If you have dry skin, add about 8 drops of lemon and if you have oily skin, add up to 1 tablespoon. Step 2: Check consistency The mixture shouldn’t be too clumpy or too runny. If the mix is too thick, you can add in a bit more extra virgin olive oil or water to thin it out. You can add a bit more honey to the mix to give it a thicker, paste-like texture. Cool down. Let the mixture cool down so that the temperature is comfortable on your skin. Step 3: Mask time Let the fun part begins!
