Tightening and Brightening Coffee Eye Mask

Long days and nights mean inevitable pesky under-eye circles. If you have time in between prepping breakfast and getting the kids dressed for school, put some of your leftover coffee grounds to good use. This coffee eye mask uses caffeine to activate the skin under your eyes and to reduce puffiness, and protein from eggs to tighten. 10  minutes is all it takes to leave you looking fresh and awake!

  4. Gently remove mask with a warm, damp paper towel. Let the day begin!
