Eggs are the quintessential breakfast food, and yet your stomach is not the only part of your body that can benefit from them. Your skin can too. Homemade egg masks are said to have the ability to tighten pores and they also have cleansing and acne fighting properties, as well. Making this mask can improve your skin tone and it is inexpensive too.
What exactly des an egg white have that makes it really effective? Well, the whites contain albumin, a substance that is rich in protein. Egg whites also contain an enzyme called lysozyme, which has properties that kill bacteria, and that is probably the reason why it helps reduce acne and blackheads!
Another great thing about egg masks is that they have the ability to “lift”your skin. The whites are water soluble, and so, if it is applied on the skin, and then dries, a thin film of protein remains. At this point, you may feel some tightness on your skin. Many facial products contain a derivative of egg whites because it helps tighten not only your skin but your pores as well. That is why this mask is great for people with oily skin because they usually have larger pores.
