It’s been a month that the medical school’s classes has ended. Indeed, a month of no study, no exams, no home works, forget books, doctors and more. As expected, a medical student should gain weight. But that’s very opposite with me because I, instead, loss weight even though I am just fond of eating and sleeping at home. Oh well, I almost forgot that I was admitted for 24 hours in the hospital after suffering from acute stomach pain which cause me to get dehydrated as a result of loose bowel movement.
Aside from the mentioned stuffs in medical school above, the very most thing that I was aiming at looking forward for summer vacation was how to get rid of dark circles around my alluring eyes. LOL! Yes! I’m serious about that because having these dark areas under the eyes are kind’a genetically-linked in our family. Almost all of us, siblings, are experiencing such especially during stressful days – overnight works on school stuffs and studying, as well.
My siblings, even my brother, used to put a slice of cucumber over his eyes before he sleeps. As he said, he usually let the cucumber stay for less than thirty minutes for him to feel the relaxing and soothing feeling of cucumber over his eyes. This is, in fact, one of the many ways to reduce puffy eyes.
Personally, when I got home, I tried it for myself. Undeniably a soothing feeling that was. I used to do it every other day just because of a simple laziness to prepare a slice of cucumber for me. But it ain’t cost me much bucks cause it really pays the price of preparing that smallest thing in the kitchen because now I can really say that the dark areas under my eyes are all gone. Not to mention, I am having now a fair facial skin compared to during classes.
But June 2011 is fast approaching, classes plus more hospital rounds will surely cause me to have those eye bags again.
