Egg on Your Face is Good!

Egg on Your Face is Good!

We know that natural preferably organic foods, such as organic eggs, are your best medicine for health. Did you also know that they are also the best ‘tonic’ for healthy, glowing skin?

Indeed, instead of expensive chemical filled toxic potions, look in your kitchen for more affordable, effective skin treatments many of which have been used for centuries. Here are some simple options which can benefit both men and women

Organic Raw Eggs
An organic egg white mask works wonders for cleansing exfoliating and tightening pores, especially if your skin is a little greasy

In contrast, the nutrient dense organic egg yolk mask is particularly good for dry or sensitive skin as it helps to restore the skin`s natural ability to heal and protect itself, and feeds, moisturises and soothes the skin.

If you have normal skin, combine the whites and yolks for a super nutrient boost.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Rich in antioxidants, extra virgin olive oil helps to promote a smooth, radiant complexion and to maintain skin elasticity. It also works well as a cleanser: massage a half teaspoon into your skin for a few minutes and then gently wash your face off with warm water and a clean wash cloth.

Raw Honey
Raw honey has long been prized for its healing properties. When used as a mask, it helps to cleanse and tone the skin, and also moisturises if mixed with avocado and a little olive oil.

For acne prone skin, mix ground cinnamon with raw honey into a mask. Raw honey can also be used with raw sugar as a gentle scrub for glowing skin.

Organic Lemon Juice
Diluted lemon juice is known to be an effective toner for acne-prone skin. It may help with lightening red marks and preventing breakouts by gently exfoliating the skin.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
Raw, unfiltered ACV can be diluted with green tea and used as a toner for all types of skin. Undiluted ACV can also be dabbed on pimples as a spot treatment.

Raw Sugar
You`re told every day not to put sugar in your body, but there`s nothing wrong with using it on your body! Indeed, organic sugar makes an excellent body scrub and polish. Mix with a hint of extra virgin olive or jojoba oil if your skin is dry.

Oatmeal
Oatmeal soothes irritation and calms sensitive skin. Using a coffee grinder or food processor, grind organic oats into a fine powder and use with a little pure water and lemon juice to exfoliate the skin. Combine 1 tbsp of oatmeal with Greek yoghurt and a drop of honey for a soothing face mask.

If you don’t want to be your own skincare ‘formulator’ then try one of Xtend-Life’s skin care products. These products use a combination of both science and nature to get the best possible results in a convenient tube.

    Any advice for a dry-scalp/dandruff sufferer?

    Hello Josh

    In addition to the usual healthy unprocessed diet and ample hydration which we recommend, this is what works well for dandruff/dry scalp:

    1. Rinse hair in warm, but not hot, chemical free water.
    2. As with a shampoo, massage in some hydrated calcium bentonite clay (can be bought online from various sources). This thoroughly cleans and detoxes the scalp and adds in vital minerals to condition the scalp. After a few minutes rinse out.
    3. Use an essential oil. For example, Eucalyptus oil is good for easing itchiness. Essential oil of sage moisturizes and soothes very dry hair. If you can't get any, then good old extra virgin olive oil is fine. Make sure you warm a few drops by in your palm first.Then massage into your hair and scalp.
    4. Use a towel to wrap your hair and keep the heat in for 10 minutes
    5. After 10 mins rinse out the oil and massage in some more hydrated clay.
    6. Thoroughly rinse.
    7. Repeat at least twice a week. The result should be a very clean healthy scalp and vibrant hair. 

    Also avoid store bought hair products which are usually filled with toxic chemicals.

    Hope this helps Josh!

    My pleasure Josh. Let us know how you get on!

    Hello Marie

    The 'hardening oils' you refer to is likely to be sebum combined with dirt. Yes papyre can work but not as effectively as this suggestion:

    1. Steam your face to open your pores. Pour boiled water into a basin, cover your head with a towel and place face over basin for a few minutes.
    2. Immediately give your skin an exfoliating scrub with Oatmeal (see above) . Remove and dry. Use that scrub until we have our natural cleansing product available. Then....
    3. Apply our Deep active cleansing mask which you can find here http://www.xtend-life.com/skincare/Hydrating_Mask_Women.aspx . It is ideal for unclogging pores and also moisturises and soothes. Until you get this mask, make a mask from raw honey and raw egg white.
    4. After 20 mins rinse off mask and apply our Active day care cream. http://www.xtend-life.com/skincare/Day_Cream_Women.aspx which also does not clog pores but protects and moisturises naturally. Or, you may chose a few drops of an Essential oil like bergamot, cedar wood, cypress, frankincense, lavender, lemon and sage which calm but do not clog the skin.

    Do this at least twice a week until you see a noticeable improvement. Then reduce to once a week, then once a month.

    Also please ensure that you are drinking enough pure water to flush out impurities and toxins.

    We look forward to hearing your positive results!

    Cool! Thanks I'll try that

    To tighten the pores, is it sufficient to use egg white only?  Or shall I mix it with some other ingredients??  Thanks.

    Thanks for your question Monica.
    The answer depends on your skin type and what you want to achieve. For example:

    For slightly greasy skin and only pore tightening....
    1. Keep it simple and use an egg white only mask. To acentuate the mask's effectiveness, apply it after steaming and exfoliating with oatmeal as described above to Marie.
    2. As a final rinse to tighten your pores after the mask, gently tone your skin with diluted raw organic apple cider vinegar, or diluted lemon juice or witch hazel extract. If you don't have any of these, you can get a good effect by gently running an ice cube over your skin (made from pure water!)

    For dry skin and pore tightening.....
    1. Use both the egg york and white. Otherwise, follow steps 1-2 above.

    Thanks
    Caramia

    With regard to exfoliants I should mention that we are in the final stages of developing a really good natural one.  Initial testing looks really good.
