Quick and useful beauty tip

The Beauty Product in your Household

Olive oil is best known for it’s food qualities, but another hidden use is cosmetic.

For centuries women in the know have been using Olive Oil to nourish dry skin, add shine to hair, soften cuticles, moisturize lips and as a detangler for those with curly locks.
