I struggle with having large pores and the older I get the bigger my pores are getting. I exfoliate regularly but my skin always maintains a dull and rough look, which I give thanks to having large pores. It was mentioned on Pinterest that egg whites could be used as a pore reducing treatment! Is my dream of having small pores almost reality?!
The original Pinner instructions to smaller pores using egg whites said
“Egg white is very good to cure large skin pores. To use an egg white mask, remove the yolk from an egg and apply the remaining egg white on your face. Leave the egg white on your face to get hard. It will take 15-20 minutes for better results. Wash off your face with cool water to keep the pores smaller and cold. Using egg white you will also get a smooth skin.”
I followed the directions, placing one egg white in a bowl and used one of my kid’s easel paintbrushes to apply the egg whites to my face.
I honestly dreaded applying the egg wash to my pores. The thought of snotty egg whites on my face just did not seem like fun. But I was wrong. Initially the liquid was cool and felt refreshing. Once the egg whites began to dry it was like a girdle for my face. I wondered if the tightening feeling of the egg wash was how it would feel to have botox or a face lift as it was difficult to give a full smile. But I strangely liked it!
After 15 minutes I rinsed my face as the instructions said, with cool water. My face was free again!
Immediately I could tell my face was really smooth. I loved it. But the real test to this homemade pore reducing treatment came when I found a mirror to check my pore size.
Upon my first inspection I was disappointed, thinking my pores were the same size. But when I compared my before and after pictures I was pleased to see a significant improvement. I am going to share my before and after pictures with you, as much as it pains me to put this on the internet…
