Discussions that mention benzoyl

Acne board


Erin, or anyone else using the egg yolk mask-- i'm not getting much response from the other egg yolk topics...

i've used the egg yolk mask for about 6 days, tonight will be the 7th night. i'm a little unsure as to whether it's working or not. i have several new pimples- mostly little 'open' (yucky) ones. nothing horrible, but i didn't really get that kind while on the benzoyl peroxide. is this perhaps the 'cleansing of impurities' phase of the mask?

i just keep reading from people on this forum that egg yolk isn't too great for oily skin, so i just want to make sure i'm not doing something terrible to my skin.

i guess i'll just stick it out a while longer...

any response would be much appreciated. :)

Hi! :) Yes, this is the 'cleansing of impurities". I had new open pimples 2. They will go away soon though. My skin used to be soooo oily but ever since I started doing this, it isn't near as oily :) good luck,

Yes, definitely, it does work better if you use it twice a day. It also depends on ur skin types as well. But when u cleanse your face with a cleanser, make sure you limit to twice a day before applying egg yolk. For added benefit, i recommend adding baking soda to ur cleanser.

I dont use egg whites alone.. sometimes i add a little to the egg yolk. Egg white can cause breakout.


bluetonic- i've been using the egg yolk mask for about 2 weeks now. it's helping a whole lot with red marks and i'm not getting any big pimples anymore :) but i have several very tiny pimples on my forehead and chin. (before i started using the yolk i broke out mostly on my cheeks and only mildly on my forehead and chin...)

what would you suggest? should i use benzoyl peroxide after the mask (i don't really want to since it really dries out my skin but if that's what it takes...)? or should i start using the yolk twice a day? i figure my acne was probably worse than most of the people using the mask- people with moderate acne are probably scared to try egg yolk, so it might take me a little bit longer than it has for the rest of the yolk-users.

any suggestions would be appreciated. :)
iv just got off of benzoyl peroxide , iv basically been doin the egg yolk for 4 nites...3 of those days i did them in the morning and nite. The first 2 or 3 days...i got some break outs...nuttin serious just some lil ones...then after the 3rd day i stop gettin break outs...and during my 4th day...i got 1 lil tiny one..cant realle see it if u look in the mirror realle realle closely..so rite now..am just waiting for the old ones to go away and the ones that i had before i use the egg yolk...

Since my face has cleared up from either having pms or eating too much fish I have used the egg yolk on my face one morning,that night and this morning.The results our UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!! I thought that I would never in my life find something that would control the oiliness on my forehead.But this eggyolk mask is Working and also evening the tone.It seems to be erasing in just a few days 20 years of damage.I am so HAPPY! I think that as long as I use this egg yolk mask twice a day and wash it off afterwards instead of just rinsing that I will eventually have a complexion that I can finally be happy with.I'm not getting any new breakouts since I have been following this routine,
First I wash with Phisoderm, next the egg yolk mask,rinse ,and then wash off with Dr.Bronners soap, and follow up with a light cover of benzoyl peroxide over face to prevent breakouts.I am so glad I found this board.

if you don't mind me asking, what kind of skin/acne do you tend to have? (oily/comb/dry, mild/moderate)
cause the yolk has really helped my moderate acne to become more mild. i'm only washing my face with a natural glycerine soap and i just started putting aloe vera gel on my cheeks a couple days ago. but i'm wondering if following a routine more like yours would help me clear up faster/100%.
How many people have had the initial breakout while using benzoyl peroxide at the same time (after washing the mask off)?
