Fast fixes for dark circles and under-eye puff:
Tea Bags To The Rescue!
For dark circles, the caffeine in green or black tea is known to narrow blood vessels and reduce black colouring. Steep two tea bags (green or black), squeeze excess water, and chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before placing over your eyes for 15 minutes or more.
Coffee Ice Cubes
Try this caffeine fix for the skin; keep some coffee ice cubes in your freezer. Spend a few minutes gently rubbing an ice cube under your eyes, along your brows, across the bridge of your nose, and from the outer corners of your eyes to your temples. This can calm blotchiness or swelling.
Cut A Few Cucumber Pieces
You’ll need two half-inch-thick cucumber slices from the fridge. Cucumbers are high in vitamin C and folic acid; place over your eye for 15 minutes; this helps constrict blood vessels and reduce colouring.
Give Your Eyes A Tap Massage
By tapping your index and middle fingers in a gentle circle around your sockets and across your brows and cheekbones, this may even skin tone and reduce inflammation. Do this massage gently with an eye cream for 30 seconds.
Grab The Colour-Correcting Concealer
When your boss texts you about an important meeting and you want to look natural, bright and fresh next morning, what do you do? A little color-correcting concealer can get the job done.
