By  | 

They say eyes are the window to one’s soul. When one’s eyes sparkle it is said they have good health, a warm aura and happy personality. It’s an age-old medieval tradition that men are usually attracted to women with brighter and bigger eyes because they are a sign of fertility. But with long hours and long nights of Netflix, dark circles, droopy and puffy eyes are inevitable. So here are some cheat tricks on how you can get bright, sparkling eyes asap!

1. Cold compressions

If you have puffy or sore eyes then cool compressions are the best way to tackle it. Place a cool green tea bag, or potato slices or a strawberry cut into half or even cool mint leaves on your eyes for 20 to 30 minutes. You could also opt for the most popular cucumber slices on your eyes. Now sit back, relax and let any one of these cooling ingredients do their magic.

2. Give your eyes a break

Another reason for sore eyes could be staring into your phone or computer screens for long hours. Take a break from your computer screen every 40 to 50 minutes rest your eyes and look elsewhere for 5 to 7 minutes and then get back to your screen! Keep blinking while working and looking at the laptop or TV Screen.
