DIY Olive Oil face mask

As a follow up to the Egg White Facial which tightens pores and acts as an instant mini face lift, the olive oil face mask is a quick instant moisturizer. This is beneficial during any time of the year, whether your skin is dry during the brisk winter, or if you spend hours out on the beach during the summer exposing your skin to the dry sun. The olive oil facial will add a glow to your skin that you won’t be able to get otherwise and is much more affordable than expensive facial lotions or bronzers with shimmer, and will give you a natural glow. It’s simple to do, after your egg white facial once a week just add a little bit of olive oil (I like to use Bertolli because it isn't expensive but you can use any brand) to a cotton ball and leave on your face for five minutes, and rinse with water. Doing this once a week will make your skin shimmer without leaving an oily look or feel to your face.

Another way to keep your skin glowing is to simply hydrate it. This is easily done by drinking lots of water. Often times people worry about retaining water weight and feeling bloated, however water is very important to the body in many ways. Water can actually aid in losing weight because it helps your body digest food and flush out your system, and drinking more water during the day can make your body feel “full” and prevent over eating. Water is essential for many organs to work properly, and we need to make sure to take care of our body and organs as much as possible, and is the most natural way to rid your body of toxins. Implementing more water into your daily routine will also improve the look of your skin, hair, and nails by hydrating. You always hear to try and drink at least 6-8 eight ounce glasses of water a day. Some people find this difficult to do especially when first transitioning because it seems like all you are doing all day is gulping down water. However it is most important to just make an effort to incorporate more water into your daily routine at first and you will eventually be able to hydrate your body effortlessly, especially with the summer season approaching.
