Eggs are often used in cooking and baking, but can also be applied on the face to help ward off wrinkles and to potentially tighten sagging skin. By applying egg whites directly onto your skin, you can give yourself an effective facial without spending a lot of money. Egg whites can be used as a mask to make the skin tighter and firmer.

  • To make your own firming mask, separate two eggs into egg whites and yolk.
  • Whip the egg whites with a fork for 10 seconds, and then spread the egg whites over your skin with your fingers.
  • Leave the egg whites on your skin for 30 minutes, or until they dry completely.
  • Wash the dried egg whites off your skin using warm water.

Depending on your skin type here is one mask that with slight variations can be used by everyone!

There is a particular compound in potatoes that helps to reduce swelling and puffiness. Using a vegetable peeler, shred a small amount of potato, let it chill in the fridge for a while, and then place the chilled potato under your eyes for 15 minutes. When you remove them, you will find less puffiness under those eyes and it also helps in reducing dark circles if used regularly. You can also use a potato slice instead of shredding them but shredded potato is definitely more effective.

Here are a few more ways you can use this miracle worker
