DIY Skincare: Egg White & Lemon Juice Mask

It’s been a while since I posted a ‘make your own skincare’ post. This recipe is perfect for this time of year and is suitable for all skin types. It gently exfoliates whilst brightening, toning and clarifying your skin.

What you need

  • Still bottled water
  • 1 large egg white
  • Half of a lemon

*Optional – Witchhazel or rosewater (from you local health shop)

Beat the egg white until it forms stiff peeks.

Squeeze one teaspoon of lemon juice from the lemon.

Gently fold the juice into the egg white. Apply it to your face and neck, leave it for 2o minutes to work its magic. Rinse with lukewarm water and a muslin cloth (or cotton wool pads), pat dry.

If you have any witch hazel or rosewater you can dab some on the skin. Follow with your moisturiser.

This mask last 6 hours in the fridge. I tend to make a batch when I have someone to share it with. Once a week will do it!

If like this post, please share :)

    I’ve always been using just the liquid form of the egg white. Never thought of beating it. I usually do this once a day for two weeks before something I want my face clear for. Overkill but my face breaks out badly and this method is the only one to work thus far. It even lasts about 1-2 weeks after of not doing it. But I’m definately going to beast it from now on :P totally avoids the messy part XD
