Dark under eye circles? Bruising and swelling? If you are struggling with signs of fatigue or other imperfections around the eyes, prepare your own soothing patches. Thanks to such treatment, your skin will be perfectly smooth and radiant again.
How to prepare under eye patches and serum?
To make soothing patches you will need: half a cup of water, chamomile, one teaspoon of agar, vitamin E and evening primrose oil. Put a bag of chamomile or a handful of dry leaves into a bowl with boiling water. When the herbal infusion is created, add your gelling agent – agar and blend it all very well. Pour the mix on a strip of paper used for hair removal. Wait for it to cool down and then, then cut out strips adjusted to the shape of your lower eyelids. Their shape should resemble collagen patches sold in drugstores.
Now prepare the serum which you will be applying on the patches. Combine half a teaspoon of vitamin E with the content of 5 capsules of evening primrose oil. Distribute the serum all over the internal part of the patches and put them into your fridge. Apply the patches under your eyes for 15 minutes. After this period of time take them off and just dab in the remains of the serum with your fingertips .
