Between hectic schedules, deadlines, our social lives and everything else in between, it feels like we can never get enough number of hours to shut eyes and get some good sleep. This often results to red, puffy and swollen eyes, as well as eye bags that can rival a designer label. Here are a few tips and products for when it feels like you just can’t keep your eyes open and look awake enough to face the world anymore but also don’t have enough time for a week- (or year) long vacation.
PAMPER WITH CUCUMBER
Yes, cucumber slices on eyes really do work. Before going to bed, put some soft music on lie down and cover your eyes with cucumber slices. They really work well to soothe puffy eyes and make them look more fresh and awake in the morning, even if you don’t get the desired 6 to 8 hours of sleep.
CASTOR OIL FOR MAKEUP REMOVER
Aside from working as an excellent eye makeup remover (the most stubborn mascara and eyeliner just glides off), castor oil does wonders on the skin around the eyes, keeping it, as well as the eyelashes and eyebrows, conditioned and moisturized. Remember to apply it using cotton in a gentle manner; never pull or drag. It’s also a must to remove makeup before hitting the sack.
USE A MASCARA WITH SOFT AND SAFE INGREDIENTS
Mascara is often called a girl’s best friend for a reason. They help make your eyes look more awake and less tired with just a few brush strokes. The challenge now is finding one with high-quality natural ingredients so you won’t have to worry about irritating your eyes, without forgoing quality. (Check out: Infinity 3D Fiber Lash Mascara)
