The Best Way to Get Rid of Sagging Eyelids & Frown Lines Between Eyes

Sagging eyelids and frown lines between the eyes are commonly associated with repeated movements that simply add up to wrinkles as you age. Luckily, there are some natural treatments that can help to get rid of sagging eyelids and frown lines without the use of tissue fillers or medical intervention, according to Julia Lawless, author of "The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils: The Complete Guide to the Use of Aromatic Oils in Aromatherapy, Herbalism, Health and Well-Being,” and Susan Worwood, author of "Essential Aromatherapy: A Pocket Guide to Essential Oils and Aromatherapy.”

Step 1

Combine ½ tsp. sweet marjoram essential oil, ½ tsp. geranium essential oil, ½ tsp. grapefruit essential oil, ½ tsp. lemon essential oil, ½ tsp. petit grain essential oil, ½ tsp. rosemary essential oil, ¼ tsp. yarrow essential oil, ¼ tsp. mandarin essential oil and 1 cup jojoba oil.

Step 2

Pour a small amount of the essential oil mixture onto a clean cotton pad. Allow the oil to soak into the cotton for one minute.

Step 3

Dab the soaked cotton pad around the eyelids and frown lines between the eyes. Gently massage the skin with clean fingertips in an outward motion toward your ears for two to three minutes.

Step 4

Rinse your skin with cool, clean water. Wash with a gentle facial cleanser and pat dry with a clean towel. Apply a light, oil-free moisturizer to your skin.

Step 5

Use this treatment two times per day. Stop using the essential oil mixture if it causes irritation including prolonged redness, swelling, itching or burning.

Step 6

Store unused portions of the essential oil mixture in the refrigerator for 90 days, then toss.
