But ladies. It doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to remove dark circles. And no, we are not talking about makeup to conceal your dark circles. You don’t need to spend the rest of your life looking like the ‘walking dead’.
There are several ways to treat these dark circles. So fret not, here’s what you can do!
Ingredients that you need to make this serum:
You can find several ingredients to use in your eye serum, but aloe vera is a great choice among them. It has cooling properties that help to de-puff eyes and reduce dark circles. Mixing it with rose water can refresh your skin and help calm tired eyes. Castor oil nourishes the area around the eyes and keeps it well hydrated. Almond oil, on the other hand, helps lighten the dark circles and brightens the skin. Lastly, vitamin E can do wonders to get rid of dark circles
1. Take one tablespoon of aloe vera gel in a bowl and mix it with rose water. Mix well to ensure that lumps are removed.
2. Once the ingredients are completely dissolved, slit the vitamin E capsules and stir the concoction well.
3. Now take all other ingredients: castor oil, sweet almond oil, and helichrysum essential oil and mix it well for the last time, until it becomes smooth.
Note: Ensure it doesn’t have any lumps, otherwise it can irritate your eyes.
4. Once all the ingredients have been dissolved and mixed well, transfer the serum to a clean serum bottle and store it in the fridge for a day. Post that, your eye serum is ready to be used.
Note: Place it in the refrigerator so that it doesn’t get spoiled.
Make sure you apply it after washing your face, so do that first.
Remember this serum has a short shelf life. It can be used for a maximum of 15 days. After that, you have to make a fresh batch. Don’t wait for more, prepare your own eye serum for a face free from dark circles.
