Home Made DIY Reduce Visible Face Pores Recipe

face mask

Your face is pretty important to you, no?  I like mine, even if my neck is starting to betray me by sinking into my chest.  Why didn’t I know about this in my twenties?  If you’re young and hot (which, duh, of course you are!) be kind to your neck.  Wear sunscreen with 100 billion SPF, wear hats everywhere, MOISTURIZE!  Still, we all have to do our part to make sure we have a lovely face to present to ourselves in the mirror every morning, even if some of us *ahem* have sagging necks.  Also one of the best worst things about getting older is the visibility of facial pores.  As in, pores you never knew existed will start to show up all over your adorable mug.  Why?  WHY, Universe, whyyyyyyyyy???

Well, whatever.  I’ve already tried arguing with the skin gods, to no avail.  We’ll just have to take it on our own from here, and of course your ever loyal friend (that would be me) has got your back with a good DIY pore shrinking face mask.  Because there’s nothing more satisfying than a DIY beauty recipe with ingredients from your very own kitchen.  Truly.

So let’s go!

DIY pore shrinking mask

Before you start with this mask, wash your face thoroughly, as you would at the end of any busy day.  When it’s all clean and dry (the dry is important here), go ahead and start the beautifying business.  Please, proceed.




  • 1 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch


  • Step 1: Separate egg white from yolk of one egg
  • Step 2: Add 1 teaspoon corn starch to egg white
  • Step 3: Whip egg yolk + corn starch until frothy
  • Step 4: Using a clean brush (you can use a clean blush brush) apply mixture all over face
  • Step 5: Allow mask to completely dry for about 20 minutes or until face feels tight
  • Step 6: Wash face with lukewarm water to remove mask

Repeat as needed up to 2x weekly, but no more than that or you’ll start to mess up the very precious PH-balance of your skin, and nobody, especially me, wants that.

There you go!  Another fun beauty DIY for you and yours.  I’d love to know if you try it and what you think when you do.  Let me know in the comments, or email me: allison@petitelefant.com!  Now go have fun with your face.
