This is a simple egg mask that is effective in clearing up acne and getting your complexion really clean. It will draw impurities out of your pores and deep-cleanse your skin. It is important to wash your face first with warm water to open up your pores. Use weekly for a glowing complexion.

• 2 egg yolks
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar

1. Mix together ingredients until smooth. 

2. To use: Apply to clean skin and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and then cool water and pat your skin dry. Apply to face and leave on until it dries, then wash it off with warm water.
