Olive oil is rich nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins that are great for the body, whether you choose to eat it, or use it on your skin. Vitamins A and E, as well as some polyphenols, are among the natural antioxidants found in olive oil and are known for their ability to combat free radicals, contributing to cell repair.
