Put these pieces in a blender and mix for 2 minutes on medium speed. The mix should become a puree. Next step, put a strainer over a bowl and use the pulp onto the strainer. Let the juice drain into the bowl and smash it by using a spoon to extract the rest of the juice. After that, add 1 egg white and mix together. At the end, apply the resulted mixture to the body part that needs tightening. Leave it for 15 minutes then clean off the area with cool water. Use the mask once or twice weekly for optimal results.
