    I am going to give this a try, especially since I just splurged on some nice honey to go with figs and goat cheese rolled in pecans. Thanks!

    Apply the mixture of honey and egg white on your face up to 30 minutes and wash it off with tepid water. This facemask gently removes the tan from your face.
