Going through a breakup plays havoc with our heart and sense of self, particularly in the early stages when we’re unable to sleep, crying our eyes dry and focused on how rotten we feel versus how we look. Then comes that OMG moment when we look in the mirror and ask, “Who is that?"
That's the signal it’s time to "face" up, reach for an egg and begin your reboot! Why an egg? Because the old yolk is rich in seven vitamins including A (a strong anti-wrinkle agent), D, E, B-12 and K — all good for the body and skin — and minerals like potassium and calcium. The egg’s gooey white has natural astringents that help tighten, tone and firm, making the egg a self-packaged, all-in-one facial elixir!
Reach for that wondrous beauty aid and get crackin’!
Tips: Tie your hair back, since these treatments can be a little messy. Once you apply, sit back and chill. They may drip a bit as they dry!
This simple recipe gives a beautiful new meaning to ‘egg on your face’!
Whites on their own have tons of astringent qualities. Lemon juice intensifies their effectiveness and kills bacteria that causes pimples and blackheads. Honey is a natural antiseptic, anti-bacterial and moisturizer. The result: firmer, smoother skin and less zits!
Say goodnight to tired looking lids!
The membrane, an overlooked part of this incredible beauty elixir, is chock full of skin-nourishing stuff like collagen and hyaluronic acid — which help to rejuvenate and replenish — reduce puffy eyes from too much crying, drinking and lack of sleep! Best yet, it costs much less then anything you’d buy in your favorite department or drug store!
*Since we are not egg surgeons, the membrane may be challenging to remove, so find a piece of the membrane you can get a grip on!
Yolks are a terrific moisturizer and they contain sulfer which makes them an effective dandruff fighter! (BTW you can also use this treatment as a facial mask!)
