After the excess of partying on News Year Eve I thought that this would be a helpful post! D-puff and get ready to party again!
- Slices of cold cucumber or raw potato over your eyelids. This will cool your eyes, reduce the puffiness and also remove any dark circles. Lie down and leave on for 15-30 minutes. The natural astringent powers in them both constricts blood vessels and reduces swelling. Potato is meant to be very effective in removing dark circles too because of its high starch content.
- Tea bags of chamomile is also an effective natural remedy. Moisten two tea bags with cold water and rest them on your closed eyes for 15 minutes.
- Dip two cotton wool balls in cold milk and place on your eyes for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Take 2-3 cold strawberries, cut into thin slices and put them on your eyes. Strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy, which is very effective for keeping skin smooth and fresh. Don’t forget to wash your eyes afterwards.
- Drink lots and lots of water! Rehydrate!
