands at night before going to bed. Cover your hands with a pair of inexpensive cotton gloves, and go to sleep. Your hands will look years younger and feel sumptuously smooth and moisturized in the morning!
