These days, there are so many new trends in skin care, eggshell membrane may sound like just another fad. However, the membrane of an egg is actually jam packed with nutrients that have many important benefits for the skin. Instead of dismissing it as another passing trend in the ever-changing world of skincare, consider a few interesting things about the nutrients found underneath the shell of a common egg.
What Is Eggshell Membrane?
The membrane of an eggshell is found just in between the shell and the white of the egg. If you have ever peeled a hard-boiled egg, you may have noticed it and probably threw it away without realizing its many benefits. It is intended to protect and nourish the inside of the egg as it grows and develops. It can certainly be ingested as part of any egg dish, but it is now also commonly used in skin care products to take more direct advantage of its many nutrients.
Helps Reverse the Aging Process
Eggshell membrane is found in so many anti-aging skin care products because it is a natural source of collagen. Collagen is very effective in making the skin stronger, firmer and more elastic as it begins to age. It prevents and reverses signs of aging such as sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Many people try to appear more youthful by injecting synthetic collagen into the lines on their face, but it is much safer and more natural to take advantage of the natural collagen found in eggs.
Aide in The Healing Process
There are many types of skin issues that results in sores, blemishes, and scars. This might be something as common as an acne scar or something more painful, such as a severe sunburn. The nutrients found in eggshell membrane function as powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agents. They can help reduce redness and may even be able to reduce the appearance of scars caused by various skin conditions.
