Surprisingly, yes – as long as you know what to expect!
If you are in your early 30’s or late 20’s, then you must have noticed some severe changes in your skin texture. Not only is our skin drier than before, but we also witness signs of dark circles and under-eye puffiness. I’ve always neglected the under-eye area of my face while following the skincare routine, but I think it’s time to bring a change because it’s never too late to try!
Here are a few DIY eye masks to take care of the under-eye area:
Coffee Mask: Coffee has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-ageing properties. Thus, it helps in minimizing dark spots and circles.
Application- To make a coffee mask, cut organic cotton rounds in half and saturate them in 1 teaspoon of strong coffee. Place them in the fridge, let them cool, then place the cotton rounds directly onto your skin.
Cucumber Mask– Cucumber is excellent for the eyes. Though cucumber doesn’t have any anti-ageing properties, it will help tighten, soften, and smoothen your skin. It’s a refreshment for tired eyes.
Application- Cut, a cucumber, seep it in water and then soak cotton pads in it. Place the cotton pads on your eyes and relax while you take a bath.
Green Tea Mask– One of the most popular skincare ingredients is Green Tea. It prevents and reverses wrinkle lines from your face. Green tea has a powerful group of antioxidants that protect skin against UV damage that causes wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
Application- To make a green tea mask, soak cotton buds in one teaspoon of strong Green tea and place it in the freezer. Apply the cold cotton buds for a few minutes and relax. You may also use either white Tea or Black Tea.
Cherry Mask: We all know cherries are loaded with Vitamin C. It has antioxidant properties and ability to brighten up your skin.
