Oily skin is very common and sometimes easy to eliminate. Unfortunately, some have more problems with it than others. If you are prone to oily skin, you know that shine that comes up when you least expect it, there are things that you can do without having to spend a fortune at the beauty counter. There is a very effective DIY beauty mask that uses egg whites and lemon juice that takes very little time to apply and will take away that excess oil.
Egg whites are great for fighting oily skin because they shrink pores and help to tighten skin. This egg white mask is easy to make and takes only 2 ingredients:
1 large egg – you will need to separate the white from the yolk
3 to 4 drops of lemon juice – fresh juice is recommended
To begin, just separate your egg and place the white in a bowl. Add the fresh lemon juice and use a wire whisk to gently blend the two ingredients. After you have washed and dried your face, rinse with warm water and then just apply the mask to your face by dipping your fingers into the mixture and gently rubbing it all over in an upward circular motion.
The mask needs to dry for at least 15 minutes. You will know when it is finished because it will become a bit hard and completely dry. Just rinse with warm water and then use a moisturizer that is designed for oily skin.
Another great oily skin treatment is to simply add a few drops of lemon juice into a bowl filled with boiling water. Just hold your face over the bowl so that the steam can open your pores. You can place a towel over your head so that none of the steam escapes. Hold your head over the steam for as long as you can or until the steam dissipates and then simply wash your face with face wash designed to treat oily skin and rinse with warm water followed by cold water to close up your pores.
