Eye Care: Home Remedies

Last time, I talked about eye care. Today, I would like to talk to you about some home remedies which can help us combat problems like dark circles, puffy eyes and wrinkles.

Dark Circles. 
  • Place chilled slices of cucumber or Apple on your eyes and relax for 10-15 minutes. Do this daily and you will see results in a week or two.
  • Apply chilled tea bags or cotton balls to your eyes. They also work in same way.
  • Place chilled inverted tea spoons on your eyes.
  • Saturate cotton balls with chilled milk and place them on your eyes. Milk provides relief to your eyes, helps in lightening the color and cleanses the eye area gently.
  • Apply herbal tea (green tea preferably) on your eye area with cotton balls. This would also clean your eyes.
Puffy Eyes.
  • Apply warm tea bags on your eyes.
  • Put a slice of freshly cut fig on your eye bags and see them disappear magically.
  • Slice of potato also works beautifully on puffy eyes.
  • Cold compresses are good.
  • Put a thin layer of egg white under your eyes to remove the wrinkles.
  • Pure castor oil prevents formation of wrinkles.
  • Massage pure coconut oil gently on the area having wrinkles at bed time.
  • Mix turmeric with sugarcane juice and apply to prevent wrinkles and slow aging.
  • Rub a slice of pineapple or green apple on your wrinkles.
  • Mix lemon juice with honey and apply several times a day to fade away wrinkles.

    Lemon Juice is a strong acidic agent with PH value of 2.Its direct usage on skin or hair is never recommended even periodically.Since its nature is acidic it may act as a bleaching agent and give skin some lightening effect,it but also makes skin more sensitive to photo damage hence increasing chances of deeper UV penetration.Lemon and venigar also robs skin of natural oil (sebum) making it more dry.And with the progress of age as it is our skin experiences a reduced sebum production.Hence be careful while using harsh natural ingredients. Although things like milk and sugar cane are very good for skin as milk contains lactic acid and sugar cane has glycolic acid (milder acid forms) both used estheticaly aswell as clinicly by doctors & cosmetic companies world over.

    Hi Zahra

    Actually thanks for pointing out. I forgot to edit that lemon juice with honey should be used. This way honey also helps in fading the wrinkles. Yes, lemon juice should be used only at night for face mask purposes. I have already pointed that in lemon juice benefits post of mine.
