Who doesn’t love under eye patches? They’re the perfect pick-me-up for your face when you haven’t had enough sleep, had a little too much to drink, or your under-eye area is fatigued in general. While the disposable nature of eye patches makes them easy to use and convenient, these single use products wreak havoc on the environment. There’s an estimate that the beauty industry is responsible for approximately 120 billion units of waste each year. That figure includes packaging, containers, and disposable single-use products.
With the climate crisis in full effect, it can be difficult to feel as good about using some of our skin care products as we do after we use them. Skin Gym has helped solve this problem- at least when it comes to eye patches with their new eco-friendly Re-usable Eye Patches. The Re-Usable Eye Patches provide the exact same benefits as those single use patches, but they can be used up to 100 times!
That’s so good it’s worth repeating! Skin Gym’s Re-Usable Eye Patches can be used up to 100 times! Not only is that better for the environment but it combats the erosion of your bank balance too.
How to Use the Re-Usable Eye Patches:
- Apply your favorite mask or serum under your eyes. We recommend the Skin Camp Weekender Mask
- Take the Re-Usable Eye Patches and dip them in water for 5 seconds.
- Remove the eye patches from the water and place them directly under your eyes just like you would with a single-use eye mask.
- Let them sit for 15-20 minutes while you relax.
- Remove the eye patches and wash them with a little bit of soap and water.
- Allow them to dry and store them safely in their container.
- Massage any remaining mask or serum under your eyes.
- Rotate the serums and eye masks you use underneath the patches to target different skin concerns. You can use a hydrating serum one day and one to combat dark circles another. Skin Gym’s Re-Usable Eye Patches make it easy to customize your skin care routine to your needs day by day!
- Store your re-usable eye patches in fridge to get a cool, refreshing sensation when you apply them. The cooler temperature can also help reduce puffiness under the eyes.
When you want a great eye treatment that’s eco-friendly, Skin Gym’s Re-Usable Eye Patches are the way to go. These eye patches help save the planet, your wallet, and your beauty routine!
