Go to the mirror and check. Are there tell-tale fine lines spreading from the corner of your eyes? Are there permanent dark circles that never budge? Are baggy eyes an inevitable part of your day? Then, you need these hacks to take care of the skin under your eyes.
It is not your face that gives out your age, but the delicate area under your eyes. It is thinner than any part of your body and twice as likely to develop the signs of ageing. And no amount of concealer or foundation can really help cover it up, which is precisely why, you need to indulge the area to some added TLC.
But, before we further explore the herbal masks for dark circles, here are a few rules you need to abide by. Never apply your face wash, scrub or use other harsh products directly on the area around your eyes. Keep from rubbing the area with your palm often.
Get the required 8 hours of sleep each night. Never step under direct sunlight without a filter. Keep hydrating your system with the required amount of H20. And cut down on smoke and caffeine.
Other than that, here are some golden tips on how to take care of the skin under eyes naturally that show results!
Say No To Dark Circles
Take 1 vitamin E capsule, prick and squeeze out the gel in a bowl. Add a few drops of olive oil to it. Mix well. And gently apply it to the area under your eyes. Let it sit overnight. Packed with fatty acids, this mask will hydrate and nourish the area, reducing dark circles.
Baggy Eyes, Goodbye!
Take two used green tea bags. Pop them in the refrigerator for an hour. Later, place them on your eyes, let them sit until the coldness seeps out. Green tea contains a chock-full of antioxidants that stimulate lymphatic flow, soothe muscles around your eyes, and therefore reduce baggy eyes.
Crow feet, No More!
Take organic honey (a teaspoon) and using cotton, apply it to the area under your eyes. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then wipe it clean with a wet, damp cloth. Repeat it 2 to 3 times a week. Amino acids in honey help retain moisture, which in turn erases fine lines.
Take an equal part of cucumber juice and green tea. Fill an ice tray with the solution. Place it in the refrigerator to solidify. Once it does, rub the ice cubes on the area around your eyes. Do this every day.
Tannins in green tea shrink the swollen tissue, and water in cucumber soothes and shrinks blood vessels, removing puffiness.
Eye Brightening Mask
Dip a cotton ball into chilled rose water, and apply it on the area around your eyes. Let it get soaked naturally. Follow it up by massaging the area with a good under-eye cream. Rose water cleanses the area, removing dirt and pollutants that are embedded deep inside the pores, offering a clear canvas for the under-eye cream to work.
Skin Strengthening Mask
Take egg white in a bowl; and using a fork, whisk it until you get a fluffy paste. Add 3 drops of almond oil and mix until it blends. Apply it to the area around your eyes. Wait till it dries and then rinse with plain water.
Proteins present in egg and vitamin E present in almond, both improve the collagen count of the skin, which in turn improves elasticity of the delicate skin under your eyes.
