OK, so we all know that way back when, some ladies used to whip up a few egg whites to take care of their hair. But did you know that eggs have been used to pamper skin for thousands of years as well? Yep, this skincare ingredient is one of the best naturally based ways to take care of your skin due to its high amount of protein and vitamins. That’s pretty eggs-treme!
(Fair warning, there will likely be a lot of egg puns in the rest of this post, so…)
Egg whites are full of a protein called albumin, which is what gives them that emollient feel and texture, as well as their incredible moisturizing properties. When used as a naturally based skincare ingredient, egg whites have a high water-binding capacity to help visibly firm and smooth your skin, so your pores appear tighter and your skin has a radiant, more supple look overall. Eggs also contain a high amount of vitamin B6 to nourish, moisturize, and soothe, reducing the appearance of skin imperfections and dry spots.
Eggs are just as great inside as they are outside. In other words, egg shells also make an eggs-cellent (hey, check out that pun) skincare ingredient. When used in skincare products for your face, egg shell powder creates a fiber-like protein matrix on skin, helping to smooth and brighten your complexion for a flawless-looking finish.
Now you know how eggs-tra special this ingredient is, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “How do you try this eggs-traordinary (sorry...can’t stop, won’t stop) skincare ingredient?” Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Check out these eggs-ceptional pampering products from Posh.
