But before we dive into the directions, there are a few things you need to know.
If you have severe and inflamed acne, 1/2 teaspoon of the mix is enough for your face mask as a lot of lemon juice can irritate and burn skin. If your acne is mild, 1 teaspoon will help clear the pimples.
Good enough, you don’t have to throw excess face mask mixture away instantly. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. But if it starts smelling funky though, don’t use it anymore and toss it in the trash.
When applied, if at all the face mask starts burning your face severely, quickly rinse your face with cold water and apply honey to cool down any redness and burning sensation.
Now, the ingredients include the following:
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 or 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (see tips to determine how much is right for your skin)
Once these are available, here are the steps to follow:
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy.
- Stir in the freshly squeezed lemon juice.
- Gently massage the face mask onto your clean face with circular motions. Let it dry for 10 to 15 minutes.
- When the time is up, rinse the mask off with tepid water. Pat your face dry with a towel.
