An egg might look innocent but basically, it is a ninja. A ninja that has a lot of tactics in its arsenal. Once you break its shield you unleash a spectrum of benefits. Not just for nourishing your body and well, satisfying your taste buds. There is more to eggs than just being scrambled into a mash, more than just being whipped around in cake batter.
Eggs offer a variety of beauty benefits. You may as well find a solution for every single of your beauty related problems. These egg secrets have been around for a long time because they actually work. The best part is, that these home remedies come without side effects, unlike those products that might or not suit your skin and also cost you a lot of bucks.
Here is a list of some of the amazing things an egg can do for your beauty.
A rich source of protein, an egg can repair dry and damaged hair. It makes hair smoother, softer, thicker, and glossier. Blend an egg with half a cup of skimmed milk. Rub this mixture on your hair and then let it stay for half an hour. Then wash off with water for voluminous hair.
For healthy and beautiful hair, you can make a shampoo by mixing an egg with two spoons of orange juice. To condition your hair, you can use a blend of egg yolk and baby oil. You can also mix two teaspoons of fresh yogurt with two eggs to make a hair mask. Leave it on for 30 minutes before washing.
Get rid of blackheads by cleansing your face with a slice of lemon then apply a layer of an egg white, immediately followed by covering it with tissue paper. Apply another layer and cover once again. Leave it on for twenty minutes to let it dry entirely. Then gently peel the tissue paper off.
Eggs also work wonders on the skin. They tighten pores and can also be used to control excessive oiling. Egg whites mixed with olive oil and honey can be used to cleanse skin, tighten skin pores and lighten the appearance of blemishes. Egg white blended with honey can also be used to ward off signs of aging. This mix reduces sagginess and gives a youthful glow.
Shadows under eyes can be a nuisance. Once again, an egg can come to your rescue. Apply egg white separated from the yolk on the area under your eyes through a makeup brush. Once it dries, use a wet cotton ball to pat it off then wash your face with cold water.
You can prepare your eyelash serum at home by mixing an egg white with glycerine, and olive oil. Dip a new and clean mascara wand in this mix and apply two to three times. Let the paste sit for about an hour before washing off with cold water. This way you can make your lashes thicker, stronger, and longer.
Eggs can also serve you when it comes to peeling and cracking nails. Dip your fingers for ten minutes in a 1/4th cup of lukewarm milk and one egg yolk. This will nourish your fingernails, strengthen them and promote fast growth. Rinse off hands with cold water.
Never underestimate the power of an ordinary egg. Coupled with other items off your kitchen counter, there are lots of face and hair masks that you can make with eggs to combat all the stress you go through.
