Most of us have a hard daily routine to balance.  From work or school, sometimes both, to living our day-to-day lives.  sometimes sleep gets a second or even third hand treatment and we get left with those big unruly zombie like dark circles beneath our eyes. Luckily I’ve got just the thing.

I’ve past and mixed several formulas and am 100 percent with the final result and i thought I’ll share my DYI and night treatment to get read of those big panda eyes. This helps get rid of them Brilliantly and the best part about it is that its extremely cheap to make. You might even already have all the ingredients in your home.

For the DIY Treatment you’ll need

5 Tbs Rose Water

1 Cucumber

1 Handful of fresh Mint Leaves

1/2 Pack of Cotton Pads

1 Flat Container

Blender or Juicer

5 Tbs Water (Optional – use If you don’t have a juicer)

And that’s it, your ready to go! Both Rose Water and Mint leaves have amazing cooling and brightening effect and the cu really help depuff the eyes after a bad nights sleep.

Simply mix everything together in a power blander or juicer. If you don’t have a power blender you can try add 5 Tbs of water and mix it in a regular one. It doesn’t need to be drinkable so that’s ok. Than arrange all the cotton pads in a container and soak them with the juice. Close the container and keep in the fridge for at least 2 hours before use for that cooling effect.

Take the cotton pad and just put it straight on your eyes just after you wash your face in the morning or whenever you feel the need and leave it on for at least 5 minutes to soak in. If you want to step it up a notch add 5 Tbs of Green tea instead of the water for an extra relaxing effect.

For an Overnight Treatment

Sweet Almond Oil and a clean face.

Simply message your undereye area for a 2-3  minutes with a couple of drops of Sweet Almond Oil, leave it as is and go to sleep. I’ve been doing this for more than two months now and this stuff is seriously the best. Sweet Almond Oil is very rich in vitamins and is amazing for moisturizing, brightening and even Anti Aging. Try doing this every night and after two weeks youll see serious improvements.

Just be aware of one thing,  Dark Circles can also be a result of severe allergies or malnutrition. If you suffer from any of those no eye cream, not even the best DIY treatment can fix it. This works wonders but it is not a miracle worker. If your dark circles are a result of a health problem better treat that one first.

Good Bye Panda Eye! 🙂
