Out of the innumerable reasons behind you getting dark circles or under eye bags, binge watching on a series all night long can also be one. But of course nothing is going to stop you from doing that especially when the series is as intense as it can get. Hence, there are ways in which you can reduce these under eye bags the next morning and you must definitely try doing at least that much for your eyes. You know what we're about to suggest? Coffee. And before you get excited about us asking you to drink coffee, nope, we're not. We're simply asking you to use coffee as an eye mask on a daily basis and you'll see the results pretty soon.
- Coffee and coconut oil: Mix some coffee powder with coconut oil and apply it under you eyes for 15 minutes before you rinse it off with cold water. This will help lighten the dark circles, tighten and smoothen the skin under your eyes. All you need is one tablespoon coffee powder and half a tablespoon of black pepper and coconut oil along with a few drops of water.
- Coffee and honey: This one is regarded as one of the most instant solutions as compared to any other makeup hack. Coffee has a natural bleaching agent present in it that helps in lightening the dark spots under your eyes. On the other hand, honey helps in moisturizing the area around your eyes. Mix one tablespoon of grounded coffee with one teaspoon of honey and a few drops of vitamin E oil in it. You can let this paste sit under your eyes for at least 15 minutes before you wash it off.
- Coffee and avocado oil: Avocado, as you all must already know works well for nourishing the skin and coffee cares best for dark circles and under eye bags. You can make a serum out of the two by adding half a cup of grounded coffee to a jar with some almond oil added to it. Let the mixture sit for 4 to 5 days to infuse. Now, strain the infused oil and mix one tablespoon of avocado oil in it. You can now apply this mixture every night before going to bed. Give it a month and you'll start seeing great results.
So apart from a few good things that consuming coffee can do to you, applying coffee in these three ways can save you from looking like a zombie every other morning. Majority of us suffer from under eye bags and dark circle issues and if you don't wish to spend a lot on buying expensive products, you can simply switch to coffee masks and start seeing the results after dedicatedly following the routine.
