Ladies, there’s no need to spend thousands of dollars to look younger! There’s a more organic and less expensive way to tighten your skin so you always look radiant. Try this temporary skin lifting mask at home and see amazing results immediately. Egg whites are Mother Nature’s little gift to allow us to organically tighten our skin and look incredible almost instantly. My mother, my grandmother and her mother have all been using the same homemade remedy for generations and it has always produced great results. I still use the same plain ingredient till this day at least twice a week and for those special occasions and an evening full of compliments and envious glances.
Before getting started on any mask, make sure you have all the ingredients that you need. Clean your face well of all make-up and excess oils and pat it dry with a fresh towel so not to place any dirt or bacteria from the previous user back on your face. One your face is prepped you can apply the mask and follow instructions. A double layer of egg white can be applied for best results or if you’re suffering from blackheads. A third layer over the blackhead area only is also suggested for better pulling results. Be sure to keep your face muscles still for best results and that means, no eating, drinking, smoking, laughing, kissing or whatever else you may have on your mind.
Did you know?
Ladies, did you know that egg whites can also be used as a great hair treatment. Besides the great beneficial fact that if consumed orally, egg whites are high in protein and a great source of Vitamin B and B complex. According to Ladies Home Journal, ” Though including egg whites in your diet can help boost your hair’s shine and body, egg whites can also play a starring role in your next homemade protein hair mask.” For best results, use a beater to beat egg whites until they are white and foamy, about two minutes. Add one spoonful of yogurt until the foam disappears and the mixture turns to paste like form. Scoop on to your hair and spread evenly and wash after 20 minutes with warm water. Great for women with oily hair!
Egg whites are a great source of astringent and are best if used on oily skin. Any oils in the skin are pulled into the drying egg, therefore drying out the skin and slowly eliminating any oils that may cause acne. If combined with other ingredients, it can give you radiant looking skin no matter how dry, oily, blotchy, red and irritated your skin can get.
When combined with other organic fruits and vegetables, the base egg white mixed with other ingredients can also produce skin tightening, but you can pick and choose which to use according to your skin type and what results you’re looking for specifically. Apply all masks evenly to your face for approximately 20 minutes and rinse with warm water.
