At the same time, coffee stimulates te circulation in the applied area and has antioxidant properties that helps in the anti-aging process -of not having winkles just yet-
Tip #2: Raw Potato Slices
Cucumber slices are the best known practice for puffy eyes but, did you know that potato slices stay cool longer than cucumbers? Thats right! and they have astringent properties as well.
Tip #3: Got Milk?
Milk contains lactic acid and it helps in the process of increasing skin firmness. A lot of DIY recipes for home made masks contains milk, but you can simply dip a cotton into cold milk and place on each of your eyes closed for around 10 min at least.
Tip# 4: Egg Whites!This is an ancient remedy -for real- and so easy to execute! Just beat up an egg white and apply it with your fingers under the eyes (use your ring finger kindly), and let it dry. By leaving it 10-15 min you'll help tone and tighten your skin.
