I have a cousin in her 40s who has amazing skin. Her secret? Extra-virgin olive oil after she showers.

I remember she told me she doesn’t have stretch marks after five kids, and she thinks it’s because of it, too. Since then my bathroom drawer always has a bottle of extra-virgin olive oil.

When I got pregnant with my first son, I was scared I would get stretch marks since such was reportedly genetic and I actually got some deep ones on my thighs because of puberty. I never really fluctuated in weight so the fact that I have those, I was quite certain that as soon as I gave birth, my tummy would be striped.

In fact I was already psyching up myself for these “battle scars” so I wouldn’t be very disappointed after. But I did try to prevent it with Clarins oil, Lirac cream and, yes, olive oil. Result? Not a single line after three pregnancies.

Olive oil is a vitamin E-rich beauty powerhouse that helps skin look younger, hypo-allergenic and helps calm the skin. It can be a part of your daily routine.

For dry spots, use olive oil on a cotton ball and dab directly on the skin. I have used it on my son when he got irritating sunspots from a beach trip.

Olive oil has the same healthy fats as avocado, so it pumps the skin with vitamin E and vitamin A.
