Moisturizing Honey & Egg Face Mask


Moisturizing Honey & Egg Face Mask

Do you have dry, tired looking skin?  If you're suffering from skin that doesn't retain moisture and is consistently dry then this moisturizing honey and egg face mask is the one for you! (If you're looking to nourish your skin for it to be more supple, then this mask will also work).

Honey has antioxidant properties and is really good at retaining moisture in your skin.  The antioxidants help to keep all the free radicals from affecting your skin.  Free radicals are chemicals that are in the every day air you breathe.  Unfortunately, these can include and are not limited to smog and cigarette smoke.  Free radicals can damage your skin if they get into your pores and make your face look even more tired.

The egg is important in this recipe because the egg whites help to tighten your pores thus giving you a smoother finish and the egg yolks help to nourish your dry skin and it also contains Vitamin A which is actually found in many acne products.

Read on for the recipe, after the jump.

Ingredients:

1 egg
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp cornmeal (or any thickening agent-I use powdered milk)

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients together.  It may be easier to beat the white of the egg first so that it is stiff enough to apply the mixture but the powdered milk or cornmeal should help create a paste.  Apply this mask to your face using your fingertips and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse off thoroughly and pat dry.

Enjoy!
