Tip #2: I saw a Panda!

Um...no. Turns out it was just my reflection. Late nights partying hard at the computer. Woo-hoo. Anyywayyy...

Quick fix for dark circles; put wet potato slices under each eye for about 15 minutes. No, soggy wedges don't count.

Potatoes contain an enzyme called 'catecholase', which is used in cosmetics as a skin brightener.

If you don't have 15 minutes but do have highlighter/concealer, apply only to inner corners of the eye and in the hollow then blend in to nose. NEVER apply concealer under eyes and outer corners and ALWAYS use a tap-tap-tapping motion.
No pulling of the delicate eye area please. You wouldn't scrub silk now would you? The tapping is also a form of lymphatic drainage. But that's a tip for another day...

Cool tip. Thanks. I'm getting ready to make a strawberry mask, heard it makes your skin feel great if you do it once a week. We shall see!

That's an awesome tip... I never knew about potatoes. Very informative Ms Wikipedia. :-)

I know cucumbers and tea bags for the eyes but I don't know why.
