After-Winter Pickup

Steam the face with peppermint. (Add peppermint leaves to boiling water and make a towel tent over your head to trap the steam.) Then gently massage the face with the following mixture. Mix 1 unbeaten egg white with a few drops of spirit of camphor. Add enough warm milk to make a paste. Put on the face and let dry. Rinse well and blot skin to dry.
