Egg White Firming Facelift | Get Inspired Everyday!

“This mask can dramatically tone your skin and visibly shrink your pores!” This was said by the author of this recipe, Stephanie Tourles, and I’ll admit I thought it might be a bit dramatic. You see… I can be a bit of a skeptic about these kinds of claims. However, the results are dramatic – it really works wonders on my face. She says it’s like a temporary facelift, and she’s not exaggerating!

This is definitely my number one go-to mask when I want serious results quickly. The only downside I can see, (other than the lifting being temporary and all) is you have to lay quietly somewhere for 15-20 minutes while it dries. You see the problem? Lying still for 15 minutes presents more of a challenge than I’m up to sometimes. All the other masks I use can be applied while on-the-run, so to speak. I always multitask while I’m doing beauty treatments because they take such a long time to set up, and I can usually get a load of laundry done, dishes washed, and floors cleaned in the time it takes a hair treatment and a facial to be finished!

It’s really relaxing to just slow down for 15 minutes for this mask. I find it’s easier for me to relax when I listen to my latest audiobook, and at the end of the treatment my skin looks miles better!  The whole reason for the ‘laying flat while it dries’ is so that the mask lifts and tightens in the right direction. If you’re standing while it dries, it will pull your skin downward – not what we’re after here! I would highly recommend using this mask whenever you have anything big coming your way, and you want to pull out all the stops!

Life has gotten so busy over the last several years, I find myself not taking the time to enjoy the little things. Bringing this mask back into a more regular rotation is probably a good start to slowing down the hyper multitasking, and just enjoying a little time out and some pampering!

Egg White Firming Facelift Mask

  • Author: Stephanie Tourles
  • Prep Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 1 treatment 1x


  • The white of 1 cold fresh egg
  • 1 Teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Combine the egg white and cornstarch in a small bowl with a small whisk or fork. Mix well, and make sure the mixture isn’t lumpy.
  2. Using your finger, apply the mask to a clean face and throat area in a thin, even coat.
  3. Lie flat for 15-20 minutes while the mask dries.
  4. This mask is really tightening. At the end of the drying time you won’t be able to move your face. When it gets to the point where it’s uncomfortable and starting to itch, it’s time to rinse it off. I find it’s easiest to remove this mask in the shower.
  5. This mask is for all skin types and can be used 1-2 times per week.


I always reserve the leftover yolk for my scrambled eggs the next day.

  1. Hi Kari, I am 72 and used egg whites and cornflower 50 years ago. It does make your skin feel beautiful and firm for the 24 hours following the application. I have just paid a substantial sum for an online product claiming to lift your face and I swear that it is just the same product sold in fancy containers.
    Think I will go back to the eggs and cornflour and as there is a money back guarantee with my product I think I will apply for it because it hasn’t performed to it’s claims.
    Perhaps we should start selling our recipe in fancy environmental containers …

    1. So glad to hear you’ve known about this classic face mask, it’s so incredibly effective and I definitely agree I’ve never used a product that works as good! 🙂

  2. I did this recipe tonight and left it on for 5 hours and my skin feels like velvet and looks great. I was told to try to leave it on all night. My question is can you freeze the leftover mixture or how many days will it last in refrigerator. Also can this be done everyday

    1. I’ve never tried freezing this, but I think the egg white would be much runnier. Also the general rule with face masks is to mix things up not using one treatment day after day. Two other treatments that are great for smoothing your skin are my Facial Oil Cleansing and my Pineapple Facial. I hope this helps, and be sure and let me know if you have anymore questions!

  3. Hello Kari. I’m trying this now and just wanted to ask…after rinsing off, do I wash as well? Also, will my skin loose the tightened result if I apply moisturizer afterwards? Thanks so much!

    1. I personally don’t wash my face afterwards because I don’t use soap, but I usually do splash my face with a bit of apple cider vinegar mixed with water as a toner, (10 parts water to 1 part vinegar) then rinse well again. I don’t use moisturizer either after this treatment, but I have oily skin, so moisturizer might work better for you than me. I hope this answers your questions!

  4. Does it get better? Or this all temporary? I’m 43 notice my skin on my neck Change? Is this normal for only 43? Seriously? I need to know the truth? If it’s not normal I need to know, cause I didn’t go out in sun much at most my life except when I was little, but it feels strange?? My skin texture and start sag?? Could I be dehydrated? My mom’s skin was not this way I don’t remember. Please I’m 43 is it normal? Or am I ahead of my schedule here? Please!

    1. This particular mask is temporary skin smoothing and I like to use it for special occasions like going out/birthdays/holidays. Lasting change for the better in your skin comes from a good diet with lots of fruits and veggies. I also like to add superfoods like Hawaiian spirulina to my smoothies because of it’s high content of the skin beauty vitamin A, as well as collagen for it’s wonderful smoothing effects on my skin. I’m not sure if what you’re experiencing is ‘normal’ but you might want to see a dietician and make sure you are hydrated. A good skin care regime is always helpful as well, you might want to try out my post about oil cleansing and my pineapple facial. I sure hope this helps!

    1. I personally prefer to do this mask within 1-2 hours of going out because it does loose it’s firming effect over time. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions!

    1. For me it typically lasts 12-24 hours, with the first 4-6 hours being the best, but I do notice my skin looking perkier for a couple of days afterward.

  5. hello
    what other ingredient can we use instead of corn starch:
    thank you for this mask, can’t waitto try it

    1. You could try using tapioca starch or arrowroot, I’m not sure if it will work exactly the same, but that would be the best place to start. 🙂

  6. can u use this for a home made breast lift? worried about the cornstarch i know eggs are healthy. not sure if the cornstarch is processed, sorry dont know much about it.

    1. I don’t know if this would work or not, it does work well on the face but the results are only temporary. I buy organic cornstarch to avoid GMO’s but even organic cornstarch is processed to some degree because it was milled out of corn, meaning it’s no longer a whole food. I hope this helps and best of luck!
