When we discuss our skin-care routine with our friends and family, how often do we talk about our under-eye bags, puffiness or dark circles? We spend so much money and effort on our skin and hair, but forget one of the most important and visible areas on our face i.e. our eyes. Whether you like it or not, the first signs of ageing appear near our eyes and if we continue to ignore it, it becomes extremely difficult to look after them once the area is affected.
The under-eye region on our face is extremely thin and delicate as compared to the skin on other parts of our body. Therefore, an under-eye cream is very essential and a much needed addition to our skin-care routine. And now, you don’t even have to go to the salon to get your under-eye treatments. You can easily make your own under-eye creams at home.
Cucumber and Mint under-eye cream
The combination of a cucumber and mint works wonders on our dark circles and under-eye bags. While cucumbers are rich in Vitamin K and help reduce the dark circles around our eyes, mint helps to soothe the area with its antioxidant properties. All you need to do is, blend the two ingredients thoroughly and add 3 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel and 3 drops almond oil. Form a paste and apply it under your eyes. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off.
