Make sure you always (and we mean always) remove your makeup before hitting the sheets. The skin needs to breathe overnight. And makeup prevents that, as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and/or blackheads.
Limit your exposure to the sun during the middle of the day (10:00 AM - 2:00 PM) when rays are strongest. If you must be in the sun for extended periods, be sure to wear protection like a wide-brimmed hat. Cover exposed skin or wear sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher.
Exercise regularly. Running, jogging and yoga will give your body the necessary blood circulation, and also accelerate the cleansing process of your entire body. You will notice a glow on your face after working out. Racing against time? Just take a brisk walk around the block.
Try to sleep at least 8 hours every night. If you don’t get enough shut-eye, your skin gets tired
just like you - it sags and you get bags. So don’t risk it.
Hydrate yourself. Drink lots of water daily, at least 8 glasses if not more. Also, eats fruits and vegetables that have a high water content such as watermelon, cucumber, orange, strawberry, grapefruit and cantaloupe.
Hot baths and showers can strip your skin of oils and cause dryness and irritation. Stick to warm, not hot, baths and showers and limit how long you soak. Chemicals like chlorine found in pools and hot tubs can irritate your skin. Be sure to shower after swimming and soap off with a gentle cleanser to remove harsh chemicals.
It can be tempting to pick at acne or scars but do not rub or touch your skin lesions. In fact, avoid touching your face unless you’ve washed your hands first, as oil and germs from your hands can contribute to breakouts.

Biotech Dead Sea Minerals Expert Says Natural Ingredients Were Key to Curing Her Daughter’s Dermatitis
What made a mom and engineer like Milana become a natural skincare formulator?
“After trying dozens of naturally-made & chemically-made products without any success, my maternal instincts pushed me through researching endless techniques & materials. Ultimately, the cure for my daugher came from powerful natural ingredients - oils and minerals that also beautify normal, aging skin,” says Milana. And that’s how the Olive Magic™ Skin Care line was created.
There’s this idea that man-made ingredients are more powerful. But when my child, Sarit, was suffering from atopic dermatitis, I saw first hand that it’s just not true.
I’d been a biotech engineer and senior formulator in the global pharmaceutical and dermatological industry. From the lab, I knew that any active pharmaceutical ingredient would have side effects. That worried me.
And yet, the natural products I’d tried weren’t effective. Nothing I could purchase soothed her hypersensitive skin.
That’s when I stopped thinking only as a mother, and started thinking as a bioengineer. When I tried my own complex of natural ingredients, I saw an immediate effect. The redness and swelling faded away. As a professional, what I saw took me by surprise.
In Israel, where I live, we have some of the best biotech in the world. But nature is still ahead of our scientific knowledge. Plants and minerals contain sophisticated compounds that we just can’t yet reproduce.
From that first success, I knew that I could use my R&D knowledge to make better natural skincare - to make products that harness the power of natural ingredients with high-impact effects. It started with my very first custom cream… and the rest is history.
Introducing Olive Magic™, Milana’s Custom Line of Natural Skincare with Visible Results on the First Application
Formulated with Dead Sea Minerals and Botanical Oils
Why Bioactive Natural Ingredients Can Outperform Chemical Cosmeceuticals
The Story Behind OliveMagic™
When I saw my first formula work on Sarit’s dermatitis, I knew I couldn’t stop there. I wanted to create products I’d feel confident using to protect my skin from aging. But there were no chemical-free products on the market that showed visible results after just one application.
With most natural skincare, women can’t see the effects, and so they turn back to pharmaceutical-made skincare. The truth is that despite big promises, most chemical ingredients are no more effective than a placebo.
Many people are unaware of the natural bioactives that can transform skin, without the harm of chemical ingredients used in standard cosmetics. Plants manufacture these phytochemicals for protection from the sun, to renew cells and delay aging. When we extract these sophisticated compounds - including polyphenols and other active antioxidants - we can use them in skincare with powerful results.
I left my job as a biotechnology engineer to create an ideal natural skincare line. Everything I know from 14 years in product development, I’m applying to botanical and mineral ingredients.
OliveMagic™ products apply science and innovation to preserve and deliver natural bioactive compounds. Every formulation undergoes rigorous testing, to prove perfect stability and visible results. We source our materials carefully, choosing highly advanced blends of botanical oils, herbs, minerals and trace elements from the Dead Sea. Our ingredients comply to rigorous standards and we only package our products in glass containers.
I truly believe that nature is the best inventor. We only need to harness nature’s power for beautiful, youthful skin. Just ask the women who immediately notice a difference using OliveMagic
OliveMagic™ Bioactive Ingredients
Natural is always safest, but not all natural ingredients are equal. We choose botanicals from the best genetic strains, grown in the most ideal environments. Then we use advanced technology to extract, preserve and blend the ingredients for optimum results.
Unique blend of Israeli olive oils
Olive oil is rich in skin-beautifying nutrients and antioxidants, including vitamin E & A, fatty acids, and minerals. It has a high concentration of polyphenols and squalene, both of which reduce inflammation associated with aging. Penetrating deep into the skin, olive oil moisturizes, softens and improves elasticity. It also protects the skin from environmental damage. Each olive oil we use in our blends is extracted, treated and preserved to enhance the oil’s properties.
Israeli pomegranate seed oil
This precious oil stimulates “keratinocytes”, major cells found in the outer layer of the skin, promoting fresh, new cells. Pomegranate oil helps reverse skin damage and reveal a more youthful appearance.
The UV rays of the sun cause photoaging, including larger pores, uneven skin tone and wrinkles. Rosehip oil contains a unique combination of properties that combat UV damage. It’s high in vitamin A and other antioxidants, to fight aging caused by free radicals. Combined with the oil's essential fatty acids, these powerful phytonutrients help improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation.
Revered as a soothing, healing, intensely moisturizing oil, ancient Egyptians used myrrh to prevent the signs of aging. Today, we know that myrrh oil promotes collagen, a characteristic of younger, stronger, smoother skin. As an astringent, it also strengthens skin cells, preventing future damage.
Dead sea minerals
The waters and mud of the Dead Sea contain a high concentration of minerals with therapeutic and beautifying benefits. Dead Sea minerals are used to treat persistent skin conditions, but the benefits extend to all skin types. In Israel, people rely on Dead Sea minerals to renew skin damaged by a harsh environment. Application to the skin reveals a purer, smoother, fresher complexion. That’s because Dead Sea minerals remove toxins, reduce inflammation, strengthen tissues, boost circulation, gently exfoliate and speed skin cell turnover.
NO preservatives, NO SLS or surfactants
