I am always looking for ways to save and I HATE the prices of exfoliants and facial masks that are available in the stores. The ones that I use, I always have the ingredients on hand and they make your face feels so refreshed and smooth. I hope you try and enjoy.

How To Make facial scrubs and masks

  • 1
    These ingredients make two masks and one facial scrub. Separate the egg whites from the yolk and place in two small bowls. **I do the egg white mask first and then the egg yolk mask. For easy removal of the yolk mask, I do it before I jump in the shower and take it off in there. Apply the egg whites to your face and neck area and let dry. Rinse off. This tightens everything up, make your skin feel more firm. Next you apply the egg yolk to face in a thin layer. Allow to dry. The protein in the egg makes your face feel very soft and smooth.

    For the face scrub, mix in a bowl the sugar and lemon juice. Apply to face and lightly scrub in a circular motion. The lemon juice acts like a natural astringent and can also lighten up any scarring and sun damage. Your face will feel so refreshed and smooth when you are done. You will ask everyone to feel your face afterwards! LOL. I also have noticed that I need less moisturizer on my face afterwards and also my makeup goes on smoother and I need less of that as well. You can also use this scrub as an all over body scrub. Use it on your knees, elbows and feet.

    combine brown sugar (about 1/4 cup) in a small bowl with enough honey to make a thick-to soupy paste. Rub this on your lips in a circular motion to exfoliate the dead skin off of your lips.... AND it tastes fantastic!!! LOL
