Egg yolks have been used in skin care for as long as people can remember, and they still are as effective as ever.

But now people are rediscovering the power of these all natural ingredients
So everyone, and that includes you, can enjoy that relaxing and satisfying natural spa experience right there in your own home with these egg yolk masks. It’s all made clear; these face mask recipes are as simple as ABC, affordable or downright cheap and you probably have the ingredients already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets.
Why an egg yolk mask; what are the egg yolk benefits for me…or my skin?
An egg yolk mask can be very useful in skin care for a few reasons; it nourishes and can help healing blemishes, but there’s one that stands out from the rest. Because egg yolk is mostly water and fats it is a great emollient and water binding agent; translated to what it means for your skin, the BIG Tripple S……Supple, Smooth and Soft.
🎀Some useful tips
Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry.
When you have applied the egg yolk face mask, make sure you take your time to lie down; place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water.
Honey, Olive oil Egg yolk mask (For dry skin)
A perfectly moisturizing and soothing egg yolk face mask. Honey is a humectant which means it attracts moisture and keeps it where it belongs: under your skin. The olive oil moisturizes even deeper
🎀What do you need:
- 2 Egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon organic Honey (the darker the better)
- 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive oil
- 4 drops Vitamin E oil (optional)
🎀How to do it:
If necessary warm up the honey until it becomes runny (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water (or a few seconds in the microwave)
Mix the honey with the egg yolk and olive oil until you have a smooth and consistent substance
Spread the paste gently and equally with a facial mask brush or spatula on your clean face and neck; keep the eye area clear.
Now lie down again and leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes
Then wash it off with warm water and a soft warm wash cloth and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally tone and apply a moisturizer.
