Over the last decade, everyone has been harping on the beauty benefits of olive oil, but the truth is this kitchen

staple has been used on the body since ancient times (thank you, Cleopatra). Naturally, olive oil is

packed with anti-aging antioxidants and hydrating squalene, making it superb for hair, skin, and nails.

Just like coconut oil, it's an essential in any DIY beauty maven's kit.

1. Preshampoo Hair Treatment
Olive oil has been used as a hair treatment since ancient Egyptian times. First, warm the olive oil in the microwave or in hot water. Then apply it generously to the ends of hair and scalp. Leave it in for up to 10 to 20 minutes, and then shampoo it out.

2. Lip Scrub
Combine coarse sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil for a chapped-lip fix. You can also add a splash of lemon juice for added flavor and acidic exfoliating properties. This scrub is good enough to eat (literally). Plus, you can expand the recipe for your whole body.

3. Eye-Makeup Remover
We know what you're thinking—slathering olive oil all over your face would actually cause bigger problems and clog pores. But in actuality, the oil grabs onto other oil-based products (think: Like attracts like), making it a great precleansing step to remove stubborn eye makeup. Follow it up with warm water and a pH-balanced face wash.

4. Ear-Wax Remedy
If you often have ear-wax buildup, turn to olive oil to flush out the clog. For three or four nights, put a few drops in the ears before bed to help loosen excess wax.

5. Shine Serum
There's no need to buy a separate hair product to impart shine on second-day strands. Just rub a few drops of olive oil on flyaway ends after styling for an extra-glossy finish.

6. Shaving Cream
Run out of shaving cream? Head to the kitchen and slather legs with olive oil before applying the blade. You'll ward off razor burn and bumps with the help of this natural lubricant.

7. Antibacterial Balm
If you're taking an all-natural approach to medicine, you can whip up this DIY recipe for a Neosporin knockoff. It includes antibacterial olive oil along with lavender, calendula, and tea tree oil to ward off germs and scarring.

8. Cuticle Conditioner
Want to grow longer, stronger nails? Use olive oil as your cuticle softener. Chef Giada De Laurentiis applies the oil to her hands as she cooks, and you can easily keep a little by the sink for post-sanitizing moisture.

9. Eczema Remedy
The best and most widespread use for olive oil is as an intense moisturizer. This product works great as an allover treatment for extra-dry skin. Since it's natural, it's the ideal pick for eczema and more.

10. Diaper-Rash Treatment
There are very few products that are safe for both babies and adults. Olive oil is perfect for the sensitive skin on a baby's bottom and as a moisturizing remedy for cradle cap too.

11. Cracked-Heel Repair
Split, rough heels need moisture to heal. After exfoliating with a pumice stone, apply olive oil to feet. Put on socks to lock in the hydrating treatment as you sleep.

12. Makeup-Brush Cleaner
Cleaning your makeup brushes should be a monthly ritual. You can use a DIY cleanser that's two parts antibacterial soap and one part olive oil.

                     10 Ways to Eat Your Sunscreen

                                                                 Let food be your medicine when it comes to protecting your skin against the sun's harmful rays.

1 - Tea, both green and black, contains catechins, which help prevent and repair skin damage, help reduce inflammation, and protect against UV-induced skin cancers. 
 Tea also contains tannic acid and theobromine, which, applied topically, can soothe sunburn and repair damage.  
Eat this: Purée matcha green tea powder with grated ginger, honey, and coconut milk, then freeze in an ice cream maker; steep lapsang souchong tea in hot water to make a  strong, smoky stock to use for cooking rice; combine cooled green tea with grapefruit juice concentrate, pomegranate juice, and sparkling water.
[Tea, both green and black, contains catechins, which help prevent and repair skin damage, help reduce inflammation, and protect against UV-induced skin cancers.]

2 - Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, a powerful skin-protective antioxidant that reduces sun damage, wrinkles, and dry skin.  In combination with beta-carotene and vitamin E, it can protect against skin cancer and reduce sunburns. Other good sources of vitamin C include broccoli, peppers, grapefruit, oranges, and kiwi.  
Eat this: Drizzle fresh strawberries with balsamic vinegar, sprinkle with minced basil, and top with a dollop of vanilla yogurt; dip strawberries in extra-dark chocolate; add sliced strawberries to a salad of arugula, spinach, and pine nuts.
[Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, a powerful skin-protective antioxidant that reduces sun damage, wrinkles, and dry skin.]

3 - Avocados are rich in fats that protect the skin cells from UV damage and inflammation, repair DNA, and enhance availability of sun-protective nutrients from other fruits and vegetables.  
Eat this: Add avocados to smoothies; purée avocados with lemon juice and olive oil for a healthy salad dressing; combine avocado chunks with corn kernels, diced peppers, onions, and lime juice for an easy salsa.
[Avocados are rich in fats that protect the skin cells from UV damage and inflammation, repair DNA, and enhance availability of sun-protective nutrients from other fruits and vegetables.]

4- Olive oil contains oleuropein, the compound that gives extra-virgin olive oil its pungent taste. It also protects against UV-induced wrinkling, skin damage, cancer, and tumor growth. Whole olives are also rich in oleuropein. 
Eat this: Combine olive oil and rosemary in a glass jar and let steep for a fragrant, herb-scented oil; mix olive oil with softened pasture butter and minced chives for a smooth, buttery spread.

6 - Cacao nibs are exceptionally rich in flavanols, antioxidants that protect skin from sun damage, increase blood circulation to the skin, improve hydration, and reduce signs of aging.  Commercial processing dramatically reduces levels of antioxidants, so unprocessed chocolate is best. 
Eat this: Grind cacao nibs in a coffee grinder and add to ground coffee beans before brewing; stir cacao nibs and fresh raspberries into vanilla Greek yogurt; combine cacao nibs, whole oats, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and coconut oil, and bake until crunchy for granola.
[Cacao nibs are exceptionally rich in flavanols, antioxidants that protect skin from sun damage, increase blood circulation to the skin, improve hydration, and reduce signs of aging.]

7 - Carrots are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that can protect skin cells from UV damage and improve the health and appearance of skin. Sweet potatoes, winter squash, mango, and dark leafy greens are other good sources.  
Eat this: Use a vegetable peeler to make long ribbons from carrots, then toss with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pistachios; stem carrots and purée with cooked white beans and garlic for an easy dip; grate carrots and add to pancake batter, along with cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg.
[Carrots are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that can protect skin cells from UV damage and improve the health and appearance of skin.]

8 - Tempeh contains isoflavones that can reduce inflammation, help inhibit skin cancer, and reduce sun damage and signs of skin aging.

[Tempeh contains isoflavones that can reduce inflammation, help inhibit skin cancer, and reduce sun damage and signs of skin aging.]

9 - Broccoli is high in sulforaphane, a class of compounds found in cruciferous vegetables that were found in a petri dish study to prevent oxidative damage to the skin from sun exposure.   Other sources include cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, radishes, and arugula. 
Eat this: Combine finely chopped broccoli with green onions, almonds, and a honey vinaigrette for a summery slaw; serve steamed and chilled broccoli spears with red pepper hummus for dipping; toss broccoli florets with olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes, and roast until tender.
[Broccoli is high in sulforaphane, a class of compounds found in cruciferous vegetables that were found in a petri dish study to prevent oxidative damage to the skin from sun exposure.]

10 - Red grapes are rich in resveratrol, a type of polyphenol antioxidant that reduces inflammation and protects against skin cancer from UV exposure. Other sources of resveratrol are red wine, cranberries, and peanuts.  
Eat this: Freeze red grape juice in ice cube trays, then add to glasses of sparkling water for a refreshing summer beverage; braise whole red grapes, sliced fennel, and Brussels sprouts in olive oil until tender; add halved red grapes to a salad of endive, blue cheese, and toasted walnuts.

MEDITERRANEAN DIET

The Mediterranean diet incorporates olive oil in almost everything. It also suggests a diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. The health benefits of following a Mediterranean diet, backed by numerous studies, include prevention of metabolic syndrome and lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

OXIDATIVE STRESS

Exposure to air pollution and cigarette smoke as well as consumption of fried foods or alcohol can cause free radicals to form in the body. Vitamin E, found in extra virgin olive oil, is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from the damage caused by free radicals, called oxidative stress. Over time, oxidative stress can lead to cancer. Extra virgin olive oil also contains polyphenols, another type of antioxidant, which also fight oxidative stress throughout your body.

How to tell if your oil has a lot of antioxidants?

Extra virgin olive oil tastes spicy; peppery or pungent and bitter. Those are the antioxidants your tasting (the polyphenols and tocopherols) and they are considered positive characteristics, particularly when it is balanced with our olivy flavor.
