Re: Egg Yolk Mask

The mask is mis-used and over-used.

It is only supposed to be used for one month,
once a day for 5-10 minutes only until it is dry
and for people with dry skin.

The egg white mask is for people with oily skin.

The egg should not be used for "months" and some
people were leaving it on overnight. It should be
washed off completely.

I never had a "film" or a breakout from this mask
and I only used it once a day for thirty days.

I think it is like every other remedy, of any kind,
whether products or drugs, there are side effects and
people who get worse and that those who succeed move on
and the others stay on the board to say how awful it was.

I've been here a long time, since the old boards,
and I've seen tons of people get clear and leave
when they found their right cure and others struggle
with that same cure, whether it's accutane or topicals
or products. Tons of people who got better on proactive or bp and others who got burned or worse.

Some who get better on diet and others for whom it has
no effect.

Everybody has to find what's right for them. Egg worked for me.

[i]Dear Ann Landers: In 1969, I started my first year as a university student. Soon after, I developed a severe case of acne, and I am sure stress had a lot to do with it. I went to three doctors and spent hundreds of dollars on medicine that did not work.

The summer of 1970, I went to lunch with a friend at the World Bank in Washington, D.C., and while in the ladies' room, a beautiful East Indian woman wearing a sari gave me a smile. When I responded, she touched my face and said, "Oh, no. Red ugly spots on pretty face. You fix with egg yolk." I said, "Are you serious? Do you think it would really help?"

She replied, "Yes, you put raw egg yolk on face and let dry for 10 minutes, then wash off. Do every day for one month and spots go away. You do again two times in every month for three months and again if trouble starts."

I was unconvinced but thanked her anyway. That night I decided I had very little to lose since the acne was terrible and nothing else had worked. Well, Ann, that woman knew what she was talking about. Since then, I've told several friends about the egg-yolk cure and the success rate has been phenomenal. Please tell your readers. They'll be forever grateful.


Ann Landers' reply:

I faxed your letter to Dr. Mary Ellen Brademas, a superb dermatologist in New York, and this is her response:

For many years, topical applications of Vitamin A have been prescribed by physicians as a treatment for acne. Because egg yolks are an excellent source of Vitamin A, it is not surprising that raw egg yolks improve acne lesions. It is interesting that the writer's lesions appeared after periods of stress. Stress can make acne worse and can also worsen other conditions such as ulcers and psoriasis.

In any case, sometimes there is a simple scientific basis for success in home remedies.[/i]
