Illuminate tired travel eyes with these DIY remedies
– Summer skin never smelt (or tasted) so good –
: If all the summer travelling has left you feeling a little worse for wear, do not fear! Beauty brand FOREO is here to pick you up, and get you feeling bright eyed, ready to face reality, with some of the best at home remedies to target tired eyes.
- Cucumber and Milk Eye Mask – Best for smoothing and cooling effect
Cucumber is most commonly used to soothe the eye area known for its cooling and relaxing, leaving eyes fresh and re-energised. It is full of antioxidant that help to reduce redness and swelling whilst the milk has calming properties. Simply blend the cucumber and milk in a blender to form a thick paste and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes. Apply and leave it to set for about 30 minutes and rinse off.
- Strawberry and Rosewater Eye Mask – Best for reducing inflammation
Rosewater contains vitamins C and A, and is a natural astringent with anti-inflammatory properties which is incredibly refreshing and rejuvenating. Strawberries are rich in polysaccharides that have anti-inflammatory properties and reduce swelling and dark circles. Add strawberries and rosewater to the blender to make a fine paste. Keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes and leave it for 30 minutes and wash in luke-warm water.
- Banana and Lemon Juice Face Mask – Best for lymphatic drainage
Bananas contain vitamin C, manganese, biotin, potassium and cope and are high in potassium, which is excellent for your lymphatic system. The puffy eye is a clue that your lymphatic fluid is getting sluggish. The vitamin C from lemon juice helps to remove
all the toxins that cause puffy eyes and contains skin lightening properties that reduce dark circles. Mash the banana. Squeeze the lemon juice. Mix to make a fine paste. Apply and let it sit for 15 minutes and wipe off with a warm wash cloth.
Many people experience a lack of hydration and sleep when returning from summer travels and FOREO knows the importance of skin care, especially with drastic climate changes. However more often than not, the delicate skin around the eyes are neglected. Wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and puffiness are some of the biggest skincare concerns for men and women which is why FOREO developed their illuminating eye massager – IRIS by FOREO.
Enhance the effect of your at-home eye mask treatment this summer with a little added help from IRIS by FOREO. This innovative device is insured by the traditional methods of manual finger-tapping using T-Sonic technology (a gentle tapping movement), which not only de-stresses eyes but also increased the absorption and efficiency of all important SPF and serums.
The alternating T-Sonic technology is designed to target the eye area, smoothing away visible signs of ageing and fatigue to leave the eye area visibly smoother – hallelujah! Comfort is also key, and the IRIS is made from a smooth soft silicone outer which is sculpted perfectly to sit on the eye contour to gently massage to eye area with optimum results.
Foreo recommend using your IRIS eye massager for 1 minute every day morning and evening treating each eye for 30-seconds. Share your DIY at home remedies for tired eyes with FOREO on Instagram @foreo_mea and show FOREO how your use your IRIS.
