Who can argue the key role eggs play when it comes to fixing up a filling, nutritious and yummy meal? They’re the one ingredient that are always on hand and are versatile enough for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts– but as a beauty tool, too?
Yes, eggs are good for your skin as it has the two of the important nutrients for good complexion: choline and lutein. Choline helps make up fatty portions of cell membranes and is essential for healthy skin-cell functioning. Choline also helps your body maintain proper levels of other B vitamins. And that’s super important because your skin needs B vitamins to produce energy and manufacture collagen and elastin, those rubbery proteins that keep skin looking and feeling firm and smooth.
Lutein is another great reason to have eggs for breakfast. This carotenoid antioxidant found in eggs helps preserve skin’s elasticity and prevent free radical damage to skin cells.
