Greece

Ahhh crystal clear blue waters, beautiful islands, fascinating villages, archaeological and historical sites, what more could you want. Greece is a country that I would love to visit and one day I am sure I will. Another thing I love about Greece is Greek Mythology, I think the knowledge of these gods is pretty universal. The beauty of the stories and the diversity of the different gods definitely intrigue individuals.

Fact: Greece is officially known as Hellenic Republic which this may sound stupid but I did not know however, I do know that this was the birth place of olympic games.

One thing that we found to be pretty prevalent in Greece for beauty regimens is,
Olive Oil. This oil can be used for hair, face, body, nails, lips, hands and feet. The main reason olive oil is used is to moisturize and nourish any part of the body from hair to lips. I’ve been reading that Cretan olive oil is preferred. This oil is an ingredient in some beauty products such anti-wrinkle creams.

Face: This product can be used as a makeup remover; it even gets rid of that stubborn
makeup. I tried it yesterday and it really worked!  Climate changes can be hard on your skin but slather on some oil and this will protect and moisturize your face. Make sure to apply in small circular motions. Also, men can use this on their face to shave and it works on different skin types.

Body: Not only is olive oil used to moisture but in can also be used as an ingredient in a scrub. Add salt, sugar and olive oil together to create this scrub. For your nails, warm olive oil in a small bowl and soak your nails for about 10 mins. This will leave your nails and cuticles healthy and soft. Feet can get dry and cracked very easily, rub some olive oil on your feet, put some socks on and go to bed. By morning they will be soft and definitely will reduce the cracking.

Hair: Olive oil is a great hair treatment if you have colored, dry, damaged or even getting rid of dandruff. Massage olive oil in your hair, cover your hair with either a plastic bag or cap and leave it in for about 20 – 30 mins.They say if you use olive oil that has hint of rosemary it works for dark hair. For lighter/fairer hair use olive oil with chamomile.

Now go try these. I have the olive oil in my hair as we speak!

Love,

Elma
