As we age, our skin becomes drier. This moisturizing mask plumps up dry skin with egg yolks, which are an excellent source of skin-softening lecithin. If you have extremely dry skin, use weekly.
• 1 egg yolk
• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 1 to 2 tablespoons mashed avocado
1. Mix all ingredients and stir until smooth.
2. To use: Spread on damp skin. Let sit 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water; pat dry.
