Instead of spending money to get factory-made anti-acne products, you can use natural household food to make a mask. An egg white and oatmeal mask can help clear acne, reduce red spots, moisturize and tighten the skin. It is an all natural skin-clearing face mask that is easy to make at home. Acne breakouts can severely hinder your self-image with zits and leftover scars. A good skin-clearing face mask will tighten pores and reduce the rate of breakouts.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. oatmeal powder
  • Honey
  • Spoon
  • Bowl
  • Mask brush
  • Soap
  • Water

Separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Crack the egg open, and let the egg white pour into a bowl. Prevent the egg yolk from slipping through. Make sure most of the egg white is poured out. Dispose of the egg yolk and eggshell.

Add 1 tablespoon of oatmeal powder and a few drops of honey. These ingredients will moisturize your skin. The egg whites will dry your skin. Hydrating your skin with oatmeal and honey will prevent your skin from over-drying and producing excess sebum. Skin producing excess sebum due to over-drying is a leading cause of acne.

Mix the egg whites, oatmeal powder and honey with a spoon until they are a paste.

Wash your face and hands with soap and water. You do not want to apply the skin-clearing face mask with filthy hands onto a dirty face.

Apply the egg white and oatmeal mask onto your face with a mask brush. You will apply it all over your face except for the eye and lip area. Leave on the mask for 15 to 20 minutes.

Rinse off the mask with warm water. Your face will look clear, brighter and tighter.
