Put Eggs On Your Face And Your Skin Will Thank You

Bikini DIY: Egg White Face Mask

It’s true you guys: Asia has always been a step or two (or three) ahead of us when it comes to skin care. If you think your skin routine has a lot of steps, a lot of Asian women believe in a ritual that involves 20-something steps. OK, not that many, but there’s a reason why their skin is flawless! Just like a lot of other beauty trends that have trickled their way to the U.S., there’s another one that seems to be getting a lot of attention now: egg whites in skin care.

Everyone knows that eggs have a lot of good protein in them, but who knew they were as beneficial for skin as they are for our health? There are a lot of great nutrients in egg whites that promote healthy, youthful skin: potassium helps preserve moisture in skin cells; riboflavin can rid damaging free radicals; and magnesium helps prevent wrinkles. Sounds pretty promising, right? Given that I’m skin-obsessed, I had to jump on board to see what all the hype was about. And guess what, I’m a fan.

What I Did

There are plenty of DIY’s for egg white facials, but for those that prefer to keep things simple, just use an egg white. But I felt like I needed something more. Since the temperatures have started to drop, I mean to LA standards, I feel my skin getting a little dry, so I wanted something hydrating. But because it was the weekend, I was feeling extra lazy, so I didn’t want to run out to pick any ingredients up. So I just used a few things I had in my fridge: avocados and Greek yogurt. Avocados are incredibly moisturizing, as is yogurt, which contains live cultures that help decrease bacteria and nourishes dry skin. Perfect.

The Experience

Some beauty DIY’s can get pretty messy, but this was easy to make (recipe below!) and had minimal clean up, so that in itself is a huge plus. Because all of the ingredients were in the fridge, the mask was chilly, but felt really refreshing on my parched skin. Honestly, I didn’t expect to see any immediate changes after washing it off, but to my surprise, my skin wasn’t as dull-looking and felt super soft. All in all, it was a success! Not only was it the cheapest mask I’ve ever used, but the fact that I knew every ingredient I was putting on my skin made me way less anxious and worried about breaking out. If you’re bored one day or notice that your skin needs a little pick-me-up, I highly recommend trying this.

The Recipe

  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ extra ripe avocado
  • 1 ½ tsp greek yogurt

Directions:

  1. Separate the egg whites from the yolk and put to the side in a small bowl.
  2. Use another bowl and a fork to mash the avocado up until it’s smooth.
  3. Next add the egg mixture and yogurt, and mix together.
  4. Make sure your hands are clean, and apply a generous coat all over your face and let it sit for 20 minutes.
  5. Wash off with warm water.
