Your eyes are starring all day at the computer monitor. When you do not work, you browse through Facebook. No wonder you feel like you have sand in your eyes! Here are some handy remedies for when your eyelids feel heavy and your eyes are tired.
Nothing is a benefactor to your eyes as clean and cold water is. It is indicated to treat your eyes every morning to some cold water.

THE SLICE OF POTATO OR CUCUMBER:
The starch content of the potato soothes irritated and tired eyes. Cut crosswise two thin potato slices, and lay them on your closed eyelids. Lie down with the "mask" on the eyes, until the slices dry out. Besides the fact that your eyes will feel refreshed, you will notice that repeating this treatment alleviates dark circles and makes the bags under the eyes disappear. Instead of potato slices you can also use refreshing cucumber slices.
Palming is a therapy invented by an English physician: rub your hands together for a few seconds to warm them, and then place them on your eyelids. Wait for about five minutes, staying relaxed, and your eye fatigue and headaches will be relieved.
