Egg White Mask:

Everybody has got eggs in their kitchen and therefore egg whites are the most affordable way to get rid of acne and the scar as well. Eggs are enriched with vitamins and protein that do not only help in regenerating skin cells but also deeply cleanse the pores. They also take away all the excess oil from the skin which is the major cause of acne.


Take a few tissues and 2 to 3 egg whites in a bowl. Start applying the egg white to the face and stick the tissue over it. Then apply another layer of egg white and stick more tissue to make a hard cover over the skin. Let it dry completely and then peel the cover off the face. You will see how the cover soaks up all the dirt and excess oil and leave your skin smooth. Wash your face and apply a tad bit of gel moisturizer to the skin if it feels too dry.

Papaya to the Rescue:

Papaya is used in many skin care products today but when you have it raw at your home, why not take the benefit and save the money? Raw papaya works wonders for removing the dead skin cells and making it smoother than ever. Papaya also consists of an enzyme known as papain that helps in reducing inflammation and preventing infection.


Cleanse your face properly. Blend some papaya flesh to make it easier to apply on the skin. Apply it with your fingers and leave it to dry for 20 minutes. Wash your face and apply a toner to the skin.

Orange Peel Mask:

Oranges have the amazing capability to rejuvenate the skin and leave it refreshed. They are full of vitamin C that helps in building new skin cells and making the skin more radiant. Therefore, it makes a great face mask for a glowing skin as well.


Take orange peels and blend them well in a blender. Add water or milk while blending to turn them into a thick paste. Take it out and apply it your face and leave it to dry for 30 minutes. Scrub it off once dry and rinse your face with water. Apply a tad bit of non-greasy moisturizer to prevent the skin from drying out.
