Homemade Egg White Face Mask | Know This Before You DIY!

Homemade Egg White Face Mask

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.

But…

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.

  1. This is amazing!! This egg remedy sound so helpful & effective! Thank you for sharing these! Such a great way to use natural remedies for healthy skin.

  2. I have tried other homemade facial masks before but always stayed away from using eggs for the same reasons you stated above.
    Thank you!

  3. This is really good information. I’ve heard of egg white masks before and thought about trying it, but you’ve convinced me to do more research. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Whit,

      Glad you like it. Egg White Mask is good, but it’s always good to be on the safer side.
      Let me know if you have any more questions.

      Cheers!

  4. Think I might be combination skin type. Would you advise to stay away from the egg white face mask ? What is worse case scenario ?

    Cheers,
    Mark

    • Hi Mark,

      I would recommend you to take the Skin Type Test to get sure first.
      The decision of using an egg white face mask comes down to the purpose you want to use it for. You don’t want to apply it without aiming something and without consulting a dermatologist as their could be some adverse effects of it (making your skin dry or clog pores that result in breakouts).
      I personally do not have a purpose to use it. If you do, you can get a consultation first and then proceed.

      Cheers!

  5. This was an interesting read! I never knew you could use egg white as a face mask. My wife loves putting things on your skin to always make it softer and more clear, I may recommend this to her.

    Have you ever done this before?

    • Hi Michael,

      Glad it got your attention. I did try the homemade egg mask but later realized it is not effective for people with combination skin type like me.

      Make sure your wife knows her skin type (I am sure, she already does!) before applying things on her face.

      She can also try a Ready-Made Egg Mask (I really liked this one!).

      Cheers!
