Do you have a beauty secret? We’ll share ours, if you share yours!
Dear Blog Readers,
There’s one thing I always do, every morning. It’s become such an essential part of my daily beauty regimen, that, if I don’t do it, I feel like my entire day is thrown off.
Use eye drops.
Yup, that’s the thing. A drop or two in each eye, every morning. I don’t wear contacts, and my eyes aren’t overly dry, so one might question why I use them so much. Then answer is rather simple — they instantly wake me up. I’m convinced that they erase all signs of puffiness. They’re like the cream to my coffee…the filter to my Instagram photo…I just have to have them. There’s always a bottle in my makeup bag, and probably one floating around my car somewhere. This little bottle of saline-based liquid has the same importance as the pocket Tamagotchi I used to carry around in 5th grade — ALWAYS on hand, never not.
So I guess you could say eyedrops are my beauty secret. I 100% vouch for this bottle of magic. I feel like everyone has one little thing they do to help them look and feel beautiful, no matter how weird or uncommon. Your secret may not work wonders for your best friend, or anyone else in this case, but it doesn’t matter because all that’s important is that it works for you.
So now I ask, what’s your beauty secret? What’s the one product, or one thing that helps you feel better, brighter and more beautiful, no matter what? Please share in the comments below!
I wanted to share a new remedy that I’ve been trying — a few days a week — to rid myself of puffy eyes, naturally. (If you didn’t already guess, I hate when I have puffy eyes, hence the repetitive eye drop use I just explained above.) If you don’t have a beauty secret, or want a new one to try, your first step is to go out and get yourself some milk.
Beauty Benefits of Milk:
How To Get Rid Of Puffy Eyes With Milk
Cold whole milk (the fattier, the better, so try and use organic whole milk)
I like to do this as soon as I wake up. Pour some cold whole milk into a bowl, and dip 2 cotton balls into the bowl until they are fully saturated. Ring out a little of the excess milk so that the cotton balls don’t drip before placing them underneath your eyes. I like to lay down while I do this so the cotton balls stay in place. Leave on for 10 minutes, then wash your face with cool water.
The milk’s vitamins and enzymes rejuvenate the skin around the eyes while the coldness helps reduce swelling. Give it a go the next time you need a morning pick-me-up!
