Egg Whites

Egg Whites are one of the top sources of protein, ranking up there with lean meat, poultry and fish. More than half of a full egg’s 6 grams of protein, in fact, comes from the egg white. A single egg white offers 4 grams of protein without the yolk’s fat and other detriments. You’ll get no fat, in fact, unless you fry up the egg white in greasy oil or butter. Opting for low-fat protein sources as a regular part of your diet can also reduce your risk of heart disease.

Egg White - Home remedy for Zits: Make a mask from egg whites and apply to skin.

Egg White - Home remedy for Excessive Facial Hair:  A face mask made up of egg whites, sugar, and corn flour can be applied to the area where hair growth is not needed. Once dry, the mask can be rubbed off using a damp washcloth or wet fingers. This mask also acts like a scrub and has a cleansing action on the skin.
