Talk about a luxury at home spa kinda morning. Think: coffee, breezy air, and cooling cucumber pads. Yes.
I saw this genius DIY originally on fashionlush.com so I am giving Erica ALL of the credit for this one. Thanks chica.
+ slice 1/2 cucumber
+ puree cucumber, 1-2 drops of clove oil, & about 3 tbsp water
+ dip cotton pads in the mixture
+ freeze for 20 minutes
+ place one pad on each eye & relaxxxxxx… According to this article, “cucumbers contain antioxidants which are thought to reduce irritation, while the cooling effect reduces swelling”. Clove oil supposedly increases blood flow which is why blogger Erica added a magical few drops to her DIY recipe. Why the heck not?? Just be sure to keep your eyes shut while using the pads to avoid any burning the clove might cause.
Oh and HAPPY FRIZZLE! I’ll be working all weekend (WOMP!)
