Did you know you can help illuminate puffiness and dark circles by placing a cube of ice on the roof of your mouth with your tongue? Allow it to melt and the cold will penetrate and help to de-puff and lighten the dark circles underneath the eyes. In one of my celebrity facials, I was desperate to make my client look well rested as she had been recovering from a cold. I tried this out of desperation and it worked! Now I freeze either BORBA water or pure Acai juice instead of plain water to also provide a skincare antioxidant kick (with those new well rested eyes!)
