Fall Skin Solution Fall is in full swing, and like most looking for smart and natural ways of taking care of one's skin is prevalent during the cooler months as skin dryness can become an issue. Often we look to science or trends to determine how to protect and care for our skin. But perhaps it is better to look back, to the past.  For centuries Olive Oil was used as a skin care aid, beauty product and all around solution for external beauty routines. Did you know the following were once daily uses for olive oil in men and women's skin care regimes: •

drops of oil added to the bath for deep moisturizing

added to hair conditioning routines for protection from split ends as well as adding desired sheen

applied directly to skin for prevention of dry skin

Fortunately there is one company interesting in following these traditions by basing their entire skin, bath and beauty line of products in 100% virgin olive oil. Virgin olive oil is among the purist because of the refining process.  By providing natural ingredients like Vitamin A and E found in olive oil, skin gets the nutrients it needs and excellent skin care is assured. Olivella® is the company and you can discover their entire line of products by visiting their online store at  Start improving your skin today.
