Egg white masks for hair are also fairly common among the beauty conscious. Egg whites contain ingredients that toughen hair and make it longer. There are several kinds of egg white masks that you can make to treat different problems.
Egg white mask for acne
You need an egg white, ½ teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of fresh lime juice. Mix all of them together. Cleanse your face before you apply for best results. You should avoid the area around the eyes – it is very sensitive and it will be made over-dry by this mask.
