BEAUTY AND THE EGG
A natural beauty recipe
This remedy is a godsend and I've used it on countless occasions. It's especially good before a night out as it's a temporary facelift without the surgery. It works better than the countless creams I've tried and it's 100% natural. Botox in a shell (I kid you not.)
Tools required: 1 egg.
Prep time: none
Takes: 5 minutes
1. For best result exfoliate before hand.
2. Take one egg, crack and separate the white from the yolk. (Dispose of yolk or keep for hair mask ... that's another post) Give the white a quick whip (only for 10 secs or so)
3. Slap it on ... pat it all over your face and let it dry. Soon you'll be transformed into a Barbi that's half your age! (err see disclaimer)
Note: Try NOT laugh when it's dry. If you do it cracks and you'll get to see what you'll look like as an old woman. It's hideous ... but if you want to freak out your other half out then it's WELL worth doing.
4. Simply wash off. Feels just lovely.
For best results: If you have dry skin, follow with a 10 minute pure honey mask for ultimate moisturisation.
Disclaimer: you won't look like Barbi and you won't really look half your age but you WILL look better and appear younger looking as it does smooth fine lines in my opinion. Also I can't take responsibility if you're allergic to egg white. I suggest a test patch. Bear in mind it does sting a little when it goes on but that's normal, however if it's too uncomfortable wash it off.
