3 Handy Home Remedy Tips To Get Rid of Eye Bags

Eye Bags be gone!

Eye bags happen for 2 reasons:
1. Not getting enough sleep
2. Aging

Fortunately we can reduce the appearance of eye bags and here I’m going to share with you the 3 handy home remedies which I find it effective:

1. Cucumbers

Slice the chilled cucumbers  and place it on your eyes for half an hour. Cucumbers are one of the most natural remedies to reduce puffiness of your eyes. Tip: You can just leave it on while taking a nap!

2.  Green Tea bags

Green tea are well known as an anti oxidant and the natural properties of these green teas will help to bring puffy eyes back to their original size. First you have to pour warm water and let it settle down for 10 mins. After that, place the chilled green tea bag over your eyes and relax.

3. Ice

Ice, ice baby! One of the most easy, fast and simple trick. Another trick is you can also leave the metal spoon in the fridge! Same method, you can place the spoon over your eyes for 2 mins. As for the ice, you can place it on your eye bags and roll it in circular motion. Or if you don’t want it to drip all over the place, simply place it in a small towel and rest them over your eyes.

The 3 methods above helps to reduce your eye bags, but it does not stop you from aging. We still have to rely on a good eye product, that can help us to reduce the fine lines around our eyes. For this, I use eye serum and eye gel. You can see from my previous post on what I bought on BodyShop online here.

BodyShop_Eye_Gel

BodyShop ElderFlower Eye Gel – Cooling and soothes your eye bags area. I would normally apply this before I apply my concealer. This is my all time favourite eye gel.

BodyShop_Eye_Serum

BodyShop Moisture White Shiso Eye Serum – An anti oxidant moisturising serum that helps to brighten up your eye bags area. In other words, it helps to reduce the dark spots that appears under your eyes. And after using this product for 2 weeks, I noticed my eye bags are getting brighter.

Last but not least, make sure you get an adequate amount of sleep and drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrate all the time.

Water itself helps to eliminate fat cells, flush out the unwanted toxins, keep us dehydrate, boost your metabolism and beats bad breath. You can read my post here.

I used to not like celery because of its smell. So, I take it with my juice: I will mix celery with cucumber and green apples. Celery and cucumber contains a lot of water thus, it helps in digestion as well. If you don’t like to take celery just like that, then just mix it with other juices and down it! Plus celery has a high level of antioxidants, which is helps to beat bad radicals and promotes anti-aging.

3. Banana

Banana a good source prebiotic fiber, which helps to feed good bacteria and improve digestive health. They are also have rich potassium, which in addition to helps to reduce blood pressure, supports body muscle and relieve water retention and bloating.

4. Yogurt

Yogurt contains “good bacteria”. It facilitates efficient digestion and prevention of bloated tummy. Go for low-fat or non-fat yogurt. The best is to take with plain yogurt, and add your own fruits in it, like strawberries and blueberries to add in natural sweetness. For lazy people like me, I always go for low-fat yogurt. (Hehe)
