Banana Away Your Tired Eyes

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

The peel and fruit of the banana has natural intensive firming fibers and anti-inflammatory milky liquid extracts.  It’s  a ridiculously simple treatment that will take 15 seconds to prepare and 5 minutes to reap the benefits.

Peel (anti-creeping):  Step one. 
Take a banana out of the peel and run a large spoon from top to bottom of the husk until you strip it of its internal fibers.  Mix that with a quarter sixe amount of super cold Vaseline.  Apply to your lids and the top of the eye brow.  Allow to set for five minutes and gently tissue off.  You will be astounded at the reduction of the loose skin and the wide away look you will achieve.  Make certain prior to make up application that you take a icy washcloth or a refrigerated make up removing wipe to remove the excess Vaseline.

Banana Fruit:  Step Two
 Macerate the fruit gently in a small blow.  Again add one quarter size amount of Vaseline.  Freeze it for 5 minutes.  Apply it under eyes.  Allow to set for five minutes and gently tissue off.   Wrinkle, lines and swelling will be visibly reduced and your foundation and concealer will glide on.  Make certain prior to make up application that you take a icy washcloth or a refrigerated make up removing to remove the excess Vaseline.
