would it be safe to put pure extra virgin olive oil on around the eye instead of a moisturizer...I have heard that olive oil has powerful antioxidants. Please advise

I will put olive oil in my hair and it works well for me. I can't see why you would have a problem putting it around your eyes but I don't know how effective it would be. There are several olive oil eye treatments on the market so it may very well work.

For some people, it will be too heavy, but you can mix it 1:1 or 1:2 with your favorite light moisturizer.

I do it all the time and it seems fairly safe. I've gotten it IN my eyes on more than one occasion and it didn't cause any real harm.
