You're going to think I'm crazy, but this idea really works for beautiful skin! Take plain Elmer's glue (you can buy it at Walmart) and rub it all over your face. Keep away from eyes and mouth. Let dry completely. Gently pull off all of the glue OR use a warm wash cloth and gently scrub it free from your skin. Your skin will feel so soft. Do once or twice a week.

Don't know why I never thought of this! You're right, good old (cheap) Elmer's makes a great facial peel. I've never tried it on my face, but I remember its non-toxicity from earliest childhood. Needless to say, I've peeled dead skin from my fingers this way more than once, lol!

I've done this too. But be advised :), that it can also pull out some fine hairs.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but I saw this on T.V. a couple weeks ago, can't remember where I saw it, but I thought it was interesting.
Us women are always looking for a good face mask, well we all know there are a million types out there and they are not always a reasonable price. Well here is one that is cheap and I assume would do the same thing, clean out your pores. Open your craft closet and get out the Elmers Glue, yep glue. Spread it all over your face, wait for it to dry and then peel away. It does the same thing those expensive facial masks do, right! It will not hurt you, I tried it, so give it a try. We all have Elmers Glue laying around.

Egg whites make a great face mask, without the chemicals. Just smear them on, let 'em dry, then wash the dried mask off with a wet washcloth. :-) (08/26/2008)
