How I use the Indus Valley Extra Virgin Olive oil
I use this as an after bath body moisturizer at night, or on days when I am mostly at home. Oil can stain clothes, So, I don’t use it when I have to go out.
After bath, I apply the oil all over the body, while the skin is still moist so that it locks the moisture and allow it to absorb for 3-4 mins before wearing clothes.
Olive oil is an amazing natural moisturizer, and this one being cold pressed, is very safe for use. I am using it for the last couple of weeks, and it has already reduced dry patches on my back, elbows and knees. Also, my skin looks nourished and has a natural glow now ( I was not using any moisturizer for almost two months before starting with this oil, so my skin was very dry and flaky). I also mix it with almond, coconut and argan oil for added benifits.
Also, I massage it to my hair and scalp twice a month, and wrap hot towel for 15-20 mins and then wash hair with shampoo. This gives a good shine to the hair.
The oil is very pocket friendly, when you compare it to other creams and lotions, and it lasts much longer than any of other expensive products. Combined with the fact that, this is all natural with least or no chemicals, I would say Indus Valley olive oil, or olive oil in general is the best alternative to any other moisturizers available in market.
