Destroy Your Wrinkles with this Simple Home Remedy
There are a few health tips that always stick with me; one of them being: if you can’t eat it don’t put it on your skin.
As we age, our skin takes just as bad of a beating as any other part of our anatomy. Whether it be due to years of sun exposure or bad dieting habits, the skin eventually loses elasticity and needs a little assistance in regaining its past glory.
Here is a simple, cheap, effective home remedy to treat skin in all areas on the body that are prone to wrinkling – especially the face! The secret ingredient is Egg Whites!
Egg whites contain several vitamins, and pure protein compounds that will help nourish as well as tighten your skin, whether it be under your eyes, your forehead, or even the neck.
-To prepare the mask, separate the yolks from the whites of two eggs.
-Beat the eggs whites in a bowl until frothy.
-Dip your fingers into the foam, and then rub it onto your face.
-Let the egg white dry for the next 30 minutes.
-Wash off the mask with cool water, and pat your skin with a clean towel.
Moisturize, and you’re done!
LADIES AND BOYS: If you were getting ready for a night out on the town, you can use this mask, moisturize, and then apply your make-up as usual.
You can also add Vitamin E oil, honey, and milk to your mask in order to change the texture or increase the nutrient content. Always buy and use organic, and discontinue if you find it is causing you irritation!.

The aging of skin is a natural process but still a little hard to swallow. Many factors affect the elasticity of skin, such as sun exposure and diet. Even the most pampered skin eventually begins to show signs of aging and develops wrinkles. Some over-the-counter products contain ingredients, such as alpha hydroxy acid, that may effectively reduce wrinkles, but they can be costly, and the effects short-lived. You might be able to save money and reap the same benefits by relying on the protein found in egg whites.
As you age, your body, and specifically your skin, begins to change. An older body produces less sebum, the oil that helps moisturize skin. The fat layer under the skin surface starts to fade, and this fat gives skin a rounded appearance. These are two of the key factors that lead to wrinkles. Jerome Z. Litt, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, suggests that the protein in egg whites helps tighten skin to reduce wrinkles.

Dr. Litt recommends applying the egg white face mask to skin before an evening out to provide temporary relief from wrinkles. To prepare the mask, separate the yolks from the whites of two eggs. Beat the eggs whites in a bowl until frothy. Dip your fingers into the foam, and then rub it onto your face. Let the egg white dry for the next 30 minutes. Wash off the mask with cool water, and pat your skin with a clean towel. Moisturize, and apply makeup as usual.
No medical evidence suggests that an egg white face mask permanently removes wrinkles. MedlinePlus does state that eggs contain vitamin A, and applying vitamin A to skin may promote wound healing and reduce wrinkles. An egg white face mask is a frugal approach to help firm up skin and smooth out fine wrinkles. Adding additional ingredients to the mask may enhance the effect. The website Spa Playground suggests using the egg whites if your skin tends to be oily. You may add vitamin E oil, honey and milk to the egg white concoction to change the texture and improve the mask's benefits.
Other habits will help improve the quality of your skin and possibly reduce wrinkles. Choose cosmetics that contain sunscreen to protect the skin from UV damage. Moisturize often, because one affect aging has on the skin is drying. MayoClinic.com suggests that a diet rich in vitamins A, C, B3 and E may also help reduce wrinkles. Studies are inconclusive about the effect of nutrition on the skin, but a healthy diet keeps you feeling your best and improves your overall fitness. If you develop any irritation from the mask, this may be an indication of an allergy or sensitivity to the egg white. Discontinue use of the mask if it causes a rash or acne breakout.
