Do you have oily skin? Are you suffering from acne? Oily can not be a discomfort to the individual but also makes one look untidy. Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin’s surface. Sebum is an oily substance made of fats. Sebum isn’t all bad since it helps protect and moisturize your skin and keep your hair shiny and healthy.
Too much sebum, however, may lead to oily skin, which can lead to clogged pores and acne. Genetics, hormone changes, or even stress may increase sebum production. Oily skin and acne are challenging to manage. Still, home remedies often reduce symptoms without the use of prescription drugs or expensive skincare regimens. Here is a remedy for oily skin you can try at home.
- Egg white – one tablespoon
- Lemon juice – one tablespoon
- Take one tablespoon of both egg white and lemon juice and mix it in a bowl. Take a clean cotton pad and dip it in the bowl.
- Apply this on the face in a circular motion and leave in for 10 minutes. Rinse out with lukewarm water and gentle soap.
Why it Works:
Shrink the pores of your skin by applying a mix of egg white and fresh lemon juice all over your face.
Egg white contains beneficial proteins that can increase skin hydration, destroy the bacteria that causes acne, and provide temporary anti-ageing benefits, such as tightening the skin and plumping fine lines and wrinkles.
Lemon juice reduces sebum due to the drying effects of citric acid. Reduce redness and inflammation that may help treat inflammatory acne as well as leftover scars.
