    • Hello Balaraji…….. u cn use this remedy, Take one egg white, then use cotton ball to apply egg white on your skin. Leave for 20 min or until it gets dry then wash using warm water. It also helps to reduce oiliness and makes your pores tight. Apply this mask daily for 2 months to get best results.
