Creating your own homemade facial is a cheap and completely natural way of preventing breakouts. I can't recommend this one enough, although putting eggs on your face is not the most glamorous of exercises the benefits outweigh the smells.

Research shows:
Lemon Juice; diminishes scars and can help fade hyper pigmentation. Due to its natural antibacterial properties that makes it a good choice to help cure acne and prevent breakouts. Using lemon juice on blackheads can reduce the frequency and severity.  It is also a natural exfoliant since the citric acid acts as a gentle ''skin peel' removing the top layer of dead skin cells.

Egg Whites help to tighten the skin and shrink pores. They contribute to maintaining elasticity in the skin and can reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Raw Honey also helps to prevent breakouts and it is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.

2 Egg Whites
2 Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons of raw honey

1. Place all ingredients in a bowl
2. Whisk
3. Wash and dry your face
4. Spread mixture all over face with small brush or fingers
5. Leave for 15-30 minutes
6. Rinse the mask off with warm water
7. Splash your face with cold water and pat dry

Whats your favourite homemade facial?

(Although my posts since I started blogging have been predominately fashion, I really would like to broaden what 'electrikflowers' is really about. I recently added an question box on my sidebar as I had a great idea of starting possibly an agony aunt series. When I was younger I was the biggest fan of magazines like mizz and shout and I used to love reading through the agony aunt pages and seeing what other girls were dealing with. So... during the week feel free to ask me anything! Whether it is about myself, you need advice or anything else and on Sundays I will answer your questions here on my blog and you can even ask them anonymously.


  1. thanks for the tip! the diy facial sounds amazing.

  2. This is awesome! I want to try this out. I have heard of recipes like this for masks, but I have been kind of wary putting egg whites on my face. I'm interested to know what kind of results you had to it personally? :)



    1. It worked wonders for me personally made my skin really soft and glowy and fought any zits but my mum said that the protein albumin in the egg whites makes her skin react so I don't think it may be for everyone.

  3. im so scared to try this. my skin is super sensitive
