Keeping your skin beautiful doesn't have to cost you a fortune. You can spend a lot of money if you purchase facial masks from boutiques and spas. However, if you want to save some money and still treat your face to care that will keep you looking your best, you can make your own facial sugar mask. The sugar in this mask acts as a gentle exfoliate to remove dead skin cells from your face.
Things You'll Need
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp. almond extract
- 1 egg white
Place the sugar, almond extract and egg white into a bowl.
Whip the ingredients together briskly until you form a paste.
Spread the paste onto your face, avoiding your eyes and nostrils. Massage the mixture gently into your skin to exfoliate dead cells.
Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes.
Rinse off the mask with warm water and pat your face dry. Follow with a moisturizer.
