I’m a big fan of testing out natural skin care remedies and as it turns out, there’s a lot you can make with simple ingredients that you probably already have at home. When it comes to the sensitive eye area, there are three ingredients in particular that are proven to de-puff and reduce fine lines: cucumbers, egg whites and chamomile tea. Here’s how to turn those three simple ingredients into your go-to DIY eye masks:
1. CUCUMBER: Rough chop 1/2 cucumber, blend with 1/2 cup of water and add to a bowl. Completely saturate 6 cotton rounds, then squeeze out liquid entirely before placing flat into plastic bag. Freeze. Before using, thaw for 10 minutes. Moisturizes and de-puffs!
2. EGG WHITES: Crack two egg whites into a bowl, whip until firm. Gently brush underneath your eyes and let sit for 10 minutes. Reduces fine lines!
3. CHAMOMILE TEA: Soak 2 tea bags in warm water for 2 minutes. Squeeze excess liquid one by one, lay flat into a plastic bag and freeze. Thaw for 2 minutes before using. Calms and reduces dark circles.
