    And, doing eye exercises first thing in the morning would be really helpful:

    Another tip is to splash your eyes with really cold water as soon as you wake up. That does help. Do get back on the results even if they are negative. I would love to find out other methods.

  4. Good blog. When cutting slices to put on the eyes is that supposed to be raw or after boiling and cooling it down?

  5. It can be used as raw slices. A good face pack and eye pack can be created by boiling the sweet potatoes and mashing them. Place them in a gauge (available at medical stores) or any clean cloth and then refrigerate the cloth for an hour or so. Make sure it is comfortably cold and then put it on your eyes. For using on your face, the mashed sweet potato can be used directly after cooling down to a comfortable temperature.

  6. Any remedies you have for stretch marks? I recently had a babygirl and I now look like a tiger all over, sad to say.
