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

5 from 2 reviews


  • 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. I have an event coming up Saturday night and want to try this! How long does it last, or how long in advance should I do it??

    • I find the best results with this mask is to apply it 4-5 hours before any event (or so) as it does wear off over time. Also with any facial treatment I always recommend trying something new when the ‘stakes’ aren’t so high! I would definitely give it a try before Saturday if you can. Some itching around the edges as it dries is normal, but there shouldn’t be any other kind of discomfort. I just thought I’d mention it in case you have sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin, and this treatment is quite soothing, but of course we’re all different! Let me know how it goes or if you have any questions!

    • I don’t know if you can wear this face mask that much. The general consensus is to rotate different facial treatments. Each person is different, but I personally have tried this more than 2x per week.

  2. Hi I am 26 years and my skin is loose n fine lines are seen under eyes n forehead n also occur dark circle under eyes.what I will do to remove it

    • Hi Rabia, I can’t advise you on what might work well for your skin, you should always consult an expert. Some common themes to help for healthier skin are to make sure you are properly hydrated and getting enough water. Also a good diet makes more impact on your skin than topical treatments. This firming facelift is a temporary effect, so I would try adding a good quality moisturizer that’s right for your skin as well because it seems like you may have dry skin from your description. I hope some of this helps!

  3. I read about using egg yolk, vit E oil and cider vinegar to remove wrinkles and toning your skin

    If I were to do this with the left over egg when si you suggest I do this regiment before, after or every other day from your mask facelift

    • You could try tapioca or arrowroot starch instead. The egg white on it’s own does have a good effect, but the starch really helps it stay on your face. I hope this helps and be sure and let me know if you have any more questions!

    • Having a good skin care regime, drinking plenty of water, and eating lots of fruits and veggies are some basics that the experts agree make for good skin. I don’t have any answers for loose skin, but I would suggest talking to an expert.

    • I’m sure a blow dryer would work quickly, but you do want to lay flat if at all possible so the mask dries with gravity in your favor!

  4. 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 …

    • 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! 🙂
