Did you know that oils and vinegars can be used for much more than food? Since “dry skin” weather is upon us here in Colorado, the staff at The Olive Tap thought it would be good to share our “secrets” when it comes to keeping our skin vibrant and healthy during the fall and winter months. No one likes dry, itchy, flaky skin. Olive oil has been used for centuries as a chief component of good skin care. Are your hands cracked and dry? Are your heels so dry that it’s painful to walk around the house without shoes and socks?
Mix the following:
1 Cup Warm Water
1/4 Cup Olive Tap’s Sorrento Orange Olive Oil
1/8 Cup Epsom Salt
1/8 Cup Sugar
Combine ingredients and stir until the ingredients are well blended. Liberally rub on hands and/or feet. Let sit for about fifteen minutes or until skin feels moisturized. Rinse well. Repeat as necessary. Will leave hands and feet smelling nice and more importantly, feeling refreshed and renewed.
