A homemade face mask won't get rid of your wrinkles, but some masks can temporarily tighten and plump the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Mix up one of these homemade anti-wrinkle masks to help you look your best before a job interview or a big date, or whenever you need a lift. Test the mask before your special day, to make sure you don't have an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients.

Step 1

Shred or mash one of the following into a small bowl: carrot, banana or apple. Wash and remove the peel first. According to "Modern Esthetics: A Scientific Source for Estheticians," these ingredients all have moisturizing properties. Adding moisture to the skin plumps it up and helps fill in fine lines.

Add one beaten egg white or 2 teaspoons of honey to the bowl. Stir to mix well. Both these ingredients will temporarily tighten and firm the skin. Tighter skin appears to have less wrinkles. If the mixture appears too thick to spread, add a little water to thin it out.
