As the years go by our skin can lose its firmness. Tighten your skin back up with a skin tightening egg mask. Learn more about what it can do and what recipes you can try.
What Can It Do?
Egg whites can be used as a mask to encourage the skin to become tighter and firmer. The results are not permanent but they do impart protein benefits into your skin. As the egg dries tightens up your skin. Once you wash it away the results are less noticeable. Using a skin tightening egg mask is still healthy for your skin even if the results are not long lasting.
Use Organic Eggs
Eggs that are not organically produced may contain traces of hormones, pesticides or herbicides that are present in chicken yards and in egg production facilities. In order to be sure that you are not also applying these substances to your skin, be sure to use eggs that are organically produced.
Warnings To Think About
Eggs are a known allergen that can cause skin reactions in some people. If you experience redness, itching, burning or swelling of the skin when applying an egg white tightening mask, rinse the mask off immediately and contact your doctor. If this happens you may have an egg allergy.
Skin Firming Egg Mask Recipes:
Tightening Turmeric Mask:
Mix in 2 table spoons LifeCell moisturizer, 1 egg white, 2 pinches of turmeric and 1 tablespoon honey together to make a paste. Apply to the face evenly, avoiding the eyes, and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. The egg white tightens, while the turmeric and honey stimulates the skin and plumps it up, helping to build collagen to create a smoother look.
Egg White and Honey Mask:
Honey soothes irritated skin, while softening it. Gently combine the egg white of one large egg with a tablespoon of honey. Before you apply it to your face, add one to two drops of tea tree oil to help build upon the egg white’s astringent properties. Rub it gently into your skin using an upward motion with your finger tips. Do not apply around your eye area. Allow it to dry for 10 to 15 minutes as you feel the egg tighten. Wash your face with warm water to rinse.
Skin Tightening Egg Mask With Apples:
Apple pulp is a great exfoliator, helping to lift away dead skin as the egg white tightens. Peel and core a medium sized apple and pulse through the food processor until reduced to a pulp. Combine the pulp with the whites from two eggs and a few drops of lavender oil to help soothe. Gently apply to the face and allow to dry. Rinse it off gently with warm water and a soft cloth.
Egg White and Avocado Mask:
Avocados are extremely nourishing to the skin. Mixed with egg white, the oils of the avocado penetrate deeply into the pores, leaving your skin soft and nourished. Blend an avocado until creamy and combine with two egg whites. Add two drops of chamomile essential oil to help soothe and soften the skin, smooth on and let dry. Rinse away with warm water.
