Caring for your eyes

Eyes are a probably the most important part of the face. If you want your eyes to look beautiful, you have to care for them accordingly. The right type of care for the eyes and the skin around them will not only make them more beautiful, but it can also help you look younger. For the skin around the eyes use only products especially designed for that part of the face.
Don’t forget that the way you apply lotion to your skin is very important. The skin around the eyes is very delicate and can easily be stretched or bruised. When applying lotion to the upper lid, motion from the inner towards the outer corner of the eye. If you are treating the lower lid, begin from the inner and work toward the outer corner of the eye.
In the summer you can do special procedures for strengthening the skin around the eyes, but they are not suitable for winter, since they are preformed with water, which freezes in cold weather. So in the winter months apply rich nourishing lotion to the lids and around them. In the summer you can cleanse the skin in the morning and evening and then spray it with water, leaving it to evaporate on its own. Afterwards apply moisturizer.
If you have dark circles under the eyes you can get rid of them with a homemade parsley mask. Simply chop fresh parsley leaves and put them on the lower lid. Put a wet gauze or cotton ball on top of the mask and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse and apply lotion.
Cucumber and potato masks brighten the eyes. If you have puffy eyes you can easily deflate them with a homemade potato mask. Wash one potato without peeling it. Shred it as finely as possible. Mix 2 teaspoons of potato shreds with 2 tablespoons of flour and one tablespoon of milk. Place one tablespoon of the mixture on each eye and lay still, without moving or talking, for 20 minutes. Use this time to relax your body and mind. Rinse and follow up with a plentiful amount of lotion.
The coriander and cucumber mask is very good for improving blood circulation. Mix 2 teaspoons of finely chopped fresh coriander with the same amount of shredded cucumber and 1 tablespoon of sour cream. Apply on and around the eyes for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and follow up with moisturizing lotion.
