1

Summer time means less makeup and less makeup means your skin will be showing its true colors. Get ready to show it off with a mask that will leave your skin super soft and glowing. The ingredients are easy to find in your kitchen cabinet. They are a handful of blueberries, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, half a tomato and half a lemon. 

Blueberries are great for glowing skin. They also contain vitamins A, B complex, C and E, potassium, zinc, copper, iron and magnesium. Blueberries help smooth skin. They also help eliminate scars, increase elasticity, fight against blemishes and acne and help even out skin tone.

Olive oil was once described as liquid gold for good reason. It doesn’t clog pores and enhances exfoliation. It’s also great for moisturizing skin.

Tomato contains Vitamins A, C and K. It helps get rid of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. This leaves skin radiant and glowing.

Lemon heals acne and removes blackheads. It also lightens dark spots and blemishes because of lemon’s citric acid. Lemon is also great for balances the oil balance of the skin, getting rid of oily skin.
