Hey Guys Morgan here, it’s been a while but I am super excited to share some fun beauty stuff with you all. You can check out some of my past posts here:
Skin Brightening Toner
Lavender Facial Steam
Today I have some great eye cooling pads for you. If you are anything like me all it takes is one semi salty meal to wake up with puffy swollen eyes in the morning. This is a great DIY treatment to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and help to smooth out those fine lines (that become less fine each day)
It can all be done with a few (3) simple things almost anyone would have on hand.
- Cucumber (fresh, peeled, and sliced)
- Basil (fresh or dried a good handful)
- Cotton rounds
Natural ingredients have a lot of qualities that can help your skin look and feel great, and many can be found right in your kitchen. Why these ingredients?
- Fades dark circles
- reduces puffiness in skin
- helps to relieve eye strain
- Prevents swelling
- skin rejuvenator
- helps reduce the appearance of fine lines.
In a blender or food processor blend the cucumber and basil, add a tablespoon of water if needed or desired to help get things moving. Dip cotton rounds into the blended mix.
Squeeze off excess.
Place pads (1 on each eye) Lay back and relax for 10-30 min (or whatever time life provides for you)
Store extra mix in an air tight container and place in fridge. It should keep for a week (or longer), discard if the color or odor changes. Dip a cotton round in the mix and apply to eyes whenever needed throughout the week.
