I read that a good skin facial to counteract dry skin is made with a paste of lemon juice, egg yolk and olive oil....I am trying it out here...I didn't use flash and just went with existing light in this self portrait. I left the mixture on my face for 10 minutes and then washed it off... Just thought I would mention this worked out quite well and my skin feels less dry! I am sure the olive oil is the secret ingredient for dry skin.

    A wonderful SP! You are brave to post this picture! Much braver than I. LOL. Great use of available light. Flash probably would have glared on your treatment. Let me know how this works. The winter has played havock on my skin!

    Andrea, that is one delightful lemon facial which I will have to try! I still have that olive oil that I have not tried using yet, but it looks very helpful for that facial mixture! Shucks I had to sign in this morning and have not had to do it for the past few weeks. Blessings from Bonnie
