Homemade Brightening Eye Mask with Red Lentils and Almonds

Hello ladies

I really missed my IMBB, so now, finally I am back after a long vacation. It was an amazing tour. I really enjoy the wedding but I am also so tried after the long journey. Indian weddings always mean heavy makeup, irregular diet, etc. So, after all of that, my sensitive, oily skin really behaved like crazy. I got bad dark circles around my eyes. I just wanted to get rid of them. Whenever, I am in trouble with my skin problems, I always prefer to use natural ingredients. They have amazing skin benefits and are best for my skin. I love to use this easy eye mask regularly now as it brightens my under eye area. I would like to share it with you guys.

The under eye area is the most sensitive area of your face. So, they need some extra TLC always. While I was travelling, I could not use my makeup remover cream instead I had used makeup remover wipes. The regular rub with those wipes made my under eye area dark. So, please girls never make this mistake.

I use this mask and also use cucumber slice as a remedy to brighten my under eye area. This mask helps to reduce dark circle, makes your under eye area bright and healthy. It also tightens up your under eye area. I can notice a bit of difference. But, I still need to continue using it. This is not a miraculous remedy so you need to use it on a regular basis. I am sure you will notice the difference. Hope you enjoy it.
