Extra virgin olive oil, healthy inside and outside
It’s the star of the Mediterranean diet, and you probably already know how healthy it is as a culinary ingredient. But this liquid gold is also a valuable ally for your skin. Olive oil therapy techniques, such as relaxing massages, face masks and body treatments, moisturise and protect the skin. The main difference between olive oil and other oils is its high concentration of antioxidants, which enhances its relaxing effect and improves skin elasticity.You can enjoy this therapy with extra virgin olive oil in many spas and wellness centres in Spain. There are more to choose from in the main olive-growing areas, like Andalusia, Castilla-La Mancha and Cataluña. For example, in Jaén (Andalusia) you can complete the experience with visits to almazaras (the mills where oil is pressed from the olive), tastings and workshops.
