Eggs are not just great to eat, they’re also great for skin care. For large pores, you can use eggs to tighten skin.
1.) First, wash your face. 2.) Take 2 eggs and crack them in a small bowl, removing the yolks 3.) Make sure that you use only the egg whites on your skin because the yellow or yolks contain heavy oil and cholesterol. 4.) After removing the yolks, take a small fork or whisk and stir for 1 minute. 5.) Take a small cosmetic brush to use as an applicator. 6.) Take brush, and CAREFULLY spread the eggs on face on forehead, cheeks, nose area, chin, and in areas that you feel are problem pore places – carefully. Be sure to wrap a towel around your neck area to avoid messes. 7.) Leave egg mixture on face for about 10 – 30 minutes or until dry. 8.) After egg mask sets, rinse your face first with “lukewarm” water and not scolding hot water because if the water is too hot, then you will cook the eggs which will result in you having scrambles eggs on your face and that’s not pretty at all! 9.) The rinse with cold water. I recommend getting a clean bowl of cold water and filling it with about 10 ice cubes for a max chill. 10.) Your skin may feel dry. If this happens, add a non oil moisturizer to it. This will tighten and have a closing effect on your pores.
