      I did not know about any of these solutions. Thank you for sharing them. I am curious about the lemon peel. I am surprised it doesn't sting. But, I guess if it is soaked in oil it should not.

      These remedies use easily accessible ingredients. An eye pack of green tea sounds pretty good right now, along with a little nap.

      My eyelashes are not as long and full as they were when I was younger. Have you tried any of these remedies? Do they really work? If so, how long before you see results?
