DIY- Under Eye Masks For Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes
Hello! My Tribe,
This seems to be the most common issue people have as I get asked about this all the time.
So many women and men wake up every morning, stagger to the bathroom and look back at their reflection with some seriously tired, puffy eyes. Not the best way to start the day! If under eye bags are dragging you down, give them a wake-up call with these simple, DIY under eye masks.
DIY eye masks are easy to make, inexpensive and do the job as well as a store-bought one. Plus you can add pure, natural ingredients that are sure to be found in any home. From cucumber to almonds, these combinations are free of chemicals and are sure to help you diminish your dark circles. Blend all the ingredients in a paste and store in a container. Cut one round cotton pad in half and dip in the paste. Apply under the eyes for 15 minutes and wash off any leftover residue.
1.Cucumber and Rosewater
Cucumbers have been used as an amazing home remedy for ages because of its high water content, Vitamin C content and soothing properties. Cucumbers contain antioxidants and flavonoids that reduce redness, swelling, and irritation.
Rosewater contains vitamin C and A, as well as flavonoids. It is a natural astringent with anti-inflammatory properties. It is also incredibly rejuvenating and refreshing. And Rosewater isn’t just about the fantastic fragrance– it also soothes and rejuvenates tired skin. Another bonus is that it acts as a toner reducing the size of skin pores at the same time.
2. Potato juice and green tea
A great source of starch, potatoes have anti-inflammatory and skin lightening properties that help fade away the dark shadows of under eye circles. Furthermore, the starch in them reduces inflammation and soothes tired eyes. Vitamin C in potatoes initiates the synthesis of collagen that in turn makes the skin look younger.
We all know the amazing anti-aging and properties of green tea when drunk but the benefit extends to treating undereye bags as well. Green tea contains antioxidants and tannins which shrink swelling caused by fluids around the eyes.
3. Turmeric and Vitamin E oil
Yet another natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, turmeric minimizes dark circles. Known for adding a yellow sheen to food, turmeric can counter the dark purplish shade of the under eyes.
Vitamin E is a perfect add on to turmeric. Vitamin E is a popular ingredient in anti-aging creams and serums as it helps fight the effect of free radicals that speed up signs of aging like wrinkles. So when massaged under the eye, it can repair tired skin and keep it moisturized.
4. Rosehip oil and Almond powder
Almond oil is a wonderful hydrating agent which helps fade away dark circles and minimizes the appearance of crow-feet wrinkles. Almond oil is perfect for delicate skin too as it is naturally rich in retinol, vitamin E, and vitamin K.
Rosehip oil is an essential fatty acid that moisturizes and plumps the delicate thin skin around the eyes. Loaded with vitamin C, rosehip oil fights wrinkle-causing free radicals and even out pigmentation.
