DIY- Excellent Skin Eggs-cellent Mask

Want younger, clear skin that looks and feels as smooth as porcelain?
Time to head to the kitchen with me!
We're gonna cook up an "egg-cellent" egg mask recipe that will take your skin to "your-skin-looks-amazing" town.
 What you need to get from your kitchen:
1 egg (you will be separating the white and yolk)
1 teaspoon Honey (I used organic honey)
1/4 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar (I used Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar- got it at Whole Foods)
*you can NOT use regular vinegar.

A fast little lesson on why Apple Cider Vinegar is so great: pardon me while I put my learning glasses on and type this: beauty class in now in session:
Vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin. It is also antiseptic, preventing the proliferation of bacteria, viruses, or yeast that trigger infection. It can dissolve excessive fatty deposits at the surface of the skin and reduce scaly or peeling conditions. Lastly, vinegar regulates the pH of the skin.

HOW IT'S MADE:  The best quality apple cider vinegar is made with fresh organic apples that have been crushed and allowed to mature (aka ferment)  in wooden barrels. The good kind (like the Bragg ACV)  retains the “mother,” which is a natural sediment on the bottom of the bottle and it should be a little cloudy and sort of honey colored.
Why you're gonna want to put on your: I HEART APPLE CIDER VINEGAR SHIRT...
It  has a tonic action that increases blood circulation in the small capillaries that help keep skin clean and flushed from toxins. It is also antiseptic, stopping the growth of bacteria, viruses, or yeast that trigger infection. It can reduce scaly or peeling conditions on the skin too! Lastly, vinegar regulates the pH of the skin. (watch the video as I explain)

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR contains natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals and is rich in antioxidants.   It has Vitamins A, B and C, beta carotene, bioflavonoids, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, iron, sulfur, iron, fluorine, silicon, boron and pectin. How's that for super vinegar! It naturally balances the pH balance of the skin, fight bacteria, infections and is a natural anti-fungal, AND it reduces inflammation. It is an awesome astringent (toner), for sensitive and oils skin. Vinegar can even do wonders for acne and itchy skin conditions due to eczema and sunburn and can help blast fungal infections, warts and even skin tags!
Honey, I love you, let me count thy ways:
 The natural occurring acids in honey acids are very safe to use on skin and can loosen bonds between the dead skin cells junking up your skin, making it easier to shed the dead layer and reveal your smoother  more glorious skin underneath! These acids also increase elasticity, balance out oily skin, stimulate collagen production, and minimize lines and wrinkles (woo hoo!) making you look younger and more "new and improved"!
And honey is safe for the most sensitive skin...honey has even more awesome qualities, but after all I'm sure you don't want to spend all day readin my blog! ha ha

Totally Eggs-cellent dude: (why eggs are "egg-ceptional"...pun totally intended):
An egg mask is one of the best natural remedies for irritated skin. Eggs contains amino acids that help in reduction of any inflammation. Eggs not only smooth and tighten the skin, but help shrink pores. Even put it on your neck to tighten any skin that isn't a tight as you'd like!

*watch for my favorite part: grandma kandee in the video! tee hee hee
