Try these masks over the next few weeks to rejuvenate skin after a long summer of sunshine!

Woman Getting Facial Treatment

Moisture Mask: Combine 1 whole avocado, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Blend or mash until smooth. Add a teaspoon of sea salt for added exfoliation (optional, best for oily skin.) Apply mask to face and let sit 15-20 minutes. Wash face with warm water and pat dry.

Pore Shrinker: Apply egg whites evenly to face (use one egg’s whites or about a tablespoon out of carton, preferably pasteurized.) Let dry on face about 10 minutes and wash with a gentle cleanser and warm water. Face will feel a bit stiff and pores will be instantly smaller. Also helps fight blemishes!

Revitalization Recipe: Combine one part fresh-squeezed orange juice, one part milk, and two parts honey. Apply evenly to face and let soak for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
