Egg on your face
The idea of adding to my beauty arsenal sort of terrifies me. For starters, I like to think my current products are working for me. Secondly, which product do I trade in? Which products can I use together? And then I think about all the different kinds of products on the market that all claim to do pretty much the same thing: brighten, tighten, lift, glow, erase wrinkles, age spots, and undereye circles and pay your taxes. Okay, not the last part.
So where do I start? I realize that sometimes a routine can become stagnant and a little change is a good thing. As the seasons change or if I'm in a new climate, chances are I should probably consider adjusting my skincare routine. One rule for me is that the products should derive from natural ingredients. Call me crazy but I just don't believe that any human-made ingredient can trump nature. That being said, sometimes nature is messy--and gross. The idea of smearing fresh egg whites on my face makes me cringe. It's just too close to nature. So sometimes scientists have to refine it. I've heard about the beauty benefits of egg whites before--that it's great for lifting and firming the face--and now it comes in a non-yucky product by JOEY called Egg Cream. It doesn't have a fancy name but the results it induces are ambitious.
JOEY claims that its nature-inspired Egg Cream tones, tightens, firms, contours, smooths, improves skin textures, hydrates and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The company reports that studies confirm that when used regularly, there is a reduction of the appearance of superficial lines by 36% and an increase in skin firmness by 21% within 4 weeks. Is it true? I just ordered mine, so I'll let you know!
