Most listings of home remedies for various beauty issues call for the use of egg whites, no matter if it’s for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, removing blackheads, shrinking large pores or making the hair shine. Egg yolks, on the other hand, are often thrown away or saved for something else.
This article will introduce you to the fact that egg yolks can actually be used for making yourself look and feel beautiful. After reading, share it so that your family and friends who wish to deal with various cosmetic problems naturally and in a pocket-friendly ways may also learn how they can take advantage of egg yolks.
Individuals who are trying to slim down stick to egg whites because all the fat content of an egg can be found in the yolk. However, an egg yolk is also loaded with nutrients, many of which can be very beneficial for both skin and hair. This is why homemade beauty preparations out of egg yolk can impress!
Here are some of the most amazing beauty uses for egg yolk that you may try now:
Removal of Blackheads
One of the most popular beauty uses for egg whites is for eliminating blackheads as it dries just like a commercially-bought face mask. You can actually obtain better results if you use an egg white together with an egg yolk — the white part plucks out those blackheads, while the yolk part closes the pores to keep new blackheads from forming.
Shrinking of Gigantic Pores
Got no blackheads but your pores are humungous? Then it’s time for an egg yolk to shine brighter than egg white. What you need to do is combine the yolk with a little olive oil, and then apply thinly on areas of your face where there are large pores. After 10 to 15 minutes, wash off using cold water. Your face is now primed for some serious selfies!
Alleviation of Acne
Earlier, it was mentioned that an egg yolk has all the fat content of the entire egg. But did you know that the kind of fat it has possesses anti-inflammatory properties? This is the reason why an egg yolk is great for managing acne. Combine it with a little honey and smear on problem areas. Rinse off thoroughly after about an hour.
Smoothening of Rough Skin
Rather than spend a fortune on expensive lotions and creams that vow to put an end to skin roughness, simply count on an egg yolk — all the fat and protein it contains can help in smoothening the elbows, knees, ankles and other parts of the body that are prone to roughness. Mix with olive oil, massage on trouble areas, and wash off after 30 minutes.
Improvement of Wrinkles
Egg yolks are just as impressive as egg whites when it comes to making wrinkles go away. In fact, it can be a lot better since it also has fat it in. So many women swear by the effectiveness of a face mask out of egg yolks and mashed bananas — their B vitamin contents work together in improving the appearance of wrinkles.
Treatment of Split Ends
Say goodbye to that pair of scissors because snipping is not the only solution for split ends. Thanks to the healthy fats and protein in egg yolk, it can be used for making split ends go away. All you have to do is combine an egg yolk with coconut oil, and then apply on the tips of your hair about half an hour before you hit the shower.
Boosting of Hair Health and Beauty
You may also count on egg yolk if you are not happy with the shine, softness and volume of your hair. Before you shampoo, massage egg yolk combined with coconut oil on your hair and scalp for a few minutes. If you are suffering from dandruff, the same may be done to attain much-needed relief from it.
