An eyelash curler will open your eyes up like you won’t believe!  An eyelash curler is easy to use and it makes your lashes appear more luxurious even if you don’t wear mascara.  When lashes are very straight or grow downward, they can be curled with an eye lash curler.  Here’s how to use an eyelash curler:

 

1. Make sure eyelashes are free of mascara.

 

2. The eyelash curler must be positioned gently on the top lashes.

 

3. Clamp lashes near the roots. Hold for 20-30 seconds.

(If lashes are not curled enough, the movement can be repeated several times)

 

 

4.  Mascara is applied after lashes are curled.

 

 

Tip:  Heating your eyelash curler with a blow-dryer on low heat,  for no more than 5 seconds before curling your lashes can give then a more defined look.  Be sure to test the temperature before curling, you don’t want to burn yourself.

Are your eyelashes an after thought?  I bet you didn’t know that nourishing your lashes can be simple.  To keep your lashes from becoming brittle, gently dab a bit of eye cream on your lashes before bed to keep them soft and supple.  For those who prefer the all natural way, apply olive oil or vitamin E to eyelashes and wash it off in the morning.  These few old tricks will strengthen and encourage your lashes to grow.  Who doesn’t love long full lashes?

10 Simple Home Remedies to Diminish Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes

10 Simple Home Remedies to Diminish Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes

The presence of dark circles under your eyes can make you look tired and older. Don’t look tired even if you feel it!   Reducing the dark circles under your eyes can often be achieved with a few  simple home remedies. With a few of these easy steps you can learn how to minimize dark circles or puffy eyes:

1.  Get your beauty sleep!

Get plenty of sleep each night.

2.  Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day.

Yet another benefit of that daily chug of  the high quality h20 is dark circle reduction.

3.  Wrap a bag of frozen vegetables in a thin towel and place it over your eyes for 10 minutes.

It not only de-puffs, it rejuvenates and feels great!

4.  Eat well.

Eat a healthy balanced diet. Don’t forget to take your vitamins daily.

5.  Cucumber slices have long been used to reduce puffiness and refresh the appearance of skin around the eyes.

They also provide a fast “pick-me-up” for tired and puffy eyes.  Just a couple of ice cold slices on your eyes will help diminish puffiness and tighten and tone the under eye area.

6.  Chamomile tea bags.

Soak some chamomile tea bags in hot water, then rinse in cool water to create an eye-pack. Just putting these on your eyes for about 20 minutes will help reduce puffiness and can help diminish dark circles quickly, since chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties.

7.  Use a frozen spoon.

Put a spoon in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Take it out and cover the circles with it. Hold it there until the spoon is warm again.

8.  Lie down, close your eyes and apply potato slices to your lids.

Leave on for ten minutes and remove. Wash the area with cold water. This soothes tired eyes instantly, and helps boost blood circulation in the under-eye area.

9.  Drink a Gatorade or sports drink with electrolytes.

The electrolytes helps to deflate puffiness.

10.  Dip a washcloth in a bowl of cool caffeinated coffee.

Apply to area and leave on for ten minutes.  Caffeine is a diuretic, which means it draws water away.

 

**Tip: High salt intake, alcohol and drugs can adversely affect the quality of your sleep. Abstain from these products or use them only in moderation for best results.
