- fine sugar
- plain cream (the kind for coffee/tea), milk or plain yogurt, preferably organic
Damp your face, put a teaspoonful of sugar in your palm, mix it with a tablespoonful of either cream, milk or yogurt. Lather gently on your entire face, carefully avoiding the eye area. Rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Voilà! Silky skin for a whole week to come.
This mask gives the skin a boost of enzymes and vitamins, keeps fair skin fair, and improves homogeneity of the skin tone.
Chop the cucumber into paper-thin slices, as pictured. This way each slice will fit the contour of your face, much like a mask. Avoid the delicate eye area. Enjoy the soothing aroma of the cucumber, and wait five to 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Instantly brighter skin!
