DIY Cucumber, Green tea & Chamomile Eye Patches | De-Puffing & Cooling

I’ve noticed so many people on social media using all sorts of under-eye patches in their everyday beauty regime. Undereye skin is very thin and sensitive and puffiness, dark circles or dehydration are a very common thing for a lot of people. Also, wrinkles tend to appear first around the eye area.

So I wanted to try them out too, but…

The ones that you have in beauty stores can be quite expensive, considering that you want to use them quite often. In addition, they are probably full of chemicals and perfumes that we don’t even want to use on our skin, especially around the eye area! And natural ones tend to be the most expensive out of all of them!

But you can make very natural, effective and cheap eye patches easily at home yourself! Keep reading…

Ingredients:

  • A small piece of cucumber (with the skin)
  • Green tea
  • Chamomile tea
  • Cotton Pads

Instructions:

1.Brew about a quarter or even less cup of green and chamomile tea.

2.Blend the cucumber and cooled tea together until you get a smooth consistency. Pour it out into a wide bowl.

3.Cut the cotton pads into halves and soak them in the cucumber-tea liquid.

 

4.Gently squeeze the excess liquid out, but not too much. We want them to be still pretty moist to get all of the benefits of the tea and cucumber.

5.Spread them out in one or more layer into a container and cover them with a lid. Keep them in the refrigerator for a couple of days until you use them up! You could put them in the freezer to keep them fresh for longer, but then I suggest to spread them out in a single layer only. If you take them out from the freezer, they will be like ice cubes at first, but after a little time, they will become softer again and more ready to use.

 

I keep them under my eyes up to 30 min! They feel so good and they smell like a fresh cucumber!

ENJOY!
