This makeup remover is also recommended for mature skins that especially need to be nourished and will love the tensor effect of aloe vera.
2/The olive oil in capillary mask
If you have dry, damaged, tired, dull hair, olive oil can reboost them with a mask based on egg yolk and honey.

For the massage to offer all its benefits, it must be practiced with circular movements from bottom to top for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm and cold water to give a tensor effect.
