Homemade Peel-Off Masks

1. Egg White and Lemon Juice Peel-Off Mask


  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice


Beat the egg and keep the white portion in a small bowl by separating it from the yolk. Add the lemon juice to it and blend well to prepare a thin mixture. Now, cleanse your face properly so that the mask sticks to your skin better. Apply it all over your face skipping the eye areas. Leave for 25 to 30 minutes. As soon as it gets dry and stiff, peel it away slowly starting from the forehead. Finally, rinse off the residue with a mild facial Cleanser. Being rich in alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), lemon juice can keep our skin clean by eliminating blackheads as well as other impurities, while egg white speed up the process by tightening the skin pores.

2. Orange Peel Powder and Milk Peel-Off Mask


  • 1 Tablespoon orange peel powder
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh raw milk


You can either purchase a pack of orange peel powder or prepare it at your home. Just sun-dry some orange peels for a couple of days and grind them into smooth, fine powder. Now, pour the milk into it and combine nicely to come up with a paste of medium consistency. Apply it evenly onto your facial skin and wait for half an hour. Once it gets dry enough, peel off slowly and wash off with lukewarm water. This mask is extremely effective in unclogging skin pores, removing blackheads and eliminating dead cells.
