Whether you are a young woman troubled by teenage spotty skin and large pores, or
a time-strapped, always on-the-go mom in need of a little skin rejuvenation to firm
up tired face complexion, you are probably ready to try the next great thing that
promises glowingly clear, youthful-looking skin in just days.
However, for most of us, we cannot afford to splash out on sophisticated beauty products
made by big name companies like La Prairie in this cash-conscious climate. It seems
that the humble egg – home made egg white face mask –is a good alternative that
has big skin-tightening and acne-fighting benefits in natural skin care therapy.
If applied to the face on a regular basis, egg white will greatly improve your skin’s
appearance and health, without spending huge sums of money.
Egg whites are an excellent source of protein plus they are also rich in a wide spectrum
of Vitamins and minerals such as selenium and the B complex Vitamins. Selenium is
a component of antioxidant enzymes which helps protect the skin against sun-induced
free-radical damage and slow down skin ageing naturally by promoting skin elasticity.
When skin loses elasticity, it begins to sag and wrinkle. Forehead wrinkles, crows
feet and fine lines under your eyes, lips, and other areas become more noticeable.
Another notable benefit of selenium for skin is, the mineral helps prevent acne breakouts,
and keep skin pores clear.
Aside from helping your body produce energy and maintain cellular functions, the
B complex Vitamins also play an important role in keeping the skin healthy and looking
young. For instance, Vitamin B3 (niacin) can help enhance your skin’s natural lightening
process to promote beautifully whiter and fairer complexion.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) speeds up wound healing and help remedy dry chapped
skin. In addition to this, it also regulates oil production in acne-prone skin, thereby
keeping pimples and acne under control. It is not surprising to hear of people taking
Vitamin B 5 supplements as a natural treatment to cure adult acne, but you should
always read up on them first as megadoses can cause a variety of side effects like
severe fatigue and dehydration.
Also known as biotin, Vitamin B7 is widely used in the beauty industry to encourage
healthy hair growth. This Vitamin is also helpful for people with dry skin and facial
So if you are looking for a quick way to shrink enlarged pores to their original
size, this egg white face mask recipe is simply amazing. It is like an instant mini
face lift to tighten pores and tauten slack saggy skin tone.
What’s also nice about the egg white mask is you can add a handful of household items
to suit your skin condition. As I have oily skin that tends to break out quite a
bit, with large pores and blackheads on the nose, fresh lemon juice and witch hazel
are my preferred choice of natural skin care ingredients. When combined with lemon
juice and witch hazel, the egg white face mask absorbs excess facial oil while removing
If you want a face mask that is more hydrating for dry mature skin, use honey as
it adds moisture to thirsty skin, leaving your facial complexion well-mositurised
and truly silky soft to the touch. Mix 1 tablespoon honey with the egg white and
maybe add 1-2 drops orange essential oil as well.
For acne sufferers, you can stir in 1 tablespoon each of rose water, oatmeal (or
cornmeal) and crushed fresh mint leaves. Both rose water and mint leaves helps calm
and soothe red inflamed pimples quickly while oatmeal soaks up excess oil on the
face and fights bacteria.
To restore brightness to dull-looking stressed skin that has dry patches on cheeks,
or to fade freckles and age spots, ½ tablespoon fresh grapefruit juice (or orange
juice) and 1 tablespoon sour cream (or milk) will work miracles.
Sour cream not only nourishes and hydrates dry skin, but will also gently exfoliates
to reveal smoother, more radiant complexion, thanks to its lactic acid. Grape fruit
enhances the egg white’s astringent properties and also helps to lighten dark skin
pigmentation, giving you a naturally whiter and spot-free skin.
One very important thing is always use organically produced eggs as they are free
of hormones, pesticides or herbicides. Otherwise you may be transferring these undesirable
substances to your skin. Also, keep in mind that some people are allergic to eggs.
If you experience skin redness, itching, burning or swelling when putting on the
egg white tightening mask, rinse off completely and contact your doctor right away.
