I think most women know that egg whites are good for the skin as a mask. It has natural collagen that can restore our skin's elasticity avoiding wrinkles. But how many of us know that it's actually used as first aid in burnt skin? I found out about this only today upon reading a very good article that i want to share to everybody. http://jenniepperson.com/category/blog/ Now for everybody who's expose to fire everyday, like housewives while cooking, don't forget to put egg whites on your burned skin and it will naturally heal and won't scar at all! It may sound like a miracle but it does work! Now i think i have to go and buy more eggs.

I just burned my forefingers two days ago and it was really painful. I now have a wound on it and had to bear some pain. Had I known that egg white is good for burns I would have done it immediately. I always have eggs on my refrigerator. And by the way thanks for sharing also that egg could restore skin elasticity. I knw that long before but have forgotten to use it on my face. I always eat eggs for the kids love eggs indeed so maybe whenever I fry egg, I'd spare some for my face.

It's not yet too late to apply egg whites on your burnt skin. Do that until the egg white dries up and is scabbing. They said it should be done every hour. You might still be able to save your skin from scarring.

Okay dear I did! Thanks for this advice. Hopefully this will not really leave any scar on my finger. I hate getting scar. I want my skin spotless as much as possible.

Yes, it does work. I've used this for many years and it takes the burn right out so that it doesn't hurt any more. Once the burn is out, the skin can heal quickly.

my sister in law which is now working in one of the arab countries recently had an accident. while she was cooking, one of the footings of the oven gave up and the boiling food covered her legs and feet. until now, she is suffering from pain it caused her. if only i learned about this first aid, i could have suggested to use egg whites. anyway, thanks for the information.

I just burned my wrist on Tuesday and I still in pain even if I already put some gel on it. The wound still reddish and had like 'smiling' shape and somehow the wound get open back while I am holding a box of newspaper and it touch the wound. I am very sure it will leave me with a scar. If only I got to know this and you posted it earlier.I did not know that white eggs are good for burnt skin..(^^)

HI Toni! Thanks very much for enlightening us that egg white could not only be used as a mask for face but it could also be used for burnt skin. I will keep this in mind.

I am actually more concerned of the burnt thing more rather than putting it on my face as a facial mask. My son is a keloid former and i'm really worried if he get burned. I'm pretty sure it's gonna leave a terrible scar but now that i have knowledge about the egg whites i worry no more.

If egg white work well for burnt skin of your son, then it is great thing because it will not as expensive as some medicines/ointments.

I did not even know that egg whites are good for skin as a mask let alone for burns. That is very interesting! I burnt my hand the other night whilst taking dinner out of the oven. I'm out of eggs at the moment so I can't give it a go... It looks as though its scaring too.... Thank you for sharing this information for the ones like me that were not aware.

Yes, if you have read jennieperson's blog you will find out that egg whites are rich in collagen thus, it can heal our skin.

Yes I did read it... I'm surprised that it is not in first aid books and courses... When I did my training I was never told about it...

hi, thats real because even here in my country the egg is used as first aid,that is very helpful because we use the egg white or they called egg yolk as the first aid to all people who poisoned,they said if someone accidentally drink or eat poisoned that person should have to take the egg yolk to temporarily stop the scattering of the poison in the body.

The egg yolk is the yellow part right? The egg white is always called the egg white and not the yolk. Never heard it's used as an antidote for those who were poisoned though. Thanks for the info.

I saw that recently, and hope to remember it if I ever need to use it. I hope I don't ever have to though.

Me too i hope i never get to use it in burns. But i sure do want to try it as a facial mask.

hi toni:) yes my mom use that to us when we got burns and sometimes mixed it with toothpaste, it actually helps a lot in easing the pain, my mom said if the burn is not severe, home remedies like that is enough. nice post by the way.

Oh dear the man in the blog that i posted actually had a severe one on his face. His whole face was burned and the neighbor saved his face by putting a dozen egg whites on his face. When he was healed in the hospital he came back home with a baby soft skin. Which means in all cases of burns, egg whites can really help to avoid scarring.
