Fullsteam Brewery introduced its Cackalacky Ginger Pale Ale on Sunday, Jan. 27, with a kazoo-themed launch party.

— To help celebrate North Carolina Beer Month, why not treat your skin to a facial featuring your favorite brew! 

The Umstead's Spa Director Carolyn Doe recently shared this recipe with us for a Beer Facial. The beer's yeast helps balance the pH levels in skin and targets bacteria that can cause breakouts. 

NC Beer Facial recipe

What you'll need: 

For oily skin: 2 tablespoons of egg whites
For dry skin: 2 tablespoons of egg yolks and a vitamin E capsule
2 tablespoons of your favorite North Carolina Beer

What to do: 

Wisk together and apply to the skin with a cotton ball
Allow to dry for about 20 minutes
Apply a wet warm towel to loosen the mask
Rinse well until the entire mask is removed

Note: If you are allergic to any ingredients in the recipe just don't use them.
