Under-eye bags are a very common issue which come with age and seem to be an inevitable part of the aging process. This issue makes people feel insecure and old, always on the lookout for the best solution for their problem. Why does this happen? Well, the normal fat that helps support the eyes sometimes moves into the lower eyelids, which causes the lids to appear puffy. Moreover, it could happen that fluids start accumulating in this area and make your eyes look swollen.
For everyone battling with this problem, I recommend the following natural remedy which is consisted of 4 amazing ingredients. The key ingredient in this recipe is Witch hazel, a plant extract which abounds in healing active ingredients beneficial against inflammation, cellular damage, swelling and wound soothing. Chamomile and lavender oil are the two essential oils which benefit the skin greatly, while aloe vera is pumped with anti-inflammatory properties.
Homemade Morning Eye Solution with Witch Hazel
- 1/2 ounce witch hazel extract
- 10 drops chamomile essential oil
- 1/2 ounce pure aloe vera gel
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
Take a small glass jar and combine the ingredients together, mixing them until you get a homogeneous gel. Store the jar in the fridge overnight.
When you wake up apply a small amount of this gel around the eyes and leave it on for as long as you can. Rinse your face and use a gentle face wash to remove any remaining gel. Apply your standard moisturizer and that’s it. Repeat the procedure every morning until you run out of the solution. If you feel like your eyes are still puffy prepare a new batch!
