Beauty Benefits of Egg Whites
Hello ladies, we all know I love to give a long preamble about what prompted each post, but I’m going to just jump into this one. We all know what egg whites are yes? Great! So some of us might think “yuck! I can’t deal”… Trust me, you’re not alone on that.
I’ve got issues with raw eggs too but the benefits to derive in the end outweighs the inconvenience to endure.
So here’s 10 fab tips that’ll have you grabbing the next raw egg you see.
1. Removes facial hair
I used the egg white tissue paper face mask some weeks ago, and when peeling it off, it came along with tiny facial hairs that are normally found on the face. In the end, my skin felt smoother and clearer! Egg white and tissue paper really does help get rid of facial hair no matter where it is – on your forehead, cheeks or upper lip! To make an egg white tissue paper face mask, you simply need to apply a little egg white to your face using a brush. Cut out holes for your eyes and mouth and place the tissue on your face. Coat a thin layer of more egg white on top of the tissue to make it stick. When it has completely dried up, quickly pull off the tissue, which will come along with the hairs. Admire the results! The satisfaction you will get after seeing the tiny facial hairs is unforgettable!
2. Tightens and shrinks large pores
Tighten and close up large pores using egg whites! Egg whites have astringent properties that help shrink pores by tightening the skin.
Mix 1 teaspoon of egg white and 1 squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Apply this onto your whole face or large pore affected areas. Wait for 15 minutes before rinsing off with tepid water.
Pat dry with a soft towel and continue this treatment twice a week.
3. Lifts skin
Egg whites are well known for tightening the skin and you can experience this effect when you put on an egg white face mask as it dries up on your face. Use egg white to lift up sagging cheeks and crinkly skin around the eyes. Gently apply a thin layer of egg white using a clean brush and rinse off after it has dried.
4. Great for reducing oily skin
Due to its skin tightening and pore-minimizing properties, egg whites are especially great for those with overly oily skin. Before applying, first wash your face gently with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel. Coat your face with a thin layer of egg white and let it dry up. Once it has dried, remove the mask by rinsing with cold water.
5. Removes excess scalp oiliness
While using egg whites for skin can be manageable, putting eggs in your hair can be extremely icky especially for those who hate the smell and the slimy feeling! But that shouldn’t put you off as egg white on its own doesn’t stink that bad and it works wonders in drawing out scalp oiliness and greasy hair!
Much like skin pores, egg white works in tightening the hair follicles thereby preventing excess sebum from being secreted onto the scalp.
6. Fights off and prevents acneand acne scars
Acne can be caused by over secretion of sebum onto the skin’s surface. As egg white works amazingly well in controlling oily skin, it can be used to prevent and fight off acne too! However, be careful when applying the egg white on the acne as being harsh can aggravate it. For this reason, do not use a brush and instead use clean finger tips or a q-tip to apply the egg white.
7. Brings shine to a dull hair
Greasy flat and dull hair can be really frustrating especially when you want to style up your hair. But there’s totally no need to worry when you have eggs in the house– just crack an egg, separate the whites, whisk them till frothy and slather it all over your hair. You might want to add a teaspoon of lemon juice if the mask is stinky. Cover your hair with a shower cap to prevent drips and sit back for 10 minutes. When the time is up, rinse off thoroughly and let your hair dry naturally. Your hair will look shiny when dry which is one of the magical properties of egg white!
8. Helps get rid of black heads
This is perhaps the number one beauty trick with egg whites. Egg whites can amazingly draw out sebum and pull out the gunk stuck deep within pores. Again, this has to do with its astringent properties. The egg white tightens the pores which helps naturally squeeze out the black heads by bringing them out of the skin’s surface.
9. Reduces under eye puffiness
Effectively get rid of under eye puffiness and eye bags by gently rubbing egg white underneath your eyes using your index finger. Rinse off thoroughly when it dries up, pat dry with a soft towel and apply coconut oil.
10. Checks wrinkles and fine lines
Since egg whites tighten and lift skin, it is very useful in delaying premature aging caused by fine lines and wrinkles. Try out a simple egg white face mask twice a week to make skin taut and youthful.
