DIY: Lemon Olive Oil Mask

15 December 2010


I stumbled upon this amazing Lemon Olive Oil Mask DIY on TotalBeauty.com the other night. Turns out it's the perfect pick me up before you head out on the town for all those holiday parties. Here's the scoop,  the olive oil moisturizes (which we all need in this weather), the lemon brightens as well helps out those troublesome blackheads and blemishes, oatmeal treats blotches and the egg whites tighten your skin. Though olive oil is best for dry skin (and has been known to treat acne), the combination of ingredients is great for normal, combination, oily and acne prone skin. All the benefits of a facial straight from your kitchen.
