These little facials can give your skin the proper boost it requires to have great skin in between visit to your skin care expert.”

Also, here are some at-home tricks to get rid of every day beauty annoyances!!

DIY Get rid of pillow crease marks on face:
-          “Make sure you put your moisturizer prior bed time. You need to hydrate your skin so it doesn’t dry out and cause wrinkles naturally.  We recommend purchasing silk or satin pillow cases to prevent and avoid creases from forming during your night’s sleep. We also recommend sleeping on your back, which is difficult at first but this also helps avoid an markings on your skin from occurring. When you get up in the morning, wash your skin with luke warm water and give yourself a massage for stimulation. If you sleep on your face, it causes poor circulation which leads up to more wrinkles. Give your skin the extra circulation it needs to avoid any creases.”

DIY How to Reduce Puffy Eyes:
-         “ Morning and night. Boil 1 cup of water, add 1 organic chamomile tea bag. Soak for 5 – 10 minutes. Take a cotton pad, wipe your eyes with the chamomile tea and take the tea bag and leave on each eye 5 minutes.”
    Take 2 teaspoons, put it in the freezer; use the back of the spoon and hold it under your eyes for 5 minutes. This should decrease the puffiness in the eyes.

Egg whites Mask: Break two eggs, take only the egg white and use a tiny brush to then apply around your eye area.. This you can do in the morning or before bed and helps reduce the puffiness.
-          Ildi also recommends doing a 3 minute eye massage before and when you wake up as well. This gives your eyes the stimulation it loses during your sleep.
Cold milk: Soak 2 cotton pads in the cold milk. Leave it on for 20 – 30 minutes. Using this method, you’re draining unnecessary liquid and hydrating the eyes. The fatter in the milk, the better it is.
Cucumber and Mint Leaves is great for stimulation. Leave on like a mask for 15 – 20 minutes.
-          Blend cucumber and Mint and soak a cotton ball in them. Wipe around your eyes and rinse after 20 minutes.

**Drink plenty of water during the day and prior to sleeping. The puffiness could be a sign of dehydration. Cucumbers hydrating anti-inflammatory take 2 cold slice of cucumber and put them on your eyes and lay down. Wash your eyes with cold water stimulates your circulation.  Mint and chamomile teas work best! Cold milk is soothing.
