Dark circles are a common skin complaint, but luckily for those who want to eliminate them, it is very treatable.  There are many causes behind dark circles some of them are lack of sleep, stress and dry skin.  Men and women of different ages can all have dark circles, and if left untreated, they can worsen. 

We have listed 5 natural solutions using products you might already have:

1. Cold Compress – Our eyes often get dark when swollen, like after crying, and a cold compress is a great solution for reducing swelling.  The chill from a compress slows down blood flow and the same applies to blood vessels around your eyes.  A solution to puffy eyes in the morning can be simple as a cold spoon from your kitchen.

2. Cucumber – Cucumbers contain antioxidants and are useful for revitalizing dark circles under the eyes.  The pulp from the cucumber improves skin complexion.  Additionally, cucumbers also have a mild lightening effect.

3. Green Tea Bags – Similar to cucumbers, green tea also contains many antioxidants.   You may be aware that your body can benefit from drinking green tea but green tea bags can also be helpful in reducing puffiness by boiling them and then placing them on your eyes.

4. Rosewater – To soothe and refresh the eyes, rosewater is a soothing option.  Not only does it smell good, it also helps to restore the pH of the skin, and contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

5. Tomato – The simple blending of a tomato into a paste and applying it to the dark circle eye area will help to lighten and brighten the skin!  The leftover tomato paste from dinner can be a great benefit to the bags under your eyes.

Dark Circles Under The Eyes

Dark circles around the eyes have many causes. Sleep deprivation is probably the most common cause. Sleep deprivation can cause your skin to become dull and pale and can promote fluid build-up under the eyes. Other common causes of dark circles are are, eye strain, allergies, dehydration, overexposure to the sun, and genetics.

Almond oil is another great all-natural ingredient that helps eliminate dark circles around the eyes. Before going to bed, apply a little bit of almond oil under your eyes and leave overnight. Add in a bit of vitamin E oil for added benefits.
