Not long ago I turned thirty, and on this milestone of a birthday I made a few decisions. One of them being to really start taking care of my body, I am currently spending six months dropping the extra pounds I have gained, detoxing my body of toxins, and putting only good wholesome items in my body. (Involving being t-total for the rest of 2014) I am pretty lucky that the signs of age haven't crept up on me too badly (I am lucky as I partied HARD in my twenties!) however I wanted to see what I could do naturally to stop the wrinkles from showing (primarily on my eyes) Here is what I found!
Reduce fine lines and crows feet.
What you need: Cotton Balls and Grapes
If anything is really changing I have noticed lately that my eyes are looking a little aged. Every time I look in the mirror I see small crow’s feet, faint dark circles, and sometimes they are a little puffy. I’m not one to spend a lot of money on beauty products because you never know if they will actually work, and when I read the ingredients most of them time, they’re full of nutrients that come from natural products. I decided I would try out some free and low cost remedies before I dive into the more expensive items.
Grapes contain antioxidants that act like a natural peel which help to diminish wrinkles over time.
- Mash a handful of grapes to obtain the juice.
- Use a cotton ball to apply the grape juice to fine lines around the eyes. Rinse after 5 minutes. Repeat 2-3 times a week for best results.
What you need: Egg whites and a make up brush.
To reduce puffy eyes, egg whites are not just a good food for your body, they are also great for your eyes, too.
- Beat the whites from an egg until stiff.
- Use a brush to apply the egg whites to puffy eyes. Let dry for 15 minutes then rinse.
