2 Minute Egg white Mask

Hello my DIYers!

Here's a super quick Health and beauty DIY for you all that is sure to get your facial pores smaller, and your skin on its way to flawlessness.

________________________________________


Difficulty rating: Easy

________________________________________


I only recommend this mask for twice a week.
Lemon juice can cause sensitivity when used on skin, in combination with UVA&UVB rays (from the sun), due to its acidic skin lightening properties. Once using this mask, limit your facial sun party for 24 hours or use a good suns screen! :)

Alternatively remove the lemon juice from this recipe, and use as often as you would like!
Just remember to eat those egg yolks!

*Helpful Hint*
 Those with sensitive skin may want to skip the lemon in this recipe as it may cause sensitivity due to its acidity.

What you need:
Tools:
A pot for your mixture (a lid is useful)
A whisk or fork,
A facial brush (for application)

Ingredients:
1 egg (separated into white and yolk),
1 teaspoon Lemon juice,
___________________________________

STEP ONE: Preparing The Mixture

Separate your egg white from the egg yolk and place in separate containers. Whisk the egg white lightly until bubbles form. (keep the yolk in the fridge for eating, we don't need it in this recipe but don't waste it! :P) 

STEP TWO: Additional Ingredients

Add the 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to the whisked egg white.
 Lemon is a natural product but to be completely natural go for organic so there are no chemicals that our bodies will have to fight to get rid of. (we're healing here not causing more work!)


STEP THREE: Application

Once your mixture is complete apply to your face using a foundation brush or another similar facial brush. Try to follow the contours of your face and be gentle ( we don't want premature wrinkles!) Applying quite liberally all over avoiding the sensitive lip and eye areas.

STEP FOUR: Drying time

This mask will take approximately 20 minutes to dry depending on humidity etc. You will know it's completely dry when it becomes difficult to smile and you look about 100 years of age when you try to move you face and your egg covered skin has at least 1000 wrinkles per square inch XD believe me, it's a strange look. Haha

STEP FIVE: Rinse & admire

Rinse your skin with clean mildly warm water for optimum results. Get a mirror, and admire your skin, your pores should feel and look tighter. Your skin may be slightly reddened from the cleansing and lemon juice, but should feel intensely moisturised and glowing!


VOILĂ€ YOUR DONE!

You can keep any left over mixture in your pot, covered over with lid or cling film  in the fridge for up to 3 days.

So pamper away and get those pores smaller and 
that skin smoother and re hydrated!


I Hope you all enjoyed this DIY egg mask. Stay tuned for all this and more!

Much Love
