But in a good way. Seems egg whites not only make a great mask for oily skin but also help tighten skin and tone pores. The ingredients in this mask all have a purpose. The egg whites work to soak up excess oil and tighten skin while the witch hazel zaps oil and dries out blemishes. The lemon juice also reduces excess oil. Celebrity makeup artist Kimara Ahnert (Kimara Ahnert Cosmetics, 88 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich, CT 203- 861-1600) offers this at-home recipe for skin success:
1 egg white
6 drops witch hazel
6 drops lemon juice
Whisk egg white until it’s stiff and add lemon juice and witch hazel. Gently apply the mixture to your face, avoiding your eyes. Allow mask to dry for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water and follow with a moisturizer.
