How to use egg whites to treat acne at home

Acne is a common disease that usually occurs when the oily sebaceous glands of our skin oversecrete the oily sebum to traps dust and other dirt.

There are a lot of cosmetics products that temporal cure acne and most of them have side effects of their own.

Kitchen ingredients such eggs and honey are best for treating acne at home.  Egg white is full of vitamins, amino acids and proteins that help in re-building the skin cells by soaking up the excess oil.

It contains an enzyme called Lysozyme which annihilates the acne causing bacteria. Egg white, when applied on the skin, dries quickly, cleanses the skin and absorbs the excess oil.

Ingredients

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon almond oil
