Cut thin slices of cucumber and keep them over closed eyes. Cucumber is a soothing agent; the cool juice that you get out of each slice acts as a rejuvenator for dark under eyes circles. Next time when you come home from a tired office schedule or a long market excursion, try it out. Keep thin slices for few minutes say 5 – 10 and remove them. Wash your face with a mild face lotion. Not only will you feel refreshed but also you will notice that dark bags have started vanishing.
2. Green tea
No, do not drink it, soak the tea bags with cold water, and once again keep them over closed eyes. Tea is an anti oxidant; the water that comes out of bags also has anti-oxidant properties and hence fights the free radical activity below the eyes. It also reduces puffiness of eyes in a matter of minutes.
3. Aloe Vera
Use the extract of Aloe Vera on the skin below eyes. You have to be careful enough and protect your eyes from the Aloe Vera extract. However, it is very good for skin but you should avoid any foreign material in the eyes. I would suggest that if you are trying Aloe Vera then make sure that somebody assists you in the same.
As an alternative, you should use skin care products that contain Aloe Vera and other herbal ingredients that attack the root cause of dark circles below eyes. Home remedies for dark under eye circles can help you only to a certain extent but if you are looking for superlative results then start using natural skin care products.
Such products consist of ingredients that are natural and derived from sources like plants and herbs. They do not have any side effects.
As I said, I am not against using home remedies for dark under eye circles but all I am saying is that if you use natural skin care products you will reach your goal faster.
