Even though most of us generally use them as food, eggs can be an excellent beauty tool as well. Enjoy this informative segment on the anti-aging and healing properties of an egg white mask for your skin and a nourishing egg yolk mask for your hair.
This video from Brazilian Girl Channel will take you step-by-step through the making of both masks.
Use Egg Whites As a Skin Treatment
When egg whites are whipped into a foam and applied to the skin, the proteins and vitamins in the egg white tighten sagging skin, reduce pore size, and have a slight bleaching effect that reduces dark marks caused by acne scars. As the narrator in the video explains, egg whites can also help heal burns.
Use Egg Yolk As a Hair Mask
Egg yolks, when mixed with a small amount of olive oil, can be a nourishing treatment for brittle hair. When left on the hair for a small amount of time, the oils and proteins bind to the hair shaft, sealing hair ends and leaving your hair gleaming and manageable.
