Hey everyone, today I’m going to share a very easy DIY (do-it-yourself) face mask that will help to refine and shrink pores. I’ve oily acne-prone skin with pores and I’ve tried many cosmetic products in the past, but nothing worked like this homemade face mask. I’ve been applying this mask twice a week for more than 2 months now and I’ve seen a noticeable difference in the appearance of my pores. For this DIY recipe, you will need 3 simple ingredients (Apple Cider Vinegar, Egg & Lemon) which are easily available in the kitchen.
Apple Cider Vinegar : ACV is a natural astringent that deeply cleanses the skin and helps clear the skin complexion. It is rich in natural alpha-hydroxy acids and helps to balance the skin’s PH level. It is very effective in fading acne scars, minimizing the appearance of open pores and relieving irritation & redness.
Egg White : It works wonder for oily acne prone skin. It helps to tighten the skin, shrink open pores and leaves the skin glowing and firm.
Lemon : The natural enzymes in the lemon juice help to shrink pores and clear skin complexion.
Method : Separate an egg white from the yolk and beat it for a minute (egg yolk has the tendency to clog pores). Now add 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar and 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice. Mix all the 3 ingredients well and apply this mixture on the clean face.
How I Use this Face Mask : After washing my face with a lukewarm water (lukewarm water helps to open pores), I apply this mask evenly on my face using face pack brush. This face mask has very runny consistency and the use of brush will make application easy and less messy. I leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water followed by a mild face cleanser to get rid of egg odour. It gives a slight tingling sensation when applied on the skin and starts getting hard while drying. After using this DIY mask my skin feels soft, smooth and refreshed with a mild glow. You can see the visible results from the first use itself. I use this DIY face mask twice a week to refine pores and keep my skin firm and free from breakouts. This face mask can be used by both men and women.
I hope this simple DIY face mask will be helpful for the oily skin people. Do let me know your experience in the comments below :)
