Frugal Beauty- Egg Yolks

Sharing is caring!

Have you ever made a recipe and had leftover egg yolks to deal with? Those mornings when you just want an egg white omelet, but you don’t want to waste any part of that egg? Well, how about using it in a beauty regimen?

Egg Yolks do a great job of tightening the skin and creating a smooth texture.  Rather than spend sometimes hundreds of dollars on those face-tightening creams, you can use something right from your fridge.

Here’s how to properly use egg yolks to tighten skin:

-Break the yolk and stir a bit
-Place a cotton ball in the yolk
-Use the yolk-soaked ball to rub the egg all over your face and neck
– Leave on face for 15 minutes
-Rinse off with lukewarm water
-Moisturize as usual

And that’s it! You can do this up to once a week or just as a freshener whenever you have some spare yolks to part with. I even do this to my hands(they show age quicker than any other part of your body) but you will have to make sure you can keep your hands still for the whole 15 minutes. Try it today!

    hmmm… how about if you let your dog lick it off your place in lieu of the warm water?

    But don’t forget to save the shells! Rinse and air dry, then turn to powder in the food processor. Sprinkle on the ground around your tomato plants (or anything that could benefit from calcium).

    I had to laugh when I saw this post. I’ve been doing home made ‘masks’ for years from cucumber paste to eggs, honey for moisture, beer for hair rinse, seasalt and honey for a good body scrub, egg and olive oil for hair mask. 🙂
