Lemon Olive Oil Mask
Olive oil moisturizes skin and lemon lightens and brightens. Olive oil is full of Vitamins C, D and E, antioxidants and iron, all of which help our skin regenerate and retain moisture. 
When olive oil is combined with lemon juice, wrinkles and impurities such as blackheads diminish! S W E E T!!! (Tip) Add in oatmeal and it will help treat blotchy skin. And go the extra step by adding egg whites to this mask + you'll get a tightening effect. They say olive oil is best suited for dry skin, but this lemon olive oil face mask is ALSO great for normal, combination, oily (raises right-hand HI :) and acne-prone skin due to the combination of ingredients.

1/2 cup cooked instant oatmeal (cooled) 
1 egg white
