To make aloe vera eye mask, you need cotton balls or tissue papers, pure aloe vera gel and rosehip oil. Add aloe vera gel in a bowl and to it, add very little water just to liquefy the gel. Add in few drops of rosehip oil and mix well. Make sure there are no lumps in it.
Flatten the cotton balls and dip in the solution. If you are using tissue papers, grab a bunch and fold it; cut it out in circle and dip in the solution. Place the saturated cotton ball or tissue paper on the eyes and keep it that way for 15 minutes. Repeat 3 times a week.
