Have you ever tried egg soap for the face? It’s an ancient Japanese beauty secret and it’s starting to gain recognition in the United States. It is said that Japanese women start using egg soap as early as their teenage years, and continue using it until they’re 80. The reason? Egg soap is one of gentlest soaps you can use on your face, and it has vitamins and minerals that will benefit any skin type.
The yolk of a chicken egg contains nutrients like vitamin A, D, B6, B12, zinc, iron and copper. When used as a facial cleanser, these nutrients are absorbed into the skin to gently cleanse pores while also nourishing skin cells. Egg soap is also known to be great at reducing acne by killing bacteria on contact with its anti-bacterial properties.
