Hmmm…So I’m trying to get my skin to behave. I’ve been trying everything: I’ve used Body Shop Tea Tree products, and that’s helped calm down the oil on my face, but I’m still getting the occasional breakout. I’m using Arbonne’s FC5 cell-renewing scrub a few times a week and using FC5 oil-absorbing sunscreen during the day. I switched to Arbonne foundation.
I remember hearing once that putting egg on your face would do wonders for your skin, as in, just a plain ol’ egg. Have you ever heard of this? What other suggestions do you have?
I’m drinking a ton of water, getting good rest, don’t smoke, work out, trying not to touch my face.

I used egg whites for a facial once a few years ago and it definitely tightened up and dried out my oily face! I can’t say if it worked long term for blemishes, but it felt great when I finished!
P.S. Shout-out to another Arbonne user! I love their products!

Yes..I have heard about egg whites
Also.I remeber over a decade ago Oprah had a lady on who talked about putting "Milk if Magnesium" (sp?) on as a mask
I am not sure what it is about it.but it is supposed to be really good

My mom does this…I think she mixes egg white with some milk and claims it does great things for the skin =). I haven’t tried it myself though!

The lactic acid in milk is an amazing exfoliant! Also I use the refining mask from proactive. The whole line dries out my skin but just the mask will work wonders for me! For oily skin make sure you moisturize. if you overdry your skin it will overcompensate and then the cycle begins… Also omega 3 fish oil. you can eat the fish, or take capsules or spoons of the oil. in like a month you will see your skin and hair SO much healthier! Good Luck!

I don’t know, but I’ve been taking swigs of Flax seed oil for the past or 2 three weeks and I’m loving how awasome my face looks.

Don’t laugh..if you ever have bags under your eyes or your eyes are super puffy and tired looking, put a teeny bit of preparation h on the area..(teeny amount). I learned this silly (but it works!) trick when in my state Miss America pageant!

Hi! I loooove an egg mask. Here is exactly what I do:
I seperate the egg white and egg yolk into two seperate small bowls. Into the egg whites I put a generous squeeze of honey – I’ve never measured. I leave the egg yolk plain.
Apply the egg white mask, I usually keep the egg yolk in the fridge so that it stays fresh while I’m applying the white. I also use a small soft paint brush to brush it on my face. One the first layer is dried, I usually will apply different layers until I’m bored and want to wash it off. I usually last 20 minutes.
I clean my skin of the egg white, and I apply the egg yolk, in layers like I did w/ the white. I leave it for around 20 minutes. Than wash!
I looove the egg mask for days after hard partying the night before. It makes your skin glow and takes away dark circles and puffyness.

Try Witch Hazel. Not the kind you buy at walgreens because it has alcohol in it. It has a ton of amazing properties.. here is an article
Some people do use the normal kind from the drugstore (with isopropyl alcohol) and have no problems. I’ve tried it though and it dries my skin out. I have kind of dry skin already though so maybe it would be ok if you have oily skin.
