DIY Skin Brightening Facial

We love experimenting with new skincare treatments at the Canvas office. This week I volunteered to be the tester of an egg white and beer face mask (yes, it really has beer in it). Ready to add some glow to my post-winter skin, I was excited to see if this at home facial held up to the rave reviews I've heard in the past.

It only has 3 ingredients and when combined is a bit watery. I painted the mask on with fresh makeup brush and let it sit for 10 minutes. After I washed it off, my skin was smooth as silk and literally glowed. This is hands-down one of the best DIY recipes I've tried!

Ingredients: 1 egg white, 1/2 cup beer (any brand) and 2 tsp fresh lime juice (I used lemon).

How it works: Beer is a soothing cleanser with B vitamins, hops, saccharides and yeast, which help dissolve dead cells and increase skin's luminosity. When combined with egg white, the years in the beer creates a filmy mask that hydrates the skin and improves luminosity. Adding the vitamin C from the lime helps to clear pores and fade brown spots.

Directions: Combine the egg white and beer with the lime juice and mix. Paint onto face (or slather with your fingers). After 10 minutes, rinse with warm water.

Stay Stylish,
