Possibly the easiest beauty trick of all time? Kendall Jenner recently revealed the secret behind her flawless complexion via her website: a mask made from two ingredients you already have in your kitchen.
In a video posted to kendallj.com, Vogue‘s September cover girl, 20, dished that she DIYs her own acne-fighting mask with just half a lemon and egg whites.
As the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explained, she carefully separates the white of one egg from the yolk and whisks until it’s frothy. She then adds the juice from the lemon and mixes again. Jenner then applies it all evenly to her face, wears it for 30 minutes and rinses it off — and that’s it.
As she explains in the video, she uses egg white and lemon because the former can help shrink pores while the latter can balance pH levels. (FYI: The more acidic your skin is, the more likely you are to break out.)
It’s no wonder the Estée Lauder brand ambassador is sharing the mask on her app, as she has long talked about her struggle with acne, especially when she first hit puberty. “Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it,” Jenner wrote via her app last October. “It completely ruined my self-esteem. I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face.”
Jenner was proactive and sought help from dermatologist Dr. Christie Kidd, but she also found a way to love her skin no matter what. “Even after things started to clear up, it took a solid amount of time to be okay with my skin and gain back my confidence,” she said. “I realized that it’s a part of life for some people and it doesn’t define who you are.”
