Rx for dark circles


OK. Here is a gift to all you dark circled-eyed folks out there – a homemade Circle Buster recipe.

Go to your grocery store. Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (Knox, for example).

Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1/4 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add 1 Tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute.  I actually tried this a few hours ago and used a bit too much gelatin.  Aside from feeling like my face was chiseled from stone, it really made a difference in brightening up the eye area. (But then, I’m sometimes delusional.)

Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball or your fingers, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel.  Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off.

I got this tip from a friend who worked in a day spa & this was their “Circle Buster” Treatment at a cost of $60 per session! Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, my source claims you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.
