Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin’s surface. Sebum is an oily substance made of fats. Sebum isn’t all bad since it helps protect and moisturize your skin and keep your hair shiny and healthy. Too much sebum, however, may lead to oily skin, which can lead to clogged pores and acne.
Egg whites and lemons are a folk remedy for oily skin. Both ingredients are thought to tighten pores. The acid in lemons and other citrus fruits may help absorb oil. This is not a good choice for people with egg allergies.
1) Combine 1 egg white with 1 teaspoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice.
2) Apply it to your face, and leave it on until the mask dries.
3) Remove with warm water, and pat dry.
