Erase late nights and tired eyes by adding a dose of coffee to your morning skincare routine. While you’re sipping away on a cup of Joe you can also use coffee to attack dark circles and fine lines with this homemade mask for puffy eyes.
Coffee is excellent for perking up skin. The caffeine acts as a diuretic to reduce swelling and puffiness while coffee’s antioxidants fight the free radicals that age skin.
Combine coffee with the vitamins and proteins in egg whites that tighten and firm skin, and you have a mask that’s especially effective on pesky crow’s feet around the eyes.
- 1 egg white
- 2 teaspoons coffee grounds
Combine the egg white and coffee in a small bowl. Beat mixture together with a fork until frothy, about 1 minute. With clean hands or a brush, apply the mask around and under the eyes.
Let the mask dry for 10 minutes. You will definitely feel the mask tightening your skin! If it gets uncomfortable, go ahead and remove it before the 10 minutes are up. Use a soft, wet towel to gently clean off the mask. Finish with moisturizer. Discard any unused mask.
Top it up with the silky Eye Treatment Gel and you are ready to rock your day!
