I’ve been relying on a lot of home remedies to make sure my skin gets enough nourishment post-partum, and the latest mask my mom showed me was an egg mask! I love it because it made my skin feel so tight and fresh after. Especially since apparently egg whites have proteins that can tighten up and firm your face. So in addition to the mask my mom did for me, today I’m sharing with you guys 7 other beauty remedies involving a simple egg!
1. Egg White & Honey Face Mask / Peel
