Eggs are one of the healthiest foods we consume – they are rich in essential vitamins, minerals and proteins which our body requires on a daily basis. Eggs also contain some amino acids which the body can’t produce on its own. Besides being important for our health, eggs have numerous cosmetic uses as well. The membrane that lines the interior of the shell can be used to accelerate the healing process, and is also great for our hair.
The white membrane of egg shells can be used as a natural bandage for wounds due to the amazing healing benefits it possesses – just apply it on the wound every night before going to bed and you will be amazed by the results!
The membranes can also be mixed with some olive oil and kept in the fridge as a homemade hair mask that can improve the quality of your hair. Just apply the mask on your hair and leave it on for 20 minutes every time you wash your hair and you will reap the benefits soon.
