What Is An Olive?

Olive is small oval-shaped fruit grown on the Olive trees, called Oleo Europaea. They have a small seed or stone in them and hence belong to the family of Drupe fruits. Raw, unprocessed Olives are extremely bitter in taste and are used only for extracting Olive oil. The edible ones are processed using brine Curing methods to remove the bitterness.

Types Of Olives:

There are two basic types of Olives, Green and Black. The colour varies with the amount of ripening and the stage at which they are picked.

  • Green Olives: These are unripe Olives, which are mostly used for extracting Olive oil. They have a firm texture and a very bitter taste.

  • Black Olives: They are fully ripe Olives, which are softer and less bitter compared to green olives.

Olives for skin

Olive oil shows remarkable results in treating damaged skin, as well as improving and maintaining our skin. It helps reduce dryness, wrinkles, eczema and psoriasis, and helps in cell regeneration. Let’s have a look at the detailed benefits of our powerful olives!

Wrinkles And Age Spots

Due to the presence of polyphenolic compounds, olive oil helps reduce the oxidative stress in the body that is caused due to ageing and wrinkles. With regular olive oil massage, you can improve elasticity, reduce wrinkles and dark spots, and make your skin look younger.

Olive Oil For Dryness

Olive oil is full of vitamin E and A, which makes it a super moisturizer that helps reduce dryness and dehydrated skin. Not just that, it also helps maintain the skin's oil balance and makes it look healthier.

Protects From Sun Damage 

Being heavy in consistency and full of antioxidants, olive oil helps protect our skin against sun damage. If you are a swimmer or outdoor sort of a person and want to protect your skin from sun damage, then bring this oil to your rescue and say bye-bye to your skin problems. Massage olive oil on your face, neck, arms and legs, forming a thin layer on your skin. Let your skin absorb this completely. Wash it off after 20 minutes or the next morning.

Itchy Skin

Olive oil is relaxing and soothing in nature. It helps reduce itchiness and discomfort caused due to itchiness; you can use it safely to treat rashes, including nappy rashes. And due to its anti-bacterial properties, it may help treat annoying skin-related allergies and conditions in no time at all.
