The Weird Breakfast Ingredient That Should Be in Your Skin Care Products

Your brunch fave is actually really good for your skin.
Why You Need Egg Beauty Products

Likely when you think of eggs, a delicious cheesy omelet with a side of home fries and a mimosa comes to mind. (Just us? Never mind…) But the brunch staple is actually not just a morning must—it’s a skin care savior! (Hey, there’s a reason it’s in so many DIY recipes.) What’s so great about eggs you ask? Well egg whites, namely, contain a protein called albumin, which is great for oily skin as it helps tighten and shrink sebum-producing pores. In addition, egg whites are awesome at helping to tone up skin and beat acne. Bottom line: what’s not to love? Scroll on for four egg beauty products we’re eyeing right now. Mimosa optional.
