“To make a difference in someone’s life, you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful, or perfect. You just have to care.” — Mandy Hale

Helping others has no real requirement.

To make a difference has no requirement other than the desire to help others. This comes from the feeling of caring or others well-being, other derived from empathy and sympathy. Perfection does not exist, beauty is a thing of personal preference, to be rich does not create kindness, and being intelligent doesn’t create compassion. If you care then do. You will literally make the world of difference to someone.

If there is any oil that is packed with the goodness of fat and other antioxidants, it is none other than olive oil. This oil has been used by masseuses for centuries due to its capability to heal and soften the skin like no other oil. The oil is rich in vitamin E and other fatty acids that moisturize that skin and improve the blood flow. Using it lukewarm on the skin can increase its efficiency to benefit the skin and relax the body and mind.

This oil makes a perfect treat when it comes to full-body massage. What can this oil do that makes it more preferable? If you are looking for an answer, keep reading until the end because I am about to reveal the 6 hidden benefits of Olive oil massage:

Improves Blood Circulation

The unique characteristic of this oil is that it is warm in nature yet soothing to the body and mind. The massage of this oil on the body significantly improves the blood circulation while relaxing the muscles and nerves down. Hence, it makes a great massage for all those who are stressed out and in need of some relaxing therapy. It leaves you feeling a rush of energy inside you due to all the nutrients that it provides the body.

No More Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Using high-end anti-aging products is not always on your budget and convenience. In such circumstances, all you need is some extra virgin olive at your home. Applying the oil after microwaving it for 15 seconds can help rejuvenate the skin and reduce the wrinkles and fine lines under the eyes and elsewhere. Just massage your face before going to bed with this oil and press it into your skin gently. Leave it on and see the magic happen the next day. However, if your skin is oily and prone to breakouts, this may not be your best bet.

Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are usually considered as an unsolvable problem which is not completely true. Olive oil can actually bring a great change in the appearance of the stretch marks if you massage it regularly. All you need is some warm oil to massage the affected areas. The results may not be quick but they surely appear if you massage the marks consistently.

Strengthens Nails

If you feel like your nails are going brittle, you must not worry and get yourself some olive oil. Massaging the nails with it does not only help make the nail stronger but also softens the hands and cuticles. Therefore, you can both massage your nails and hands, and wear gloves before you go to bed for best results or just add the oil to your manicure routine.

Natural and Intense Moisturizer for the Skin

Vitamin E and K present in the oil along with fatty acids moisturize the skin naturally and nourish better than any skincare product. The hardened skin can easily be softened by using this oil. Plus, if your scalp feels dry, warm olive oil massage can help remove the dryness and leave your hair all nourished and healthy. Using olive oil in winters is the best idea for locking intense moisture into the skin and hair.

So, what are you waiting for? Get an appointment with a masseuse and relax in a massage chair while he/she slathers your skin with the goodness of olive oil.
