Since summer is here with a bang, taking care of your skin is very important. Our pores open up due to the heat and excrete oil which mix along with the dirt on our face and stick to our skin, causing acne breakouts.
Egg has many qualities that can help your skin look beautiful. It tightens your skin and moisturizes it as well. It reduces skin irritation and also reduces puffy eyes.
These D.I.Y pore strips are very beneficial during the summers and are very cheap. If you go for regular facials and deep cleansing, then you can save a lot of money by just doing this twice a month. All you need is an egg and a tissue paper. :D
How to do it? –
Separate the egg white from the egg yolk. Put them in two different bowls.
Take a 2x ply tissue, separate them and tear/cut it into small strips. Wash your face thoroughly with warm water so as to open up your pores and towel pat dry. Apply a thin layer of egg white on your face and quickly cover it with the tissue strips. Leave it on for 10 – 15 minutes or until it dries. Slowly pull the strips from your face in an upward motion. After removing them very carefully, wash your face again with warm water and towel dry. Now take the egg yolk and apply it on your face and let it dry. As the egg yolk dries, it will harden on your face. Wash it with water and you will feel the smoothness on your skin. This smoothness lasts up to 2 weeks and your pores remain tight.
I usually ice my skin after washing my face so as to close the remaining open pores.
It can be a bit messy. Remember to do it near the wash basin.
The smell. Although it is not that strong that it will disgust you and nor does it remain on your skin, but do not leave the egg in the washroom. After you are done with this remedy, throw the remaining egg away or ask your siblings to do it too! :D
