Smear on face for 20 minutes and rinse off.

Separate the egg white from the yolk and beat it. Apply for 30 minutes and wash off with cold water. It helps to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles, if followed regularly as a skin care routine. The presence of some vitamins in egg white is known to promote the tissue repair.

  • Egg to shrink large pores

Enlarged skin pores give you an uneven and dull appearance. Egg white is that home remedy which can be used to reduce the size of large facial pores. Egg white mask once a week will tighten the skin pores, making your skin looks firm and more youthful.

The unpleasant odor of eggs is the only drawback of using egg white as a face mask. But you have not to worry; it will not leave a bad smell on your skin. Also remember, if you experience redness, itching, or swelling on the skin while applying an egg white mask, wash it immediately. This means you are allergic to egg white. I hope the above skin benefits of egg white aid you to build an effective skin care routine.

      Do try a patch test on hand before applying egg white face mask. to avoid any allergy. Skin becomes tight and that is why it gets red for few minutes.

      My face was itching while I had the mask on, really uncomfortable. I left it on for 15 min. After removing my face has brocken out with red blotches all over. My suggestion is, test on a small part of your face first, because you may be allergic.
