Learn a simple way to lighten the dark circles at home
After we’re past the age of 18, there’s no way around it: one sleepless night is enough, and the next morning you’ll be greeted with the dreaded dark circles.
These darkened spots below the eyes reveal that we are tired and leave us looking down and even half sad.
Worse still: sometimes you do not even have to be tired! It may be that you simply tend to have dark circles and are always with those purple spots that stand out on your face, giving an impression that is not so true about how you feel.
To make the recipe in your home, you will only need two simple ingredients that you should already have in your kitchen:
1 tablespoon of coffee grounds
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil.
Caffeine has an anti-inflammatory function, helping to soothe the skin, and is a noun that activates circulation, increasing blood flow. As a result, there is improvement in tissue oxygenation and elimination of toxins, which promotes smoothing of dark circles and bags of fat.
Olive oil and coconut oil, in turn, are ingredients that promote deep hydration in the region below the eyes, which has a very fine and delicate skin. Both are rich in antioxidants and form a protective layer that prevents water loss.
Now, separate the ingredients and see how easy it is to prepare and use this homemade recipe to do away with dark circles:
1. Mix the coffee grounds and olive oil or coconut oil in a bowl
2. Using your fingers, apply the paste in the dark circles
3. Massage with gentle movements so you do not hurt your skin
4. Wait 5 to 10 minutes and rinse
According to youtuber, she noticed an immediate softening in the coloration and the puffiness of dark circles under her eyes.
Remember, though, that this tip has a temporary effect. That way, you have to repeat the procedure once a week to continue clearing the spots, otherwise, they come back with everything!
