Collagen-Boosting Egg and Cucumber Face Mask

If you want great skin then you want more collagen. Is there any way to support
collagen production with a homemade facial? There are myriad ways with nutrient-rich facials, one of the best being the egg and cucumber face mask. This facial combines some of the key ingredients for collagen production, including vitamin C, silica (if you use the cucumber skin) and the amino acid proline. Add some frankincense essential oil to promote cellular regeneration, and you have a great recipe for helping the body create new, gorgeous skin, no expensive pills or beauty supplies required.

Cucumber not only supplies vitamin C, silica, and even organic acids to help with collagen production and skin toning, but it is also cooling, soothing, and anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is something you do not want, not only is it a sign of too much free radical production and not enough antioxidants to balance the destructive process, it also in itself is putting a toll on your complexion. Let fresh cucumber reduce the inflammation, tighten pores, and help the skin produce more collagen, naturally.

A basic egg white mask is a staple beauty treatment. Why? Because as whipped egg white dries on your face it refines pores, tightens the skin, and increases circulation. Egg whites are also a source of amino acids, including proline. These amino acids are necessary for the formation of new collagen, which is a protein found in all connective tissue.

To make this egg and cucumber face mask for increased collagen production (among so many other beauty benefits) you will need:

  • 2 inches of fresh cucumber, with skin
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 drops of frankincense essential oil

Whip together the cucumber and egg whites in the blender on the lowest setting until you have a nice froth. Pour into a glass or ceramic bowl and add the frankincense. To really maximize the benefits of this homemade face mask, start by gently massaging your face to get the blood flowing. This will help the skin to absorb more nutrients. Rinse with warm water and then apply the mask. Leave on for fifteen minutes, rinse, and pat dry. Keep up the excellent skin care with a nutrient-rich moisturizing face lotion. Also, don't forget to really boost your diet with vitamin C and healthy sources of amino acids, such as eggs, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes.
