What it does for your skin:
Beer is a soothing cleanser. Did you know that In ancient Egypt, long considered the birthplace of beer, women of the upper classes used beer for all sorts of beauty and skin healing purposes. 4,000 years later, scientific studies have confirmed that beer sediment (brewer's yeast) can help improve the symptoms of acne by slowing down sebum production and killing off the bacteria that triggers acne. When mixed with egg white, the yeast in the beer creates a filmy mask that hydrates and improves the elasticity of the skin. The lime (or a lemon), is a source of vitamin C, which helps clear pores and brighten skin by fading brown spots.
Do it yourself:
Combine the beer, egg whites and lime juice and lather onto face as a mask. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water.
