Face Mask recipes

Every self respecting do-it-yourself skin care aficionada/o should have an egg white face mask build into her/ his skin care regime...we said the same about egg yolk masks by the way; but it's true

Egg whites have been used in skin care for as long as people can remember, and they still are as effective as ever. In the scuffle that broke out when "modern" cosmetics started to promise eternal beauty, they were pushed to the back a bit. But now people are rediscovering the power of these all natural ingredients

So everyone, and that includes you, can enjoy that relaxing and satisfying natural spa experience right there in your own home with these egg white masks. It's all made clear; these face mask recipes are as simple as ABC, affordable or downright cheap and you probably have the ingredients already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets

Why an egg white face mask; what are the benefits of egg whites for me…or my skin?

An egg white mask can be very useful in skin care for many reasons. An egg white is protein, vitamin, and mineral rich so it nourishes your skin

It is especially known to cleanse, exfoliate and lighten the skin. But it is most famous for being a very effective astringent which means it tightens and firms your skin. This in turn means it is a very potent wrinkle remover

There you can also find out more about many other possible ingredients and ways to combine them into your own signature facial mask recipe


Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page

When you have applied the egg white face mask of choice make sure you take your time to lie down, place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water

Face mask recipes

Basic Egg white face mask

(normal to oily skin)

The most basic egg white face mask, strength in simplicity. It improves skin tone and your face will feel very clean and tight after you used it


What do you need:

  • 1 Egg white


How to do it:

There are basically two ways to do this, the first is to simply massage the egg white gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck

The second way is to whisk the egg until it is frothy and then spread it on your clean face and neck. Whichever way you choose keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask to dry completely

Then wash it off with lukewarm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside


That was easy? Egg white is a valued ingredient in natural skin carerecipes, and it can be mixed with many others. Look around and carefully experiment and add whatever ingredients you think are useful to you

Then wash it off with alternately cold and warm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer




Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
