Having acne-prone skin is nothing short of a struggle. At times, it seems like no matter what you do and what products you use for your skin, you get breakouts no matter what. Whether you want to brighten up your skin or clear it, this face mask could be the one for you! This simple mask is great to incorporate once a week into your beauty routine for glowing and radiant skin. You might be wondering what’s in it that makes it so special? Just two things: egg white and lemon juice. That’s it. We’ll explain the reasons for those ingredients now.
Egg whites have been a key ingredient in face masks for a long time now, and for good reason. Using egg whites on the skin is great for shrinking large pores, preventing wrinkles, and hydrating the skin. Just make sure to whisk the whites before applying them to the face.
Lemon juice is another common ingredient used in home acne remedies. One thing to be wary of is not using too much of it. Since it’s very acidic, it can irritate sensitive skin after a while. Lemon juice helps tone and brighten the skin, not to mention, it has antibacterial properties which is why it’s good for acne and clearing the pores. In fact, lemon can also help with fading acne scars.
So, how can you make this mask? It’s simple. What you need is 1 egg white and lemon.
Grab a small mixing bowl and put the egg white in. Whisk it until it’s fluffy. Then, squeeze the lemon and add the juice to the whites. Mix it all together and then apply the mixture to the face, avoiding the eyes.
Let the mask sit for 15-20 minutes until it hardens. Once it’s firm and dry, wash it off gently with warm water and pat your face dry.
