Don’t Even Blink: 8 Homemade Tricks for a Reinvigorated Look
- Sleep Having good sleep habits is an indispensable factor in looking rested. Try to sleep eight hours a day.
- Rosemary Before bed, boil water and add rosemary. Then place your face close to the container to benefit from the vapors. This plant has properties that help fight puffiness and lighten the skin, minimizing dark circles.
- Spoon Overnight, place two scoops in the freezer. Upon awakening, rest the spoons on your eyelids for approximately five minutes. The goal? Stimulate the skin and activate circulation.
- Massage with circular movements the area under your eyes to promote circulation and enhance the absorption of the active principles of specific products.
- Eye Makeup Remover Since this area is extremely delicate, you must remove the makeup with a specific product for this purpose to avoid rubbing the area too much and causing irreparable damage.
- Put your phone away When used to excess, blue-light devices such as cell phones or tablets minimize levels of melatonin, the chemical that induces sleep, which increases the risk of insomnia and results in a tired face.
- Green tea (or chamomile) Place the tea bags in the fridge overnight and apply them in the morning over the eyes region. To decongest, massage this area
- Potato Did you sleep poorly? Grate a potato and place it over your eyes for ten minutes. This has anti-inflammatory properties and will help to smooth out the puffiness.
Dark-circles: The secret of camouflage
1 Start with color correction. With a brush, apply apricot or yellow concealer over dark circles.
2 Then apply concealer to properly camouflage the dark circles.
- Apply your foundation and fix it with powder.
4 Surrender to highlighter. Apply it to the temples and the top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and the cupid arch of your lips. A bright face will hide dark circles and highlight your features.
5 Finally, apply a spray makeup fixer to ensure that dark circles remain concealed throughout the day.
