ou may use olive oil when cooking your favorite Italian dish, but did you know that olive oil moisture is also excellent for the skin?
The truth is, while other products may contain chemicals that cause more harm than good, olive oil is a safe and natural way to lock in moisture and keep your skin healthy.
Several Perricone products incorporate olive oil polyphenols to help protect and nourish skin.
Brief Overview on the Benefits of Olive Oil Moisture
Olive oil is excellent for the skin because it is rich in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant. Antioxidants work to protect the skin at the cellular level from damaging free radicals that can cause numerous health issues that range from wrinkles to diseases.
Some factors that cause free radical damage include:
- Air pollution
- Cigarette smoke
Antioxidants are important because they battle both the internal forces, such as stress, and external forces, such as sunlight, that cause free radical damage.
By preventing the free radicals from reaching the cell membrane, antioxidants can stop or even reverse cell membrane damage and sub-clinical inflammation, including the microscopic scarring that form wrinkles. Olive oil polyphenols are an especially strong type of natural antioxidant.
