Chanced upon an awesome discovery, well nearly, I discovered (did not invent) a pack with egg that can be used as a face pack as well as a hair mask. This pack works effectively both ways. The only downside is the stink that the egg raises. Well, we can do anything to see the pores on our face shrink and to get lustrous hair, wouldn’t we? There are only three ingredients in this pack, but all three of them work amazingly on the skin as well as hair. Coming to the benefits of ingredients- eggs are a rich source of protein, especially egg whites. Egg white improve skin’s elasticity and tightens pores, drawing out oils from the skin, adding glow. Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C and acts against bacteria. Also, helps in getting rid of tan. Lemon when applied to hair roots helps in getting rid of dandruff. Pure olive oil is a super oil that benefits both skin and hair. Olive oil is full of anti-oxidants, contains Vitamin A and E, and prevents free radical damage. Olive oil conditions hair, adds shine, strengthens hair, and prevents damage, also prevents hair loss.
Let’s check out the recipe 🙂
1. Egg White from 1 egg (I have used only one to use it as a face mask. If you are making it for hair, you would have to use 3 eggs).
2. One tablespoon pure olive oil (not the one for cooking purpose).
3. Juice of half a lemon.
You can add one tablespoon of honey to this mixture when you are making a face pack, but some people are skeptical about applying honey to hair, so you can skip or add according to your choice.
Separate the egg white from the yolk and whip it up a bit.
Add in one tablespoon of olive oil and whip again so that the oil mixes well into the egg white.
Squeeze in a few drops from half a lemon and whip again. That’s it, the face mask/hair pack is ready.
If you are using this as a face pack, apply it on clean and dry face with a face pack brush. Keep on for 15 minutes and wash off. You will notice supple and soft skin with reduced size of facial pores. I have oily skin, but I did not have any break outs or irritation either due to the egg or the olive oil.
If you are using this as a hair mask, massage it into clean scalp and hair with fingertips, keep on for 1 hour, and wash off. Do this every week to see the difference in your hair.
Do try this mask and let me know how you find it 🙂
