10 Vintage Beauty Tips to Use More Often


6. Eggs

For ages eggs were used in cosmetics as they enrich your skin and hair with vitamins, minerals and proteins. Eggs are compatible with many food items which makes them really multi-purpose product. Combined with different ingredients, eggs become suitable for any type of skin. Eggs can reduce eye-puffiness, narrow pores, moisturize your skin and make it more elastic. For the truly adventurous, eggs can be rubbed in the hair and rinsed. This acts as an inexpensive substitute for conditioners by replacing lost protein in the hairs. But the main point here is to use cold water while washing your hair to remove the egg. Otherwise you risk having pieces of boiled egg straight in your hair-cut. So it is better to mix egg with lemon juice, for example, or natural oils.

As a cure for wrinkles, egg white can be spread on the face, left for a short time and rinsed. It is important to moisturize your skin after such treatments as using pure eggs can cause dryness. If you want to remove excessive tan mix egg white with honey and apply it to your face for 10 minutes. Do not be frightened if the mask emits a bad smell – it happens with uncooked eggs when they start drying.
