You need

1 egg white
1 tsp freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp sour cream (not fat-free)

3. ADD the mixture to the egg white then apply it to a clean face.
4. LEAVE it for 15 minutes, then rinse off and dry your face.

TOMATO EXFOLIATOR

1 lg organic tomato
2 tsp brown sugar
½ tsp honey

Method: SMOOSH the tomato in a glass bowl, then mix in the brown sugar and honey. Gently massage the mixture on your face and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse and dry your face.
