How to get rid of dark circles under eyes naturally?

Nobody wants to wake up with such dark circles under eyes that make people think that are somehow related to panda. There are different reasons why the under eye dark circles can appear: lack of vitamins, water or sleep, for example.

Often, trying to get rid of this uncomfortable problem, we use concealers, correctors and foundation, which can only temporarily hide them.
Let’s look at some tips on how to get rid of dark circles under eyes the natural way:

1. Cucumber

It’s very easy to find this watery vegetable in the supermarket during any season of the year. Apply thin circles of cucumber over your eyes (you can also apply a cucumber paste instead) and keep it on for 5-10 minutes, then, rinse off with cold water. Not only cucumber is rich in vitamins and minerals, which will help to hydrate, nourish and tone your skin, but also cucumber can whiten the under eye area, so that you can say ‘good bye’ to the dark circles permanently.

2. Potato

Another tip on how to get rid of dark circles under eyes is to use raw potato slices. You can use potato slices for this purpose or mix cucumber and potato paste together. Use it applying the same principle as described above. This treatment is all natural and is very effective in treating under eye dark circles.

3.  Silver spoon

Yes, silver teaspoon is not only a beautiful and elegant kitchen accessory, you can also use it to get rid of dark circles under your eyes. Put a silver spoon in your fridge for 3 minutes and then, gently touch your under eye area with it (yes, only a gentle touch, no squeezing or pressing). Cold spoon will tone the skin under your eyes and the silver metal will help to get rid of under eye circles.

4. Ice cubes

Our next trick on how to get rid of dark circles under eyes is to use ice cubes. Ideally, it’s better to prepare ice cubes yourself using green or camomile tea, for example. Camomile has calming properties, and the ice will tone your skin and reduce under eye dark circles and puffiness. Wrap ice cubes in soft tissue and hold under your eyes for a couple of seconds, then take it off and wait a little to give your skin some rest and repeat again. Be very gently with your under eye area.

5. Cooled tea bags

After you’ve had a pleasant cup of tea (green tea, for example), you can use your tea bags to fight under eye circles. Cool tea bags down (you can put them in the fridge for 3 minutes). This treatment can help revitalize and nourish the area under your eyes. Apply a tea compress on the under eye area for 5-10 minutes and then, rinse off with cold water; it can help reduce swelling and fight discoloration under your eyes.

6. Milk and white bread

Milk contains fat and proteins which are perfect for moisturizing the skin. Mix some milk with white bread and apply this paste daily on the area under your eyes for 5 minutes. This substance will smooth and tone the skin and will help to get rid of under eye circles.

7. Rose water

Another wonderful beauty secret on how to get rid of dark circles under eyes is to use rose water. Soak cotton balls in a cool rose water and apply to the under eye area for 5-10 minutes, no need to wash it afterwards. Rose water will nourish and moisturize the skin, help reduce puffiness and brighten your under eye area.

8. Sweet almond oil

Gently massage some sweet almond oil unto the under eye area prior to going to sleep every night for about two weeks. This will help to nourish and moisturize the skin and the gentle massage will help improve circulation, so that your under eye dark circles will gradually diminish.

9. Crushed mint

Fresh mint leaves can also be of great help in remedying the dark circles around your eyes. Apply crushed mint leaves mixed with cucumber paste around your eye area for 5 minutes and then, wash up with cold water. Mint has wonderful cooling effect, which immediately soothes the under eye area and cucumber is the true champion of under eye circle battle, as you’ve probably already heard; doing this treatment regularly, can reduce dark circles and refresh your under eye area.

10. Say ‘good-bye’ to bad habits

Smoking, for example, can not only cause under eye dark circles, but it can also lead to premature ageing. The same concerns excessive alcohol consumption. If you want to say good-bye to under eye circles forever, you need to get rid of those two bad habits and then, you will see an improvement.

Another important tip on how to get rid of dark circles under eyes is to remember that you need to have a good 8 hour sleep regularly, every night, drink plenty of water and eat healthy.

Stay beautiful!
