When we think of bananas, we don’t generally think of its benefits to the wrinkles beneath our eyes. But surprisingly, it has proven to be effective on under eye wrinkles. All you have to do is take 1/4 of a banana then mash it into a paste. Afterwards, you can apply the paste on the affected area in thin layers. Leave for 15-20 minutes and rinse with warm water.
Although it is not generally known, pineapple is an effective ingredient to prevent and fight eye wrinkles. This is because pineapple contains an active enzyme bromelain, which is an anti-inflammatory agent. That is not all, for pineapple helps remove dead skin cells, treat wrinkles and prevent wrinkles. Pineapple juice also helps exfoliate the skin as it has astringent properties. All you have to do is prepare some pineapple juice, then massage it under the eyes. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes then rinse with water. Repeat for several days in a row.
Apples are known to keep you healthy, just as the saying goes, “an apple a day keeps the doctors away”. However, the benefits are not only limited to our overall health, but also to the skin. Apple masks can be used to lighten dark spots, speed cell turnover, brighten dull skin, decrease wrinkles and improve overall skin texture and tone. Moreover, the Granny Smith and Red Delicious variety contains high levels of collagen and elastin — the protein that gives your skin firmness and prevents wrinkles from forming. You can get all of these benefits by eating one apple a day or apply apple mixed with 1 tablespoon of honey on your under-eyes once a week. Let the mask dry for 10 minutes. Remove the mask by first by splashing in warm water, then cold water.
Alternatively, you can take the cabbage in your fridge and make it a home remedy for under eye wrinkles. The cabbage in your fridge has a lot of antioxidants and phytochemicals which are effective on free radicals, one of the primary causes of wrinkles. Vitamin C contained in cabbage juice is also an important component in the production of collagen.
Make your cabbage juice by cutting off ¼ of a head of cabbage into small pieces. Place the cabbage in a blender and puree until it turns into the consistency of water. Pour the cabbage juice into a bowl or large cup. In a separate bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 tablespoons of cabbage juice. Mix everything evenly. The next thing to do is apply the mixture under your eyes and let it dry for 10 minutes. Wash with cold water then warm water to close pores and tighten skin.
Other than the ingredients above, egg white mask is also an effective kitchen ingredient to reduce under eye wrinkles. Egg whites are effective to increase the production of collagen that is useful for bouncy skin. The process of making the mask is also very easy. Mix one egg white with 1 tsp lemon water and 5 tsp honey. Slather it on the face and leave it for 15 minutes. Finally, wash everything off with warm water.
Watermelon is most known for being a tasty summer treat, however it is also effective on treating under eye wrinkles. This is due to the 93% of water content, making it a great natural moisturizer. Vitamins present in it like A, B6, and C are effective to repair and protect wrinkled skin. You can reap all the benefits by creating a watermelon mask for your under-eye wrinkles.
