We all know that eggs are an important source of protein but eggshell membrane, egg whites and egg yolks have a number of health benefits as well. Specifically, they are full of elements that can be extremely beneficial for healthy skin. More and more often, the parts of the egg are starting to appear on the ingredient list for high-end skin care products. It may seem strange but stop and consider some of the amazing benefits of the egg for your skin.
Eggshell Membrane Helps Erase Wrinkles
You may not think you know what eggshell membrane is, but you have definitely seen it before. It is the thin, clear substance found in between the egg’s shell and its white. You probably toss this part of the egg away but, in fact, it is packed with a natural source of collagen. This means that, when used in your skin care products, eggshell membrane can help fill in the fine lines and wrinkles that occur as a natural part of the aging process. It is found in many anti-aging lotions and serums, providing a healthy alternative to collagen injections.
Egg Whites Create Smooth Skin
Egg whites are widely considered the healthiest part of the egg to eat but that is not all that they can do for your body. The white of an egg is a natural astringent, which means that it can help balance out skin that tends to be overly oily. Additionally, it helps to shrink pores and tighten up loose skin, creating a more youthful appearance. Simply mixing the egg white with lemon juice and applying it to your face can create great results, or you can choose a skin care product that makes use of the egg whites.
Egg Yolk Is a Powerful Moisturizer
Many people avoid eating the yolk of the egg because it is mostly comprised of fat but the fat content and ability to bind to water actually make it a powerful moisturizer. It has a unique ability to trap moisture in your skin, helping to avoid dry, irritated, flaking skin. It is also full of nutrients that help maintain general healthy skin cell function. Because it is so effective in moisturizing the skin, it is often found in soothing face masks.
