Do-It-Yourself Facial That’s Practically Free

All you need are a few ingredients from your kitchen.

As promised a few days ago, this is the practically free three-step skin care regimen “When You Can’t Afford the Salon” facial.

1. Steam. Boil water in a teapot. Put towel over your head. Open the spout and stoop over the teapot for 30 seconds. Don’t put your face right to it! Do a series of three steams with a break in between. This loosens oil and dirt for the second step.

2. Exfoliate. Follow the steam with a cornmeal scrub to exfoliate. Mix a paste of finely ground cornmeal and water, spread it over your face and massage it in as you would a storebought scrub. Rinse with warm water.

3. Moisturize. The final step is an egg white and yoghurt mask. First, apply moisturizer around the eyes and mouth. Whip one egg with plain organic yoghurt and apply to face. Let it dry for a few minutes. Rinse off with warm water and a splash of cold water to close pores.
