Rejuvenating Pear Citrus Mask
[This content is from Splish, Splash: Recipes for the Bath.]

Even though we in the northeast have been longing for sunshine, I invite you to whip up a little in your own kitchen with this yummy, fresh, SUMMERY mask.

All citrus fruits contain citric acid (hence the name), which tightens pours and eliminates dead skin. Pears contain sorbitol, a natural ingredient that helps to hold moisture in the skin (if you have sensitive skin, do not leave this mask on for more than 5 minutes).

2 egg whites
juice of 1/2 orange
juice of 1/2 grapefruit
1/2 cup of pear juice

Use a wire whisk to beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the orange, grapefruit and pear juices and mix well. Spread mask on clean skin and leave on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse face with cold water and pat dry.
