Why So Many Celebrities Use Olive Oil Instead of Pricey Beauty Products

Sophia Loren who has aged very gracefully and was voted the world’s most naturally beautiful person at the age of 71, swears by her virgin olive oil baths. In fact, the Oscar-winning actress isn’t the only one who uses this popular salad dressing as her skincare secret weapon. Emma Stone, Julia Roberts, Miranda Kerr, and many other celebrities use this affordable and easily available cooking ingredient to maintain their red-carpet-ready looks.

We at Bright Side were impressed by the fact that so many superstars, who can afford the most expensive skincare, opt for olive oil. So we searched the internet to find out what beauty benefits this kitchen essential has to offer. And there’s a bonus for you to check out at the end of the article.

Olive oil can easily replace many expensive body butters and creams. Kylie Jenner also confesses she’s a fan of olive oil and loves to use it to moisturize her skin after a shower. Jenner says her shower routine includes shampooing and conditioning her hair, exfoliating her body with a loofah sponge, and then ’drenching’ her body with organic oils, like olive oil.

When the skin on your feet becomes thick and overly dry, it can result in cracked heels that can be not only embarrassing but painful too. Using olive oil to moisturize your feet can help you keep cracked heels at bay and won’t let it ruin sandal season for you. Julia Roberts uses olive oil not only for her nails, but for her feet too. The actress likes to rub in some extra-virgin olive oil, pull on a pair of socks, and leave it on all night.

While olive oil can be used to moisturize your skin, it can also serve as exfoliator, removing dead skin cells and leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated. To make an olive oil body scrub, mix 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with 2 tablespoons of honey and add ½ cup of sugar. If you prefer a more delicate scrub, use less sugar. Rubbing this mixture into your skin for approximately 60 seconds will gently exfoliate it, making your skin glowy and smooth.

North West Wore Red Lipstick – Red Lipstick

A few days have passed since the sensory overload that was the Kardashian/Jenner/West Christmas Eve party this year. And now that the fake snow has settled and the Internet has moved on from the man-made sledding mountain, Khloe and Kylie’s glam mommy-daughter matching outfits, and the decked out dinner venue that rivaled Whoville, they’ve now turned their focus to something else: North’s red lipstick.

Kim shared a few photo series via Twitter, recapping the fun they had at their celeb-packed holiday party (did I mentioned John Legend was the entertainment for the night?), and one of which features Kim and her hubs and kiddos. In what I’ll refer to as the unofficial 2018 West holiday card, 5-year-old North is wearing all black with a pop of red on her lips. See for yourself:

One Twitter user tweeted that the look was iconic, to which Kim responded explaining that the shade is from an upcoming lipstick launch from her brand, KKW Beauty.

North and that red lip is so iconic!

It just might be a new Classic Red Lip I have launch VERY soon 💋 https://t.co/159rpXMUxp

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian)

She was quick to follow up that North picked it out to wear for herself, but of course, the Internet was quick to respond with *opinions* about North wearing lipstick in general.

She picked it though! It’s a special occasion! https://t.co/dGIEjr7yAN

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian)

Some see no harm in wearing lipstick because they too did the same thing as kids, while others argue she’s too young or that she shouldn’t be helping Kim sell her products.

Kim’s mentioned many times before how much North loves to play with makeup and how she’s a huge fan of YouTuber James Charles. So, you know, to those who argue that Kim makes North play with makeup, clearly that’s not the case here.

Kim has yet to respond to the haters, but, in the end, she and Kanye know what’s best for their kids. All the outside commentary is just noise.
