By now, most skincare fanatics know that miracle, fix-it-all ingredients don't really exist. In fact, science shows that a beauty routine that incorporates several high-powered ingredients is the best way to combat signs of aging, skin damage, and all those other fun things we deal with on a daily basis. But, how do you know which ingredients are worth the hype? We're making it easy! In this series, we'll give you the must-know info on both trending and mainstay ingredients. Today we're spotlighting a kitchen staple—eggs.
Eggs are like mini powerhouses. Each one packs a punch with a combination of nourishing vitamins and minerals. This potent product is notoriously difficult to package and distribute but (no surprise here) innovative Korean brands have recently been able to bottle up eggs into products you can use daily to fight wrinkles, promote brightness, and minimize the appearance of pores.
The Ingredient: Eggs
Also known as: your favorite breakfast food
Quick take: tightens pores, battles puffiness, nourishes skin with fatty acids and vitamins
Claims to fame: You already know that eggs are packed with body-loving protein and vitamins and those benefits translate easily to your skin. Eggs contain copper, manganese, choline, and vitamins B6, A, and E, all of which promote collagen production, nourish skin, and help to minimize pores and de-puff. Egg whites are also highly effective cleansers.
