Natural Acne Mask

Today I wanted to share a new type of skin care I've recently been testing out. It's home made masks with ingredients most of you should have at home in your cupboard! 

The mask I made today consisted of 1 egg white, 1/2 small lemon and 1/2 teaspoon honey. 

The ingredients in this mask are packed full of nutrients which are really beneficial to your skin. Eggs promote radiance, hydration and also have anti-ageing properties in them. Lemon helps fight bacteria, acne and helps to brighten skin, giving a more radiant appearance. Honey is great for sensitive skin and eliminates fine lines. It also prevents skin dehydration and brightens dull, discoloured skin. 
To make the mask, you simply add the three ingredients together and whisk up a little until the mixture starts to froth. Take a couple of cotton rounds, dip in and begin wiping on your face. I leave on for a couple of minutes until it dries, then wash off with warm water and pat dry. 

My skin immediately feels refreshed, clean, hydrated and brighter and Ill continue to use this mask on a weekly basis since the results have been so promising! It's got to be better than using harsh products on your skin right?! 

Give it a go - it's amazing how many natural products we already have at home that are of great benefit to the skin.
