  1. For the healthy skin, egg not only makes the pores to get hard, infect it also collects the better food for the skin. The egg white is over flowing with protein content and it is a natural cleanser to make skin healthy. After getting tired of whole day work for the reduction of tiredness, beat the egg and apply on the face and neck then lay on a bed for about 20 minutes. This is the best Acne Treatment.
