CARY, N.C. — 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.
