Skin Disorders

Even the most minor skin conditions can affect us deeply because our skin is one of the first things people see. The term "beauty is only skin deep" may be true, but it is also true that skin problems can run much deeper than our skin. Self-esteem can suffer and therefore our social interactions suffer, too. Our skin does not make us who we are, but it does contain who we are. When that container is out of sorts, our inner selves suffer as well.

Olive oil is not only good for your body, it's also great for your skin. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants like vitamin E. Since ancient times, people have been rubbing olive oil on their skin to prevent wrinkles and counterract dry skin. There is some Japanese research that suggests applying olive oil to the skin can even prevent skin cancer. Consuming olive oil also works from the inside out to prevent aging and skin cancer by inhibiting oxidative stress on the skin.
