Some mornings our eyes are just not happy with us. Whether you’re sleep deprived, had too much salt the night before, or are dehydrated -eye bags, puffiness and dark circles are always an unwelcome guest. While a good eye cream and splashes of cold water help, applying an eye mask is the ultimate way to depuff and look well rested in a flash. Because we’re pretty obsessed with natural products and conjuring up solutions to beauty dilemmas, we came up with our own DIY espresso mask. The high levels of caffeine in espresso and coffee help reduce puffiness and circulate blood flow naturally. On top of that, we’ve added a chill factor using a frozen gel mask for extra depuffing!
You will love this awesome, easy-to-do trick to perk up your face like nothing else. Plus, you can prepare and freeze a whole batch ahead of time so it’s ready whenever you need it.
