2 – Top Anti Aging Skin Care: Olive Oil
Olive oil is definitely a recurrent protagonist of our articles, and that has a very good reason behind it! Its properties have been used for centuries, even in the old Greek and Roman societies. Not only for its beauty properties but also for health and culinary reasons. Similar to Argan, Olive oil also contains vitamins A and E which have anti oxidant and protective properties. It also contains other minerals that help your skin to fight off free radicals.
Olive oil made it to the top anti aging skin care because, among many other properties, it boosts the production of collagen. Collagen is what provides your skin with the necessary boost to look young and fresh, apart from its elasticity. However, not everything is a result of applying it topically on your skin. Olive oil also has wonderful properties when taken internally. It can protect you from anything age related, including diseases like osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s among others.
Many are the studies that praise its benefits, but specifically, the one published in 2012 in PLoS One confirms that its content of monounsaturated fatty acids can help with many aspects. Such as reducing insulin resistance, and even reduce processes related to inflammations. This means that it can protect the skin against aging and damage from the sun.
