I learned to make these DIY cucumber eye pads from Michelle Phan’s “DIY Ice Cucumber Pads” video. The only tiny tweak I made from her recipe was that I used pure cucumber juice instead of diluting it with water.

Ever since I discovered this tutorial, my freezer is always full of these DIY eye pads. They are all-natural, cheap and a very effective remedy to combat puffy eyes & dark circles. Cucumbers have high water content, so you can make about 20-30 eye pads with each cucumber. Store them using ziplock bags in the freezer, thaw two whenever needed, and place them over your eyes for 10-15 minutes. My eyes area instantly felt lighter and more rejuvenated. Like Michelle Phan said, “bye bye puffy eyes”!

These eye pads are more effective than the traditional way of placing two chilled cucumber slices over the eyes because 1) the cotton pads cling nicely to fit the contours of your eyes, hence promoting maximum contact area & absorption 2) the cucumber extract found in an eye pad is much more concentrated than that from a cucumber slice.

  • Properties: Hydrating, refreshing, cooling, soothing; reduce eyes puffiness & dark circles.
  • Suitable for: Tired & puffy eyes, dark circles.
  • Frequency: Can be used daily
