(English) Cultivating for oily and combination skin
Do you suffer from oily skin? Although it may seem hard to believe, extra virgin olive oil can actually help if you mix it with the right ingredients to make a simple facemask. Blend the yolk of an egg and the juice of half a lemon (or a whole one depending on the size) with two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil. This combination will make a thick, dense paste, which you should leave on the face for twenty minutes and then rinse off with cold water. You will soon notice the astringent effects of the lemon along with the oil’s soothing, softening properties.
