(I'll probably post these about twice a month.)
If it's one you already know, then maybe you can laugh at how uninformed/unoriginal I am and then continue on with your daily life. If it's one you like (and had never heard of) — great! So glad I could help. And if you have one, leave it in the comment section or email me here: xosimplyR [AT] gmail [DOT] com and I'd be more than happy to post it here!
Does anyone else have really tired/puffy/awful looking eyes in the morning?
And for the longest time I didn't know how to cure it. Sure, concealer does the trick, but I'm not always into applying a bunch of makeup just to cover a dark circle that can be combated in other ways. Plus, I don't always wear makeup and so I like to have other [makeup-less] options.
All you need to do is freeze two spoons. I always, always keep two in my freezer. No matter what. In the morning upon waking up, walk to the kitchen and slap them over your closed eyeballs with the spoons facing outward. In other words: apply the spoons so that the rest of the world can see the side that you eat from. Does that make sense?
(Concentrate exclusively on the actual puffy/dark/tired section if you're only trying to get rid of the circles. Concentrate on the entire eye if you're using this tip as a I-need-some-energy-right-now tactic.)
I usually let them rest there for about 20 seconds and that does the trick. If I'm super tired sometimes it takes longer. Sometimes I even do it, leave, and then come back and do it again, but I'm telling you, this really works. Not to mention, the burst of energy it gives you. Seriously, try it. And let me know what you think.
Hope your weekends are filled with love! xo, R.
