Anywhoo, I am here to let you into a secret that top models have known for years but has been looked down by most people. So you want to look 10 years younger? You want those pores tighten up to infinity and beyond? You want the nasty blackheads and whiteheads gone? If your answers were yes, then grab a chair for a few minutes, read this article (and watch the video below) then run into your kitchen and your toilet and get cracking.
KITCHEN? TOILET? What is the correlation? Keep reading folks…..This secret of supermodels is a very simple recipe. You need two items….Are you ready? Okay….here it is…..Egg white and Tissue paper…….What?! I know, right! When I first heard about it, I said ‘these people are super crazy’. Then I tried it…. I have been knocking my head since (almost 3 years ago). I was like…. Where has this secret been all my life?
So here is how you apply the mask. You use a foundation brush (I have one dedicated to my mask application) to apply a good coating of the egg white (you don’t need a lot and you can whisk it before application if you desire) on your face. Divide the tissue paper into 1 ply (into 2 if it is a 2 ply tissue or 3 if it is a 3 ply tissue) and place on your face. Cut out the portion that is too long or that covers your eyes, mouth and nostrils. Avoid placing on your hairline or eyebrows. Apply another coating on the tissue paper to make sure it stays in place. Work in sections and repeat the procedure all over your face (Watch the video below to understand better).
Allow the mask to dry for about 30 minutes then peel gently in an upward direction to help mechanically remove the blackheads and whiteheads from your pores. You would feel that your face is tighter and smoother. And that is it! Simple and easy and I believe it costs less than 50 naira (you use just a little bit of the egg white and very little of the tissue).
Egg white contains one of the purest forms of protein. Egg white is said to be able to help fight acne, reduce lines around the mouth, reduce wrinkles and even rejuvenate the skin. It helps to improve skin elasticity and the tones the skin. It is included in the egg white facial treatments that are offered by a lot of spas and beauty parlors around the world (who would charge you an arm and a leg for it). It is popular because it does not contain harsh chemicals and acids. A lot of people who have sensitive skin are known to choose egg white masks instead of masks with products like retinol and alpha hydroxyl acid.
