Egg White Face Mask

May 26, 2014

Lemon and honey are two of my favorite ingredients when it comes to DIY beauty recipes--they're inexpensive and they both do wonderful things for the skin (see here and here). When the two are combined with vitamin-rich egg whites they create a face mask that fights acne and helps to balance oily skin, perfect for summer since skin tends to produce more sebum (oil) in the hotter months. 

Egg White Face Mask
1 egg white
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey

Combine egg white and lemon juice and whisk until frothy (don't worry, the lemon juice will cover the smell of the egg white). Add the honey and mix well. Hold a warm, wet cloth on your face for a few seconds to open your pores, then use clean hands or a cotton pad to apply the egg mask in a gentle circular motion to your face. Allow to dry (about 10-15 minutes) then rinse off with warm water.

If you do have dry skin, even in the summer, combine the egg yolk with the honey (nix the lemon) and apply to your face for a hydrating, softening treatment.
