Homemade Skincare Recipe for Bags Under Eyes

by Nathalie

Slices of raw potato placed on your eyes instead of cucumber! Honestly its great! I sometimes put them in the fridge before hand to get them nice and cool. Great if you suffer from hay fever too! x

Thanks so much, this is a great suggestion and very affordable too, as potatoes are often less expensive than cucumbers, and available year round.

There are also a wonderful facial exercise for bags under the eyes. Here are two that I use:

1. Lying down, place the index and middle finger of each hand on either side of each of your eyelids. Then, flex the muscles of your lower eyelids 10 times.

2. Lying down, place 4 fingers of each hand on the cheekbones right under your eyelids. Gently pull down slightly towards your chin, without putting pressure on your eyes. Do this 10 times.

These are exercises for bags under the eyes from the facial exercise program that I use. Do you have other affordable, natural ways to reduce bags under the eyes?

I will try those exercises ! Thank you! Yes I have another excellent tip which is to use normal tea bags. after you have used them to make a cup of tea, pop them in the fridge for a bit until nice and cool. Lay down and relax and pop em on your eyes. Absolutely brilliant. I have even converted a very skeptical male friend to using them . He was really pleasantly surprised that it works!
