Olive Oil, My New Best Friend
I've always from time to time used a tiny amount of olive oil in my hair when I wash it. It's an Italian thing. A dime sized dot goes into in my palm, and I rub my palms together to warm and distribute it in my hands and then run it through my hair especially close to the ends. My hair is so dry & it really helps condition it.
So the other day as I'm putting the olive oil in my hair, I'm looking at my over 50 face and thinking, even using the emu cream (which in the past has worked wonders on me) above my eye looks droopy and saggy. And I think to myself, well if it does such a great job with the hair, what about the face. So I take another tiny dot and do the same thing on my face. I did it 2 days and I'm telling you it firmed up the upper lid eye area! My tired eyes don't look tired anymore.
Then I think, well maybe I should google it since I don't want to clog my pores and end up with teenage acne or something. And what do you know, I find out that olive oil has been used on the skin since the times of the Egyptians...who knew?
After that I spent time working it into the laugh lines and lines around my lips and down my neck and you know what? It really does look better.
So girls go get your extra virgin olive oil out of your pantry and give it a try..........it's so much cheaper than face and wrinkle creams!
....that is the question? So many of my crafter and artist friends blog. They tell me, it's the thing to do, the place to be.....be seen...
Well, well, I was awarded the "Stylish Blogger Award" from Marlene at Marlene's Musings . Marlene is along time online friend...
Last night I had a very unusual dream. For one thing I don't usually remember my dreams and when I do, they usually don't involve so...
