If you have oily skin or are prone to break-outs, then face creams and masks may possibly help to clear up your pores. There’s no need to purchase pricey skin products; natural ingredients and foods such as eggs, vinegar and cucumbers can do the trick. Eggs help to remove oil; vinegar is an antiseptic and can unclog pores; and cucumbers act as an anti-inflammatory, removing excess water, puffiness and redness from your skin. Does this Spark an idea?
Crack an egg into a bowl. Beat with a fork until the yolk and whites are mixed together.
Peel a cucumber and cut it into small chunks. Use the back of a spoon to smash the cucumber chunks into a thick paste. Add 3 tablespoons of cucumber paste to the bowl with the egg.
Pour 1/4 cup of rice vinegar into the bowl with the other ingredients. Mix well with a spoon.
Apply the homemade cream to your face with clean fingers. Rub it in using a circular motion.
Allow the mask to sit on your face for 20 minutes. Rinse off the cream using warm water and a clean washcloth. Apply a moisturizer to your skin that does not contain oil.
