No more raccoon eyes with these easy and natural tips.
It doesn’t take much, just one extra episode of your favorite show before bed and that’s it: you wake up with tired eyes and dark circles. Thankfully, there are some things you can do that will actually help you brighten your skin around your eyes, giving you a fresher look and a rejuvenated glow. Check them out:
Black or green tea may help narrow blood vessels and reduce the blue coloring. Steep two tea bags like you would normally do, squeeze excess water, put them in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then place them over your eyes for 15 minutes or more. Voilá!
As cucumbers are full of vitamin C and folic acid, they are great for cell growth and they also battle environmental stress, resulting in less irritation and puff and a reduction in the typical purple bloom.
If you do it for 30 seconds without rubbing or pushing too hard you can enhance lymph drainage. These massages may even skin tone and reduce inflammation.
You might go for a moisturizing salve that includes tea, coffee, or cucumber extract that can also help you tackle fine lines and creases.
Extra tip: Try not to put makeup on the bags under your eyes, you are just going to make the problem worst in the long term. Instead, try to relax a bit and start with these tips. Sometimes, a natural approach can go a long way, even if it takes a little bit longer to see results!
