Skin Care & Olive Oil

Posted: Updated:

Doctors are finding that using olive oil can do wonders for dry or damaged skin.

It has anti-oxidants that are nutrients which can help prevent and repair damage to your skin's tissue.

Dermatologist Dr. Howard Brooks says, If you have very dry skin, particularly in the winter, or in cases with patients who have eczema or psoriasis, and they just can't get a good moisturizer, it provides moisture to the skin.

Studies have shown the anti-oxidant properties in olive oil can actually improve acne.
