Homemade facial mask recipes

No egg yolk mask in your skin care regimen? Shame on you, every self respecting do-it-yourself skin care aficionada/o should have one built into her/ his portfolio...we said the same about egg white masks by the way; but it is true

Egg yolks have been used in skin care for as long as people can remember, and they still are as effective as ever. In the scuffle that broke out when "modern" cosmetics started to promise eternal beauty, they were pushed to the back a bit. But now people are rediscovering the power of these all natural ingredients

So everyone, and that includes you, can enjoy that relaxing and satisfying natural spa experience right there in your own home with these egg yolk masks. It's all made clear; these face mask recipes are as simple as ABC, affordable or downright cheap and you probably have the ingredients already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets

Why an egg yolk mask; what are the egg yolk benefits for me…or my skin?

An egg yolk mask can be very useful in skin care for a few reasons; it nourishes and can help healing blemishes, but there's one that stands out from the rest. Because egg yolk is mostly water and fats it is a great emollient and water binding agent; translated to what it means for your skin, the BIG Tripple S……Supple, Smooth and Soft

There you can also find out more about many other possible ingredients and ways to combine them into your own signature facial mask recipe


Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page

When you have applied the egg yolk face mask of choice make sure you take your time to lie down; place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water


To make your face mask experience even more satisfying we suggest you check our quick facial tips page. These will smooth things out just a little bit more

Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
