Burns Using Olive Oil for skin
Olive oil has always been regarded as one of the oldest and most effective therapies for damaged skin.
Throughout the centuries from Ancient Greek medicine to cutting edge modern day, scientific trials, the efficacy of olive oil has stood undoubtedly as one of the most natural, safe and healing remedies for skin, available to us all.
Olive oil contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory (which also reduces pain), antibacterial, hypoallergenic, antifungal and antiviral properties, a high concentration of Vitamin E, D and K and beta-carotenes, all of these are needed to repair skin damaged by exposure to burns, which can be caused by heat, sunshine, corrosive elements, electricity or friction.
Most notable are the high concentrations of polyphenols, these are the real good guys, the heavy duty anti-oxidants that zip around mopping up all the damage to the skin that has been exposed to the burn.
Olive oil has been used by peoples of the Mediterranean for hundreds of years. In texts from Ancient Greek medicine, Hippocrates advocated its use to soothe the skin, particularly those affected by wounds and burns.
Modern day research backs this up, studies carried out at the Tel Aviv University in Israel and the Rockstock University in Germany in 2010 carried out tests, ascertaining that indeed the polyphenols (anti-oxidants) repair and neutralise the damage (most effectively), caused by free radicals that are present after skin has been adversely affected, particularly by the sun.
Pharmaceutical companies and the cosmetic industry package up tocopherols (other antioxidants) to repair and regenerate skin that has been damaged, and routinely sell them as "miracle" creams .....all you need to do to repair and renew, is to reach for the olive oil !
