Eggs are popularly known for being incredible and edible, but they also go well beyond the realm of omelets and the breakfast table. For thousands of years the little shelled ovals have be used in a variety of homemade do it yourself beauty treatments. People mix them up into hair masks and face treatments targeted for hydrating skin and hair, preventing acne, diminishing blemishes and scars, preventing hair fall, and more.
Eggs can even be used to get rid of pesky blackheads. The gross pore clogs are a real pain in the butt to remove, especially for people who have a dry skin type. Most people turn to pore cleaning strips that supposedly work to help pull them out, but in reality all that the pricey strips seem to do is dry out the fragile skin on the nose and irritate it further. Plus, they can be quite painful to remove. Instead of wasting more money looking for a solution to this age old beauty problem, try this 100% natural method that uses only egg whites. It’s effective at removing blackheads, incredibly cheap, and it simultaneously provides a number of other benefits.
YouTube beauty blogger BabamitsANNE shows how it’s done and explains all the steps and fine details. The mask she whips up in the video is a multipurpose one that does it all. It deep cleanses skin, removes blackheads and whiteheads, tightens pores, controls oiliness, gets rid of acne scars, reduces wrinkles, and makes your complexion glow. Start off by cracking open an egg, separate the white from the yolk and place it in a small bowl. Beat the white slightly, then apply it onto your face and neck with a face brush. Make sure you avoid your eyes and mouth. Next, take a piece of tissue and cut out eye, nose, and mouth holes. Place the tissue over your face and gently pat it onto the egg white, then apply a second layer of egg over the tissue and let it dry completely, or for at least 30 minutes. When time is up gently peel the tissue upwards and off your face, wash with a warm washcloth and pat dry. You’ll notice right away how good your skin looks. It will be smoother, more hydrated, fresher feeling, and glowing with healthiness. For the best results, people with oily skin should use this twice a week and those with dry skin only once.
