Egg Yolk Mask
Feb 25, 2003
Hey I am planning on tryin the egg yolk mask 2night and was wondering for people who have trued it if it was better to leave it on for 15 minutes and wash it off or to leave it on all night.

Theres was a super long post about the egg yolk mask and everyone who tried it had great progress for a couple months but then had huge breakouts, even in palces where they didnt have acne. Some said the reason being that the yolk can never be completely cleaned from the face and it slowly clogs the pores. (Look for the post) ~Erin~ started it I believe.

Hi Everyone! I started the egg mask yesterday. IU'm alternating egg yolk and egg white, cause I dont know which is better. Now, I know everyone hates this, but I thought I'd try it anyways. I have read on several web sites how good this is, and no one else has said that it made things worse. Also, many of you mentioned it built a film, which caused the new acne. SO I will use it for a week or so, til my face clears up, and then will discontinue. I figure if I use St Ives scrub after that, I will keep my face clean and pimple free. This is just to get it started faster. Maybe I will use it once a week afterwards or something...

Also, After using the eggs last night and today, I use a cleanser and scrub to get rid of any excess egg that may be on it. I understand what you mean, I can feel a film. Anyways, any face looks better (or I think so...feels softer, no big pimmples!!)

Again, I know everyone here hates the egg mask ;) Soo..if nayone wants to hear about my results, let me know, and I will keep yuou posted (maybe usung face scrub after each egg will help?) If you dont want to know, I will shut up. I consider this an experiment ;)

If anyone else has tried this (or any variation) I mean using hte egg once a week for a couple months..or using the egg for JUST one week, and stopping after face is cleared..I would love to know!

Thanks!

I have mild acne and I tried the egg yolk mask for one week and the first time it was great and then at the end of the week I had one of the worst breakouts I've ever had and my acne isn't close to severe. I thought I was clever when I did this..I read other peoples posts and how they had bad experiences but as with all these regimes and products everyones individual and it's not gonna work for everyone so I thought I'd give it a shot. My advice to you is to stop doing this speaking from experience. I'm not gonna tell you what to do maybe it'll work for you but consider the fact that a large number of people did this with the same outcome. What has worked for me now is:
1. I've stopped picking/squeezing spots and leave them to heal
2. Using pure 99.9 Aloe Vera Gel every night

Good luck with using this egg yolk mask but completely read the post from Erin and it'll show you other peoples progress.

Later

SAY NO TO EGG YOLK ..lol.
Speaking from experience from not to long ago, my sister got me into doing the egg yolk mask. At first it made my skin feel great (that is the first few times i did it) Not long afterwards, my skin took a turn for the worse. I started using the egg mask with completely clear skin, and ended up with zits on top of zits in only a week. I experienced a HUGE breakout from it.
Keep us informed on how its working for you ~
~cheers girl~~

The egg yolk mask cleared me up 100%
with no breakouts or side effects of any kind.

You might have been able to get the excess egg yolk residue off the top layer of your skin with the scrub, BUT what about that egg yolk that sunk deep into your pores that is now sitting there clogging your pores.And you keep using the eggyolk and MORE of it is getting deeply embedded in your pores just piling up and actually damaging your pore.Ya, for now you see no pimples but it won't be long before all that trapped eggyolk inside your pores causes an infection and the zits you get from that infection take FOREVER to clear up cause they are deeply embedded in your pores.Good luck with your egg yolk mask. :D

Plymouth: Do you continue to use the egg-yolk mask? If not, how long have you been off it and how long were you on it? Also, did you have body acne? Thanks.

Good luck eternity.. hope it works out... let us know what happens.

I used the egg yolk mask for only one 30 day period.

Applied once a day for 5 or ten minutes until it dried.

I rinsed it off with water or took a shower.

That's all!

Plymouth: Thanks for the reply but how long have you been off the egg-yolk mask? And did you have body acne? Thanks.

So plymouth your suggesting if its used for less then a 10minute period you won't get the side effects that everyone is talking about? Or, maybe your pores have already been clogged but not as much, which still isn't good right?

I tried this and it made my skin really itchy and didn't really do a thing for me to be honest.
