Beauty Products in Your Kitchen

Olive Oil is more than an ingredient to make your food taste great or Popeye's beloved girlfriend. It's a great beauty find, and it probably works better than some of the beauty products you'll find at Sephora. Over the past month TBC has practically become enamored with the stuff because it actually works.

1. Promotes Eyelash Growth
We've gone through plenty of mascara bottles trying to get the full lashes that few were naturally born with; only to see them fall out or get damaged in the process. After perusing countless articles and watching tempting Latisse commercials (with frightening side effects) the following video appeared; which suggested coating your lashes with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Castor Oil at night (some people just use Olive Oil instead of mixing it). Give it some time and you'll actually start to feel a difference in the texture, and eventually length.

2. Include it In Your Skin Care Regimen
Sometimes it's hard to find a balance between dry and oily skin especially when the weather changes. Olive Oil is great for your skin because it has Vitamin E, if you look at some of your skin care products you'll actually Olive Oil is an ingredient. Try dabbing it on dry areas or putting a thin layer on at night. We just wouldn't suggest drenching your face with it.

3. Manage Your Tresses
Olive oil can also be used as a conditioner to promote hair growth. Try putting it on the ends of your hair to prevent split ends.

Other uses include: shaving, removing make up, and moisturizing lips.

If you have any Olive Oil secrets please share and let us know if any of the above works for you too!
