hehe, well im just trying to find out as much about this egg yolk mask as possible, b/c being a guy im curious and not sure. also adding oil to my oily skin frightens me that i may get a bad breakout.

what is the use of the egg yolk mask?

what part of the egg do u use, egg yolk or egg white?

anything else added to the mixture?

any suggestions for oily skin, non oily skin?

how long(15 min)and how often?

does it help lighten scars or prevent pimples?

and any bad experiences, as well as good?
hi, i haven't used the mask yet, however i have been doing a bit of research since the egg mask post.

unfortunately, if you have oily skin (like me) using the egg yolk is not such a great idea, as you already assumed. however, it is full of protein, vitamin A and fatty acids that can really help smoothen your skin and diminish blemishes.

If you do have oily skin, the egg white is good to use, but it has a different function compared to the egg yolk. the egg white helps tighten pores. not as beneficial as the egg yolk, but still something.

i want to try the yolk because of it's benefits, but because i have oily skin, i don't want to risk any breakouts. maybe if u just dab the yolk onto your problem areas instead of your whole face, you will reduce the risk of breaking out. and u can also consider it as a trial run.
As envirogirl suggested, you could try just putting the egg yolk on problem areas. I have been using it as a mask as I do not have overly oily skin. After rinsing the mask off, I dab some of the yolk on specific blemishes to wear overnight. Since doing that, those blemishes seemed to have come to a "head" faster and are now shrinking and healing...probably much faster than if I had done nothing. You could maybe at least try that for a few nights and see what happens...
The Ann Landers letter doesn't state the type of skin (oily, normal/combination, dry) that she has. Just because it worked for her doesn't mean it would work for all. And I noticed some posts from those with oily skin saying that they were breaking out. and got even oilier skin.

unless those who have oily skin can prove me wrong, then i will start to use the mask. I need proof from those with my skin type.
I have used the egg yolk mask for the past 2 nights. I love it. However, I have really dry skin. I haven't had any new zits for 2 whole days and the one that has been trying to come to a head (and hurting like crazy) finally did and it is SO small. I thought it was going to be a monster. I will keep using this mask.
If you have oily skin I wouldn't suggest using the mask. I tried it back in OCtober and broke out worse than I can remember. The yolk does give the skin a beautiful glow and gives it a very shiny healthy shimmering quality but it made my mild comdedomes inflammed red and they took forever to die. Just be careful and pay close attention.

The Yolk brings pimples to the surface, so it's obvious you will break out before it gets better. I have noticed my skin not to be as oily as it usually is. I love the mask, I'm not gonna stop. If you wait, your skin will look much better.

i must say that i agree with erin. i don't know for sure, because i've only used the yolk mask for 3 nights now, but my oily skin isn't nearly as oily as usual. ( remember the woman who wrote in to ann landers said her acne was severe, so it was probably worse than most of us at this board)

i've found that a lot of people with acne are really impatient when it comes to trying treatments and they make a judgement long before they should. if the yolk is similar to retin-a in its effect, then it will probably take the full month to know for sure if it's working and you may initially experience a few more breakouts. everyone's skin is different, so try it and judge for yourself. good luck, guys.
