You’ve probably already heard the expression “your eyes are the windows to your soul.”
This phrase is actually quite true, because our eyes show our uniqueness, our feelings, and our desires at any given moment.
We can also tell whether or not a person is taking care of themselves by looking at their eyes.
When we don’t get enough sleep or don’t rest our eyes after hours of working in front of the computer, our eyes may become puffy, or dark circles may appear.
These dark circles are caused by light reflecting off of the veins found right underneath the thin, delicate skin beneath our eyes.
Instead of spending lots of money on expensive products from pharmacies, try using natural ingredients to cure your dark circles.
An ingredient that is great at helping with this problem is turmeric, a plant with strong anti-inflammatory properties that can lighten the coloring of your skin and help with swelling around your eyes.
Furthermore, turmeric improves circulation to these tiny veins, making the skin around your eyes look better overall.
Another great ingredient for this problem is honey. Honey hydrates and lightens the skin around your eyes, making you look healthier.
Here’s how to use these two ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon of powdered turmeric;
- 1 tablespoon of honey.
Mix the turmeric with the honey until they form a paste;
Apply this mixture all around your eyes and let it sit for 10 minutes;
After the time is up remove the mixture with warm water.
The best time to apply this mask is at night.
Be careful because turmeric can stain. If it stains your skin, you can get it out using coconut or castor oil.
In order to guarantee that your skin will react well to these ingredients, perform an allergy test before applying them.
First, place a small amount on your arm and make sure you do not have an allergic reaction.
