Egg white and lemon: excellent in a meringue, even better on your face!
Eggs and lemons are two of nature’s super foods, loaded with vitamins, minerals, and protein (in the egg). But both are also excellent sources for natural skincare.
If you’ve been following along so far, you already know that lemon can brighten and lighten your skin, dissolving dark spots and even freckles. But eggs are equally excellent ingredients for glowing skin!
The proteins in eggs can help to heal, rebuild, and renew your skin. They are naturally astringent, which make them a great choice for those with oily skin, and their drawing powers help to remove and clear away blackheads.
You can leave this mask on for up to 15 minutes. You should feel it tightening as it dries. That’s how you know it’s working! Take some time to relax and renew while the mask does its work. You’ll feel and see the difference in no time!

- Spot test any products or ingredients before using any homemade products on your face, head, or body, especially if you have sensitive skin or are prone to irritation and/or allergies.
