While staying home and practicing social distancing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, chances are you’re not wearing makeup every day. As for us, we’re totally taking advantage of the opportunity to let our skin breathe for the time being. With that, we’re also looking to amp up our skincare routine—but, if you’re like us, you’re running out of store-bought face masks quickly. Luckily, trusted celebrity facialist Olga Lorencin just shared her go-to at-home face mask recipes for dry skin and oily skin.

Don’t worry: You probably stocked up on the ingredients in preparation for social distancing, so you have the fixings for a facialist-approved face mask right in your own pantry.

Olga Lorencin works with celebrities like Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Eva Mendes, Jessica Biel, and Amy Adams, to name a few—aka celebs known for glowing skin, on and off the red carpet. Lorencin shared some beauty tips with E! News, including two super quick and easy face masks made of just two or three ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now.

At-home face mask recipe for dry skin:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • a little bit of honey

Mixing these three ingredients together “makes a fabulously rich and nourishing mask,” Lorencin told E! News. She added that the honey provides hydrating properties while the other two ingredients offer your skin biotin and essential fatty acids.

At-home face mask recipe for oily or acne-prone skin:

  • 1 egg white
  • 2-3 drops of lemon juice

Beat an egg white with a fork and add a few drops of lemon juice for a face mask that will soothe oily or acne-prone skin (which might be acting up due to stress surrounding the coronavirus pandemic). Lorencin told E! News that this face mask is good for “pore-tightening, brightening, and congestion-relieving.”

We fully plan on taking advantage of time at home during the coronavirus pandemic by implementing more face masks into our skin care routine. And the best part is that we already have the ingredients for these recipes, so the lift is super light. Catch us working from home with our faces lathered in these face masks until further notice.
