Recently I posted about using eggs as hair conditioner which split commenters are down the middle into the ‘ewwww’ and ‘wow’ camps. I hate eggs myself but couldn’t deny what great benefits and best condition it left my usually frizzy hair in. One of the commenters, Land Girl 1980 mentioned that she uses egg whites and tissue to create a homemade facial face mask for removal of blackhead and I instantly knew I had to give that a go!
Previously I’ve made egg white face masks to remove blackheads and found they’ve really firmed my skin and closed pores but I hadn’t thought about adding tissue to it. I can hear you all now, saying ‘What? What do you mean tissue?’
Types Of Blackheads
1. Popping Blackheads
2. Deep Blackheads
3. Large Blackheads
4. Squeezing Blackheads
Egg White Face Mask Ingredients
What you will need
– 2 egg whites
– 1 tissue
– A whisk/fork/food blended type doodah & honey
How to make an Egg White Face Mask
1. Whisk the egg whites up into a lemon light froth, you want them to be white but in no way firm. (I tried it without whisking them and ended up in a big old mess.)
2. Separate the layers/ply of tissue so you just have one.
3. Paste around half the egg white on your skin with a makeup brush (I used one of those otherwise useless ones which come with blusher).
4. Pat the tissue onto your face – you may want to cut holes for your eyes and mouth or do it in sections.
5. Smooth the remaining egg white over the tissue. Please try not to chase your husband around the flat pretending to kill him. Mine didn’t like it.
6. Allow to dry the remover blackhead face mask.
7. Remove once firm and tight. It should peel off in a film like a state.
My skin felt remarkably smooth afterward and my pores (the bane of my life) were closed up leaving my skin looking a natural darn sight perkier than usual.
