We all love homemade treatments for our skin and with the ease at which the information is available on the web, it is almost effortless to look for different recipes and prepare it in the comfort of our homes. One of the very popular treatments is Homemade Egg White Face Mask. This is an all-natural solution for treating acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. The protein present in egg whites improves skin tone and elasticity. It also works great for people with oily or dry skin. You can add different ingredients with egg whites based on your need and it will most likely, serve the purpose.
Let’s look at the flip side of the coin for a moment. The egg white mask could be great and all but is it really for you?
Do you know that egg whites contain Vitamin A which can cause breakouts, and increase sensitivity if you have sensitive skin? It can clog pores and ignite acne for people with acne prone skin. It can also spread bacteria on the skin as raw eggs often contain salmonella bacterium.
Always Have a Purpose
There should be a purpose behind everything you apply on your face. There are a lot of egg white face masks with different ingredients that serve different purposes. I realized this when the egg white face masks either gave me breakouts or left me with dry cheeks. I was using it just because I thought it would make my skin better. But better from what? I didn’t know, and that’s why it didn’t work for me. It is always worthy to do a little research on the ingredients of your mask so that you know if it can have any adverse effects or better, consult a specialist.
A Consultation Doesn’t Hurt
I’m a huge advocate of consulting a dermatologist or a skin care professional prior to use an egg white mask or any face mask for that matter that involves more than one ingredient and know if it is going to be beneficial for you or not. This can save you from a lot of trouble.
P.S. – If you are among people who like to use an egg white face mask but do not want to make it at home (I know, we exists!), here is a very good option you can try (India / U.S. / U.K.) from Amazon.
