How to Get Rid of Dark Circles and Bags Under Your Eyes
Bags and dark circles under eyes are not very easy to hide with makeup. But there are at-home beauty treatments that can easily solve your problem within a few minutes. Some will choose eye patches, others will prefer a simple massage.
At 5-Minute Crafts, we would like to share a few tricks with you that will help you to quickly get rid of dark circles and under-eye bags.
Eye patches made of gelatin, herbs, and oil
Pour 3.5 ounces of diluted edible gelatin into a bowl. Add a small amount of chopped mint and parsley, and a few drops of almond or coconut oil. Stir well and pour the mixture onto a piece of baking paper. Then put another sheet of paper on top, press down a little, and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes to let the gelatin set.
Remove the top sheet of paper and carefully cut out 2 semicircles from the resulting base with a knife. These semicircles should be big enough to cover the area under your eyes. Store the leftovers in the fridge for no more than 3 to 4 days.
Apply the self-made patches to the areas under your eyes and leave them on for 15 minutes. Then remove them with the help of a napkin.
Eye patches make the skin color smoother, and make the dark circles less visible. They also remove bags under the eyes.
Ice with banana and cucumber
Grate an unpeeled cucumber using a medium grater. Add half of a banana to it. Mash everything with a fork and stir to get a smooth mass. Put the mass into an ice cube tray. Place it in the freezer for 3 to 4 hours.
Take the ice cube, apply it to your problem zone, and slowly move it in a half-circle.
This treatment will make the thin skin around your eyes look fresh and healthy.
Press the skin under the end of your right brow with the fingers of your left hand. Pull the skin slightly toward the temples, and then tilt your head toward your left shoulder, pulling the skin up and back at the same time. Hold this position for a couple of seconds. Do this exercise several times, then repeat on the opposite side.
Eye patches made of aloe vera
Take a large aloe vera leaf, and slice it. Using nail scissors, remove the hard skin carefully, leaving only aloe vera pulp.
Use the aloe vera pulp as eye patches. If dark circles are your persistent problem, try using these patches in the evening (instead of the morning): apply these eye patches before bed for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wipe your face with a cotton pad.
