1 Egg White
1/2 T. Raw Honey
1/2 T. Fresh Lemon Juice
Place all ingredients in a deep bowl. Whip briskly with a fork or whisk until foamy, 1-2 minutes.
Wash and dry your face, and then, using your fingers or a small brush, spread the mixture over your entire face, avoiding the eye area. I like to spread it on as thickly as possible without it dripping.
Leave the mask on for 30 minutes, or until it has completely dried and feels tight on your skin.
Rinse the mask off with warm water, using a wash cloth to gently wipe the mask away.
Splash your face with very cold water and gently pat dry.
Lemon Juice may aid in the lightening of dark spots left by acne scars, aging, and hyperpigmentation. It has antibacterial properties and helps to speed up the healing of existing acne as well as prevent future breakouts. It helps to remove blackheads and reduces skin oiliness. It also helps to remove dead skin cells resulting in brighter, smoother, glowing skin.
Egg Whites help to tighten the skin and shrink pores. They contribute to maintaining elasticity in the skin and can reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Raw Honey, as I talked about in my last skin care post, draws moisture to the skin and helps to retain it. It also has antibacterial properties and helps to heal the skin.
