For Mr. Steak

I understand that one of the friends of San-O Daze is having some problems associated with bags under the eyes. I did a little research for you and and came up with a couple of sure-fire help aids. For instance, the gadget below, the Electronic Eyezone Massager.

Or these...

Now for some natural remedies:
  • Use pumpkin slices on your eyes and relax for ten minutes.
  • Place grated potato on the eyes. Thin slices of potato will also suffice. Potatoes contain an enzyme, catecholase, which is a natural human skin lightener.
  • Mash some ripe papaya and mix it with milk cream. Apply the paste under the eyes and unwind for 10-minutes. Peddar Road based dermatologist Dr Radha Chowgule endorses the use of milk. “Milk has exfoliating properties. Just dipping cotton in milk and placing it on the eyes helps as well.”
  • Whist drinking de-caffeinated, herbal tea is good; the opposite is true as far as application goes! After using caffeinated tea bags, chill them in the fridge and then place them under the eyes. The caffeine acts as a remedy for dark circles by treating the puffiness.
  • Prepare a paste with milk cream and honey. Apply it under the eyes and wash off after 10 minutes.
  • Mix tomato juice and a few drops of lime. Massage the under eye region lightly for few minutes.
  • Place cucumber slices on your eyelids and lie down for thirty-minutes. The slices tend to get warm soon, so have someone replace them after every few minutes.
  • Alternate hot and cold compresses under your eyes for 10-minutes are also a good remedy for dark cycles.
  • Apply some Vaseline on a metal spoon and chill it in the freezer for 10-minutes. Place it on the eyelids.
  • Mix a pinch of turmeric in some rose water and soak cotton balls in this solution. Squeeze them out and place them on the eyelids.

Thumb rule: None of these remedies work overnight. Be regular and patient!

Best of luck, Mr. Steak.

Puttzle, God love you. There is, however, more dispariging news. I have tried all those renedies to no avail. To make matters worse, I went to John Wayne yesterday, not wearing my Hollywood Shades. This wiseacre comes up and asks if he could help me with my bags.

Those are good tips, but a better use of tomato juice, limes, and cucumbers would be mix with vodka, add a little hot sauce like Tabasco and pepper. Drip often and quickly and the bags will go away as will your other worries. Only do this at home or very early an SanO so you have time to nap before heading to Big Helen's or the DoHO.
