Let’s talk about natural beauty treatments and homemade facial masks. One of the greatest beauty ingredients is almost constantly ‘living’ in our fridge. It’s an egg!
Egg is a wonderful and natural product that can be used for skincare. And, actually, facial masks with the use of an egg are very effective!
Egg whites help brighten up and tighten the skin, while egg yolks are rich in vitamin A, pure proteins and nutrients!
In this post we want to share with you five homemade, effective facial masks with the use of an egg:
1) Egg facial
First egg mask is very simple. No need of other ingredients – just apply one yolk of an egg on your clean face and when it’s half dry (in about 5 minutes), wash it off with lukewarm water. Your skin will be nourished, and will become very soft and hydrated. It’s good to make this face mask once in a while, when you don’t have time for complicated treatments and when you’re after quick results.
2) Egg, plain cream and carrot juice face mask
Here is another homemade face mask with the use of wonderful natural ingredients: mix one egg yolk with a tablespoon of thick plain cream and add a tablespoon of freshly made carrot juice. Apply this mask to your face for about 5-10 minutes and then, wash it off with warm, and then cold water. Your face will feel refreshed and nourished; the contrasting water rinse at the end will help tone your skin and stimulate blood circulation.
3) Egg white and corn flour facial treatment
Here is another homemade facial mask recipe, which is very simple to make, yet very effective: mix a tablespoon of corn flour with one egg white. Apply it to your skin and leave it on until the mask is alsmost dry (about 5 minutes). Wash your face with warm and then, cold water (warm and cold water contrast helps stimulate blood circulation in your skin, and also, cold water splashes at the end of facial treatments help close pores). This mask will cleanse your skin and will make your pores less visible.
4) Evening facial treatment with egg yolk and olive oil
Here is another very simple, hydrating homemade facial mask, which can be done before bed time: take one egg yolk, mix it with a tablespoon of olive oil (olive oil is very beneficial for your skin, but we will talk about it more in depth in another article) and apply this mask to your face and neck. Cover it up with slightly warmed up towel (make holes for your eyes and nose in your towel), in 5-10 minutes wash your face and neck with warm water. Your skin will say: ‘Thank you!’
5) Honey, wheat flour and egg white face mask
And here is the last variation of egg face mask: mix one egg white with a tablespoon of wheat flour and a teaspoon of honey. Apply this mask to your face and wash it off in 5-10 minutes. Your skin will feel very soft and velvety. And the best part – it’s all natural!
