Quick Fix It #3: Loss of Firmness and Elasticity

Quick Fix It #3: Loss of Firmness and Elasticity; To achieve firm skin, Egg whites are the cheapest way to get great temporary results. Not only will egg whites tighten the skin, but they can naturally draw out excess oil, shrink visible pores, infuse the surface of the skin with naturally-occurring vitamins such as Vitamin A,  destroy acne-causing bacteria, and help slough off dead surface skin cells (thanks to the lysozymes which occur naturally in egg whites). 
Directions: Beat 1-2 egg whites until the mix is nice and foamy then use a mask brush or finger tips  and apply in thin layers. You will immediately feel your skin tighten. Leave on as long as possible (15 min or up to an hour if you have the time). Wash off and enjoy firm skin for the day.

If money is not a concern, there are a lot of products that will temporarily tighten your skin as well. Try Mario Badescu's  Temp Lifting Mask, Peter Thomas Roth's Firm X, Lise Watier's Instant Lifting Serum...They will all get the job done.
