To keep eyes sparkling, there are several simple home recipes as described below:
(a) Grate half cucumber, strain it and keep in the fridge to cool. Take two pieces of cotton wool dipped in rose water and the cold cucumber juice, and place these on your eyes at least twice a day. You should lie down, and relax, and keep your mind free from tension, anxiety and worrying thoughts. Apart from relaxing your eyes, cucumber juice will lighten the darkened area around the eyes, especially when combined with lemon juice or lanolin cream.
(b) Prepare black tea (do not put milk) and allow it to cool. Soak cotton gauze in cold tea and use as eye pads.
(c) Crush mint and apply around eyes. This will take away the darkness around the eyes.
(d) Dip cotton wool in the solution of witch-hazel and use as eye-pads. This is very effective for reducing the puffiness of eyes.
