These brilliant kitchen cures soothe and smooth the most common telltale signs of age. The best part? This cost-effective DIY tricks are super easy to do.
Crow’s-feet? Try an egg-white sweep.
Saturate a cotton ball with the whites from one egg and sweep onto skin around the eyes. Let sit for 15 minutes; rinse. Egg white’s protein, albumin, has an instant tightening effect that “irons out” the smaller creases without irritating the area’s delicate skin.
Forehead furrows? Try a yogurt mask.
Mix 1 tsp. of honey with 1 tsp. of full-fat yogurt. Apply to skin and let sit 15 minutes; rinse. Humectant honey draws moisture in from the air to plump and “fill in” the thicker-skinned lines while yogurt’s lactic acid speeds skin-smoothing collagen production.
Laugh lines? Try a strawberry mash.
Mash 1/2 cup of strawberries and rub a dime-size amount onto skin; rinse. Strawberry’s seeds gently dissolve dead skin cells, its ellagic acid stops collagen breakdown and its vitamin C brightens — together, making the fine lines around the mouth less obvious.
