Egg Whites for Face Care

Separating eggs

Egg whites are a traditional ingredient for home face masks. They tighten the skin, reduce pore size, and leave the skin feeling soft.

Egg whites as a natural face treatment


  • There are many recipes on the Internet for face masks that include egg whites, but the simplest is to take one egg and beat the white until it is frothy. You can also try adding ¾ teaspoon of lemon juice to the egg white.
  • Apply to skin.
  • Leave on overnight, or rinse off after ½ an hour.

Why It Works

Egg whites act as an astringent, pulling skin tight.


Do not use an egg white mask if you are allergic to eggs.
