There is nothing better than Southern California weather. Knowing that the sun is always going to fill your day is a beautiful thing! However, my skin is so fair that it easily gets those dark sun spots and those pesky little sun reminders can be annoying! Since paying for a facial every week is not an option, here is a simple face mask that you can create yourself at home to brighten up your skin and calm down those dark spots, plus it smells amazing!

Brightening Beer Facial:
Adapted from the Mexican Beer Lime Facial at La Esperanza Resort, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
What you need:
1 egg white
½ cup beer, any kind will do
2 tsp fresh lime juice
How to apply:
Mix the egg whites, beer and lime juice. Slather onto your skin and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
Why it works:
Beer is a soothing cleanser that contains B vitamins, hops, yeast and saccharides. All of these help to dissolve dead skin cells and increase your skins luminosity. Once the beer joins up with the egg whites, it creates this filmy mask which helps to hydrate your skin and can even improve its elasticity. That little dash of lime juice is going to help clear up the pores, add some vitamin C and fade those spots!
