For the first time in my life, I’ve been sleeping really well—like 8 hours of uninterrupted zzzs on a bad night sort of sleep. But you wouldn’t know it by looking at my eyes. When I stumble to the bathroom every morning and take a look in the mirror, I’m greeted by some seriously puffy, tired-looking eyes. The skin in the eye area is thinner than most of the skin on the rest of your body, so it’s especially sensitive to things like stress, illness, or changes in your diet. Luckily, natural remedies are super effective at shrinking bags and lessening redness. And my favorite natural eye treatment these days is eggs.
Eggs contain collagen, protein, and a bunch of vitamins and minerals that nourish the eye area. When combined with other ingredients specifically targeted for things like circles, bags, and wrinkles, eggs make the perfect eye treatment for almost any ailment. The collagen helps fill in under-eye wrinkles, while the protein improves your skin’s elasticity. Egg yolks are chock-full of essential fatty acids, the building blocks of healthy cell membranes, and are said to improve skin moisture. And egg whites tighten skin and shrink wrinkles, leaving your skin smoother than ever.
To get the most beauty benefits from your eggs, it’s important to choose organic eggs, which comes from hens that never consume harmful pesticides or GMO-ridden food. So you can rest easy knowing that you’re using the highest-quality eggs possible and getting the most beauty benefits for your buck.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend at high speed until completely pureed. Using a cotton ball, dab the mixture on under eye skin and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat dry. Store remaining mixture in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Use a fork to whisk together until milk powder is dissolved and the mixture is slightly frothy. Using a cotton ball, dab the mixture on under eye skin and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat dry. Store remaining mixture in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. Note: If your under-eye skin is on the dry side, adding a little egg yolk to your eye treatment reaps the moisturizing benefits of essential fatty acids.
Combine ingredients in a bowl. Using a cotton swab, apply a small amount of the mixture to the crease of the eyelid. Sit with eyes closed and let the egg white mixture dry. Rinse and reapply as necessary.

How often should we do these masks?

Great question Esperanza! We think once a day is a great starting point, but it will differ for everyone. You can always do some experimentation to find what works best for you!
