DIY under-eye mask 1 - Egg whites and Vitamin E

How to make an egg eye mask

Step 1 - Mix

Take an egg and separate the whites from the yoke; we just want to use the whites here. Then, mix it with some vitamin E oil and whisk the two together.

Step 2 - Apply

Apply this directly to your under-eyes using a makeup brush and just let it sit for about 5 minutes. 

Benefits of an egg eye mask

Egg whites are known to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and the antioxidants in vitamin E fight free radicals. 

DIY under-eye mask 2 - Coffee grounds

Step 1 - Mix

Take some coffee grounds. Make sure they are no longer hot; they should be at room temperature. Then add some vitamin E oil.

The nice thing about all of these eye masks is that you don’t have to measure anything really; just create a little bit of a paste. Mix it all together.

Step 2 - Apply

Put the mixture on under your eyes and leave it on for 10 minutes, so you look really well-rested. 

Every morning when you make your coffee, you can grab the grounds while it cools off, put it on your eyes, and then while you’re drinking your coffee, you’ve got your little eye mask going on!

Then, just shower up, and you’re ready to go to work!

Benefits of a coffee eye mask

Coffee is good for your skin because it contains caffeine, which helps protect cells against UV radiation and slows down the photoaging of skin that leads to early wrinkles.

Coffee can tighten your skin, so could actually put this DIY coffee eye mask all over your face. It also helps with cellulite and helps to reduce dark under-eye circles.

DIY under-eye mask 4 - Chamomile tea

Step 1 - Apply

This next one is super easy as it only has one ingredient - a chamomile tea bag. Soak two tea bags, one for each eye, in hot water and then wait for them to get cold.

Drain them a little bit but not too much, and then hold them underneath your eyes. It might be helpful to do this while lying on the couch.

Benefits of chamomile for eyes

If you get an eye infection or pink eye and you apply tea bags on your eyes, it goes away. You can also apply the tea bag to the rest of your face. This will help with any redness or irritation that you have.

DIY under-eye mask 5 - Lemon, egg whites, and coconut oil

Benefits of egg whites and coconut oil

Egg whites, as we said, reduce the appearance of fine lines. Coconut oil is an effective method for lightening dark under-eye circles.

Coconut oil can clog pores on your face, but as you’re applying this under your eyes, that won’t be a problem.
