Wrinkles dragging down your smile? Erase fine lines with an age-defying anti-wrinkle eye mask.

Classic Cuke Skin Saver
Frustrated by sagging skin and droopy 'lids? Try a classically cool cucumber eye mask. Mix 2 tsp. chopped and peeled fresh cucumber with 1tsp. powdered milk.

Allow 10 minutes for your mask to work its magic, then rinse with tepid water. Apply nightly after moisturizing for 'lids that defy gravity!
Come Hither Eye Mask
For smoldering eyes that define smokin' hot, microwave 1/2 cup mineral oil and 2 tbsp. beeswax for one minute. In a separate bowl, dissolve 1/8 tsp. borax powder in 1/4 cup distilled water.
