Instant Dark Circle Eraser
- cucumber slices
- Slice up cucumbers and place them in a Ziploc bag.
- Put the bag in the freezer and let it sit overnight.
- The next day, take out a couple of frozen cucumber slices and place them over closed eyes.
- Lay back and let them do their than for 15-20 minutes. Listen to some relaxing music!
The sensation of the frozen cucumber slices on your eyelids will feel super refreshing and will also wake you up! Take a before and after picture of your eyes and you’ll see the difference right after! I like to do this trick every night not only because it instantly gets rid of my dark circles, but also because I get 15-20 minutes to myself where I can just close my eyes and relax. I also like to do some breathing exercises, so think of this as a sort of meditation time as well!
Why This Works:
Cucumbers have long been used to treat dark circles and that’s because of their water content. Placing cucumber slices on your eyes will de-puff and moisturize the area, lightening the skin underneath. The cold part “shocks” the skin into retaining moisture (hot water dries out skin), reduces pore size, and therefore reduces the darkness that’s found underneath the eye area.
Try this remedy as often as you can, but even if you do this once you’ll instantly notice a difference!
