Egg-cellent ideas for zero waste
The ultra-utilitarian egg is a kitchen staple, but it has several other surprising uses around the house.
Use egg yolks to make a moisturising facial
If you have dry skin that needs moisturising, an egg yolk makes a great natural facial. Oily skin does better with the egg white (to which you can add a little lemon or honey), and normal skin can take the entire egg. Separate the egg as needed, and beat the part that suits your skin. Then apply the beaten egg to the area you want to treat, relax and wait 30 minutes, then rinse.

Out of regular white glue? Egg whites can act as a glue substitute when gluing paper or light cardboard together.
