Little Lesson: Soften Wrinkles, Crinkles, & Refresh Allergy Eyes
For cooling and soothing tired, irritated and stressed eyes, the following tricks can be found right in your kitchen. Revitalize with cool veggie slices, cotton pads, or tea bags. Mother Nature knew what she was doing.
Place thin chilled cucumber slices on eyelids for 10 min.
The chill, coupled with the natural, mild astringency in cucumber juice soothes and gently tightens eye area.
Place damp, chilled tea bags on your eyelids for 10 min.
The tannin in tea has a lightly astringent effect on the skin. Black tea is best. Lie down and rest with tea bags on your closed eyes to calm skin and relieve puffiness.
Place cotton pads soaked in water and witch hazel on eyelids for 10 min.
This plant extract is a proven, classic anti-inflammation remedy – especially effective at soothing and reducing puffiness.
Place thin discs of fresh, peeled potato on eyelids for 10 min.
The natural potato “juice” easily absorbs heat from your skin, and provides a soothing, sensation for puffy or irritated lids.
