EYE SOOTHERS The skin in the eye area is especially thin and sensitive, so it flares up fast when you're stressed and fatigued -- or surviving on a less-than-perfect diet. Natural remedies, though, can lessen redness or puffiness almost as quickly as it appears. Many remedies use simple ingredients that are already in your kitchen. Here are five of the most effective solutions.
DIY Brightening Skin Toner: 1/2 cup Lemon Juice, 1 cup Water, 2/3 cup Witch Hazel. To calm red, irritated skin, add a few drop of Lavender Essential Oil. (1) Cleanse skin. (2) Apply toner with cotton pad, sweeping upward and outward over face and neck. Do not rinse. (3) Apply sunscreen. *** Witch hazel tightens pores and reduces inflammation. Lemon juice reduces pores and lightens red/dark spots.
