Bring Down Puffy Eyes With This Cucumber and Tea DIY

May 11 2014 - 6:03am

Puffy eyes are a serious drag, even making it harder to get eye makeup to apply nicely. And while the old standby of tossing cucumber slices or tea bags on your eyes will help, why not go with a mask that combines both at once with some anti-inflammatory ingredients added in for good measure?

How to Do It

Step 1: Steep chamomile tea in boiling water, and set aside until cooled.

Step 2: Blend together one tablespoon aloe vera gel, two teaspoons peeled and seeded cucumber, and 1/2 teaspoon honey in a blender or food processor.

Step 3: Add 1/2 teaspoon chamomile tea, and blend until smooth.

Step 4: Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes or as needed, and rinse thoroughly.

Each batch makes four treatments and can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
