Acne breakouts are hell on your self-esteem. There is tons of research out there on dealing with acne using diet – try googling acne and diet for more tips on dealing with acne through diet. There are also plenty of tips online about how to cover up acne using makeup, etc.
You can also use a number of home remedies to treat it just using things already present in your cupboard. Eggs are big news when it comes to treating acne. There is no need to spend a fortune on specialized products at all.
Eggs should be one of the mainstays in any natural acne treatment program. Eggs are easy to get and inexpensive. They are also very nutritious for the skin and not harsh at all.
Egg whites can be used all over the face but are most effective at toning the skin. As the egg whites dry, they have mildly astringent properties. They can help to remove surface dirt and to clean out and tone the pores. They also mop up excess sebum on the surface of the skin.
Remember how cool pore strips used to be? Make your own very simply by whisking up some egg whites and applying to your nose. Before is dries, apply a piece of tissue paper to the skin and leave to dry. Then remove – it works the same as a pore strip.
Worried about wasting the egg yolks? Don’t be, the egg yolk can also be used as a mask. Once again, beat the yolk until creamy. Apply to face – avoiding the eyes and mouth. Allow drying – it is dry when it is tough to move your muscles. You should also feel the skin tightening – once this has dried, rinse off and enjoy a radiant new look.
You may need to do this a few times to see noticeable results but it will help in the end. What is nice is that this facial is mild enough to use a few times weekly. If you have acne, you can even use it every alternate day until you see results. It also acts as a spot treatment for acne.
If there are any leftover egg whites and yolks, you can safely keep these separately in covered containers for a maximum of 3 days. Any longer and the eggs become a breeding ground for bacteria. Two eggs usually make enough of both mixtures for two treatments.
