Egg white is a wonderful face mask. If you can bear the smell, apply it to your face for about 15 minutes before washing it off. The white is rich in Vitamin A that is magic for your skin.

Egg white also doubles up as an overnight remedy if applied directly on the pimple.

Egg yolk also makes a good mask. Take one beaten egg yolk and apply it to the face with a cotton ball. Let it dry for 15 minutes and then rinse with cool water. The protein and fatty acids in egg yolk replenish your skin.

Clogged pores are often a direct cause of pimples and acne. Oranges and lemons (any citrus fruit) work as great natural exfoliates to remove dead skin and open pores. Using a cotton ball, apply lemon juice on your face. Let it dry for about 10 minutes and then wash away. Your skin should sting a little. But if your face is very sensitive, then dab diluted juice onto your face.

hi everyone,

i was just reading all the responses about the use of egg yolk as a mask and i think i'm going to try. although now i am confused about whether i should use the yolk, the white, or both. considering maybe scrambling it first. unless if the 2 put together takes away from the benefits of each as an individual product. anyone know?

anyway, background of my skin in case anyone can relate to the changes: i have oily skin, don't really get a lot of pimples anymore, except on one side of my cheek i only have a major cyst problem. there are little tiny white bumps (about 5 or 6 of them near the same area) under the skin, some erupted, others have not. i have a couple of blemishes going away, but not fast enough, and some red marks and scars.

now i'm thinking, maybe the egg will only help my by making my skin smoother, and clearer, but the cysts will remain.

i will try it anyway, i don't think i have anything to lose. so i will keep u posted.

Yes, definitely, it does work better if you use it twice a day. It also depends on ur skin types as well. But when u cleanse your face with a cleanser, make sure you limit to twice a day before applying egg yolk. For added benefit, i recommend adding baking soda to ur cleanser.

I dont use egg whites alone.. sometimes i add a little to the egg yolk. Egg white can cause breakout.[/b][/quote]

bluetonic- i've been using the egg yolk mask for about 2 weeks now. it's helping a whole lot with red marks and i'm not getting any big pimples anymore :) but i have several very tiny pimples on my forehead and chin. (before i started using the yolk i broke out mostly on my cheeks and only mildly on my forehead and chin...)

what would you suggest? should i use benzoyl peroxide after the mask (i don't really want to since it really dries out my skin but if that's what it takes...)? or should i start using the yolk twice a day? i figure my acne was probably worse than most of the people using the mask- people with moderate acne are probably scared to try egg yolk, so it might take me a little bit longer than it has for the rest of the yolk-users.

any suggestions would be appreciated. :)
