I started using a face mask several years ago that my European ex-boyfriend's mother told me about. 

2 spoonfuls of sour cream
1 tsp salt (give or take, depending on how much you can handle)

Slather it on, leave it for 10ish minutes, and rinse off! It's a good exfoliator. The salt helps to dry up any blemishes you have (especially if you're a picker) and the sour cream moisturizers. I'm not going to lie, if you have sensitive skin it'll burn. But think of it as soaking your face in the ocean for a bit :P 

Thanks Alex for submitting your recipe!

Essential oils such as rosemary, lavender, tea tree and others can be added for scent as well as further blemish fighting properties. Baking soda can be substituted for the salt for those with sensitive skin.
