i've never heard of the egg trick... interesting. i wonder why?

maybe it's a not-often discussed solution because the person wearing might be tired of hearing from someone "there's egg on your face!" like it's the funniest thing in the world for the 100th time in 5 minutes.

Egg whites are rich in protein and help rebuild and heal your skin and also has a 'drying' effect on oilyness, i believe. i've done it a couple of times and it definitely feels good against your skin!

Awesome Post, cute drawing XD

Aspirins! Crummy but soothing.

Heard of that tip, too. Thank you!

Don't apply toothpaste or garlic on your face. And I mean it. DON'T DO IT! It will burn and dry out your skin, causing yourself way more troubles than you already have with acne. I used them both and got myself a face full of "cute" dry, sore and itchy patches. And they healed after a month....people used to call me scar face by that time. A honey, cinnamon and/or coffee mask might help. Or egg whites with a few drops of lemon juice , yolks, yogurt....or aspirin.
