Eggs are one of nature's most perfectly balanced foods, containing all the protein, vitamins (except vitamin C), and minerals essential for good health. Eggs are considered a complete protein because they contain all of the essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" of protein. In addition, eggs contain thirteen essential vitamins and minerals. They are rich in the B vitamin family, and also contribute vitamins A and D. In particular, egg yolks are one of the greatest sources of riboflavin and vitamin B12.
Eggs can be used to improve the texture of dry or oily skin. Egg yolks are rich in lecithin and other fatty acids which can add moisture to the skin. Egg whites contain albumin, a simple form of protein that helps tighten pores and also helps remove excessive oil. There are lots of recipes for egg facial masks on the Internet.
In hair care, eggs are an egg-cellent natural conditioner. The proteins in eggs can help soften hair, strengthen hair and leave it shiny and manageable. Eggs yolks help moisturize hair because they contain lecithin. Lecithin is great for those with wavy, curly, or coily hair since these hair types are more prone to dryness and breakage. Lecithin helps moisturize dry, damaged, or brittle hair so that it can turn into smooth, moisturized, silky, and shiny hair.
