Potatoes, Puffiness and Under-Eye Dark Circles

If you’ve had a heavy night and are now suffering from the dreaded ‘puffy eyes and dark under-eye circles’, try using raw potato slices to soothe your eyes. They’ll help reduce under-eye puffiness because they’re an astringent, (this helps to decrease any water retention which can cause puffiness), and they also contain catalase enzyme which helps lighten dark under-eye circles.

Simply wash and peel a potato. Cut two slices and place one slice on each eye for 15 minutes. Lay down, chill out and let the potatoes work their magic to help refresh and revive your eyes. Rinse the eye area clean gently afterwards.
