As the weather turns colder and the holidays approach (less sleeping time, haha…), your skin can start looking dull or feeling dry. Instead of reaching for products with long ingredient lists, try an easy homemade face mask using one of nature’s most nourishing superfoods – eggs!
Eggs are packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals that can benefit your complexion. The high concentration of sulfur helps detoxify and exfoliate, while the amino acids and lipids hydrate and smooth your skin.
This week, iMusthav’s editor would like to share a few egg mask recipes that we can try:
Option 1: Egg White Brightening Mask
Egg whites are known for their tightening effects. Mix the white of one egg with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply to clean, dry skin and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing off. The citric acid and protein in this mask work to lighten dark spots and brighten your overall complexion.
Option 2: Yolk Nourishing Mask
Egg yolks are rich in fatty acids and collagen-boosting vitamin A. Simply crack one yolk and apply it all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Let it absorb for 15 minutes before washing off. Your skin will feel plumper and look radiant after using this moisturizing mask.
Option 3: Honey & Oatmeal Soothing Mask
For sensitive, acne-prone skin, mix one egg yolk with 1 tablespoon each honey and oats. The anti-inflammatory properties of honey and exfoliating oats will leave your face feeling calm and clear. Leaving it on for 15-20 minutes allows time for the ingredients to absorb into the skin and work their magic. Rinsing after 15-20 minutes should leave your complexion feeling soft, smooth, and calm.
Here’s a bit more context:
• Since this mask contains hydrating honey and exfoliating oats, it’s more nourishing than treatments with just one ingredient.
• The honey helps soothe and moisturize, while the oats gently exfoliate dead skin cells. More time allows these benefits to really sink in. But, You don’t want to leave it on too long (over 20 mins) as the oats could potentially over-exfoliate sensitive skin with prolonged contact.
• Starting with 15 minutes and working up to 20 if your skin tolerates it well is a good guideline. As always, listen to your skin’s needs and adjust the time accordingly.
Incorporate one of these easy, inexpensive egg masks into your weekly routine for skin that glows all winter long, naturally!
