Olive oil is a natural skin softener and moisturizer. Beyond that, one of the surprising olive oil benefits is that is acts as a sealant. What this means is olive not only moisturizes and softens, but it helps the skin retain moisture as well. Olive oil benefits the healing of minor scrapes, cuts, and wounds. The skin-softening properties of the oil helps to reduce scar formation and speeds up the fading of scars. The best part is that olive oil does not clog pores so it will not cause a pimple to form.

The health benefits of lavender oil for the skin can be attributed to its antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is used to treat various skin disorders such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions.
