The Incredible Edible Egg

Just for the record these eggs came from a neighbor, aren't they gorgeous? With the addition of chicks to my family I am interested in anything "EGG". Most recently I found this video on youtube that tells you how to make an egg facial mask. I tried it and was very surprised at the firming effects of the mask. This will become part of my weekly routine and I like that the ingredients are simple and available in my kitchen.

Egg Facial Mask

1 egg
1/4 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. honey
1-2 drops lavender essential oil (optional)

Use only the egg yolk for dry skin and only the white for oily skin. If you have combination skin use both.

Beat egg yolk, white, or entire egg if you are using it. Add remaining ingredients and beat again. Apply to your skin using your fingers or a new paint brush. Let dry, about 10-15 minutes. Remove by rinsing well in lukewarm water. Pat your face dry.

    This facial mask sounds interesting. I'm into natural remedies, as chemicals always seemed to make my skin worse.
