Pineapple sage adds a fresh, uplifting scent. The oatmeal and honey rid your pores of any surface impurities and the egg white is astringent. If you have very dry skin, you can add a teaspoon of olive oil.</p>
<p>• 1?2 cup boiling water<br />
• 1 tablespoon fresh pineapple sage leaves (or any sage variety)<br />
• 3 tablespoons oatmeal<br />
• 2 tablespoons honey<br />
• 1 egg white</p>
<p>1. Pour boiling water over sage leaves and allow to cool completely. <br />
<br />
2. Strain and pour the sage liquid over oatmeal, honey and egg white. Mix well until creamy and smooth.<br />
<br />
3. To use: Spread mask on face and neck; let sit 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and pat skin dry. Follow with moisturizer. Store leftover mask in the refrigerator.</p>
