You know something's good when it's sold in packages of 12. Eggs are incredibly versatile
, and so this is my ode to those slimy insides that make breakfast worth waking up for.
(and get ready for some pretty egg-plosive puns)
Step 1: Eggsotic Beauty Product
If your hair has been lacking that extra something-something lately, worry no more! You don't have to shell out the major bucks, but break a few eggshells instead!
Eggs are rich in proteins that are very similar to those found in our hair, and so make great conditioning and strengthening masks. Try beating an egg (or a couple yolks if your hair is especially dry) with a bit of olive oil, and apply to your hair once frothy. If you want to smell less like an omelette, and more like you've just come home from the salon, add a couple drops of a scented oil. Leave on for about 20 minutes, and then rinse with warm water.
Fun tip: If Fido's coat has also been lacking luster, add a scrambled egg to his food every week. Your pets will love this tasty treat, and they'll be turning heads at the dog park in no time. As always, raw eggs are off limits, because they could be contaminated with salmonella.
Let's move this eggy beauty regimen south of the hairline to your face. Egg yolks and whites both have valuable qualities on their own for your skin, so there are a couple different facial treatments to do with eggs.
With egg whites, you can make a soothing anti-aging cleanser that smooths the skin. Whisk whites with a little bit of water, and wash over your face. After rinsing off, you should find puffiness diminished, and your pores looking smaller.
Egg yolks are very rich in Vitamin A, which is great for moisturizing. Just as you did with the whites, whisk these yolks with some water and use to wash your face.
If you have a large supply of eggs, perhaps a chicken coop all your own, alternate between these cleansers each night for best results.
