Avocado & Honey Nourishing Mask:

1 teasp. runny honey
2 teasps Greek live yogurt
2 drops jasmine or rose essence

Mix all together well, apply thickly and leave for at least 10 mins.
Wipe off with a dry muslin cloth, rinse the cloth in warm water to remove the rest of the mask. Refresh skin after this, with some rosewater.

Egg White Mask for oily skin

Whisk whites till stiff and add remaining ingredients. Gently apply mix to face, avoiding your eyes. Lerave to dry for 15 mins or so then rinse well with warm water.

Egg White Mask - general

Let it dry then rise off with cool to warm water.
You can add your own choice of additive to this.
