How to Perk Up Eyes: 6 Quick Fixes
Need to know how to perk up eyes that always look tired? Here are some simple fixes to refresh your peepers-and you’ve likely got all of the ingredients you’ll need at home.
How to Perk Up Eyes #1: Avocado
Didn't get your beauty sleep? For many people, tiredness causes dark circles under the eyes that add years to the appearance. If you can't catch up on your rest, here's how to perk up eyes: Place slices of ripe avocado under each eye or apply a paste of ground almonds and milk to lighten the dark shadows.
How to Perk-Up Eyes #2: Tea
Caffeinated tea, which contains natural tannins, is a mild diuretic and long-used by grandmothers and runway models for reducing eye puffiness. How to perk up eyes: Soak two tea bags in warm water, and then chill the bags for a few minutes in the refrigerator. Place one tea bag on each eye for five minutes, and your eyes will look as though you got a solid eight hours of sleep.
How to Perk Up Eyes #3: Teething Rings
Here's a way how to perk up eyes that is child's play. Put two baby teething rings in the freezer until they're ice-cold, then lie down and place the rings on your closed eyelids for about 10 minutes. The cold will not only reduce eye puffiness but will invigorate you, too.
Easy Eye Perk-Up #4: Spoons
Take two metal teaspoons and hold them under very cold running water for a few minutes. Then lie down and place the bowls of the spoons over your eyelids for 30 to 60 seconds. The sharp cold of the metal will revive tired eyes and may boost your energy at the same time.
Easy Eye Perk-Up #6: Hemorrhoid Cream
Models and performers alike have been known to reduce tired eye puffiness and wrinkles with-believe it or not-hemorrhoid cream. If the odour of the cream is too strong, mix in a bit of your moisturizer before applying-and be careful not to get any of the cream in your eyes.
