Homemade facial masks can be just as effective as store-bought masks and lighter on your pocketbook as well. Egg whites are believed to narrow and close the pores on your face as well as helping with acne. Mix an egg white face mask with used coffee grounds and it will help exfoliate your skin leaving your face feeling tight and smooth.

Crack open an egg and separate the white from the yolk. Lightly whip the egg white in a bowl. Add in a 1/4 cup of used coffee grounds and mix it together gently.

Apply the facial mixture slowly to your face. Be careful to avoid getting any of the product in your eyes and in your mouth. Allow the face mask to dry for up to 10 minutes.

Wash off the facial mask once it's dry. You should feel the tightness on your skin caused by the egg white drying. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and pat your skin dry with a towel. Be careful not to irritate your new smooth skin by rubbing the towel too hard.


  • Add 2 tsp. of honey to your homemade mask if you'd like. Honey contains many nourishing ingredients and is believed to help as an anti-aging remedy.

  • Use a facial moisturizer once you've removed the coffee and egg white mask. Wearing a facial moisturizer with an SPF of 25 will help protect your skin from sun damage.
