My dark circles is one of my major beauty problems. It's something I want to get rid of. The circles keep my face from looking fresh and lively. So, once again, I researched the best remedy for it. I didn't want to use calamansi for my circles before because I know that the skin around the eyes is more sensitive than any other skins. But the heck? I wanted them lightened so badly! So, here's what I do...
Things You'll Need:
- Stack cosmetic halves in criss-cross formation in the empty yogurt container.
- Next, pour just enough lemon juice into the container over the cosmetic halves to saturate them. Cover them and label the container, and store in the fridge.
- Use daily by applying a cosmetic half under each eye and allow to set for 5-7 minutes. Rinse face with clean, lukewarm, water, and blot dry with a clean cloth.
Some articles say that you should leave the pads on your circles for 10 to 15 minutes but I only do it for 10 minutes as my skin feels too itchy and painful the longer the pad stays there. Here's me doing my new morning beauty regime. I do this twice a day. I also put the cotton back in the fridge and use the same at night. The juice is still there anyways.
