Hi there. Dark circles under the eyes and those under eye bags ruins a person’s look like nothing else. These can make one look a lot older. Though the best way to cure these problems is lead a disciplined life, doing so may not be always possible. So if you are under a lot of stress, working or partying late hours and suffer from under eye dark circles and puffy bags this post is for you.
Cucumber is a proven cure for these problems. However keeping them handy for a beauty uplift can be bothersome. DIY Cucumber Eye Pads are a perfet way to ensure you have these pads when you need them. So lets get started.
You Will Need
- A blender or juicer
- 3-4 Cucumbers
- Clean water. Mineral or RO water will do.
- Cotton pads. You can get these at a medical store
How to Make Cucumber Eye Pads
Wash the cucumbers with a warm mix of vinegar and water. This will get rid of microbes that thrive on our vegetables. Clean thoroughly as you don’t want your cucumber eye pads to contain chemicals (remember the Satyamev Jayate episode on food contamination ). Anyway, after you have done all this put the cucumbers in a blender and make some cucumber juice. Then mix the juice in a cup of water.
Now completly soak the cotton pads in cucumber water mix. Squeeze our excess water by pressing the pad between palms. Cucumber has hydrating effect second to none! Ans that’s it your cucumber eye pads are ready. Put the pads in a plastic pouch and store them in the freezer. They should remain good for a long time – a month at least (given the grid does not fail).
How To ApplyTake out a couple of these pads from the freezer and place. Thaw them for about 15 minutes and place them on your eyes. Keep them on for about 15 minutes. Take them off and wash your face with cold water. Cucumbers are a rich source of Vitamin K which shrink blood capillaries and reduce dark circles and puffiness. They also soothe your eyes after a long day in front of a computer.
Say bye bye to under eye dark circles and puffiness.
Stay beautiful girls.
