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.

80338 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!

    Thanks for all the helpfull advice through out your blog, some of the stuff i do or have tried while other i havent. My advice would be to try this new anti aging cream from Dr Greenberg. I saw its effects quickly, i thought it was worth it.

    Apply egg white to your acne scars. This will reduce acne scars and prevent further acne.

    There is a negative and a positive terminal that turns on or off the LCD display. It's not important the shape they come in, but these capacitors are designed for one thing, which is storage of the electrical power.

    Your blog isn’t only informative but also extremely artistic too. 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. You are always really kind towards readers like me and help me in my lifestyle. Thank you.

    I think I'll stick with the cream instead of the egg (: Great post though. Thx.

    Its funny I came across this posting since I put egg whites on my face at least 3 times a week, I agree with you; it is just too messy. I happen to be a fan of home made facial masks. Specially since I am going under a some stress which is causing me to break out. I eat healthy and work out regularly but my face is not doing great. I'm getting a lot of scars and they are affecting my confidence. I found a local aestheticitian, her webstie is Boca Facial Fitness , she sugested microdermabrassion, but im only 25 and I am not sure if I should go with this type of treatment. What do you think?

    Bellaplex is claimed to be a natural cream that even replaces Botox, so to avoid all hassles with eggs, cucumbers and so on bellaplex may be the solution.
