Welcome back to my new blog, Hope you all doing Great?
I am a true believer of DIY skincare. I prefer to use more of DIY face packs and Hair packs instead of marketed one. Because of this, I try different DIY recipes to know how well a natural product work for any particular problem and I love exploring the facts. This is the reason every now and then I come up with a DIY for skincare. I feel, If I try something which actually works I should share with you guys. It might help, some who are looking for a solution to their beauty problems.
If anyone asks me about one super-food, My straight answer would be “EGGS” obviously because of its enormous benefits not only for health but also for skin, hair and many more. Eggs have been known for their Beauty benefits because of their rich nutritional content.
Till date, most of us are using eggs only as a hair mask. But wait no more, Here I am sharing 5 more different ways to include eggs in your Self-Care Regimen.
So without further ado, Let`s get started 🙂
FOR BLACKHEAD REMOVAL
Get rid of stubborn blackheads using eggs.
HOW TO USE:- You just need 2 tsp of baking soda and 1 egg. Simply mix baking soda with one egg white and apply on your face focusing more on your T-Zone and affected areas. Let it dry for 20 minutes. Before washing off, massage gently for 5-6 minutes. Use this mask once a week until you see visible changes.
BENEFITS:- Egg whites are packed with vitamins and rich in albumin, which have skin-toning properties. By tightening the pores this mask naturally squeezes out the blackheads.
Baking soda helps in neutralising your skin’s pH level, because of this your skin will start to produce less oil, and eventually with the regular use, you will be able to get rid of blackheads.

Most of us are already using egg hair mask but still, I wanted to include it in this list because It is a self-care regimen and hair care is a part of your self-care regimen.
