SKIN | Egg white mask



Sorry for the lack of posts but I have been busy with NYSC ( Nigerian youth service corps). 

I have combination/ oily skin which means I am prone to whiteheads/ blackheads. I'm really oily around 

my forehead and nose ( T-zone) and suffer from blackheads all the time. I tried biore pore strips in the 

past but I never went back to get more because it was to expensive in my opinion. So decided to try egg

white as an alternative cheap method and so far so good. Egg white mask is natural, gentle and removes

majority of my blackheads. 

As much as I like the egg white mask, I dread using the mask because its messy and the smell of egg gets 

on my nerves. The egg white mask has to be done really quickly. I advice you have all the items needed

before you apply it. 


Method
❀Cleanse face with your usual cleanser. 

❀ Separate the yolk from the egg white and place in a small bowl. 

❀Whisk the egg white with a fork until fluffy.

❀ Use an old makeup brush to apply the egg white on your face, avoiding the eye area. As you apply the egg white layer,apply a thin layer of tissue paper over the wet egg white.

❀Apply a generous amount of the egg white on the entire face and let it dry a bit before adding another layer. You can add about 4-5 layers concentrating more on your problem areas. 

❀Allow the mask air dry or fan dry. As the mask dries, you will feel your skin tighten which is a tad 
uncomfortable (this is a temporary feeling).

❀When the mask is completely dry, peel the mask off and your blackheads should come off with it.

❀Wash the residue  off with warm water and moisurize. 

If your going to try mask, remember that its trial and error. Allow the mask dry completely to get the best
results. 

Since I cannot make a tutorial, I recommend you check out @1SimplYounique youtube video.

I hope everyone is doing great?
