While I have not been diagnosed with acne at all, I do get occasional pimples.
I especially get vicious blackheads randomly or from ingrowns because of my hirsutism. They can be quite the pain in the nuts!
I love making soap! I plan on opening a small online retailer to sell my soaps very soon. I love homemade banana, lavender, cinnamon, and avocado soaps!
Making soaps from scratch means you have no chemicals in your product that may irritate your skin.
I never made egg soap, which is pretty easy, if you are familiar with soap making.
I typically stick to cold-press or hot process soap making (mainly cold) and when your soap has started to trace, you would add the egg in its liquid state.
Doing a little research on soaps, I noticed that Swedish egg soaps got rave reviews for skin care. Soap for facial skin is usually not always recommended, but I have yet to see any bad reviews on egg soap.
Egg is a wonderful conditioner for skin and hair. I use to use it on my hair a lot as a conditioning mask before getting dreads.
Additionally, it helps to reduce pores, thus reducing the chance of inflammation.
If that’s the case, I wonder what it will do for the appearance of ingrown hairs? I mean, if it helps reduce pores, maybe the chance of a hair growing in reverse would be reduced too since the pore would be smaller.
That’s just my assumption.
You can search “Swedish Egg Soap” on Amazon and you will see the wonderful reviews on this breakfast soap!
The only thing I do not like about many of these soaps is that they may contain lanolin, which is a thick, waxy-like grease component, used in commercial lotions and hair products for moisturizer. But, because it is thick, it could clog pores and make your hair greasy and limp. And plus it comes from sheep and some folks prefer products that do not contain animal substances.
It may be worth a try if you suffer from acne. If you do buy it, let me know what you think! Hell, I may buy (or make) it for myself soon!
Thanks for reading!
