Fabulous Rosewater Facial
Combine in a bowl: 1 egg yolk * 2 T. egg white * 1 T. honey * 1 t. rose water
Beat together and then apply to the face and neck. Leave on for about 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. You will be amazed how refreshed you feel!

Fabulous Rosewater Toner
After the facial, you can spritz your face with a facial toner made from:
1/2 c. distilled witchhazel * 1/2 c. rose or lavendar water * 3/4 t. vegtable glycerin (these items can be found at Mountain Rose Herbs, link below). Shake your toner before each use, and spray or pat on your face when it is feeling dry.

I highly recommend Mountain Rose Herbs, they sell high quality, fresh, organic herbs, perfect for your homemade cosmetics.
