The incredible, edible egg can do much more that nourish your body, it can also be used to tighten and brighten your skin. Inexpensive and easily accessible, an egg can be a wonderful alternative to department store beauty products if you’re on a budget or just looking to try something new. Not to mention it’s entirely natural, so no worries about possible irritants in this one ingredient wonder.

Eggs contains natural vitamin A in the yolk that works to repair scarring and brightens redness while the egg white tightens and shrinks pores. As with all skin care, repeated use will produce more noticeable results, but any little bit helps!

Here’s what you do: Simply, whisk one entire egg until the yolk and white are well blended. Then using your fingers (or if you’re squeamish a cotton pad) apply the egg to your clean face in gentle circular motions. Continue layering the egg until you feel you have enough then allow it to dry and tighten, about 10 minutes or so. Rinse and go on your merry way!
