eggy face mask

i realise how gross this sounds and i definitely wasn't too keen on the idea when i first heard about it! but it totally works.  and to prove this I have some sciencey stuffs, so brace yourself.....

eggs contain proteins and amino acids which are present in the body anyway but adding them to skin is what gives us that lovely plump, fresh look and in the case of raw eggs we get a natural temporary face lift when used. they are also great for controling excess oils and constricting the pores. the whites of the egg give our skin a whitening effect due to the pigments conatined in them. so with all these benefits i think we can face how gross it is... just this once.

For this face mask you will need:

one egg (preferably organic)
2 bowls
a fork

  1. start by cracking open your egg and seperaing the yolk and egg white. you do that by carefully sliding the yolk between the two pieces of shell , draining the egg whites into one of the bowls .
  2. once all the egg white is seperated out put the egg yolk into the other bowl. you should now have one bowl containing egg whites and the other the egg yolk.
  3. now take your fork and beat the egg whites hard until they become all frothy and you can see bubbles on the surface.
  4. the face mask is ready! ensure your face is clean of all make up and take two fingers and dip them into the egg white. apply evenly all over the face avoiding the eye area.
  5. now leave this for a few minutes. you'll know its done because you won't be able to move your face! i like to do the smile test with my face masks to be sure. so try to smile and if you can't then its ready to remove using warm water.
now what should we do with the yolks? egg yolk is a great natural moisturiser and all you have to do is take a fork and prick it open, then take a small amount and apply evenly over you face. use the smile test to check when its done, then remove it using warm water.

and there you have it two face treatments with only one ingredient :) and you have the bonus of being able to use any left over face mask to make yourself a yummy breakfast!

have you got any other homemade remedies?
