Beautiful eyes need not always be large or almond shaped. As they say, the inner beauty of a person’s soul shines through their eyes. Make-up can help women enhance the beauty of their eyes but they cannot disguise dull lustreless eyes. According to experts, natural sparkling eyes signify good health while tired, blood shot eyes indicate fatigue and stress. To own eyes that sparkle with health and beauty take adequate rest and try out these simple home remedies:
Cucumber slices treatment
Cut a few thick slices of cucumber and refrigerate it for 15 to 20 minutes. Put these slices over your eyes for 15 to 20 minutes and relax. Wash your eyes with water after this treatment and repeat if eyes still look tired. This remedy will reduce puffiness around tired eyes and make them shiny and bright.
Soak cotton balls in rose water and refrigerate them until they are cool. Close your eyes and keep these cool cotton balls over eyelids for 15 to 20 minutes. Wipe your eyes with the soaked cotton balls after treatment and wash them with water.
Tea bag treatment
Both green and black tea bags are very good for comforting tired eyes as they contain bioflavonoids. These reduce swelling and puffiness around tired eyes and make them look shiny and bright. For this treatment you will need used tea bags that have been cooled in the fridge for 15-20 minutes and a few drops of olive oil. After applying olive oil around the eyes without touching the eyelashes keep a bag of cold tea bags each over the eyes and relax for 15-20 minutes until the bags become warm.
Apple juice treatment
Soak a couple of cotton pads in pure apple juice and cool them for minimum 15 minutes to drain out excess juice. Keep them over closed eyelids and relax for 10 – 15 minutes to keep your eyes shiny and free of wrinkles.
