How to make an egg mask for face?
Remove the egg white carefully after cracking the egg. There should be no shells in it. Whisk the whites till they are frothy and achieve an elastic-like consistency – repeat till a thick paste is formed. Follow the steps as mentioned above. Make sure you stay away from delicate areas like around the lips and eyes.
Is an egg face mask beneficial?
Egg whites contain high protein content, so they keep skin hydrated for a long time. They also have lysozyme, which is an antibacterial compound that kills bacteria by destroying their cell walls. Egg white is great for healing wounds – it soothes pimple-prone and inflamed skin. Lastly, they are packed with selenium, which acts as an antioxidant and prevents free radical damage due to UV radiation, while reversing signs of ageing.
Can you whip up an egg yolk face mask?
It works great for dry and flaky skin. All you have to do is whisk the yolks in a glass to get a uniform mixture and apply on face and neck. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. You can tweak the recipe by adding honey, banana, almond oil, etc. to target specific skin concerns.
A word of caution – there is a possible, but rare risk of salmonella infection as that bacteria could be present in raw eggs. To be on the safe side, use free-range and organic eggs, as it reduces chances of bacterial infection. To shop for kaolin clays, please browse our Bella Forever store!
