Egg On Your Face

We all know the incredible, edible egg is good for you, but did you know it is also good for your face?  Egg whites can be considered "natures face lift," or as I like to call it: "Botox in a shell".  The result of using egg white on your face is a tightening of the skin. It is an instant result that can last for days.

It will have an amazing affect on your complexion and has been known to reduce the appearance of breakouts and shrink the pores.

The yolk of the egg is a natural moisturizer. It will leave your skin soft and glowing.

Okay, now here are some need-to-knows: 

You do not want to do this mask on a daily basis. I personally like to do it every two weeks. Everything in moderation.

If you have an egg allergy do not do this!  It may cause a rash on your face, and that won't be pretty. But other than that, give it a try and you may like it.

Okay, let's get down to business. What you will need is an egg, two bowls, and a fork. First, separate the egg white from the yolk into the bowls. Take your fork and whip the whites until little bubbles start to form. 

Now take your fingers and apply the egg white to your face. Make sure you don't get it in your eyes. Wait ten minutes while it dries.

Important note: no drinking, laughing, or talking for the ten minutes. You do not want the egg to crack.

After ten minutes, wash it off. Use warm water and a wash cloth to scrub the egg white off your face, and dry your skin with a clean towel.

After Egg White Mask. You will notice the skin on your face feels tighter.

Now for the yolk. Take your fork and break up the yolk. Dip your fingers in and smear away. Always remembering to avoid getting it in your eyes! 

Leave it on for ten minutes, and again, no drinking, laughing, or talking. Then scrub it off with warm water and a wash cloth, and dry your face with a clean towel. At this point I like to finish with my favorite moisturizer.

After Egg Yolk Mask. Note: I am not wearing make up.

You should notice your skin has tightened and has a soft glow to it.  I love how my skin feels after doing this mask. And if you think you don't have time to do a mask you are mistaken. It is so quick and easy I call it my multitasking me time. I will do my mask while I am doing house work. Two birds, one stone! Give it a try and tell me what you think.

And Always,
Stay Fabulous

    You know I'm a fan of botox...but I really did try this and it works rather well. Of course I have botox so its hard to tell lol but well....also, can't you get some sort of poisoning from eggs? Most good face stuff is poison!
