Mask of egg white
Mix egg whites from an egg with a tablespoon of thyme oil and use it as a mask for your face. This is one of the most effective solutions for lifting sagging skin and reducing wrinkles.

Mask of banana
A mask made from mashed, ripe bananas, a tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon of olive oil help to tighten the skin and give it instant shine. It also helps keep out external moisture which in turn helps to lift sagging skin and regulate the production of sebum (a naturally oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands to lubricate and make the skin waterproof).
Pasta of turmeric and water
Make a paste of turmeric and water and apply it evenly over the face. Let it dry for 15 minutes and then wash off with cold water. This remedy is most effective when repeated several times a week, to ensure that the skin regains its elasticity.
Mask of strawberries and yogurt
