Blackheads (open comedones) are hair follicles that have a wider opening than normal. These follicles are filled with sebum and dead cells. Because of the reactions to melanin, the substance clogged in pores turns black.
The first things you need to get rid of acne is perseverance and patience. There is no miracle cure to make the effects overnight. This process can only work from the inside out using special cleaning agents that help control bacteria on the skin that removes excess dead cells.
Treatment and prevention of acne is based on helping the body to regulate the secretion of the sebaceous glands to make them produce less sebum. The process must be accompanied by good skin hygiene limiting inflammation resulting from the mixture of sebum, dead cells and bacteria.
Please note that acne is and is not caused by certain foods or “dirty” skin.
Moreover, many substances used for facial cleansers, especially those that include oils or that contain nuts or other exfoliating agents, may do more harm than good, depositing “clogging agents” in skin and making the skin more sensitive against bacterial infections.
Lemon juice is a powerful ingredient to remove sebum and bacteria, cleaning blackheads, closing the pores. Egg white light up the skin, providing “lifting” facial effect and rejuvenation.
This mask should be applied after we clean the face and should not be used if the same day another mask was applied.
Ingredients: one egg white, one teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. In a small bowl mix the two ingredients. Apply the mixture on the entire face, avoiding the eyes and eyelids gently.
If you feel that is not enough, you can apply two coats. Keep the mask on your face for 20-25 minutes.
You will feel the mask is ready to be removed when it dries and tightens. Peel it, simply with your fingers. Remove it with a chamomile-based astringent.
