    Default Olive oil good for skin

    Olive oil secret to Loren beauty
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4788015.stm

    Italian actress Sophia Loren has beaten much younger contenders to be voted the world's most naturally beautiful person at the age of 71 in an online poll.

    The Oscar-winning star says her secret is down to love of life and spaghetti.

    But another key to maintaining her youthful looks is one known to the ancient Romans - Loren takes "the odd bath in virgin olive oil".

    The actress recently became the oldest woman to pose for the celebrated Pirelli calendar.

    Even the Archbishop of Genoa once said that although the Vatican opposed human cloning, "an exception might be made in the case of Sophia Loren".

    The online poll for the Dare to Be Bare Awards asked 1,578 people to rate the world's most naturally beautiful celebrities who do not conform to stereotypes.

    Second place went to film star George Clooney, followed by Welsh opera-turned-pop singer Charlotte Church.

    The rest in the top 10 are: Catherine Zeta Jones, Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jack Black, Cameron Diaz and Gail Porter.

    Apparently. I know olive oil is commonly used in Europe in soap etc. but bathing in it? But it works for her.

    How the hell do you use olive oil as soap? it's not exactly foamy, and isnt soap used to get RID of dirt and oil?

    I'd think olive oil would break me out if slathered it on. I know people who use Vaseline on their face and it looks great, but I'd be scared.

    I use an oil based cleanser, and my skin is better than it has ever been. It's strange, but it cleans far better than a traditional cleanse/tone/exfoliate system, and you only need one product.

    They make a soap out of the olive oil. It is very mild moisturizing soap.

    Worked with an old guy who thought Loren was the hottest woman around. In her day, she was gorgeous. Still well preserved. Curious about the Pirelli photos.

    nah not really; it works great too! but you gotta rinse/wash your hair well but not too hard b/c that defeats the purpose; and it might take a couple days to come all the way out so do it on a weekend or something or just once a month if you don't have a fried head of hair like me and don't need it that often.

    How hard is it to rinse out? I put it on my horses' manes to keep them shiny.

    Afraid that it will make my hair look greasy.
