Egg Mask Recipes

My grandmother applied an egg mask to her face once a week to keep her skin fresh and glowing, and you can make variations based on your skin type.

The egg mask, a classic facial, has been used for centuries. It consists simply of a raw egg spread on the face, left to dry, and then rinsed off with cool water. Below are a few variations on this at-home beauty staple. Yield: 1 to 2 ounces, enough for 1 facial mask.

Egg mask for dry skin: Mix together 1 whole egg and 1 tablespoon of honey.

Egg mask for oily skin: Mix together 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon of oatmeal. This mask is especially good for removing blackheads.

Egg mask for normal skin: Mix together 1 whole egg and 1 teaspoon of fresh sour cream. Sour cream is rich in lactic acid and helps soften and remove surface impurities and dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft and smooth.

To use: Spread on your face and neck, and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well with cool water.
