Have Beautiful Healthy Skin The Natural Way

Anti-aging makeup ‘tricks ‘ help us look years younger and with Olive Oil’s Skin Care Secrets ….. ageless!
As a seasoned Makeup Artist I focus special attention on the eye and lip area since these age faster than other areas of the face. Larger lips and an open eye look give you a youthful appearance and are achieved with artistry tricks.
Makeup techniques take years off your appearance and these tips can be easily taught so you can duplicate the look whenever you desire.
A primary step for good skin care each week is exfoliation, this will help your skin look younger immediately and absolutely radiant after makeup application.
Like the famous Italian actress Sophia Loren, I use Olive Oil for skin care. Sophia Loren is over 70 and is considered one of the most beautiful woman in the world without Plastic surgery. Olive Oil is an ancient Roman beauty secret and one I’ve suggested to my clients for many years. Try a dab of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( first cold pressed ) several times a week on your face and use it’s as a total body moisturizer.
Olive Oil, or ‘Liquid Gold’ has been used throughout the Mediterranean for thousands of years as both a health and beauty aid. This precious oil has been treasured as a beauty aid because it protects, tones and moisturizes the skin. Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are easily absorbed and water soluble so it won’t clog pores. Premium Olive Oil actually ‘feeds’ your skin to make it firmer, truly ‘anti-aging.’
Scientifically it’s proven Olive Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory agent for total body health. As we age the inflammatory response is higher making Olive Oil benefits of greater value…. ‘Good health to you!’
If you or a loved one suffer from an Auto-Immune Disease like ‘Rheumatoid Arthritis,’ read the benefits of Olive Oil and the Mediterranean diet @
Directions as a moisturizer for the face: Warm a tiny amount in your hands, pat in gently and not too close to eyes,( makes them cloudy) allow to absorb for 10-20 min., then pat off excess with a soft cloth and proceed with your usual beauty routine.
It’s natural, healthy and gives you a youthful glow! As the saying goes, …. ”You will love the skin your in!”

I love this article about natural ways of moisturizing your skin with olive oil.

I am 51 years old and I still have very oily skin...the puddles of oil around my nose, mouth and chin even after an hour is huge. I normally have to blot these areas with a oil blotting tissue by mid-day. I was told years ago that I was blessed with oily skin AND it is proably the reason why I don't have too many visible wrinkles. The thought of applying olive oil to my skin prior to my make-up...even if I blot it off...just about scares me to think about the oil pit I would end up being by noon. I would do this at night...but probably never during the day.

Do you have any suggestions for those of us who have oily skin...even at our older age?

Amy you don't need Olive Oil externally, you're going to age beautifully. Be lavish with it internally though for it's wonderful health benefits.
Your doing exactly what you need to be doing.....keep it up! Your gorgeous.
Please visit often and thank you for your comment and question.
Always, Sandy
