My family lives a very natural lifestyle. We grow a bevy of fruits and veggies in our backyard garden. We clean our house mostly with vinegar, and most of my skin care regiment consists of items that I find in my kitchen.
I recently noticed a couple of blackheads on my nose—gasp! So instead of buying expensive pore strips at the chemist to remove them, I wanted to make my own DIY pore strips. Not only is this trick a whole lot cheaper, it’s also very natural.
- egg whites: 3
- lemon juice: 1 tsp
- tissue: 1 per strip
Step 1: Separate your egg whites into a bowl and whisk them.
Step 2: Squeeze 1 teaspoon of lemon juice into the egg whites and whisk.
Step 3: Smear some of your mixture onto your nose.
Step 4: Peel a tissue so it’s only one thin layer. Press it onto your nose.
Step 5: Spread more egg/lemon mixture on top of the tissue to saturate it.
Step 6: Wait 15 to 20 minutes or until it hardens. Try not to talk or move your face while you wait.
Step 7: Peel off the tissue and look to see what comes out. Ewww (yet awesome!).
