Applying a mask made of egg white helps in improving complexion. It hydrates the skin and nourishes it well to provide a natural and long lasting glow. Take the yolk of an egg and mix it with some yoghurt. Apply this mask on your skin and let it stay until dry. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Eggs are crammed with minerals and nutrients that help in boosting skin health and remove sun tan effectively. When used on a regular basis. An egg and honey mask can gradually fade the darkened skin. To make the mask mix egg white with honey and apply it on the tanned skin. Rinse with lukewarm water after 10-15 minutes.

3. Tightens pores

An egg mask may provide you with a younger looking skin due to its amazing quality of minimizing the pores. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines from the skin due to presence of riboflavin. Beat the white of an egg so that it attains a consistency of thick foam. Apply this all over your face and neck and let it stay for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.

If you have dry and flaky skin, try a mask made of egg yolk, olive oil and lemon juice. Apply a mixture of these ingredients on your face and neck and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water and apply a mild moisturizer.

Eggs help in gently drawing out excess oils from the pores while exfoliating dead skin cells when mixed with orange juice and oatmeal. It also reduces blackheads and provides a flawless skin. Mix egg white with 1 tablespoon oatmeal and orange juice. Mix well and apply it on your skin. Wash off with warm and cold water alternatively and apply a natural moisturizer.

The minerals and other nutrients present in eggs help in making the skin firm and tone it effectively. You just need to whip an egg (both egg white and the yolk) so that it forms froth. Apply it on your skin and let it dry. Wash with lukewarm water.
