Natural Ways to Tighten Your Skin
1. Egg White Mask
The first option is to use egg whites. Egg whites are in many DIY face masks, especially those meant to promote healthy and youthful skin.
Why egg whites?
Egg whites are a natural source of essential nutrients and albumin protein. This is what improves elasticity and tightens your skin. As the skin cells begin to rebuild, the skin on the neck and face looks younger and achieves a natural glow.
The hydro lipids contained in egg whites lift and tighten loose skin. The riboflavin removes toxins and free radicals that cause fine lines and damage to the skin.
Just Egg Whites
Start with two eggs and separate the whites. Whisk the whites until the texture is foamy and use a cotton ball to apply to your troubling skin areas. Leave the mixture on the skin for twenty minutes before washing it away with cool water. Repeat this procedure twice weekly for a radiant and firm skin.
Every second application, add a tablespoon of plain yogurt to the eggs white before whisking. Apply to the skin in the same way, but this time, leave the mixture on for thirty minutes. Thoroughly rinse off the mixture with cool water, then dry the skin. This will provide more nutrients to tighten your skin.
Egg White and Honey
You can also make an effective face mask by mixing one egg white and two tablespoons of honey. Honey naturally rejuvenates and moistens skin cells. Apply the mask to the face and leave it on for twenty minutes before rinsing it off with cool water. You can repeat this a few times a month, or as needed.
Egg Whites, Yogurt, and Sugar
When you start using this mask, you will notice that the egg whites tighten your pores, the yogurt provides moisture and sugar exfoliates. This makes this a sensational method of tightening the skin, cleansing, moisturizing, and reducing the signs of aging.

This can be done more than once a day, just remember to moisturize afterward to replenish the hydration in your skin. If the skin is sensitive or dry, use a cup of cold water to dilute a half-cup of lemon juice.
