Homemade Brewer's Yeast Mask
Every now & then, we all need a quick-fix for our sluggish, dull complexion. We need something to slough away those tire, dead surface cells, stimulate the circulation & give us back some of our youthful, rosy glow.
Here's a new mask that I've recently tried. Easy, effective & cheap ~ 3 of my favorite things. :-)
This mask is good for every skin-type except very dry. normal/combination, oil and ~ for ladies like me ~ "mature" skin that is still oily.
You will need:
~a small or medium-sized bowl
~mixing spoon or spatula
~1 TB food grade Brewer's Yeast flakes (can be found in most health food markets)
~2 TB water (for oiler skin) OR milk (for combination/oily-mature skin)
1) simply combine both ingredients in a bowl until it forms a smooth-ish paste; add slightly more liquid if it's too dry
2) use your fingers for spread onto your face & throat; a thin layer is sufficient
3) leave on for about 20 minutes, rinse with cool water
4) apply moisturizer ~ I prefer hyulauronic acid, or something with it in it
**NOTE** Mask will tingle and tighten as it dries; if you start to feel too uncomfortable, rinse it off and apply moisturizer.
