How I naturally tightened my skin and shrunk my pores in 3 weeks!!

So I do work a lot and work late into the mornings and nights at times. And now living in Miami, FL I am exposed to sun a lot more. Never really took my skin regiment seriously until I started to notice my face aging rapidly . My diet didn’t help either. I was eating a lot of fast food because I didn’t have time to cook with running the store, websites, doing makeup and trying to edit tutorials. Also I just turned 28 . So I decided to do a comparison of how fast my face was aging over the past 4 years and I started to cry, literally . I didn’t want to get old or at least look like it and I’m still in my 20’s . So instead of continuously crying; which might I add increases wrinkles and puffiness under the eyes, I decided to look up a healthy way to tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, shrink pores, and bring vibrancy back to my face.

What You will Need:

Face Cleansing Steps (I use this wash regimen daily regardless of applying my mask after or not):

  1. washed my face with a mix of Cetaphil Facial Cleanser and Neutrogena Pore Refining Daily Cleanser.
  2. Wet Your Face with warm water NOT Cold. When using cold water it will close your pores and the product will not be able to penetrate below the surface of your skin as well as with warm water.
  3. I take both products and put 1 pump of each in my hand and proceeded to apply it to my face
  4. Apply the product all over your face
  5. Take your exfoliating brush wet it and put 1 pump of each product onto the brush.
  6. Take the brush and proceed to gentility wash your face it will feel awkward at first use but then you will get use to it. Keep Washing with brush for about 1minute.
  7. Next rinse your face with WARM WATER.
  8. Pat dry with a towel.

NOW WE WILL MOVE ON TO CREATING YOUR FACIAL MASK

Step 1:

-Mix about 6 caps full of egg whites, 2 caps of lemon juice , 3 caps of water and 2 caps of apple cider into your mixing dish or a small bowl.

Step 2:

-Take your cotton swab (q-tip) and mix the product completely

Step 3:

-Take 1-2 cotton balls and soak completely into your mix

Step 4:

– Take the cotton ball and apply all over your face. Please be careful around your eye area dont forget there is vinegar in your mix and getting it into your eyes might burn. If you are a little nervous of your eye area you can use the cotton swabs (q-tips) to get close under and around the eye for better placement.

Step 5:

-Let the product sit on your face until it dries completely. You will then see an extremely tight and shiny film on your face.

Step 6:

-Rinse product completely off face with WARM water and pat dry with towel.

Step 7:

-Moisturize face with your choice of daily moisturizer. I used a dime size of Cetephil moisturizer first and then I re-moisturized over that with my Jergens Natural Glow for the face. The Jergens to me is a must have. It evened out my skin tones and it brought color back to my face.

How often can I apply?:

-2-3 times a week or whenever you feel as though you need a refresh so everyday honestly but I did it 2-3 times a week.
