1. Potatoes for puffy eyes

Surely you’ve had those mornings where you discover an unsightly puffiness that makes you look tired or sick in the mirror. You may see exaggerated wrinkles or bbs under your eyes as well. To treat these conditions easily try slicing a small potato, peeled and washed. Place a slice on each eye for approximately 15 minutes. You’ll notice a reduction in water retention and inflammation. Simply rinse with warm water afterwards.

2. Thick and luscious lashes

Have a special event or date night planned? Want to sport some thick and luscious lashes for your special night? Try this advice. You’ll need 50 grams of vaseline and 25 grams of castor oil. Mix them together and apply each night to your lashes for at least a week. You’ll soon see results in eyelash growth and health as long as you are consistent with the treatment.

3. Mint for your under eyes

Those dark circles under your eyes can have a real negative affect on your appearance. If everyone is asking whether you’re sick or sad, you may need to address the issue soon. So how do you treat dark circles under your eyes without layering on pounds of makeup? Try mint. A quick, and easy remedy, this recipe takes only about 5 mint leaves. Blend them until you get a smooth paste. Place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes so that it cools.

Once cooled, apply the paste to the skin below your eyes and leave on for about 15 minutes to boost blood circulation and erase those dark spots. This is a great option to daily treatments and is quick and easy to create.

4. Red eyes

Red, irritated eyes can happen any day. Whether from allergies or too many hours in front of a computer screen, or maybe because dryness is a constant companion, red eyes are not only painful in some cases but also unattractive. First apply a clean towel which has been wet with cool water over your eyes. This will help hydrate your eyes and give them a brief rest.

To follow up, prepare a cup of green tea. In a cup of warm water place two green tea bags, which contain antioxidants and vitamin C. These two properties help activate blood circulation, which helps remove the red appearance of veins and vessels in your eyes caused by inflammation. Once the tea is brewed, place it in the refrigerator, including the tea bags to cool. Place each tea bag over your eyes, holding them closed for at least a half hour.

5. Crow’s feet remedies

Crow’s feet, or tiny wrinkles along the outer edge of your eyes, are a symptom of age. Most women attempt to cover their appearance with makeup. But with a simpler remedy you can rehydrate those contours and reduce their appearance while improving skin elasticity. You’ll need to apply this remedy every day to get the most out of its nutrients and vitamins and help hide those wrinkles.

So what do you need? Simply aloe vera and cucumbers. Each night separate a tablespoon of aloe vera gel and separate two slices of cucumber. Mix them or blend them until they create smooth paste. Apply to the outer edges of your eyes and let stand for at least 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. You’ll soon begin to see results.
