Many people complement us on our skin. They use words like “beautiful Mediterranean complexion,” or “perfectly smooth,” and mostly they just can’t believe how “old” we are! :)
What’s our secret?
Olive oil, of course! And not just any. It has to be high quality with all those phenomenal polyphenals that fight oxidative stress in your cells! We were lucky to be raised with olive oil from Puglia, whose native varietals contain some of the highest quality and quantity of polyphenals in the world.
Extra virgin olive oil, it turns out, is not just good for your insides, but for your outsides too. The ancients knew this. In Roman times, extra virgin olive oil was a highly coveted beauty treatment. The best part is that it still works!
Here is our recipe for a delicious, home-made extra virgin olive oil sugar scrub for your face and body. It works wonders. The EVOO protects and moisturizes the skin, while the lemon acts as a non-abrasive astringent.
Juice from 1/2 fresh organic lemon
1/2 cup of organic granulated sugar
1 tbsp of Le Sorelle’s Adamo extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp of organic honey
1 glass jar with a lid
