Thin cucumber slices used as compresses over closed eyes will relieve sore, puffy eyes.
Raw potato slices contain potassium to take away dark circles under the eye.
Inexpensive tea bags (make sure that they’re cool to the touch) on the eyes make good eye refreshers because of the tannic acid. Don’t use herbal tea bags, because most don’t contain tannic acid. Try such brands as Red Rose and Lipton, or even better, generic brands.
If you are heading out to a special event and want to tighten your face a bit, use this quick fix:
Beat 1 egg white to a froth.
Apply all over face, paying special attention to the eye area, chin, and jaw.
Allow it to dry (it should take no longer than ten minutes) and ever so lightly rinse it off.
Don’t waste your money on temporary lifting creams.
The egg white lift is just as effective as any “face-lift in a bottle” I have ever tried.
The neck is often one of the most neglected areas, yet it’s the first place where the signs of aging appear.
A certain amount of wrinkling and sagging is inevitable, but there is a lot you can do to not only improve the appearance of your neck now, but minimize future problems.
Always take your cleanser and creams over the entire throat area, rinsing thoroughly. Make certain to apply all creams with firm upward strokes.
Knees and Elbows
The skin on knees, elbows, and heels can easily look discolored and dead. Here’s a bleaching mask that really works wonders.
Don’t you even think of wearing a short skirt without first applying this mixture:
Add the juice of 3 lemons to 1 cup of powdered milk.
Use just enough water to make a thick paste.
Leave the mixture on for 20 minutes.
Scrub off briskly with a loofah or sponge.
