Olive oil to tan?

Recommended Posts

I have used Olive Oil for years and I always get a deep dark tan that lasts for a long time. It is also good for your skin because it keeps it moist and protects against dry skin. I mix it with some water and shake it up. I tan for 1/2 hour on each side and then I am done. It is not as expensive as the other sun tan lotions on the market.

Have you seen someone who used to do that in the 1970's, 80's or 90's? Their skin is like leather. I wouldn't use olive oil to fry and I wouldn't use olive oil to tan.

Olive oil is extremely useful for all kinds of hair as well as skin treatments. Olives are one of the purest oil producing substances in the world. For most part, the oil produced by olives is extremely mild, pure and nutritious. The best part is that this oil is of such excellent quality and it also does not have any kind of bad fats or cholesterol. This enables it to be used for almost anything safely, right from cooking to all kinds of beauty and skin and hair maintenance treatments. There are many uses that olive oil can have for good skin. You can use it as a regular moisturizer. Instead of using any product that is available off the shelf and has been totally processed, you are better off using a natural moisturizing agent such as olive oil in order to moisturize your skin on a regular basis. This will keep your skin smooth and free of all sorts of problems. You can also add olive oil for all possible face packs and facial treatments. This will also have a positive effect in your skin. Olive oil is also considered to be especially useful in the treatment of enlarged skin pores. If you are troubled with this ailment too, you should apply warm olive oil to the skin pores. This will help to improve upon this condition as well.

If you are using chemical bleach to lighten the color of your skin or facial hair, then too you can use olive oil. Simply add a few drops to the bleach solution. This will help to prevent excessive skin damage which is common when you use chemical bleaching agents of any kind. You can also add a couple of drops of olive oil to any exfoliating agent. This will nourish the abraded skin very well and will also help to protect from any damage that the process of exfoliation may end up causing. You can protect not only your skin, but your hair as well. Olive oil is extremely high in nutritive value and you can use it to provide nourishment to your hair. It will deep condition your hair and will also strengthen it from the roots as well as the shafts. You can massage olive oil into your hair and scalp and leave it overnight for best results. You can simply wash your hair in the morning as usual. This will have really good results.

Hope this could have help you

Olive oil has a lot of great properties, I can't deny that.

 

But I have zero interest in literally frying myself, which is what would happen if I used it to "get a tan".

 

No thanks.

 

My mum did the baby oil/olive oil/coconut oil thing back in the Seventies (she's a very fair redhead, mind you!) but when I kept witching at her throughout the Eighties about staying OUT of the sun and that I thought pale was prettier, anyway, she quit...And her skin looks about a ZILLION times better than that of her sisters who kept doing it.

olive oil is actually good for the skin becuase it has a lot of vitamins in it. but to tan with i wouldnt recomend it unless you put a bit of iodine in it which helps pretect the skin from burn. i personally use Afrosheen. or *Oilsheen. and it has worked wonderfully for me. it doesnt burn you and it actually leave you dark.!! i love it. i swear by it. it doesnt harm your body any more than using any of these other tanning lotion. tanning lotions have oils in them as well. only difference is, they absorb into your skin deeper thus risking a deeper burn instead of just the outer layer.. some people are misinformed when it comes to this stuff.

Olive oil is great for your skin. I am a massage therapist I use either almond or olive oil. Please do me a favor and tell your friend to stop using Baby oil. It clogs up her pores, and the mineral oil in it isn't good for anything in the body. Her best bet would be to not use anything or use olive or almond oil if she doesn't want to spend the 10 on some sun tan oil. here are eight great natural oils that some have in their home and other's are way cheaper and you get more and they are good for your skin on top of that sun kissed glow we are always searching for as woman.

  1. Avocado OilUnrefined, cold-pressed avocado oil does wonders for your dry skin with its natural essential fatty acids, vitamins and lecithin.
  2. Coconut OilIf you have sensitive skin, coconut oil is a good optional as a natural tanning oil. Some oils despite being natural can cause skin irritation. Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids and also offers natural SPF protection of around SPF4 making it perfect for a natural tanning oil.
  3. Green Tea Extract or AloeOne of the most effective ways of preventing the effects of sunburn is by using ingredients rich in antioxidants and soothing compounds like green tea extract or aloe vera. These both soothe skin and help to counteract the effects of the sun on your skin. Green tea extract helps to neutralize UV radiation.   A mixture of different types of oils may also improve your skin's elasticity neutralize skin imbalances from oily to dry skin.
  4. Hazelnut OilNaturally rich in Vitamin E, Hazelnut oil is one of the most popular ingredients in natural tanning oils. It is also one of the most readily absorbed oils due to it's high fatty acid content.
  5. Olive Oil- Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, a naturally occurring antioxidant with soothing properties to not only moisturize the skin, but help to develop that golden tan and sunkissed look. Mix olive oil with a few drops of carrot juice if you are looking for a darker tan, and a few drops of iodine to help prevent skin from burning.
  6. Wheat-Germ Oil- Wheat-germ oil is wonderful for smoothing skin and provides a golden glow that looks natural. Wheatgerm is high in vitamins E, D and A. These vitamins all help to improve the elasticity of your skin and aid in protecting your skin against harmful effects of sun damage, like wrinkles, fine lines, and pigmentation.
  7. Sunflower Oil- Aside from being a great natural moisturizer (along with Safflower oil), Sunflower oil is also good for tanning. It ensures that the skin's natural elasticity is maintained moisture is retained. It also protects against fine lines and wrinkles.
  8. Sesame OilAside from being a great natural moisturizer (along with Safflower oil), Sunflower oil is also good for tanning. It ensures that the skin's natural elasticity is maintained moisture is retained. It also protects against fine lines and wrinkles.

A really nice recipe for tanning oil includes 80% coconut oil, 10% sunflower oil, 5% sesame oil and 5% olive oil. Mix these oils together and apply to skin before sun exposure for a dark tanning oil with and SPF rating of approximately SPF 4.

If you want to create an extra nourishing repairing oil, then add 10% rosehip oil and 3% carrot seed oil. To make a lotion, add 10% beeswax melted with the oil then add 20% aloe vera juice to this mix.

 

Here is why she shouldn't use baby oil it is extremely Harmful:

Baby oil is made of mineral oil. Mineral oil is something completely foreign to the human body. It is a synthetic oil which is a byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil. Wait, gasoline? crude oil? Why do we slather this stuff all over our children? Well, mostly because its cheap and abundant so manufacturers sell it to us and tell us its good for our skin. The honest truth is it is actually harmful to our health.

Mineral oil acts as a thin layer on the skin. It is difficult to absorb and clogs the pores, which slows the skin's ability to eliminate toxins. Our skin plays a large role in the body's detoxification through sweat. If pores are blocked, the toxins remain in the body for a longer period of time. This alone can be harmful. Once the oil is absorbed, it is broken down by the liver and passes through the intestinal tract. Once in the intestines, mineral oil will absorb all of the fat-soluble vitamins found there. So all those organic foods and vitamin supplements you spend all your money on will get robbed by mineral oil and your body never gets the benefits.

There are claims that mineral oil can cause damage to the lungs, nervous system, skin, and even causes premature aging. An unbiased study released by the Cancer Prevention Coalition in June 2002, contained the following: Cancer and health experts just concluded reviews that indicate mainstream cosmetics and personal hygiene products including lotions, soaps and shampoos, pose the highest risk exposures to the general public. This risk is higher than smoking.†It is clear that mineral oil and petrochemicals have no place in skin care products and should never be used on babies or adults.

The best thing to remember when applying things to your skin....it is your bodies largest organ. If it isn't healthy it is a sign something in your diet, way of life, skin applicants, stress needs to change. It can also be more sever so if you do change and it doesn't clear up I suggest seeing your dermatologist. FYI

Thanks for taking the time.

Your nuts olive oil is great for your skin....look up before you speak. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, a naturally occurring antioxidant with soothing properties to not only moisturize the skin, but help to develop that golden tan and sunkissed look. Mix olive oil with a few drops of carrot juice if you are looking for a darker tan, and a few drops of iodine to help prevent skin from burning.

I actually HAVE heard of olive oil for tanning, and I've been doing some research into it, as I am pasty as fuk, I have read nothing but positive reviews on using olive oil, as long as you:

 - use it while wearing sunscreen as well ( the two mix well)

 - Only staying in the sun for a maximum of 30 minutes

 - Do it every second day

 

Hope this helped! icon_cool.gif

all olive oil will do is fry your skin. use a moisturizing sunscreen.
So true. One only has to look at before pics of models and Hollywood starlets of the 1950's and 1960's who used oils (baby oil, olive oil, vegetable oil, Crisco - (lard)) when sun tanning / bathing, and look at the after pics 10 - 20 yrs. later, they all aged very horribly.

What is the carrot tannig oil? I've never heard about it, about olive oil for tan - also. :) It sounds bit nonsense. Also, I heard young girls talking about hair spray for tanning. Before it, they spray their body with it and than go lying in the sun. Sounds... sadno.gif

I am taking a stab in the dark about the carrot tanning. back in the 60's people used to mix iodine with baby oil and fry their body. even as a dumb teen i thought that was awful! this is just a guess because they looked like their skin was orange.
