Here are the six best home treatment options to help you get rid of under eye wrinkles and restore your skin’s youthful tone and glow.
Egg White Mask
Egg whites contain collagen and protein. The collagen helps fill in under-eye wrinkles, while the protein improves the elasticity of your skin. Egg whites helps to tighten skin and shrink pores, giving your skin a youthful glow. Follow this simple recipe. During this treatment, the skin under your eyes will feel tighter and more toned, thus decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Get two eggs and separate the whites from the yolk.
- Whisk the egg whites together until it becomes frothy.
- Rub all of the egg white into the skin under your eyes using an upward motion.
- Allow the egg white to dry for 15 minutes.
- Remove egg white by rinsing with lukewarm water.
- Pat skin dry with a soft towel.
Massage with Rosemary oil
Massaging wrinkled skin can help stimulate blood flow. This increased blood flow helps in removing dirt and free radicals from the skin which are a main cause of elastin and collagen breakdown.

Avoid massaging skin without some type of lubricant. An excellent choice for a quick under-eye massage is rosemary oil. Rosemary oil helps tone skin and remove dryness.
To use rosemary oil, dip your pointer and middle finger in a bowl of rosemary oil and gently rub the oil from the inside corner of your eye near your nose to the outside of your eye near your temple. Then, rub back toward your nose. Now rub the skin of that same eye in an upward motion from near your nose to your temple and back again.
Dip your fingers in the oil again and repeat four more times. Then switch sides and massage the other eye in the same manner.
Use cucumber puree
Cucumber can serve as an excellent way to put lots of moisture back into your skin when applied topically. The moisture in cucumber helps treat old wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming. Cucumber slices are mostly used in spa to treat eye puffiness.
However, you can get the same healing at home without having to pay for expensive facials. Plus, the treatment method we describe below gets more of the healing cucumber in contact with your skin than just placing a slice over your eye.

Cucumber can be used by cutting off ¼ and placing it in a blender. Blend the cucumber until it’s slightly chunky. Apply the mash directly to the skin under your eyes and allow it sit for 15 minutes. Remove the cucumber puree with lukewarm water and pat yourself dry with a soft towel. Alternatively, you can cool the cucumber in the refrigerator first to tighten the skin and shrink pores.
Avocados are rich in wrinkle-fighting ingredients that can help you eliminate stubborn lines under your eyes. Avocado contains carotenoids which act as an antioxidant to get rid of damaging free radicals. Avocado also contains monounsaturated fatty acids that softens, moisturizes, and hydrate damaged skin.
To harness the healing power of avocado, cut two small slices of avocado and press gently into the skin under your eyes for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, dispose of the slices and rinse the residue from under your eyes with lukewarm water.

Use Ginger and Honey
Honey is a natural moisturizer and humectant that makes it a powerful wrinkle fighter. Ginger contains properties that increases blood flow. When applied directly to the skin, it brings cleansing blood directly to the area when it can do the most good.
To use ginger and honey, mix 1 teaspoon of ginger extract and 1 teaspoon of honey in a small bowl. Then, gently massage this mixture into the skin under your eyes and let it sit for one hour. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Use Castor oil
Castor oil is a rich moisturizer that when used regularly can eliminate wrinkles under your eyes while keeping the skin soft and supple. To reap the benefits of castor oil, dip your pointer finger in a dish of castor oil and apply one swipe of the oil under your eye from your nose to your temple before bedtime.
While you sleep, the castor oil puts moisture into your skin while at the same time forming a protective barrier that keeps that moisture from evaporating.
