Face Masks and Other Stuff 2021

Ciao bella,

What better time to relax in your bath and take care of your skin? A nice warm water temp with Epsom Salts should make for a relaxing time. Light your scented candles for some ambiance and you're good to go. Get out that pretty robe youíve been saving and use it! After your soak, you may want to Exfoliate with a wash cloth. Just rub your skin that's been soaking and you will be able to see the skin slough right off! Itís amazing.

Dry off and apply a deep moisturizer all over damp, sloughed skin.

Now apply your Face Mask. Your complexion needs a treat. Indulge in an antioxidant age-fighting face mask. With just a few pantry staples including cocoa you can replenish moisture and firm skin. The honey which is a humectant will hydrate. Sour cream contains lactic acid which will soften and gently exfoliate. The egg white is a protein which will tighten skin.

"Mask-at Home Ingredients"

Use one tablespoon of each cocoa powder, honey, and sour cream.

Add one egg white. Mix in a bowl. Apply to clean complexion.

Let dry. Rinse.

Lightly towel dry.

There you go ... soft baby like skin that glows!

To all my Glamazons and my colleagues at the Post-Gazette, a very happy and loving Valentine's Day!

Buona Giornata and God Bless the USA!
