20 Minutes away to glowing skin
As every girl knows, once we become aware of our skincare problems, they slowly start to take over our lives. As we leave our beloved teens and early twenties we realize - sometimes painfully, that having a consistent and effective skincare regimen is crucial. I can't tell you how much money I have wasted on products that claim to do one thing and end up doing absolutely nothing but dry my skin out. I paid more attention to what was popular and familiar then to what was in those lengthy ingredient lists. This 3 ingredient face mask is truly a miracle as it brightens your skin, reduces the appearance of scars, tightens and moisturises at the same time and is 100% natural.
You Will Need:
Egg whites (from one egg)
1 tsp Fresh lemon juice (use less if your skin is very sensitive)
1 - 2 tsp Raw, natural honey (depending on how dry your skin is)
Each one of these simple ingredients brings with it several skincare benefits. The egg whites help improve elasticity in your skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Egg whites are also a great way to shrink those hard to handle pores that we all know too well.
Lemon juice has tons of antibacterial properties that aid in skincare problems associated with acne and ageing. I used to get random breakouts all the time from lack of sleep, stress or let's face it - late nights drinking. I also had a terrible habit of picking at these random breakouts which has now left me with scars. Not only does adding lemon juice to my face mask help with any oiliness I may have or treating blackheads - it has significantly brightened my skin and lightened and my scarring.
Last but not least, Raw Honey will draw more moisture into your skin and help retain it more so than say - coconut oil. Yes I said it. Just like lemon juice, raw honey contains many antibacterial properties that help to heal skin and maintain a healthy glow.
These measurements are just a simple guideline but tweak this recipe anyway you'd like to fit your unique skin care needs. Regimens need to be tailored to specific needs because everyone's skin is different and what works for your best friend may not work at all for you. Trust me though, this one is a keeper. Thanks for the read and let me know what you guys think after you've given it a try :)
