How to use egg whites to treat acne at home

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.
