 All You Need Is An Egg For This All Natural Remedy For Drooping Eyelids

natural remedy for drooping eyelids

Check out my before and after picture from using this all natural organic remedy for drooping eyelids and hooded eyes!

Do you have drooping eyelids, sagging eyelids, or hooded eyes?

Want to improve it with a natural remedy?

I sound like a commercial! I’m just so excited and surprised that my experiment worked!

You won’t believe how easy it is! And I can’t believe there is no information on this online! And all you need is an Egg!

My mom has been mentioning recently that she wanted to do something about her drooping eyelids. So, over the past few days I started researching natural remedies for drooping eyelids and surprising I couldn’t find anything! Then I started thinking about what could possibly help. Using an egg white for drooping eyelids was my first thought. I usually do an egg white facial once a week and I know how it tightens your skin and removes the appearance of wrinkles. Surprisingly, there was no information on using an egg white for drooping eyelids, so I had to experiment with it myself.

Improving Drooping Eyelids, Sagging Eyelids, or Hooded Eyes

Many want to improve the appearance of drooping eyelids. Drooping eyelids are associated with appearing tired and older. Some feel that improving their drooping eyelids will improve their self-confidence, physical appearance, and make them feel more attractive.

The weight from a drooping eyelid may also tire the muscles of the eye and cause fatigue.

When you have drooping eyelids or hooded eyes you may also have more difficulty applying makeup. Since having drooping eyelids or hooded eyes may make the eyelid itself not visible under the excess skin, eyeliner or eye shadow applied may not be visible.

What’s the Difference Between Drooping Eyelids, Sagging Eyelids and Hooded Eyes?

This is something I was curious about when I first started reading up on remedies for drooping eyelids. Before I knew the difference, I thought my eyelids would be classified as drooping eyelids, but actually, I have hooded eyes.

Hooded Eyes is just a term used to refer to those who have the physical characteristic of the skin above the eye slightly protruding over the natural crease of the eyelid. When you have hooded eyes, generally the eyelids are partially covered by the skin when your eyes are open, slightly hiding the eyelid itself. Having hooded eyes is actually very common, a few public figures that I can think of are Blake Lively and Renee Zellweger. Not that hooded eyes is something that needs a remedy, hooded eyes are often viewed as alluring and beautiful.

Drooping Eyelids or Sagging Eyelids are not something you’re born with, instead it occurs over time and is most commonly associated with aging and the loss of skin elasticity. Drooping eyelids may stay constant or progressively worsen over time. Drooping eyelids is very common for both men and women.

What Causes it?

Most commonly, drooping eyelids is the result of aging causing a loss of skin elasticity around the eye. The tissue loses its firmness and the ability to hold back the increased weight of the eyelid skin tissue. Other possible causes have been said to be thyroid dysfunction, fatigue, smoking, and increased oxidative stress.

Other Treatments Used

There aren’t many great solutions or remedies for drooping eyelids. The primary options include upper eyelid cosmetic surgery (blepharoplasty), injections of chemical fillers, or thermage.


My Natural Remedy for Drooping Eyelids or Hooded Eyes

All you’re going to need is one egg white! Nice and simple right?

Egg whites tighten and firm your skin.

With using an egg white, you will see results in a few minutes and the results have lasted me almost two days from application. I was very surprised!


Steps For Egg White Remedy

1. Make sure your eyelid doesn’t have any makeup and is dry.

2. Crack open an egg and remove the yolk, all you’re going to need is the egg white.

3. Hold your eyelid closed and dip a cotton swab into the egg white.

4. Rub the cotton swab across the crease of your eyelid (it should not drip at all, you don’t need much).

apply qtip drooping eyelid

5. Keep holding your eyelid closed and wait for the egg white to dry or you could sit in front of a fan to speed up the time.

That’s it! You may have to reapply it a little higher or a little lower if you didn’t get the result on the first try. For both me and my  mom, we had to put it on 2 or 3 times, but once we figured out where to put it, it came out great!

      You can use it as often as you like, if you put in on in the morning it should last all day. When I put it on, it even lasts through the next day! It is amazing!! My mom uses it every day now, and she looks 10 years younger!

      • allison says

        Amazing. This just did wonders for my self esteem! I don’t know how you thought of this, but thank you so much for sharing!

          • Anonymous says

            So you leave it on all day with your make up? And it only world while it’s on or improves skin elasticity over time?

            • Lori Klein says

              Yes, I leave it on under my makeup. It does work all day and sometimes lasts a few days if I don’t rub it off with water.

                    Hi, you won’t go red or dry your skin out at all. I’ve been doing this for over a year since reading this article and I love it especially for a big night out or photo opportunities. I tried the Instantly Ageless eye creams and it honestly didn’t work as well as the egg white. I found it worked better after I whisked the egg white first with a fork just for a few seconds. So cheap and so brilliant. l

                    • Hannah says

                      Im soooo thankful for this remedy.. I would like to ask if we apply this daily… will the fixed eyelid turn permanent?

          • Nesha says

            Thank you Lori for sharing this information. I thought of this same thing myself awhile back but didnt know if i was the only one. I tried it a few times before, but didnt do it often enough to know if it worked or not. I’ll try it again because like you said, maybe i wasn’t putting it in the right place. I guess i just needed a second opinion. I noticed that if u put a little of the skin from the inside of the egg shell, dippef in the egg white, will also help with. crows feet and wrinkles under the eyes. Just apply it at night before bed, and wash it off in the morning
            with soap and water.

              • Lu says

                I suffer of the same thing (over 50 and thinking surgery) but I love to try this, so I have a question since I am in the eyecare business.
                Is there any risk of salmonella?
                and because I use makeup everyday at work, could I risk to contaminate the makeup?
                Thank you! So glad to hear people are seeing amazing results! :)

                  • Anonymous says

                    I’d think that the possibility of getting salmonella is outside of the eggshell and if is already contaminated, in this case washing the egg with soap before cracking it, would be enough. Off course bacteria can reproduce after that, depending on the environment, but the amount is so little that this shouldn’t be a problem…

              • Anonymous says

                Could you use the egg white on your whole and leave it all day. Could you use make up over your face with the egg white?

                • Lori says

                  I think some do that to minimize wrinkles, but I haven’t tried it myself yet. I usually just leave it on for 30minutes as a face mask.

              • Shannon k says

                Would doing this cause salmonella poisoning?i can’t see it being sanitary.wearing it so day and night and combining with makeup .wouldnt my brushes get salmonella on them?just curious because it is not cooked .sounds great just wanna make sure it’s safe from food poisoning before I try .thanks.

          • sarah says

            I have very heavy eye lids and honestly am shocked at how well it worked, how fast it worked and long it is lasting. Egg whites!! Who would have thought?…Thank you thank you!!!!

          • Anonymous says

            I used the egg whites and it only cracked and peeled off. Made my make up look crappy and it did nothing over time. It also felt like my my eyelid were so crusty.

        • Me says

          Can I just say… Hooded eyelids are extremely exotic and make such a dramatic statement. It makes eyes look super intense and dramatic. No one should ever feel insecure about hooded eyelids. I don’t have them but I am very attracted to people who do. Just saying… It’s beautiful.

      • Lorri says

        I cannot believe this works so well! Read all the comments and decided
        to try it immediately. The first attempt was not great, I used too much egg white, but tried it again using less-and it looks great. I can see my eyelids! I no longer have a roll of eyelid over my upper lashes! It’s amazing that something so cheap, simple and easy can be so effective. Thank you, thank you, thank you-shall recommend this tip and your website to everyone.

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          Hi Ana, I’m not sure what you mean? I usually apply it 3 or 4 times until it is in the perfect spot and gives me the best result.

              • Renee says

                I have not tried it yet but can’t wait to!!! Thanks for sharing this!

                Do you know if Egg Beaters would work as well? (Egg Beaters is that egg white product that comes in a small carton) Was thinking it would stay fresh longer in the fridge.

                • Lori, Health Extremist says

                  I haven’t ever used that, so I’m not sure if the consistency is the same. Let us know how it works if you give it a try.

                • Nikki says

                  My guess is the actual egg white will give you more bang for your buck. Eggbeaters have a fairly quick expiration date and cost way more.
                  To the author; thank you so much for this. I am all girl natural remedies and don’t subscribe to the pharma, overpriced, monopoly control hype. So, double whammy! I came out of a terribly abusive relationship 3 years ago. Every aspect of my life has improved since then. However, I neglected myself so much, it took a toll on me: I gained 40 pounds, have a horrible midsection (stretch marks, fat) and my eyelids have begun drooping, which has aged me. I’m a pretty girl, not willing to settle, and doing my best to avoid surgery to rectify it all. That said, aside from exercising, eating better and dieting, I am now super stoked about this egg white solution.
                  You may not realize this, but your little act of sharing will probably become a life altering improvement for me. Life altering. Increasing my self esteem and keeping me positively in the right track. I sound nuts, but don’t care. You need to know what a profound impact your little article can have.
                  Again, thank you. Karma will give back to you.
                  All the best.

                  • says

                    You are so cool Nikki!!! Don’t know you but like the way you think and say. You’re going to be just fine… worries. Every woman who’s been in an abusive relationship, weather physically or mentally should come out of it stronger!! You go girl!! When you end up looking your best it won’t matter one bit what you had to go through to get there. I’ll be praying for you.

              • Rosemary Jean says

                what part of the egg white do we use? There is a thicker part of the white and also a thin part. Just would like to know if it should be broken up and mixed. Thank you for this wonderful information. R~

      • mary says

        from Mary aged around 70 – thanks for all the tips – most interesting.
        tried the egg white – though I`m oldish I have just very fine wrinkles around
        eyes; when the egg white dried it tightened the skin around the eyes,
        and initially seemed to accentuate the wrinkles and droopy eyelids, but
        then I put some simple face cream over the (dried) egg white around the eyes
        and that was quite a good result; skin remained tightened but the cream
        relaxed the skin a little. Overall effect is less tired looking for sure

      • Anonymous says

        Will it help your eyelids over time? Like, will they get better after you apply the egg whites a few times to where you don’t have to use it anymore?

        • Lori Klein says

          For me, it only works while it is applied, but if it is used over time there may be a possibility of it ‘training’ the eyelid to fall a certain way.

      • Helen says

        Hi Lori, firstly I have to thank you for sharing this tip. I has given me so much confidence and I love wearing makeup now. Previously I used to hide behind a pair of specs because I was so conscious of my left droopy eye due to catarct surgery. However, I don’t know if it was ever related tor not, I was prone to conjuctivitus on the eye that I put the egg white. After having conjunctivitus 3 times, I started to wonder if the egg white could be contirbuting to it. I thought very hard and wanted an alternative to give the same results. I finally thought why not Aloe Vera Gel? It makes the skin a little tight so off I went to the chemist and bought a tube. I have since tried it and it takes a bit longer than egg white to dry and and so happy the results were the same. Psycologically, I am more at rest that I am putting this rather than protein on my eyelid. But the credit goes to you for putting the concept out there for all of us. I have modified it to suit myself and just wanted to share this with you too.

        • Lori Klein says

          Hi Helen, I’m so glad to hear it has helped! Thank you for sharing about the aloe vera! That’s another great alternative to help tighten the skin!

        • Anonymous says

          Just an update – aloe vera did not work that well so have stopped. Back to egg white but I suggest that it must be kept in the fridge at all times and replaced frequently to avoid spoilage. I take a little bit of the eggwhite when I use eggs for anything and put it in a very tiny container with lid in the fridge.

        • Lori Klein says

          I put it on booth of mine. It lifts the eyelid, so, whichever eyelid is the one that needs more lifting/tightening.

      • Anonymous says

        Do I only have to use it like once or twice or till it works, and then it stays like that, like forever or years or something like that, or is it a daily thing?

        • Lori Klein says

          It only lasts while it’s on. So, if you don’t wash it off, it may last a day or up to 3 days. Then you’ll need to reapply.

        • Lori Klein says

          Some use it on other facial areas to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. I apply it to my whole face as a natural facial mask. It leaves my skin glowing and it also shrinks my pores.

      • Gloria says

        Wow, I had the most amazing results instantly and its so simple to apply.

        I have horrible droopy eyelids. I have considered surgery but I just tried this and oh my goodness it does work. Thank you so much for sharing. Any suggestions on the rest of the saggy face? Lol

        • Lori Klein says

          Yay, so glad it worked for you! You can try the egg white on other areas as well. I just start using hempseed oil as a moisturizer and it seems to help minimize fine lines.

      • Donna says

        Hi Lori
        I too have hooded eyelids and tried the egg whites but it didn’t work for my eyelids as well as a different theory I came up with. Rather than putting it on my eyelids, I raised my eyebrows and put it on my forehead and let it dry and applied a second coat. That kept my forehead tight and was enough to lift my eyebrows and keep my hooded lids up enough to make a difference!

        Thanks for the egg white idea Lori!

        I’m Asian and I have hooded eyelids would this help give me eyelids? Cause from the picture you show you have hooded eyelids and then bigger eyelids please explain c:

        • Lori Klein says

          You can read the comments above to see how it’s working for everyone. Yes, I naturally have hooded eyelids. Applying it makes my eyes look bigger and you can actually see my eyelids, which works out great when I apply makeup.

      • Rachel says

        Hi Lori I’ve been reading all the comment and I have just one question. I have a lazy eye would that help left my eyelid.

      • zina says

        Just tried, wow, no seriously, however, what do you do about the white crust that now is very visible on my upper and lower eyelids? ???

        • Lori says

          Did you try it a few times applying it on different areas (little higher/little lower)? It may take some experimenting to get it on in the right spot.

          • melissa says

            I found playing around with it helped…first few times I tried, it was white, dry and did not work…however by the third time I tried I figured out where exactly (for my eye) it worked (best for me) …people need to keep in mind, everyone has different skin, different eye shapes therefore you have to figure out what works best for YOU.

      • Denise says

        Hello, Lori. I tried the egg white recipe for my hooded eyelids, and I could not believe how this home remedy worked. I also used the egg white on my face too. Works wonders. Thank you.

        I’m so excited to try!! Just an idea going to try freezing a egg white into an ice cube and applying it that way each day. I don’t use eggs every day otherwise and they’re expensive where I live!! Looked through comments to see if anyone’s done that and I couldn’t find anything. Just thought I’d grow it out there! I’d imagine it’d make for light application and keep for a long time?

        I tried it and the results are amazing. But when i wear makeup should i se powder makeup? If u could let me know that would be great.
        Thanks so much for ur post

        • Lori says

          You can definitely wear powder makeup on top of it. I wouldn’t use liquid eye shadow on top of it because I don’t think the egg white would work as well if it became wet.

      • Lora says

        Dear Lori
        I wanted to ask you if there is a permanent change on your eyelid since you’re using egg to lift it for some years now, or does the change still show only for some hours or a day?
        Please tell me if you noticed a streamlining or a lift after doing this many times.

        Thank you

        • Lori says

          I haven’t been using it regularly enough to tell if there’s a permanent change. I usually only use it on the weekends.

        • Lori says

          It may; I haven’t used it every day consistently to know if it can “train” your eyelid to fall a certain way like tape can.

      • Abby says

        Hi Lori. Thank you for your wonderful tip. I want to know ,once I have cracked a egg and removed the yellow yoke how long can the egg white stay in the fridge for?

      • Sharon says

        This might sound silly but you didn’t mention if you have to rinse it off or leave it on? My assumption is you’re leaving the egg white on?

        • Lori says

          You have to leave it on for as long as you want it to work. When you wash it off, it will no longer have the effect.

      • says

        Hey Lori! This seems like a very great technique. Define toy gonna give it a try but I was just wondering, do u need to beat up the egg yoke like stir it until it get bubbly or do u just use it as is?

      • Alayna says

        Hello and thank you for the idea :) wondering the WHYs*.& HOWS* It is able to work.
        #1 Do you wash it Off?
        #2 is it the stickiness of the egg whites that are acting as A glue for the eyelid…
        #3 what nutrients is the egg white serving the skin to firm…

    This is awesome! Finally something to do with all those darn egg whites! Every time I make a smoothie with a yolk, I think, “Isn’t a shame I don’t have something to do with these egg whites?” as I watch them disappear down the drain….. Not only will the whites have a purpose now, but I’ll look better, too! Hot Damn!!

  2. Sarah says

    Do you have to use a fresh egg white each time or can you use the egg white for several days (if u don’t have to use much)

            Hi Nancy, thanks for letting us know you gave it a try! Definitely give it another try, getting it in the right place can be tricky and may take several tries Try placing it a little higher or lower or both. Holding my eyelid shut after putting it on and sitting in front of fan helped also.

                Hi there, I have some natural remedies in my post here–

                • Jeru says

                  Hi Lori,
                  For the past few days when I wake up, my right eye has a vertical wrinkle that runs from just outside the eye under the eyebrow down. Added to this, the same eye has been puffy as well. Sometimes the wrinkle is there, but not the puffiness but then later in the day, it gets puffy. Just the one eye. It also feels strange.
                  I’ve been feeling so down. I’m 60 years old but I just read of a 70 year old who said that the egg white helped.
                  Do you think the egg white would also reduce puffiness? If not, could you recommend something natural?
                  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing homemade remedies with all. God bless you, girl.

                  • Lori Klein says

                    Hi Jeru, I’ve read that some do use it to reduce puffiness and swelling, but haven’t tried it for that purpose myself. I’ve also read that applying cold tea bags to the eye area can help reduce puffiness.

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          No, I don’t whip it. I just separate the egg white from the yolk and dip the cotton swab in.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Lynne, you can leave it on all day or for however long you want the results to last. It is very gentle on the skin and I don’t even notice it’s on. I sometimes even leave it on over night and it will last through the second day.

      Egg white facials are great! Just put the egg white on your face and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes then wash off. I always feel like my skin is glowing after!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Lauren! I’ve heard of that too! I was considering ordering one, but then thought there has to be an all natural way :)

    • dsc60 says

      I bought a product that’s like the tape. It didn’t work for me. Apparently my eyelids are TOO hooded and my eyelid went right over the “tape” and looked very odd. I hope I have luck with the egg whites. I’m so excited to try this. I didn’t mind my hooded eyelids and I actually quite liked my eyes when I was younger, but as I age the saggier they are looking. If my eyelashes weren’t there to hold them up I can’t imagine how low they would sag. It’s no longer attractive and if I could afford the surgery, I’d get it in a heartbeat. Keeping fingers crossed that egg whites help.

    Wow, what a surprising natural remedy. I’ve never heard of using egg white for a facial and I’m a chicken farmer! Thanks for sharing your secret to beautiful eyes on Wildcrafting Wednesday this week. That’s just amazing.

  5. Mrhycannon says

    Here I go again.. I also use more egg yolks that whites and freeze the whites for later use mo.. This idea gets tried today.. What about moisturizer before the egg white.? I know it works well under makeup but does it allow the egg white to do i’ts thing.?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I’m not sure if it would work on top of moisturizer, but you could give it a try. Maybe if you applied the moisturizer, let it absorb on your skin for a few minutes, then wipe it off, and apply the egg white.

  6. says

    I love to read effective, all-natural beauty tips, and this one is so neat! I have days where I feel soooo tired and droopy-eyed, so I will have to give this a try! :)

  7. Anna says

    Do you think having an allergy to eggs, be detrimental to trying this? I don’t break out but get headaches from ingesting them! Would it be safe to put on my skin even?

    • Anonymous says

      Anna I wouldn’t! Who know what would happen if you’re allergic. Just like people who are allergic to bees shouldn’t eat honey i would stay away.

      • Anonymous says

        I’m allergic to bees and eat honey, it’s the venom from their stings that causes the allergy. Totally unrelated to egg white eye lifts but i noticed this comment when reading through and that I’d jump in with my experience :)

      • JT says

        I am a RN, I have worked in an Allergy Asthma Practice, and I am personally allergic to bees. Honey and bee stings are completely unrelated! I eat honey like it is going out of style, including the raw honey with is actually hard, not liquid. Bee venom and bee “spit” are not even remotely the same. BUT, eggs allergies and dermal applications of eggs are related! When you test for allergies, you do dermal testing, and intradermal testing is the 2nd step. What is placed ON your skin IS ABSORBED into your body. Most patients who are allergic to foods react just to placing it on and leaving it there for 10 minutes. I strongly, strongly advise against it if you have anaphalatic reactions to eggs!!! Never mess with true food allergies, unless you want to get very friendly with your epi-pen really quick! :-)

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      If you are allergic to eggs, you should ask your doctor or allergist first. Many have reactions on their skin just from rubbing foods on it, I have seen some allergists actually use this as a way as determining if someone is allergic to a food. Sometimes people can be allergic to just egg whites or to just the yolk.

      • stormyboyd1 says

        Yes ma’am, one of my daughters are allergic to egg whites abd my other daughter is allergic to the yolk!

    • Anonymous says

      I am not sure if you tried this or not, but since your egg allergy does not appear on your skin when you eat eggs,ie. hives. I think you might be ok, the skin on the inside of your wrist is most like facial skin, you might try a patch test there first. If you don’t react to it, if I were you,I would try it on my eyes. I have Rosacea and very sensitive skin and I always test new products on my wrist and have had very few times that the patch test has not been accurate.

    Love this remedy since there are products out there to solve this problem such as curve strips of tape to put on the crease. This home remedy and the one I mentioned should be able to train you eyelids and so you’ll find that you might not need it a longer and longer period of time. You do have have to go back to it occasionally to retrain

  9. Reena says

    If you leave the egg whites on your eye lids, do they feel sticky and smell? And if the weather is hot and humid, will it melt and get into your eyes?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      After you put it on your skin it drys in a minute or less, it doesn’t feel sticky at all, after it is dry I can’t even tell it is on! It’s great! There is no smell at all either. I haven’t tried it in humid weather, but when I was living in FL, I use to do egg white facials often and it never melted.

  10. lula says

    Thank you so much for this information. My 5 year old was born with ptosis (droopy eyelids) her eyelid muscles didn’t developed all the way. Doctors say the only way to correct this is to have surgery. Although my daughter have to slightly tilt her head to see, she has 20/20 vision. She exercises her eyelids by shutting and opening her eyes as fast a she can for 15 minutes but I will add this to her daily routine. Again thank you.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Lula, so glad you found this helpful! Hope it helps! I was so amazed how great this worked and the ability of the egg white to hold up the extra skin.

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          Sorry to hear it didn’t work. Hmm..You could try using a fan or hairdryer to dry the egg white after applying it. This will help speed up the drying time and make sure to hold the eyelid closed. It took me 3 or 4 tries to get it to work for me, changing how high I put it or covering a wider area. Also, could try applying it on top of the first application.

      • says

        Just do a search for, “facial exercises” and I am sure that you will find them. I found these in a Glamour magazine back in the late 70’s or early 80’s and it would take too long to explain it here in the comments. Best of luck!

  11. Maryam says

    Im so sad ):
    I was so excited to try this.
    It worked for one of my eyelids but it didn’t for the other one.
    I guess my eyelid’s too heavy to hold the shape.
    At first it works but once I start blinking it goes to its normal shape. /:

    • dsc60 says

      I’m afraid mine will be too heavy too. I haven’t tried it yet but I don’t want to get my hopes up. I can’t tell you how often I’m in the 5%, 10%, etc. that the products, tips and so on don’t work on. Ironically, I’d say about 95% of the time I’m in “that” group. It doesn’t matter what we’re talking about. So frustrating.

  12. says

    I can NOT wait to try this today!!! When I seen this on Pinterest I jumped on over here. Thank you :)
    Also, about the bee allergy and honey, that is not true. I am deathly allergic to honeybees, to the point I have to have 3 epi-pens on me at all times in the summer and be no more than 30 min from a hospital… but I eat honey! Lots of it. I even use raw honey on my face for acne treatments if I get a blemish. That works great too. :)

    I have hooded asian eyes and i don’t think i have a crease. Can you tell me where i should put the egg whites on? Thanks!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It may take some experimenting, when close eyes, put a line of it across the center. You may have to apply it a few times to find the right place, trying it a little higher or lower, or both and covering a wider area. In between, you don’t have to wash it off, just put it on top. It really helped when I held my eyelid closed the entire time and sat in front of fan so it would dry quicker.

  14. Christina says

    Have u considered facial yoga or facial exercises? They are wonderful at lift in the eyelid area.

  15. Bri says

    What if you only have droopy eyes when you first wake up? Will this remedy stop or prevent the droopy eyes?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I’m not sure if it is able to alter how the eyelid falls if used over a long period of time, I’ve only used it here and there. But you could apply it at night and the results should last through the next day.

  16. says

    Oh my giddy aunt this worked awesome!!! I just tried it and put 3 coats on and I have a brand new looking eyelid! You just made the one thing I hate in pictures go away! Thank you so much!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      That’s awesome!! I’m so happy it worked for you. Isn’t it amazing?! and it’s so simple!

  17. Alexis says

    Hi! Two questions:
    Will my skin be smelly throughout the day??? :( Sounds a little bit gross to leave it on to me. I’m scared my boyfriend will notice some weird egg smell when he gives me kisses P: Haha!
    Also, could this work for bags under the eyes? 😀 It sounds like the egg white could “tighten” anything we don’t want on our face…

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Alexis, it will most definitely not be smelly! You only need a very small dot of egg white for it to work and it does not smell at all, it’s also invisible too! You could try it on the back of your hand or face first just to test it out. It may work for under eye bags, I haven’t tried it for that yet! It does tighten and smooth out the skin anywhere you put it, so it might work!

  18. Dalyne says

    I was born with hooded eyes (very hard to find eye makeup tips for hooded eyes) and as I’m getting older (50+) the hoods are beginning to sag and the little bit of eyelids I always had are slowly disappearing. I tried your egg white suggestion and…wow! I’m not saying that “it was a miracle” and I had regular looking eyes afterwards but, oh my, it definitely lifted them enough to see the difference. And I’m not sure why but my eyes felt wider perhaps because the heaviness was lifted a bit. Thank you so much for sharing this information (I also pinned it on Pinterest) because it is difficult to find information on hooded eyes.

  19. Anonymous says

    I have tried this but it’s noticeable as it dries white and ‘crusty ‘ looking. What am I doing wrong?!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      The results are immediate! Right after it is applied to the eyelid just keep eyelid shut for 1 minute until it dries and then see the results :)

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It lasts about a day or two after applied, so you may have to reapply every few days! But it lasts surprisingly long!

  20. Dinah Sutton says

    I have the egg white on right now…my skin feels so tight and wonderful…I am 65 and totally Paleo etc….love crossfit and now something great to do with the egg whites…LOL…I was considering having my eyelids done…hopefully this will do the trick with out surgery….thanks so much..I love all of your suggestions

  21. Dinah Sutton says

    OMGosh…I just sat here typing my last comment and went in to see what my eyes looked like and I CAN”T believe the difference…this is amazing…I am going to use this everyday…we live in Florida and would like to know how this holds up with heat and humidity

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      So glad it worked great! It really is amazing and so simple! It has held up well in the humidity for me, I often travel to FL to visit family and still works great!

  22. Fitness me says

    What about exercise to fix this problem? I do Flex Effect facial exercises and it got rid of every droopy bit on my face – eyes, jowls, cheeks. It works and it’s all natural.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      For the egg white facial, I put just pure egg white on my face and let it sit for about 30 minutes and then wash off. Some leave it on certain areas to help smooth the skin and eliminate the appearance of wrinkles.

  23. JulieAnna says

    Is it alright to keep the egg white on the eye lid all day? It seems like over time this will dry the eyelid and make the “hooding” situation worse. Has anyone experiencing drying?

    I just tried the egg white trick and it is truly a miracle. The results are amazing.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I am so glad it worked great! The results really are amazing. I keep it on all day and even for 2 or 3 days. It lasts quite long, but after 2 or 3 days I reapply because it starts wearing off.

      • JulieAnna says

        Thanks for the tip Lori. Do you do not have any issues with the egg white drying your eyelid?

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          Not at all! If there is ever a spot that seems dry, I just lightly brush the excess off with a cloth (very gently)

  24. Linda says

    Gonna give this a try…but wondering about Salmonella setting in and getting absorbed into the skin…granite it’s a small amount..just a thought I had.

    • Misti says

      I have Ptosis and wont do this. In theory good idea however unless you would eat an egg left out at room temp, you shouldn’t be applying it to your skin either. Whether it absorbs or not all it takes is for you to touch it then your finger goes to your mouth or you prepare foods and salmonella is spread. This is probably why you wont find this idea elsewhere I hate to say.

  25. says

    I’m sorry to be the one to say this, but this is not really a “cure” is it? It merely stiffens the eyelid skin in a given pose and thus pushes the droopy bagging part of the eyelid back as you open your eyes, right? Don’t get me wrong, this is still the very best method I’ve been able to stumble upon, that offers immediate results (unlike facial yoga/exercises) and is well within the natural category of methods. I am only pointing out that the effect is purely mechanical, and will only last as long as you have the egg white on your eyelids. So my point is, calling it a “remedy” might be overselling it a bit… Definitely worth it for a party where you want to look extra sharp though, but I wouldn’t want to apply this every day. Also; the added stiffness to the eyelid skin is not unnoticeable – not to me at least :)

    Thanks for sharing though.

    • dsc60 says

      If it works, it works. I didn’t get the impression at all that this would replace the surgery and I don’t think it’s suggested that way. For many it does “remedy” the situation. Even if it’s just for a little while. I see many here have appreciated the tip. I have BOUGHT things that haven’t worked but this blogger isn’t trying to sell anything. She’s passing on info that helped her and obviously many others. Why point out the negative instead of the positive? She’s not gaining anything from passing this on so why dissenting. Geez.

  26. rebecca says

    After removing yolk from egg can you store rest of egg whites? If so how long before going bad. I would hate to waste a whole egg for one use.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Absolutely, I store the egg white in my fridge to reuse throughout the week. Only a small drop is needed each time.

    • Mrhycannon says

      I’m going to have to try this again.. Maybe I used too much eggwhite but it took so long to dry that I gave up and washed it off.. How do you determine how much to use.?

      • Lori, Health Extremist says

        I sit in front of fan to speed up the drying time :) I dip a q-tip into the egg white and that is enough for me, but it may take a couple of tries to get it in the right spot.

  27. Genet Kelly says

    So, you just let the egg white dry on your eye lid and leave it there? You can put your makeup on over it? Or do you wipe it off before you put your makeup on?

  28. Lucy from uk says

    Sounds fab, but same question as Genet, can and how do you apply make up without effecting it? Am eager to try it out because at nearly 40 I need all the help i can get!

  29. Kate says

    I just tried this–AND IT REALLY WORKS! Pretty amazing! I’m 57 and have developed heavily lidded upper eyelids. This took 10 years off my eyes, and gives me time to save for more permanent options. It works better on one eye, but I think I can figure out how to reapply extra to the other eye for more symmetrical results. Can’t believe I’ve not read of this before. To anybody considering trying this out–TRY IT! It really works!

  30. Kate says

    I just told my little sister about the egg white treatment. She countered with another solution–Mederma! A little Mederma applied in the same way as egg whites works equally as well. Also, Mederma is derived from onions, and although it may not be organic, it’s pretty natural. Plus, it’s easy to transport. I recommend this as well. Just tried it, and it works at least as well as the egg whites.

    • Chloe says

      The skin on the eyelids is VERY thin and has lots of little veins that can soak up chemicals and deliver them right into the eye.

      Mederma might have something in it derived from onions, but it’s also loaded with chemicals that I wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole, let alone putting the stuff on my eyelids.

      Active Ingredients of Mederma:

      Avobenzone 3% , Octocrylene (10%) , Oxybenzone 6% , Water , Allium Cepa (Red Onion) Bulb Extract , C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate , Dicaprylyl Carbonate , Hydrogenated Lecithin , Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride , Panthenol , Pentylene Glycol , Phenoxyethanol , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Glycerin , Ammonium Acryloyl Dimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer , Fragrance , Squalane , Methylparaben , Xanthan Gum , Disodium EDTA , Ceramide 3 , Sodium Hyaluronate , Butylparaben , Ethylparaben , Propylparaben , Isobutylparaben

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It works immediately as soon as the egg white dries, about a minute or so. I speed up the waiting time for it to dry by sitting in front of a fan.

        When you say it lasts 2-3 days, is that only without washing? Will it be removed right after washed out. I can’t do without washing and cleansing my face. What about after using makeup remover

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          For me, it lasts a couple of days as long as I don’t rub the eyelid area with soap and water. I still wash my face, but don’t apply the soap to the eyelid area.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I apply it every 2 to 3 days. As long as I don’t wash it off, it will stay on and last quite long.

  35. Lola says

    I’ve never heard of this before but it seems like a “Well duh! Why didn’t I think of this?” type of question. I know of eyelid tape and eyelid glue (popular in some Asian cultures). Basically, it’s putting something in the way of your natural eyelid fold that “holds up” the flesh. When I’m tired or my allergies are acting up, one of my eyes becomes hooded. Not a good look to have mismatched eyes! I’ve been cutting my own medical tape into little slivers to use as eyelid tape and it has worked well, but I love the idea of this natural egg white option. Can’t wait to try it. With eyelid tape or eyelid glue, you can get different looks depending on where you put it. Probably the same with the egg white so try experimenting. Here’s a photo of eyelid glue:

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Let us know how it works for you! Where you put it does affect how it looks, it takes me a couple of tries to get it in the right spot.

  36. kdm says

    This worked! Awesommmmmmme! So glad I found this. I inky noticed this problem in the last two yrs. One eye is hooded while the other is not. I’m not sure if this happened or was always this way but in self conscious about it, thus I never wear contacts BC glasses help hide it. I put eggs whites on the hooded eye and they r a lot closer to matching! I used egg whites out of the carton. They stay good for months. Thank you!!!!!!

    Omg thankyou so much, ive been so low about my eyelids and my eyes appearing small, I have almond eyes and they were just getting so small and was not happy with my eyelids… you honestly dont know how much you have made my day, you say it lasted 2 days for you? If I accidently got egg white in my eye it wouldnt effect it would it? Can you buy any eye cream as tightening and effectuve as this? Thankyou so much xx

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It lasted a day or two and after that I just reapply it. I’m not aware of any creams that have the same affect.

  39. Scott says

    So what if one wanted the opposite effect? I’m a guy, and on a guy, hooded eyes look pretty awesome. Think Russel Crowe/Gerard Butler, who’s eyes look very deep set, and always look like they’re staring into the sun. My eyes, though, look like your eyes in your after picture. I want them to look like the before picture. Any thoughts?


    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Interesting that your brought that up! Many like the ‘hooded eyelid’ look. Hmm..I’m not aware of anything that would have the opposite affect though.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It’s not permanent, it only works while applied. Some use egg white on their face to reduce the appearance of lines.

  40. says

    Do u have to wash it after it dries up? I have some loose skin on my eyelids ! I wanna make it tight , coz I cannot even apply eye liner properrly! So this will work right?
    And its not permanent?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It only works while it is on, so if you wash it after it dries the affect will be gone. It’s not permanent it lasts a day or two, but as soon as you wash it, it comes right off.

    I don’t like my eyelid. my eyeliner isn’t visible at all and I hate that :( I’ll definitely try your remedy.. thanks for sharing such a useful experience with others.

  42. gloria says

    Mix 1 tsp of Alum Powder (found either with spices or canning products) to 1 egg white. Then apply to facial skin with a cosmetic sponge. Leave on until dry then rinse your face with warm water. Your skin will tighten for a lovelier appearance.

  48. Briony says

    Wow thank you so much for sharing this! My eyes have always been fairly hooded but my right one very much more so than my left. I used to be really self conscious about it, so much so that I used to cover my eye all the time with my fringe. Now that I’m older, I’m not so bothered and I’ve learnt to do my makeup around it, but a couple of summers ago I had a magical 3 months where my eyelid ‘behaved’ itself and stayed tucked up. Since then it’s stayed hooded and every now and then I reminisce about the ‘glory days’ haha! I’ve been thinking about ‘training’ my eyelids for a while out of curiosity, but I really didn’t fancy using glue or tape – something about pulling tape off my eyelid regularly makes me feel like I would stretch it even more? So as soon as I read this I had a go and it really works, amd being able to just wash it off means no pulling at your eyelids.

    The training process takes a few months I know, and knowing me I may well get bored and give up, but knowing this technique has given me the impulse to give it a try! Thank you!

    p.s. thank you to Lola for the link with eyeglue placement, it was really helpful =)

  49. maria says

    i am 29 and i felt that I am having a drooping eyelid maybe due to stress and lack of sleep.. i tried exercise of lifting thr skin but it only works when done daily many times. massaging regluarly at night with castor oil or mixture of castor and olive oil works v v well for skin tightening around the eyes and removing of crows feet and circles. but it had to be done on regular basis. I cannot do so as i live in a humid country where its darn hot and humid. Coming to your idea of egg white, God bless you man… seriously…. on first application i felt it quite uplifted and i applied it at the moment i read the blog. n i am writing with egg white applied on lid.. thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu so mych.. but I have a query i heard that eg white could cause wrinkles around the eyes after it dries up, that is why they do not allow mask to be around mouth and eyes section?? plzz help me with this… and yes, egg white mask is superb especially for those who have oily and open pored skin.. works wonders…. 3 times a week is more than enough for young females and older can look at their requirement……….
    plz let me know… and thanks a lot..what a super remedy… continued usage would help ofc…

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Maria, so glad it worked for you. I think that the small amount applied wouldn’t contribute to wrinkles, especially because of the location. Maybe areas around the ‘crows feet’ area may be more sensitive, but even when applied there, I think that when used in combination with a soothing moisturizer it would be fine.

  50. Sally says

    God bless you for this fantastic idea! Wondering though, if we do this often, can it make eventually make eyelids more saggy? And, if you were to spread a tiny amount on face to tighten it, would it become flaky and noticeable? Thanks.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I don’t believe it would cause the eyelid to become more saggy; however, I haven’t been using it long enough to definitively say. Someone in my family uses it on their face to minimize wrinkles and they put it on, let it dry, and gently rub with a cloth any dry looking areas, so it is invisible.

  51. Name says

    I tried this and it didn’t work. : (
    I tried putting less, putting more, putting it on every part of my lid, letting it dry longer, and it just didn’t work. My natural crease is lower on the lid than most people; it formed that way so that it would be able to hold all that weight over my lid (the “hood”). Could that be the problem? I just don’t understand why else it won’t work after reading everybody’s success comments. Am I doing something wrong? Does it only work on certain people? : (

    • Rachel says

      Ah it’s not working for me either. I have a very thick and droopy Asian hooded eyelid :(( I made a crease but it’s really small and close to my lash line. I really hope we can figure this out!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Sorry to hear it didn’t work. The only thing I would do is try it higher or lower on the eyelid, or both, but sounds like your tried it in different spots. Hmm..for the most part I have heard great results in the comments but some have difficulty, not sure if it is due how it was applied or maybe depends on the person. If you can’t get it to work, hope you can find something that works for you!

    What about bacteria. I just had a phenol peel and am afraid a store bought egg may cause infection? What are your thoughts.

  54. Rachel says

    Hi so I tried this but I just can’t seem to put the egg white on the right place! I have Asian hooded very small and thick eyes and I’ve been using tape for a crease. My left eye has formed a crease already but my right hasn’t so I wanted to use this method instead of the tape on only one of my eyes haha. So I tried multiple times but my eyelids are still heavy and droop :(( I don’t know what to do please help me

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I would try it a few more times, putting it higher, lower or both to see if you can get it in the perfect spot.

      You can use it on one or both. You can first test it on one and see how you like the result.

    • persa says

      Excuse me but what is your problem? Obviously i couldn’t find an answer to my question even though i looked the previous responses and that’s why i asked. So mind your own business. Simple!

      • Anonymous says

        Ooooh, touchy! My comment was general, and not directed at you at all, but at the poster’s that Lori must repeat herself to, why would you think it was you??? As for your rude remark “mind your own business”, this is a public forum silly.

      • Lolly says

        Ooh dear-what an angry response! Why? My post was not directed at you, not at all, but at the people above who asked the same questions repeatedly-that’s all! Crikey.
        As for your rude comment “mind your own business”, this is a public forum silly!
        Seems it’s not only your skin that’s sensitive…..don’t be so aggressive, relax!

  57. J says

    thankyou Lori for this great tip. After googling around your site popped up and just made my day!!! My one eyelid is sometimes droopy and this will definitely help! And you have been too kind to answer all the same questions!

    God bless.

  58. MM says

    Hm I tried it on my heavly hooded eyes… and it so far don’t seemt to help…
    I guess I need to try a few times perhaps…

  59. Diana says

    OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH. I literally have been searching for something to help since forever and i think i finally FINALLY since 3 years of searching found a result.

  60. says

    Hello can I ask if you put the egg white on the eyelid after it drys dose it tired ur eyes can you still blink because if you blink won’t it go back to normal ?xx

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I leave my eyelid shut while applying and I don’t open my eye until it has dried. I sit in front of a fan to speed up the time. But after it has dried I have no problem blinking and don’t even feel it on.

  61. Susan says

    Thank you so much! I was born with hooded eyes and in the past I’ve used eyelid tape and glue to hide it. But after a few months I noticed my eyelids were getting even more hooded. I haven’t tried this yet, but definitely looking toward to trying this!

  62. Wendy says

    Just tried it on my sagging eyelids. I was hoping it would work, but didn’t really thinking it would. But it did! I can see the lower part now. Great tip! Not only natural but also easy and cheap! Thanks!

  63. says

    Omg! I must try this!
    My right eye isn’t really “hooded” but it’s crease wasn’t as even as my left so (due to Michelle Phan’s video) I was convinced to try out the double eye lid tape and glue. Needless to say, I would NOT recommend to do so unless you already have firm eyelid skin. The eyelid tape and glue tugged on my lid so much to the point where it even made my eyes worse and appear smaller :/ My never-hooded-uneven right eyelid is now… Hooded. -.-‘ The glue and tape tugged and stretched out my eyelid skin and it made it worse.
    But this, this is a must try! Thanks!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It sure can, you only need a very small amount each time. I keep mine in the refrigerator and reuse it.

  64. Mei says

    What do you do with the remaining egg whites? Could you save it for the next few days? If you can, how many days should you keep it before throwing it out?

    • Pam Fuller says

      You can buy tiny canisters (cheap as chips from dollar store or pound stores)and put a little egg white in each one and freeze and take one out to use for a couple of days if you are serious about doing this, there are about 8 canisters to a pack, that way one egg would last for ages.
      I use these canisters to put a couple of egg whites in to use for meringues etc after I have used only yolks for a recipe

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      For me, it only works when applied, so I reapply it every few days. I’m not sure whether it may help “train” your eyelid to fall a certain way over time or not, I haven’t been using it long enough.

  65. HN says

    Hi, I have mono-lids and have been using eyelid tape to create double eyelids.
    This made my eyelids even hooded and saggy by the lash line.
    Will using this method help get my eyelids back to how it was originally or is it only temporary and will it only tighten my eyelids on the day I use it?

  66. J says

    you can use a toothpick to draw and tug in the crease better, as you would with double eyelid glue and there are plenty of tutorial vidoes on youtube.
    And to make the residue less visible, you can use a damp Q-tip and dab across gently without wiping off the eggwhites.
    I hope these tips help.

  67. Mindy says

    If I apply this everyday, will the result last forever? Or do you have any other remedies for hooded eyes beside surgery?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It only works while it’s applied. So you could just keep reapplying it everyday! I’ve also seen some use eyelid tape; I haven’t tried it but there is quite a bit of information online.

  68. Emily says

    Hi, I’m 12 years old and i had an acne problem on one of my eyes when I was about four years old. And I was wondering do you mean the white hard eggshell straight out of the freezer or boiled? :)

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Do you mean for improving hooded or a drooping eyelid? It works when used raw, just crack the egg and remove the yellow egg yolk. Then dip a cotton swab into the egg white.

  69. Tiffany says

    Having to crack and egg, separate the yolk from whites then followed by a short storage period..
    There is a simpler solution which may work even better and hit a wider range of people (food allergies)..

    Aloe Vera.

    • Tiffany says

      In the morning; raw honey, witch hazel (acv), aloe vera. At night, removing make-up and toxins with coconut oil. A weekly baking soda scrub. A year ago I started researching and testing different simple, one ingredient fixes to create a minimalist, zero waste, plant-based lifestyle. (Blog pending another year or two of testing before I advise.)

      On a dry washed face, apply as you would a moisturizer remembering the eyelids. Rub any extra into your hands as a lotion (no need for q-tip). Being so close to the eyes and impatience, I do use a hairdryer (barbar ceramic eco) to speed up drying.

      Forehead wrinkles are gone. The eyelids are tightened. Crows feet non-existent. Acne scars healed. Lines around the lips, erased. Even the discoloration has evened to require less make-up! Chamomile tea bags, 15 minutes 1-2x weekly will plump up the dark circles.

      • bibi says

        Hi Lori I’ve just stumbled across your website, I’m so excited I’m going to try the egg white facial and put it on the eyelids tonight. I’ll let you know how it goes. Also Tiffany – I use Coconut Oil every night as a moisturiser and my skin has never looked so healthy in my life, but isn’t it a bit messy trying to remove make-up with it? Especially removing mascara/eye liner? And seriously no forehead wrinkles or crows feet with your beauty regime? Should I just mix the raw honey, aloe vera and witch hazel altogether in a bowl and then apply on my face? Does it need washed off? If so, how long do you keep it on for? I’ll be trying this too. thanks Bibi. x

        • Tiffany says

          @Bibi, I suppose the coconut oil is messy to remove make-up but I wipe clean with a cotton pad which works for me. I have also switched to using Physician’s formula makeup, soon to test pantry items but the entire process has allowed less usage, less mess, less negative reactions if not removed.

          I apologize, the three items were to match the typical 3-step routine. Raw honey can be spread over the entire face and left as a mask (as you brush you teeth, etc) then rubbed off with water just as face wash. Witch hazel is a natural toner, used with a cotton pad. (I’m testing my personal ratios of apple cider vinegar:water for a switch). Then once dry, apply the aloe vera as you would a moisturizer remembering the eyelids. Make-up can be applied once dry.

          I hope this clarifies it and works for you! *This routine has been used the past year after testing and has taken off many years of damage!!

          • Anonymous says

            Thanks so much Tiffany! I’ll be trying it out, love the part that it takes off many years of damage. Bibi x

  70. Patricia says

    Hi! OMG I am so shocked! I did for a first time this morning and difference is like WOW! I’m only 16 and my eyes aren’t that hooded, they’re kind of like megan fox has but still worked to give me a bit more eyelid space! Thank You so much! :)

  71. Patricia says

    Oh yeah, I wanted to aks and forgot 😀
    Would using this method let’s say twice a day give pernament results?
    Thanks :)

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I’m not sure, I’ve only been using it for a short time so I couldn’t say. Some methods using tape suggest that when you leave it on the eyelid for so many weeks, the skin on your eyelid becomes trained to fall a certain way. The same idea may apply to the egg white, it’s possible.

  72. says

    hi. i had eyelids naturally but again i used eyelashes glue instead of double eyelid glue. i had beautiful eyelids but after usin that for a week i have got droopy eyes with no eyelid. do u think this can bring back my eyelid or be permenant for those who have droopy eyes. or it works the same as glue.

  73. Melinda says

    Thank you so much for the website. You have been very generous trying to answer everyones questions and comments. I have been struggling with droopy eyelids since I was 20. Now 43, even worse. Your tip helped. Took a few tries, but gave me some confidence back. Thank you.

  74. EmmaJayne26 says

    well it certainly works i found this site this morning and tried it straight away just want to say thanks soooo much its great :)

  75. Nicole says

    Thankyou ive been looking for a natural way to lift my eyelids since forever but i havent been able to find any. I was reading through some of the comments and you said you didnt have to wash it off but is there any smell left and does it work on that fold in your inner corner of the eye

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I apply it on the crease/fold. It doesn’t smell at all and dries on clear, so it is pretty much invisible.


    Excellent advice and 100% natural. Go organic and free-range where possible! Thank you so much for posting!

    You mentioned that thyroid can also cause drooping eyelids, do you happen to know whether or not this form of droopy eyelid is reversible as soon as the thyroid is under control?

  77. laralucy says

    Iv never had this problem of drooping eyelids before but just recently started getting it i dont know what caused it i am only 16 but this worked a bit for me i dint know u cud get it this young i thought it was a problem as you got older :\

    • Kaitlin says

      I’m 20 and started getting it in high school too. I get scared about premature aging too. Don’t worry! People will still think you’re a hotty. Believe it or not, people all start getting characteristics of aging in their own way, we just don’t notice.

  78. patti says

    Hi! I know you have had many responses and I tried to read as many as I could but I couldn’t read them all. I hope I don’t repeat someone else … THANK YOU!!! I Stumbled upon your tip and tried it. I kept my eyes closed as instructed and when I opened them, I could see better than I have in so long. As a bonus I actually looked better too. I will do this daily. Thank you so much!


  79. Hannah says

    Hello! I was curious about trying this. I have the kind of hooded eyelid where I have excess skin, do you think this remedy would work on me?

  80. Kaitlin says

    I use face moisturizer daily, so I was wondering if you knew if it’s best to do this before moisturizing or after. I would also like to know why you think so just for a little more reassurance and credibility (nothing personal). Thank you!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It shouldn’t matter as long as you aren’t applying the moisturizer on the eyelid or very close to the eyelid.

  81. hazel says

    i like ur idea but i think i put to much on my left eye and it made it low and it look lower from my right eye is it anyway i can get my left eye back to normal like it was?

  82. Keyosha says

    i really like it like foreal im only 16 and it worked good on my right eye. when it go back to normal is it going to look exactly how it looked before we put it on!?? and i made a mistake and put it on my left eye and now my left eye look different is the egg white go leave off my left eye and make it back normal how it looked before i used it??

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It only works while it’s on, so as soon as you wash or wipe it off, it should go right back to normal.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      For me, the egg white only works while it’s on, so as soon as I wash it off, my skin goes back to how it was before.

  83. Anonymous says

    i didn’t know i had to wash it off i left it on :( this happen November 22 eye still didn’t go back to normal :-/

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      LOL. It’s not “photoshoped”. Just check out the other pictures of me on my my site. It really works, just scroll up to see the comments from others who have tried it.

  84. caro says

    oh i will tried it, its like a natural double eyelid glue 😀 love to read this, i have uneven eyes XD common asian problem i think, i have one eye with double eyelid and the other one almost like a monolid. :( going to tried it, its way to much less expensive than bought online a japanesse double eyelid glue 😀

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It should work for both. I have hooded eyelids and my mom has dropping eyelids and it worked for both of us.

  85. Tiffany says

    I want to thank you so much for this!! I tried it first time tonight with amazing results!! I have been having trouble with dealing with the whole aging process since i am about to be 40 and my eyes have been one of the worst problems!!! Thank you again!!

  86. Toni says

    I’d also like to know if the eggwhite can be applied to the upper eyelid as well as the crease to tighten the lid to open the eye further.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I apply it on my upper eyelid, sometimes extending it from the crease to cover a wider area to make sure it works.

  87. says

    I tried this for the first time this morning. I can feel my eyelids tightening but so far I am not seeing much results. I will continue to try this for the next couple of days and see if I start to see improvement. I’m just wondering though, wouldn’t it be better to put this on a bedtime?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      You could apply it before bed or in the morning. The only negative I found about applying it before bed is that I sometimes would accidentally rub it off.

  88. brandy says

    Hi my niece rub the egg white all on her eyelids and it made her eyelid little is it something she can do becuz she keep on crying and stressing saying the eggwhite made her eyelids little? shes 17

    • Mary Land says

      Tell your niece to wash off the egg white gently with warm water and mild soap. Additionally, I think this remedy is more ideal for older women who are experiencing the signs of age, such as loose skin, droopy lids, sagging brows, and wrinkles. Not sure if children should be experimenting with this remedy.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      The egg white only works while it is on, so as soon as I wash or rub it off, it no longer has any effect.

  89. Jen says

    Hi, thanks for the tip. Is there any risk to bacteria in the eggs getting on your makeup applicator or in your makeup as you suggested you could use make up over the egg on the eyelid. Thanks so much!

  90. Marissa South says

    I have droopy eyelids also, but I am allergic to eggs, and I can’t even touch eggs or I get a terrible allergic reaction! Is there any alternative solution to “fix” my droopy eyelids naturally (and with not makeup)?

      • Anonymous says

        Hi there, I’m very interested in using honey, witch hazel, aloe Vera and honey on my face and wondered what I should buy as there seems to be so many different types of each. Which are the best? Thanks, Jane.

        • Lori Klein says

          Raw organic honey is best. You can also find organic aloe Vera or just use some from the plant. You should be able to find all of them at your local health food store.

  91. Anonymous says

    Hi, I am 15 years old and I was wondering if I did try this, after while could it make me age more quicker? or would it slow do the ageing?

    • Lori Klein says

      It only lasts while it is on, so if you wash it off it will no longer have an affect until it’s reapplied.

  92. Dee says

    I have had botox and unfortunately it has leaked into my eye area and I now have a dropped eyebrow which has caused by eyelid to droop. Told its only temporary thank goodness but I have to wait till the botox wears off before it improves. Sorta made the botox useless in the first place. Anyhow cant wait to get home and try this. Please let it work as I hate the look of my eye and dont want to wait 3 months for it to fix itself.

  93. Kristine says

    My concern is does the egg become a potential for growing bacteria? Which is found naturally in eggs. And then using makeup brushes to apply makeup on top, bacteria can transfer to the brushes

    • Lori Klein says

      I only keep the egg white for a few days to prevent bacteria. The bacteria can be a concern on a makeup brush, so it may best to wash it after each use.

  94. Anonymous says

    Thank you so much!!!! I was curious just how much it would help so I took a before and after shot. I had to put it on a second time slightly higher than the crease and saw immediate results. I have one lid that droops more than the other so it was quite noticeable. This is a great tip!

    • Lori Klein says

      So glad to hear it helped! I always take before and after pics now whenever I try anything, it really helps to see the difference.

  95. Ashley says

    Thank you so,so much!
    If i could i would hug you now! as soon as I read this,i went to try it out. ITS AMAZING! Thank you so,so much!
    I’m 17 and I suffer from allergies and it causes tired,droopy eyelids and I look so tired! But as soon as I tried it,my eyes looked more open.Thank you!

    • Lori Klein says

      It does make my skin feel a little tight when I have it on as a facial mask, but when I apply it on my eyelid, since it’s a small amount I don’t notice it.

  96. Kim says

    I will try this today!!! I’m excited because in pictures you can tell that my eyelids are hooded – makes me look older than I am and I hate that! I’ll let you know the result!

  97. Anonymous says

    THANK YOU SO MUCH MY GOSH xx but if i dont put eye make up on, it kinda looks crusty on the edges if you know what i mean :/

    • Lori Klein says

      That’s easy to fix :) Just take a soft hand towel and gently rub the area, the crusty edges will be gone, but it will still hold well.

  98. Hayden says

    Hi! im only 14 and i have droopy eyelids and i think it may be caused by toxins and not getting enough sleep, but anyways will this still work even if the droopiness isn’t caused by age?

    • Hayden says

      oh and do you have to put it on in the morning or can you use it as an overnight remedy and then wash your face in the morning to apply makeup on regularly?

    • Lori Klein says

      It should work for anyone of any age. I am in my 20’s and use it because I have naturally ‘hooded eyes’. Let us know how it works for you.

  99. Anna says

    Hi this is the first time I’m on this site and I wanted to leave a comment even though this post seems older than a year but I was wondering is this also supposed to help people who’s “hood” is towards the inner/mid part of the eye because I’ve been trying for 2 days and still can’t seem to make it make a difference. Do you have to do one eye at a time to let it dry? I’ve been doing both together while looking down into the mirror then closing them to dry. And am I only supposed to put the egg on where my eye creases(that line where it folds) on the entire cease? I’m not sure if I’m doing it wrong or if it just doesn’t work on me

    • Lori Klein says

      I do only one eye at a time until I get it perfect then switch to the other eye. You may have to experiment with where you put it a little. The first time I used it, it took me at least 8 times to get it just right. I would try putting it across the whole crease then applying it higher or lower, until you find the best spot. Hope this helps!

  100. Kelly says

    Hi! I don’t have a problem with my eyelids, but I have sagging (drooping?) under eyes… I was wondering if this remedy could help with that.
    I tried applying the egg white under my eye, but there was no change in my eye’s appearance, though I could feel the tightness… Should I apply the egg white in a different area? Or should I change the amount? I’ve experimented quite a bit, but nothings seemed to work…

    • Lori Klein says

      It helps with the upper eyelid because it tightens the skin making it appear higher. Hmm..I’m not sure how it would work on the under eye area. Some use it on other areas to tighten skin though, so it should tighten the skin on the area it’s applied to.

  101. ASDAMEN says

    My eye lids kind of fall a bit on my eyes, giving me a stupid, donkey look.
    Is it this, droopy eye lids, for which your technique will work?

  102. ashley says

    This is awesome! Havent tried it yet but definitely plan to! Im 27 and trying to do preventative aging without botox.. So awesome to see all these positive results!! Lori Good for you for sharing this simple yet life changing to some secret. It will come back to you 10 times! You should really think about a career in marketing by the way!;)

  103. Kimberly says

    Wow, thanks a ton! I have to try this later. My creases are asymmetrical which is a point of embarrassment for me. One is hooded and neither crease at the right spot. I’m considering buying eyelid tape but I want to try this before. Even if it doesn’t work, this was so nice of you! (I’m 15)

  104. Julia smith says

    With the left over egg whites, do you put it in a container and refrigerate it like you would with a normal egg?

  105. Jatin says

    Great technique, but I have a question/complaint about it.

    Does anyone else find that it makes their eyelid uncomfortable after applying the egg white. Only one of my eyelids is drooping, so I apply it on that one, and it feels very uncomfortable, like the drooping skin is being pushed back instead of becoming naturally tighter.

  106. says

    I wondered about something. Do you think that eventually this might stretch the skin more and cause more wrinkles since it’s tightening and then loosening? I wondered how long your mother has been using this method and if she has noticed more wrinkles when she is not using the egg white. I would love to find a good remedy and this sounds wonderful.l

    • Lori Klein says

      I don’t think it would cause more wrinkles, but that’s a great question! She hasn’t noticed any increase in wrinkles..actually she said they have minimized, but she is also taking collagen from grass-fed cows (which prevents and reverses wrinkles).

  107. Jennifer says

    I have mono eyelids but when i raise my eyebrow and bend my head(forward down) a little,i have double eyelids.Do you think this egg process will work to have a permanent double eyelid???Please Help!!!

  108. Emily says

    Just tried it, I think it did work, my eyes appears bigger at least I think so :), thanks a lot Lori. The only thing is I think it’s hard to carry when I’m travelling, I don’t think the egg can maintain fresh after 10 hours flight. Is there any way?

    • Lori Klein says

      Glad it worked! I would suggest buying new eggs when you get to your travel location if possible. Or maybe you could put it in a lunch bag with a freezer pack to help keep it cool through the trip
