People who tried using egg white blackhead peel off mask attest to its incredible skin benefits. It tightens the skin, removes excess oil, and helps shrink large pores. If you’re prone to acne, egg white masks are perfect for you because eggs have lysozyme. As a potent antibacterial enzyme, lysozyme shows great promise in controlling acne vulgaris. Here’s a simple egg white blackhead peel off mask that you can easily do at home with elementary tools and ingredients.


For the DIY peel of mask, you will need:

  • 2 egg whites
  • Thin tissue paper cut in small pieces (approximately 3-4 inches in size)
  • Lemon (optional)

To prep the skin:

To get the egg whites, crack the eggs one at a time. Use your hands to separate the yolk from the white. Alternatively, you can break the eggs in a bowl and use an empty water bottle or slotted spoon to get the yolk out.

Prepping before peeling

Before using the peel off mask, you should prep your skin to remove dirt and open your pores.

  1. Cleanse your face thoroughly with Actinera® Bamboo Charcoal Face Wash and rinse with lukewarm water. Carefully pat dry.
  2. Soak a clean face towel with warm water. Squeeze out excess water and place it on your face for 15 minutes
  3. Keep the towel warm by repeatedly soaking it in warm water.

Now that your skin is clean and your pores are open, it’s time to get those blackheads out.

  1. Whisk the egg whites until you get a uniform, slightly stiff consistency.
  2. Add a drop or two of lemon juice to help tighten your pores and make the mixture smell pleasant. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Using a broad cosmetic brush, apply a layer of your egg white on your skin, avoiding your eye and mouth area.
  4. Let the egg whites stick to your skin for several seconds.
  5. Press the tissue paper on your face one piece at a time. Make sure that you cover every inch of skin that’s been coated with egg whites.
  6. Apply another layer of egg whites on the tissue papers to make them stick to your skin.
  7. Wait for 20-30 seconds before applying another layer of tissue paper.
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 until you have about 3-5 layers of tissue paper and egg whites.
  9. Wait for the mask to dry. It usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on how much egg whites you used on your face. You’ll know it’s ready to peel off when it has this paper mache consistency. It’s okay that some areas are moist as long as those places got some substance to them.
  10. Gently peel off the mask starting from the jawline. Remove the mask in an upward pulling motion. It may cause some pain or discomfort, so take your time and remove the mask carefully.
  11. Wash off any remaining tissue and egg with cold water to seal your pores.

Things to consider

Use hypoallergenic tissue paper to lessen the irritation. Don’t use wipes since they contain alcohol and preservatives that will irritate your skin.

Do NOT do this DIY mask if you’re allergic to eggs and dairy. If you’re not sure, we highly advise that you test the mask on a patch of skin on the back of your hand. Even if you do not have egg allergies, testing is still recommended to rule out reactions and irritation.

You can increase the effects of the egg white blackhead peel off mask by adding activated charcoal to the mix. Or better yet, use Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask that has hyaluronic acid and Vitamine E for smooth, moisturized skin. It’s also perfect for those who are too busy to do DIY and wait for the mask to dry.
