Country Lore: Refreshing Homemade Facial Masks

Using common food items from your kitchen, you can make homemade facial masks.

| August/September 2009

Did you know you can make refreshing homemade facial masks from items found in your pantry and refrigerator? The benefits are threefold: saving money, sparing the environment exposure to more chemical-laden products, and using natural skin care!

Here are recipes for two of my favorite face masks:

Farmer’s Wife Face Mask

2 chilled egg whites
1/8 tsp cornstarch



Whip the egg whites until they form peaks, then slowly add the cornstarch. Apply the mixture immediately to your face, leaving it on for 20 minutes. Rinse your face with cool water.

Glorious Green Facial Mask
