Starting Sunday, use the following day-by-day special treatments daily on your skin to get a glow by Thursday.

Sunday:

Drink four glasses with lemon daily to detoxify your system.

Use exfoliating scrub on your face and neck for 2 minutes. Rinse and apply a mineral clay mask for 10 minutes.

Moisturise.

Monday:

Take 5 minutes to steam your face, and then squeeze out the impurities very gently. At night, massage extra virgin coconut oil into your face.

Tuesday:

Cleanse your face thoroughly using gentle soap in the morning and apply sunscreen.

In the evening, wash your face with pure milk. Sleep with the milk on your face and neck.

Rinse in the morning and moisturise.

Wednesday:

By today, your skin is glowing already. Wash and apply sunscreen.

Dab some milk on your face at lunchtime and in the evening.

Whisk an egg white, and apply it as a mask to sleep in.

Thursday:

Rinse the egg white and re-apply a fresh egg mask in the morning. Leave on for 20 minutes.

Moisturise and repeat the procedure in the evening.

Your skin will glow and feel soft due to the protein in the egg and milk.
