DDG DIY: 3 simple ways to wake your eyes up … using food!


Kitchen DIYs that don't require any cooking skills are the best kind, amiright? Even better, pantry beauty hacks that require only one ingredient are heaven sent. Going the extra mile, foods that help give us the wide awake, replenished eyes we so desperately crave are ZE best! So on that note, here are three special little edibles that can help take your peepers from drab to fab in lightning speed.


Avocados can not only rid you of your eye luggage, but also make the sensitive skin around the blinkers hydrated and crease-free. Simply peel an avocado, remove the pit, and pop some slices under each eye for about 20 minutes.


Antioxidant-rich coconut oil is not only delicious, but damn good on the skin. It's even better at gently removing makeup around the eyes and can even prompt eyelash growth. Leave a little oil on the base of your eyelashes each night to help them grow faster and longer.


Potato slices all around the eyes can be great at removing dark circles as they have bleaching properties and consequently, brighten the skin. Apply some whenever your star-gazers are in dire need of some reviving, and leave on for a minimum of 15 minutes to help the magic do its thang.
