The incredible, useable egg

Eggs are odd. I get a little disgusted by the concept of eating them but I still think they’re delicious. They are full of protein so they’re a great addition to vegetarian meals but the protein they carry can also noticeably firm the skin and condition hair. Your skin and hair benefit greatly from the enormous amount of protein that is naturally found in eggs, which means you can make your own masks for less than half the cost of firming creams.


Conditioning and revitalizing hair mask: Hair is “dead”, I know. But it could use some tlc nonetheless. A lot of recipes call for 1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp of water but I’m a fan of using the egg on its own. Whip it, leave it on for 15 minutes (under a shower cap for best effect) and rinse out.


Eggs Benedict: Crack two eggs and plop them into a running bath. Easiest tip of them all!


Firming mask: So many recipes tell you to use only the egg whites for this mask. For no reason at all… except for maybe women are so scared that the yolk will make them fat apparently even if they put it on their faces. But the yolk is an important part of the protein count so whip one egg and pat it on your face. Leave on for 20 minutes and remove with a moist towel.

Firming eye-mask: Yes, I could have included this in the face mask above… but you actually don’t need to rinse this one off. AND, you’re only using the egg white here because the yolk would be too heavy to leave on. To do this brilliant trick, whip one egg white till foamy and pat a thin layer under the eye. Once it dries, you can swipe another thin layer over it or skip to applying lotion and makeup as usual. This trick is great if you haven’t gotten a lot of sleep the night before.
