Egg white face mask
Egg White Face Mask
Has the humble egg got the answer to youthful skin? well maybe not the long lost answer we have all been striving for BUT studies have shown that egg whites have some amazing ingredients that our skin will love.
Egg proteins can contribute in maintaining the elasticity of skin, they contains about 69 different types of protein and these are key for skin structure, collagen being a protein.
They are high in Vitamin A a key skin health ingredient.
Full of magnesium which is good for slowing skin ageing and potassium for hydration and moisture.
They also has pore tightening effects and skin toning properties.
If you’re going to try an at home egg face mask, mix or whisk the eggs first, it helps the mask stay on your face !
You can try it on its own for a tightening mask or try mixing with natural yogurt, honey or a touch of lemon juice if you have slightly oily skin.
Being left with egg on your face is not as bad as it sounds!
