How to use Easter egg leftovers for a DIY face mask – Thanksgiving.com

When applied to skin, eggs provide extra beautifying protein, minerals and vitamins. The magnesium found in eggs helps to slow the aging process in skin cells, while riboflavin eradicates wrinkle-inducing toxins and free radicals. Protein keeps skin strong and resilient, and the potassium in eggs helps the skin retain moisture. So go ahead, raid your fridge, whip up a mask and take a little “me time” for yourself and your skin.
For each mask, whisk together the ingredients in a bowl and apply to a clean face. Let the mask sit for 15 minutes, unless your skin is noticeably sensitive. If you experience any stinging or discomfort, wash the mask off immediately. Once the mask has dried and you’ve soaked in all the DIY benefits, rinse the mask off, pat your skin dry, and follow up with your favorite serum and moisturizer.
