Egg White & Honey Face Mask Tutorial & Benefits
Beat the 'lurgy' by giving your skin a healthy glow this week with our egg white & honey face mask.
With our skin and bodies prone to this season’s autumnal germs, we’re doing everything we can to help our skin fiend for itself, whilst holding onto that summer glow.
All you need to make this egg white & honey face mask is:
- One egg (egg white only)
- One tablespoon of honey
Crack the egg white of an egg into a bowl and pour in a tablespoon of honey, before mixing together. Once both ingredients are combined, tie hair back and lather the face mask onto your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave the face mask on until it begins to tighten and then rinse away with water. Your pores should feel tightened and skin should be deeply cleansed.
Now we know that egg whites aren’t the most appealing ingredient to lather onto our faces, but do you know the benefits of them? Not only are they a great source of protein for our bodies, egg whites also help to tighten pores and prevent an accumulation of dirt, which causes blackheads and acne breakouts. By removing exces oil, they’re also proven to improve skin tone, especially dryness, leaving skin with a healthy, desirable glow.
The honey is also beneficial in a face mask, as it is a natural antibacterial that helps to sooth and moisturise skin, whilst softening the face for a smooth, flawless finish like no other cosmetic can do.
We adore indulging in face masks this time of year, especially this egg white & honey face mask, as it helps our skin to adapt to the seasonal changes. Which face masks do you like to pamper yourself with during the autumnal months?

We recommend washing your face with warm water, using the face mask, and then showering to rinse it off :) Hope this helps! xoxo
We recommend using warm water to rinse :) xoxo
You can leave the mixture in the fridge, but we wouldn't recommend leaving it any longer than two days :) xoxo
I tried it once and it felt really good!
We haven't tried this mask with maple syrup so can't recommend doing so, or tell you what the results would be like I'm afraid. Honey is also known to be great smoothing and moisturising ingredient for skincare and is used in lots of products, so we would recommend using it if you can. We can't say if you would find any benefits from using maple syrup.
We hope this helps!
Great! We're so glad. Great tip about the blueberries, thanks for sharing! We'll be sure to try it out.
this mask is more like a creme mask that you wash off with warm water or wipe away with a damp cloth rather than peel off :)
When I tried this I cleansed my face beforehand first with a gentle cleanser and then used the mask for a deeper cleanse as well, so all in all had a super deep double cleanse. But of course everyones skin is different and will have different results when trying this out.
Maybe on your next go add a little less honey so the mask is a tad 'runnier' and easier to smooth over your face
This is a good treatment for every now and then but I wouldn't recommend using it every day.
Honey or egg white???
You only need one egg and one table spoon of honey :)
Both egg whites and honey are natural ingredients so unless you have an allergy or intolerance to either, you should be fine to use them anywhere on your skin. However, we would recommend that if you have any concerns to speak with a medical professional or dermatologist who would be able to advise further on this.
2. I used up all the egg white with honey, so to avoid wastage can I use it up to 5 days?

We haven't tried this personally so couldn't guarantee the results, but there's likely to be lots of variations of this recipe out there for you to try :)
