Today’s post is about the incredible beauty benefits of egg whites. As most of us may already know, including eggs in our diet can go a long way in enhancing the texture and quality of the skin. However, there are many benefits that you can reap through the topical application of egg white. Right from removing blackheads and even facial hair, egg whites also give you the long-term benefits of preventing wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of premature ageing.
Let’s take a look at the multiple beauty benefits that egg whites offer. In all the following recipes, make sure to use raw egg whites.
1. Gets rid of facial hair:
Egg whites are famously used in DIY face mask recipes to get rid of unwanted facial hair. Crack open an egg, separate the egg white and apply it to the parts of your face where you want to get rid of the hair (using something like a flat foundation brush). Apply a facial tissue onto your face to cover the egg white applied on your face. Apply another layer of egg white on top of it using the same brush. Repeat this process a few times (3-4 times) until you get a nice and thick layer of egg white and tissue. Wait until completely dry and then gently peel it off. This will get rid of your facial hair.
2. Removes blackheads and whiteheads:
Cleanse your face with lukewarm water and follow the procedure (described above) on the parts of your face that have blackheads or whiteheads, such as your nose. Egg white contains astringent and exfoliating properties, which help control sebum and draw out the impurities from the skin. This method of a peel face mask will help remove blackheads and whiteheads and also prevent acne.
3. Prevents premature ageing:
Egg whites are known for their firming and lifting properties on the skin. All you need to do is cleanse your skin and apply a layer of egg white using a flat foundation brush. Let this dry for about 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with cool water. You will find that your skin feels firm and youthful. Regular application will prevent wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of premature ageing, and will go a long way in giving your face a lifted and youthful look.
4. Shrinks and tightens pores:
Egg whites are a great beauty solution for oily skin. Mix a little bit of lemon juice into an egg white and apply the mixture to your face. Rinse off when dry. This will instantly reduce and tighten your pores, will control sebum and lend your face a matte and nourished finish.
5. Reduces puffiness under the eyes:
In addition to its firming and lifting properties, egg whites are also great for reducing puffiness under the eyes. All you need to do is take a little bit of egg white and gently apply it to the area underneath your eyes. Let it dry and gently rinse it off. Once that is done, finish it off with a little bit of coconut oil under your eyes. This will reduce puffiness and darkness under your eyes, while keeping the delicate area smooth and nourished.
6. Prevents acne breakouts and scarring:
Because of the high protein content in egg whites, they help rebuild and renew the skin cells. This is especially useful for blemished skin. With its mild astringent properties, egg whites can also be used to control acne breakouts on the face. You’ll need to mix some egg white with a few drops of tea tree essential oil and apply it to your face as a mask for about 10 minutes.
7. Adds shine to dull and damaged hair:
Egg whites are an excellent natural product for your hair. If your hair is dull, dry and damaged, then egg whites can surely work their magic on it. Applying an egg white mask to your hair will give it that boost of protein and will restore the shine and softness of your hair. Doing this regularly will significantly improve the texture and quality of your hair. On the other hand, egg whites are also great for controlling an oily scalp.
Egg whites are truly multi-purpose in use and offer countless beauty benefits!
