Welcome to my weekly blog!! Glad you are here.
As Covid 19 keeps us close to home I’d like to share another self care ritual that is both simple, easy and a fun way to use some TV time while indoors. ( Ps. I apply it on my husband too).
It is an egg white facial. I prefer the use of the whole egg so I will share it that way but you could leave out the yolk.
Proponents of egg white masks believe that the protein in egg whites has skin tightening effects while also absorbing excess oil from the skin. Some people state that egg whites contain vitamins and minerals that can enhance the appearance of the skin.
The nice thing about this mask is you probably have these ingredients at home.
So here you go :
one egg white
Beat the egg white and add 1/2 lemon squeezed into the white. Then add about a tsp of honey. Mix again.
If you are using the yolk then add the yolk after you mix the white with the lemon juice- then add honey.
That’s it. Apply a thin layer on clean skin for about ten -15 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Since there will be leftover mask mix you can apply later in day or keep in refrigerator until next time.
In the past, I have enjoyed doing this mask before going out for the evening as it does tighten the skin and makes it feel refreshed.
Hope you enjoy!
