Valentine’s day quote

There is always some madness in love. But there is also some reason in that madness.

Do you love me because I am beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?

I love you, not only for what you are, But for what I am when I am with you.

music-of-love

The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love.

If a hug represents, how much i love you, am ready to hold you always.

If i had to choose whether to breath or to love you, i would use my last breath to tell you that i love you.

Anyone can catch your eye, but it will take somebody special to catch your soul.

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.

love-forever

Only for two times I want to be with you – Now and Forever.

Don’t say you love me unless you really mean it, because I might do something crazily by believing it.

The moment I first saw you, you warmed my heart, the second time you made little flames and now you make my heart burn like hell!

Never overlook me, never forget me But when you forget me, forget me forever!

Others say, you fall in love only once, but when I hear your voice I fall in love all over again.

love-at-rain

I hated the rain until I danced with you.

Love me not. Love me never. But when you love me love me forever!

If your heart was a prison, I would like to be sentenced for life.

Should I smile because you are my friend, or cry that’s all you will ever be?

Don’t cry because it’s over, just Smile, because it happened.

Preventing dark circles under eyes

Dark circles are a common skin bane. But many of us don’t know what it is that which makes those unwanted circles appear.

Dark-circle

Overworking makes your skin look pale and saggy and brings out dark circles.

Besides these, Ageing is another cause for dark circles owing to the skin becoming paler and thinner with age.

Exposure to the sun for too long can also produce dark circles due to the skin releasing melanin that makes the skin look dark and the dark circles become more visible.

The-effects-of-sun-exposure

Sometimes allergies too result in visible dark circles. Certain allergies cause a lot of itching near the eyes and when the portion which itches is rubbed, the dark circles become markedly visible.

Pregnancy and menstruation too result in prominent dark circles.Excess smoking and drinking also acts as one of the factors for dark circles.

Tips to get relieve of these ugly dark circles

  1. Keep a pair of fine slices of cucumber on your eyes for 10-15 minutes. Make sure the juice of cucumber doesn’t get into your eyes.

    Cucumber-on-eyes

    Cucumber with its natural lightening properties is known to alleviate the dark circle effect and in addition to that it has a great soothing effect. Once done, wipe the area under your eyes with a handkerchief/facecloth dipped in cold water.

  2. Next comes the Ice-cold tea bags (not the herbal ones though). Leave them on your eyes for 10 minutes, before that make sure the tea has been completely squeezed out. The anti-oxidants in tea are also a good tonic for the skin.

    The caffiene in the tea is known to lessen the dark circle effect. In fact caffiene is also known to reduce puffiness around the eyes by lessening the water content that causes the puffiness. Once done, wipe the area under your eyes with a handkerchief/facecloth dipped in cold water.
