The skin around the eyes is very delicate and the place where wrinkles first appear. This is why it should be carefully tended. Below are a few easy recipes to help you with that.
Homemade masks
It is good to give your eyes a raw-potato mask once or twice a week. Wash potato, peel and wash again. Then shred it and place shreds on small pieces of gauze over the eyes. Remove after 10-15 minutes.
Cut in circles potato or cucumber cooled in the refrigerator. Place circles on the eyes and replace them with new ones as soon as they warm up. Keep doing this for 20-30 minutes.
Finely chop fresh parsley and place over eyelids. Cover with moist cotton balls or pieces of gauze and leave for 15 minutes.
Another good mask is to shred raw potato and mix it with two teaspoons of milk and two teaspoons of flour. Place on a piece of gauze over the eyes.
Or you can use one teaspoon of finely chopped parsley mixed with 2 teaspoons of sour cream.
If applied regularly for a month, the following mask removes wrinkles and fights the formation of new ones:
Dip a piece of fresh white bread (without the crust) in warm milk to form a puree-like substance. Place over the eyelids and keep for 10-15 minutes.
Lotions for the eye area
Steam malt one teaspoon of lanolin. Add 3 teaspoons of almond oil. Remove from heat and immediately add 1 teaspoon of lecithin powder and slowly drip two tablespoons of cold water. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
Add 10ml linden blossom and chamomile brew, and 5ml of castor oil to any nourishing cream. Stir carefully. Apply every morning and evening with a cotton ball dipped in linden blossom and chamomile brew.
