Gorgeous Glowing Skin in Minutes!

 Gorgeous Glowing Skin in Minutes!

By Polina Roytman

I have always been interested in skin care that you can create out of the items in your kitchen. For me, the more organic and natural the route the better. Egg whites are one of my most favorite, quickest, cheapest, and easiest tricks for getting glowing skin while reducing pores and fine lines. Egg whites are high in vitamin A and collagen, which are key for skin elasticity.

When I first tried to use egg whites I didn’t see what the big deal was and didn’t notice any difference in my skin, and while the mask was on I didn’t feel any tightening as I read would happen. After further research I noticed that using organic egg whites makes a huge difference. With some experimenting I noticed that just buying organic and cage free egg whites in a carton works wonderfully and is a lot quicker and less messy. My two favorite brands for this that I found to be most effective are the Organic Valley Organic Egg Whites and AbbotsFord Farms Cage Free 100% Liquid Egg Whites. Some other brand of egg whites I’ve tried don’t tend to kick in as quickly if at all.

Egg Whites

I typically apply a thin layer of the egg whites in the morning about once a week. Be sure to keep the egg whites away from the delicate skin around the eyes. Keep it on for about 5-7 minutes and then wash off with your regular morning face wash routine. When you apply the egg whites you will feel your skin tighten very quickly. I don’t recommend keeping the mask on longer than 7 minutes as that will end up pulling your skin too much and could also be too drying. Your skin will become so smooth while the mask is on that you’ll be tempted to keep it on longer, if not forever ;), but trust me the 5-7 minutes is all you’ll need.

A quick bonus: You can crush some cucumber and mix it in with the egg whites for extra collagen. Just a small amount will do, about 3 or 4 slices, so it won’t turn too watery. Cucumbers are also great for soothing irritated and sensitive skin.
