Egg yolk face mask

This is one of the home remedies I discussed during my appearance on Wylde on Health June 17, 2011.

This is a simple, effective home remedy for acne. I first heard about this mask from a friend when I was a teenager with acne. I tried it then and found it worked really well! Egg yolks contain vitamins A and E, which are key nutrients for treating acne and scarring. Egg yolks also contain a variety of other vitamins and nutrients; most of the nutrients in an egg are found in the yolk! Egg yolks are also emollient, meaning that they help soften and moisturize skin.

I recommend that patients do the mask every night for about a month, and then once per week for maintenance.

Ingredients:

1 egg yolk

Directions:

  1. Separate one egg and stir up the yolk in a small cup or mug.
  2. Wash face as usual and pat dry.
  3. Apply egg yolk all over face in a uniform layer.
  4. Once yolk has dried, rinse off with lukewarm water.

Notes:

  • One egg yolk will usually last for 2-3 masks, so keep the extra yolk in the fridge for the next day.
  • Don’t use warm/hot water to rinse off the yolk – you will cook it!
