Chardonnay Clarifying Mask

+ enlarge

If you’re missing your nightly glass of white wine now that you’re pregnant, then this wonderfully simple mask will go a little way to remind you of the heady days of summer. Wine tasting in a sun-drenched valley. Picnicking by the side of the river. Relaxing with your honey under the stars. (The delightful occasions that probably lent heavily to your current situation).

Moving on, the egg whites also pack a punch. They’re great for oily skin, as they help draw out impurities. While this mask will tighten a little over your skin, it’s cool, and comfortable enough to keep on your face for hours at a time.

Please note: don’t even think about tasting this mask. Raw egg whites aren’t a good idea for pregnant women.

Overnight Mask for Oily Skin

One egg white
1 tablespoon white wine

Whip the egg white and wine into a froth and simply spread onto your face. You can keep this mask on all night and then rinse off with lukewarm water in the morning.
