Bizarre Home Cures that Work ~ Olive Oil


Home cure: Olive oil

Use it for: Eczema
Soothe flareups by applying olive oil directly to the irritated area, says Christopher Dannaker, MD, assistant professor of dermatology at the University of California San Francisco. Packed with antioxidants that can reduce the inflammation associated with eczema, olive oil is the basis for many moisturizers; when used alone, it lacks chemical irritants you may find in store-bought creams. As a bonus, olive oil's antioxidants help prevent and repair damage that can lead to wrinkles and brown spots.
Rub 1 teaspoon per square inch of skin, which creates a seal that prevents skin from drying out. For serious cases, cover oil-slathered skin with plastic wrap overnight to lock moisture in.

  1. I love Olive Oil. I use it sometimes after a shower if I have really dry skin, I also love to use coconut oil. I use coconut oil on a more regular basis because I like the scent better. I haven't bought body lotion in several months, because I don't use it anymore! Great post!
