Eggs for Beter Skin? Yes
Of all the great (and not-so great) home remedies for better hair and better skin, egg was always a head-scratcher. Baffled as we were at why anyone would use (instead of eat) eggs on their hair or skin, some 411 on the beauty benefits of this breakfast staple turned our skepticism into full-on support.
Egg whites brighten and tighten skin and egg yolk is packed with essential vitamins and proteins necessary for strong hair and a radiant complexion. Egg yolk is also said to treat acne when used topically, reducing pore size and excess oil while enzymes found in egg yolk kill acne-causing bacteria. (Try these easy DIY egg masks). While egg may seem like a new thing in skincare, it’s been a popular at-home DIY for some time, not to mention huge in the K-beauty market for its skin-firming, skin-brightening, and hair-strengthening benefits.
