A DIY RECIPE
To prepare this pack comfortably at home, just a few ingredients are enough.
- Juice of half a freshly squeezed lemon
- Cotton swab
- With the help of the cotton ball, carefully apply the lemon juice under the eyes.
- Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash off the treatment.
The eye contour area is generally one of the most delicate parts of the face, where the skin is thinner but above all poor in collagen and fat.
In light of this, if you have sensitive skin, it may be helpful to dilute the lemon juice by adding a teaspoon or two of rose water. Or, once the treatment is finished, we recommend wetting the area with a cotton swab soaked in warm chamomile.
Also, for all skin types, it is important to moisturize the skin after applying this pack as the lemon juice may dry the skin slightly.
