The skin around the eyes is very sensitive and predisposed to wrinkles. It needs special care and in order to prevent wrinkles in this area it is recommended to use moisturizers as natural as possible which can help with the regeneration of collagen fibers and elastin.
Here are 5 natural masks which help with wrinkles around the eyes:
- Yogurt, strawberries and olive oil
Use a blender. Mix a teaspoon of yogurt with 3 strawberries and a few drops of olive oil. The yogurt will help with eliminating the dead skin cells, while the strawberries and olive oil will nurture and moisturize the skin. Apply the mask on the skin around the eyes (don’t get it in the eyes, though), and leave to act for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well.
- Cucumber, yogurt and honey
For this mask you will need one cucumber, a tablespoon of yogurt, a teaspoon of honey and a few drops of olive oil. Peel and grate the cucumber, and then add everything else. The acting time for this mask is 15 minutes.
- Avocado and argan oil
Mix the pulp from half of an avocado with a tablespoon of extravirgin argan oil. Leave the mask to act for 20 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
- Egg white, honey and argan oil
For this mask you need 1 egg white, a teaspoon of honey and a tablespoon of argan oil. Mix everything together, apply and leave to act for 20 minutes.
- Banana, egg white and honey
In a bowl, puree one banana, and add 1 egg white and 2 teaspoons of honey. To make it smell good, add a few drops of lavender oil. Apply the mask and leave on until it dries.
You can also use a grated carrot instead of the banana.
