Things you need-
1/3 cup brewed hot black coffee (strong)
2 tablespoons gelatin
Plastic coated paper, plastic sheet or butter paper
In a bowl, add gelatin powder and add in hot coffee. Stir until gelatin is well dissolved and incorporated. Make sure there are no lumps.
Draw a half moon on the butter paper/plastic sheet and pour the warm mixture on it. Let the coffee-gelatin mixture harden. Cut the shape out and peel off the coffee gel eye pad.
for a quick process, let the gelatin mixture get thicker in the bowl itself and pour in the desired shape to skip the cutting process.
Place it under your eyes for about 30 minutes.
You can make this in bulk and store in the fridge. Chilled eye pads work the best! Use it once everyday.
