3. Remove makeup with olive oil


-5 soy lecithin tablets

-200 milliliters of extra virgin olive oil

-10 drops of lemon

-1 pin

-1 recipient where it will be packed


As in the previous preparations, everything should be mixed in a container. The pin is used to break the tablets of soy lecithin. This is very useful for people who have dry skin. In addition, olive oil is a fundamental component for the fight against premature aging, gives elasticity to the skin and makes it look soft. For its part, soy lecithin becomes the main ally of the skin, because, as stated by the portal Con Salud, it allows collagen and elastin fibers to be produced and treats the retention of water on the skin surface, acting as an antioxidant because it inhibits oxidation levels in order to have a radiant and firm skin.

Extra tip:

If you definitely can not get any of these ingredients, you can make chamomile water and mix it with a few drops of olive oil. Using cotton you will see how this mixture removes makeup from your face.
