Skin Softening Mask Recipe: Olive Oil Face Mask
- 2 TBL. honey.
- 1/2 C. oats.
- 1 large whole egg, beaten.
- 2 tsp. granulated sugar.
- 1/4 C. milk.
- 1 TBL. olive oil.
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, rinsing with warm water which will open up pores. Gently pat your face dry. Blend ingredients above thoroughly, making a paste. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes so the oats soften before adding the sugar. Apply the mask evenly, avoiding the sensitive eye area. Gently rub the mask in circular motion to allow the sugar to slough off any dead skin. Rinse off after 15-20 minutes with warm water. Ooh La La for Olive Oil!
