    • Remove Dark Circles under Eyes

      remove dark circules 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.

      Re: How do you clean a cast iron pot?

      Actually I find the best thing is to just leave them dirty and not clean them till you're just about to use them. Especially if you used them for something greasy. I never ever use soap of any kind...

      Re: How to hang necklaces, rings and jewelry.

      Hang a bit of ribbon from a tack and put the earrings through it, or put a saucer where you remove them - saucer works for rings too.
