"Among the natural antioxidants to be found in olive oil, there are A and E vitamins, as well as some polyphenols, well known for their ability to postpone aging. By taking out free radicals, freed in the body, these special agents are guaranteed to prolong your life, as they contribute to cell repair. The same thing is valid when you apply olive oil on your skin. As you may well know, our skin is many times exposed to pollution and other factors that cause it to grow older. By caring for skin with olive oil, you will limit the actions of these factors, and enjoy a beautiful skin for a long time."
Quoted from Natural-Remedies-for-Skin-Care.com:
"The fat composition of olive oil is very similar to the fat composition of human skin, so it is absorbed quickly and helps the skin moisture content. Particularly good for dry skin, even those with oily skin can use it in moderation to balance excess sebum production. Very few people have an allergy to topically applied olive oil.
The antioxidants work with the skin like they do in the body, protecting the skin from free radicals in the environment."
