A super simple egg white face mask
An egg white face mask doesn’t sound that appealing does it? Especially if you were you one of those kids that preferred to eat the yolk over the whites. I absolutely hated eating the egg white and would often sprinkle a bit of salt on the yolks…yum!
However as you grow older and wiser, you realize the many benefits the egg whites have to offer. Egg whites are great for tightening and toning skin. They are also a god sent for people with oily skin as they shrink away large pores on the skin surface thereby reducing excess sebum.
Egg whites also contain an ingredient called Lysozyme.
Lysozyme is an enzyme widely distributed in plants and animals that plays an important role in the prevention of bacterial infections. When applied to skin, it helps to kill acne-causing bacteria by digesting their cell walls.
Still no convinced by the power of the egg white? How about a few more reasons to change your mind –
Egg whites contain protein which facilities in tissue repair and growth thereby promoting strong , wrinkle free skin.
Egg whites preserve moisture in skin cells.
Egg whites eliminate toxic and cell-damaging free radicals that create wrinkles.
Egg whites help to slow down the ageing process giving the appearance of youthful and radiant skin.

First up you need to separate the whites from the yolk. This is how I tend to do it.
Crack the egg, then using the shells, transfer the yolk from one shell to another. Keep on doing this whilst placing the egg white in a bowl. At the end of the day if you have done this correctly, then you will be left with just the yolk in the shell and the whites in the bowl.
Once you have the egg white, use a fork or blender to beat it well. The egg whites should end up looking like foam and upon doing so you would have created your homemade egg white face mask.
Apply the egg white on your face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. When you feel the egg white tightening up, gently remove it with a cloth soaked in warm water.
This simple face mask will make your skin super fresh with minimal amount of effort!
