Leftover: Raw Cucumbers
DIY Recipe: Soothing Cucumber Eye Mask
Not only do cucumbers have an instant cooling effect (they're 90% water), but they also contain an enzyme that reduces inflammation, making them a stellar remedy for eye bags, says Wendy Allred, education manager at Bliss Spas.
What You'll Need:
A chilled cucumber straight from the refrigerator.
Method and Application:
Cut a few slices, around a quarter-inch thick, and put one on each eye. Or you can chop them up and roll the pieces into a paper-towel eye pack. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, and feel free to swap out the slices or pack for a cooler, fresh one along the way.
