You will mix the ingredients thoroughly. Once mixed, apply the formula to your face using a brush. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing it off.
3. Egg and Lemon Pore Reduction
While there is no way to close your pores, lemon and egg have astringent properties, which can tighten the skin, making pores less noticeable. This particular face mask recipe also calls for honey to moisturize the face, allowing for supple feeling skin. For this mask, you will need:
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg white
- Lemon juice
As usual, you will need to mix all ingredients before applying them to the face. After mixing the recipe, apply it to the face, avoiding the eyes.

- Half an avocado
Combine the ingredients into a paste. Apply to the skin, let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse.
