Egg yolk is made up of mostly water and fats, which makes it a great water-binding agent that locks moisture into your skin cells, leaving your face soft and supple.
Eggs are full of nutrients which make them great for the skin and other beauty treatments.
Not only are eggs beneficial for the body, but they can also provide a good dose of nutrients to the skin and hair for that glowing and healthier look. Rich in Lutin, eggs can provide hydration and elasticity to the skin while the high protein content can help in repairing tissues and firming the skin.
The proteins in eggs can be used in softening the hair, and also give it strength and shine.
Here are five ways to use egg yolk for glowing skin which you can easily make at home this weekend.
Face mask for wrinkles
Making an egg yolk face mask is a great way to tighten and tone your skin. To make this face mask you need an egg yolk, olive oil and a banana. Mix the ingredients together, apply on your face and leave for 5-10 minutes before washing it off. The olive oil moisturizes the skin and acts as a natural botox. The banana contains vitamin E, B2, B3 and zinc which effectively slow aging.
Close up pores
If you are looking to close up your pores before bedtime, you should whip up a mixture of egg yolk and olive oil. Apply this mixture to a clean face and leave it for 5-10 minutes. After that, wash it away to reveal hydrated, supple skin.
Fixing split ends
Split ends can be a menace in that they make hair look weak and unattractive, not to mention that they cause hair to be prone to breakage. An egg yolk hair mask is just the solution you need. Mix the egg yolk with some coconut oil, olive oil and honey and then let the mixture soak into your split ends. Wash out the mixture after a while and your split ends will be sorted.
You can use an egg yolk to make a hair conditioner and pump life back into your hair. For this, you will simply need an egg yolk and half a teaspoon of olive oil. Mix the two together in a bowl then apply to your hair. Leave it to sit for 15 minutes before rinsing it out for beautiful, soft, healthy hair.
Strengthen weak nails
If you suffer from brittle nails that are prone to frequent breaking, an egg yolk might be the answer you need. Mix an egg yolk with some honey and apply it all over your nails. Leave it for 10 minutes before washing it out. The yolk contains proteins that will strengthen the nails while the honey has anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties that are good for the nails.
