Easy Ways To Remove Eye Bags Effectively

Easy Ways To Remove Eye Bags Effectively

Waking up in the morning only to see eye bags in the mirror isn’t a fun way to start your day. Yes, these eye bags aren’t dangerous, they don’t harm our health, but do they really have to pop up on our faces? And also, why is it practically impossible to find an effective solution that would remove them?

I asked myself these same questions. Whenever I browsed online to find a way to remove my eye bags, I always found clichéd answers such as sleep more, don’t watch TV before bed. But, I wanted some precise methods that I could do whenever I noticed puffiness under my eyes. Luckily, I did manage to find out how to remove eye bags effectively (hooray!), and the methods are listed in this article.

1. Potato

Potato, you already like it in food, but you will love it for its abilities to remove puffiness. And the process is super easy! Here’s how to do it:

  • Refrigerate potato for a few minutes, then slice it into two halves
  • Close your eyes and circle the eyelids and under-eye area gently with both halves
  • Then, place each half onto one eye making sure it covers the area under your eyes too
  • Keep potato halves on your eyes for 15 to 20 minutes. That’s it!

    2. Egg-white omelet

    Although it sounds delicious, you don’t eat it. Here’s how eggs can help you remove eye bags:

    • Beat a few egg whites in a bowl
    • Take a brush (clean one!) and spread the egg whites over your eyelids and under your eyes
    • Wait for the mixture to dry (about 20 minutes) and rinse with lukewarm water.

      3. Milk to the Rescue

      Milk has been used in beauty regimens as a best skin brightening creams for centuries. Even Cleopatra took baths in milk to nourish her skin. And if it was good enough for the mighty and powerful Cleopatra, it’s definitely good for us. So, how to use milk to minimize eye bags? Easy, you only have to:

      • Pour some milk straight from the fridge into a small bowl
      • Take cotton pads and dip them in the milk
      • Place the pads on your eyes and keep them between 20 to 30 minutes.

      Milk is beneficial for cases when eye bags are caused due to water retention, and it also cools your under-eye area off making eye bags less visible. Do this every day and make it a standard part of your beauty regime. You’re welcome!

        5. Spooning

        No, it’s not about spooning with your partner, although that sounds nice as well. You can, actually, use spoons to reduce eye bags. And the method is really effective! All you need is a glass of water and four stainless steel spoons. Here’s what to do with them:

        Advertising

        • Chill the spoons in the ice-cold water
        • Take two spoons and place one over each eye
        • Once you take two spoons out of water to apply to your eyes, put another two spoons in the ice-cold water
        • Keep spoons on your eyes until they aren’t cold anymore.
        • Do this entire process of switching spoons for 20 to 30 minutes.

          6. Blink, blink

          Sometimes, the appearance of eye bags means you don’t really blink enough during your sleep. To “fix” the problem, each morning immediately after waking up, you should blink rapidly for 30 seconds.

            How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

            How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

            Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

            But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

            No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

            Advertising

            When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

            1. Relax as You Meditate

            A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

            Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

            Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

            2. Practice Daily Affirmations

            Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

            What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

            Advertising

            So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

            1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
            2. Use present tense (I have)
            3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
            4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

            Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

            Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

            Advertising

            I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
            My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

            Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.
