Rosemary-Citrus Mask for Oily Skin

Use common kitchen ingredients to treat oily skin.


| April/May 2009


Makes 2 ounces

Oranges contain citric acid, making this mask ideal for troubled or blotchy skin. Egg whites also are a good choice for oily skin types. 

• 1 egg white
• Juice of 1⁄2 orange (approximately 1⁄4 cup)
• 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves

1. Beat egg white until white and foamy, using a small whisk or fork. 

2. Add orange juice and rosemary and stir. 

3. To use: Spread the mixture onto clean skin and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat skin dry. Discard any remaining mask, as it does not keep well.
