Skin Saving Lemon and Egg Face Mask

I wanted to share this all-natural face mask, as I swear by it on those lovely days of break-outs. It’s so good for my skin, and keeps blemishes at bay. It’s so satisfying knowing exactly what is in this mask, and not having any nasty chemicals on your face. This mask is great for those with oily or combination skin like mine.

 

Lemons

 

It’s a really simple recipe:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon

I whisk the egg white until frothy on the top, then squeeze the lemon in while still whisking. I keep the egg yolk to one side to add to something at a later date. Cheeky double yolk fried egg anyone?

Using a cotton pad, smooth over the face and neck area and leave until dry. It will feel really strange, your face will be rock solid and you will look like a living doll if you try and speak to someone (anyone get that reference?) but it works wonders!!

Rinse off with warm water and admire your tiny pores and fresher complexion. After this do your usual moisturising routine.

 

The Science:

The whisked egg white helps to reduce excess sebum in the skin by shrinking the size of your pores. An added bonus to this miracle mask. Egg white has also an exfoliating effect, removing the accumulated dirt from your pores.

Lemon will brighten the skin and also exfoliates. It’s great for spot-prone skin, age and sun spots or uneven skin tone. Its natural anti-bacterial power cleanses the pores leaving them squeaky clean. It will also give your skin a firmer and more even look. What’s not to love?

 

I would love to hear if you try this mask and if it works for you!
