Alright time to settle this. As most people know putting egg on as a mask is great for your skin and can be used with any medication. I have been putting the yolk on my face and it works pretty well I think, however, now I am being told by a bunch of people that it's the whites?

So which one is it? the yolk or the whites in the eggs guys?

Thanks a bunch!
[QUOTE=DrFunk]could someone also go over the whole procedure?? i would like to start this but dont know how....[/QUOTE]

It's really as simple as it sounds. Lets say your using the yolk. Break open the egg over the sink, put your finger inside the egg to act as like a strainer, strain out all the white until you just have the yellow left. Then break the yellow over your face and just rub it all around your face and let it dry. I use a blow dryer now to speed up the process so it doesn't drop all over the place, but it stills very messy. I also go to sleep with it on so it asks as like a mask so i don't spread my acne while I sleep. I wake up always with yellow egg all over my bed but just vacuum it up. I love it and will continue to use it as often as I can before bed.
I wouldn't recommend doing this - I've never tried it personally, but I considred it, before coming across the information I discovered on this board. Simply conduct a search for egg, or egg mask, and you will see what I mean. The consensus seemed to be that, initially, the mask appeared to be highly effective, but the acne of those using it become progressively worse over time. My guess is that the egg mask probably creates a film on the face that merely reduces the appearance of acne while serving only to further obstruct pores.

This makes a lot of sense but I look at it this way. I move around a lot in my sleep and I rub my face all over my pillow, now what's better, me breaking my acne and having all the contagious ooze being rubbed around my face all night spreading everything, or obstructing the pores a bit while i sleep and isolating the acne? So far so good so i'll keep the egg mask going until I see some problems.
Read my post earlier and you'll see I need some kind of mask or I spread it while I sleep, although it may cause pores to be blocked and what not I need it so I don't spread stuff around my face while I sleep.

I used the egg white last night and I think althought messier I like the yolk better, so going to go back to that.
egg white: for oily skin
egg yolk: for dry skin

When I was a teen, my mum (who has the most beautiful skin) used to make me use a egg white mask, lemon rub, and milk everynight. I used to put the egg white directly on my skin and let it dry; leave it on for 10-15mins and then wash it off with a cleanser (it gets tight and helps to pull out all the stuff in your pores). After this I would just rub a slice of lemon on my face (stings like hell) let it dry and then rinse with water, then I'll just kinda splash my face with milk and sleep with that over night. My skin was beautiful as a teen, hardly ever had blemishes. Sometimes I wonder if I should go back to this regime but my skin's really sensitive at the moment (been trying too much stuff). Maybe in a few months I'll give it a try. The milk and egg white is very soothing though...

My mum is 50 now and has no wrinkles, no saggy skin, just perfect skin. This is her regime everynight. This is what she told me:
-egg white basically cleans out your pores and makes your skin tighter
-lemons acts as a exfoliant (like AHAs) and a bleaching agent
-milk acts as a mild exfoliant also (lactic acid) and it whitens your skin

I stopped doing the above when I met my bf (9 yrs ago) because the milk does smell a bit sour after a while and I didn't want to smell :)

I love this except I think I am going to go, lemon first, milk second, then put the YOLK egg over top of the milk. The reason I'll do yolk is cause I used white last night and today my face has been a mess. Plus I am on accutane which means really dry skin. Can't wait to try it thanks a bunch.
