This recipe is taken from the 1975 Milk Calendar. This is the Strawberry Flip Facial Masque, Wrinkle Remover & Sun Screener recipe.
- In a blender combine
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) whole Milk for normal or dry skin or skim Milk for oily skin
- 6 ripe strawberries
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
Whip all ingredients until smooth and apply evenly over the skin's surface. (Be sure your skin is absolutely clean before starting). Leave it on until it dries, about fifteen minutes. Rinse with warm, then cool water. Strawberries are one of nature's best astringents. However, if they're not available, cucumber or apricots are good substitutes.
WRINKLE REMOVERMix equal parts of milk and butter and smooth on skin. Leave it on as long as you like, or overnight. (However, if you do leave it on overnight, expect a slightly greasy pillowcase in the morning). Use daily. This mixture will help restore oils to the skin but good results take 30 days, so don't quit halfway through.
SUN SCREENERAn unsaturated oil (such as sesame oil) blended with milk should protect your skin while helping you tan. But don't overdo it. No skin can take too much exposure without damage.
