Brewer’s yeast is the byproduct of beer-making, so it’s the perfect manly ingredient. Use the facial mask once a month to clean out clogged pores and remove any dead skin and surface impurities. Brewer’s yeast can be found at most natural food stores in both powdered and liquid form.

• 1 teaspoon powdered brewer’s yeast
• 1 tablespoon buttermilk or plain yogurt

1. Mix yeast and buttermilk until smooth.

2. To use: Spread an even layer over your face and neck. Let sit for 10 to 20 minutes. Rinse well with warm then cool water and pat your skin dry. Store any leftover mask in the refrigerator.
