• Remove Dark Circles under Eyes

    Does anyone here have rabbits for pets?-tiredeyes1.jpg It only takes a couple of long days at work (or really busy weekends) to takes it toll and leaves Dark Circles under the eyes. If you're thinking of heading off to work or out for the evening, here's a quick pick me up fix that will instantly lighten those dark circles and reduce the puffy bags!
    Dark circles under the eyes are caused by a number of various things including lack of sleep, depression, recent illness, poor diet, age and many more. The fact is that all of us at one time or another will have to deal with this issue. Here's a simple remedy:

    You'll Need:
    1 Fresh Potato, scrubbed clean

    Grate the potato into a small square of cheesecloth. Wrap it gently, allowing the juice to remain in the potato. Repeat the process to make a second square. Sit back, put your feet up and Apply the packs to the eyelids for 15-20 minutes, relax!

    When your time is up wash off any residue. Now for the science behind it- Potatoes contain a natural chemical compound called catecholase, which incidentally is often found in expensive cosmetics, and naturally lightens and tightens skin.

    Be sure to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest to keep dark circles from getting worse (or from developing in the first place!)

      this also works well at relieving eyes from welding flash. you need to leave it on your eyes for as long as possible- over night is best - and use a wet rag.

      You can also take a potato, clean it, slice it up and put a few slices in a bowl of water and leave it in the fridge for 15-20 mins I believe, then you take the slices and place over your eyes and just relax for a while. This method works great for an at home spa day! Just make your favorite facial mask, and foot soak (or if you want to relax in a nice hot bath you can do so, it is a spa day at home after all), get everything ready, apply mask place potato slices, and RELAX! Which this all reminds me... I need to schedule me a spa day
