OverviewWhether you have not gotten enough sleep the past few nights or you seem to look tired no matter how much sleep you’ve gotten, reducing the bags under your eyes can give your face a wake-up makeover naturally. If you are sick and have to show up to work anyway, or you spent the night partying and you don’t want your boss to know, reducing the bags under your eyes before work can make your face look fresh and rested. With a few natural items from around the house, your face can look refreshed and awake without having gotten any beauty rest whatsoever.Step 1Place a wet washcloth in the freezer before bed. Even if you are only going to get a few hours of sleep, remember to place a washcloth in the freezer–your eyes will thank you in the morning. When you wake up, take the washcloth out of the freezer, place it on your forehead and eyes and lie down. Leave the washcloth on for approximately five minutes.Step 2Place cold tea bags on your eyes. Rinse two new teabags in cold water for approximately 30 seconds. Place the tea bags over your closed eyes for approximately 10 minutes, then throw the tea bags away. The tea bags might stain your eyes, so wash your eyelids thoroughly with water after taking the tea bags off. The tannins in the tea bags will reduce swelling, and the moisture of the wet tea bag will absorb into your eyes.Step 3Apply cucumber slices to your eyes. After using the tea bags, give your eyes a zap of moisture by placing two slices of cucumber over your closed eyes. Cucumbers are high in water content and will soothe the bags under your eyes while they moisturize. Leave the cucumber on your eyes for 15 minutes, then throw the slices away.Step 4Apply aloe underneath your eyes. Before putting on makeup or any moisturizer, apply a small coating of fresh aloe to the bags under your eyes. Break a leaf from a fresh aloe plant, and remove some of the gel from inside. Using your fingers, gently rub the gel into the bags under your eyes until they are absorbed completely. Aloe is a natural source of moisture that will soothe and protect your eyes.Step 5Moisturize under your eyes. Use a moisturizer such as Leah Day Aloe Eye Gel to moisturize and protect your eyes throughout the day. Place a small amount of aloe eye gel on your pinkie and dab gently around your eyes. The gel will cool and moisturize your eyes all day and prevent the eye bags from returning.skill3ingredientWet washcloth
