5 Ways To Use Eggs in Your Beauty Regimen
October 9 is National Egg Day. Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. In addition eggs serve as an amazing ingredient in several beauty remedies. Here are 5 other uses where a simple egg (and other household items) make for a spa like experience at home.
