Your skin comes in contact with pollution, dirt and environmental aggressors on a daily basis. Regular cleansing and exfoliating only removes surface dirt and oil. To get rid of the deep-set dirt you need something more powerful, that can easily draw out impurities settled in the pores.
A peel off mask is one of the easiest and best ways to deep cleanse your facial skin. These masks also help with many skin issues such as blackheads and make your skin look brighter. They also promote blood circulation, thereby giving your face a fresh and supple look.
A DIY peel off mask is easy to make and requires just the basic ingredients, here’s how you can make your own.
You will need:
- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- Tissue paper
How to use:
Step 01: Separate the egg white from the yolk in a bowl.
Step 02: Add a spoonful of lemon juice and mix well.
Step 03: Apply evenly all over face, except the eye area.
Step 04: Gently press a single, thin layer of tissue on your face.
Step 05: Apply some more egg white mixture on top of the tissue to hold it in place.
