We all know that the vitamins and proteins found in egg whites provide for a healthy breakfast, but did you know that those same vitamins and proteins can work wonders when applied topically to the skin?

To absorb extra oil and sebum using egg whites, you’re going to need 2-3 eggs, a bowl, and a washcloth. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and whisk the whites until frothy.

Apply a thin layer of egg white to your skin like a mask and wait for it to dry, which should take about 20 minutes. Using a wash cloth soaked in warm water, remove the egg whites completely. Because egg whites can dry out your skin, be sure to apply a moisturizer.
