Here are 5 unexpected beauty uses of olive oil:

1. Clean your makeup bushes– Soap alone can leave your makeup brushes with a murky residue. Try mixing a few drops of olive oil with the soap when washing your brushes. Swirl the brushes around and watch the oil slide the old makeup off.

2. Cuticle repair– Apply at least 2-3 drops of olive oil on your cuticles every night. This will help moisturise your cuticles and strengthen your nails.
