Beauty Tip Of The Day: DIY Lemon Olive Oil Mask For Clearer Skin.

I don't know why my skin keeps thinking I'm an annoying teeny bopper, because I've been breaking out like crazy! Okay, Okay...just because I've "subconsciously" hummed along to a couple of Justin Bieber songs does not make 15 again, so what's the deal?

I think it might be stress-related, either way I found this DIY lemon olive oil mask to clear up your skin and decide to pass it along to you lovelies! I love doing home-made facials. Not only does it save you time and money, but it's a quick and easy way to pamper and nourish your face!

Here's a little info on olive oil & lemon and what it does:

In a nutshell, olive oil moisturizes skin and lemon lightens and brightens. Olive oil is chock full of Vitamins C, D and E, antioxidants and iron, all of which help your skin regenerate and retain moisture. When olive oil is combined with lemon juice, wrinkles and impurities such as blackheads diminish -- pretty sweet, huh? Add in oatmeal and it will help treat blotchy skin. And go one step further by adding egg whites to this mask and you'll get a tightening effect. Unsurprisingly, olive oil is best suited for dry skin, but this lemon olive oil face mask is great for normal, combination, oily and acne-prone skin due to the combination of ingredients. Here's how to make it:
