Remedies for Dark Circles

Dark discoloration of the skin under the eye is mainly referred to as dark circles. Dark circles are common with everyone. Sometimes we can not get rid of these circles no matter how we try.

Some major reasons behind these hideous things are: 
  • Heredity
  • Aging
  • Dry skin
  • Prolonged crying 
  • Working for long hours in front of a computer
  • Mental or physical stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Unhealthy diet
Dark circles are not a serious problem, but they do make you look tired, unhealthy and older.

Remedies for dark circles

1. Almond Oil
Almond Oil is a great for the delicate skin around your eyes. Regular use of this oil will fade the darkness away.

2. Cucumber Slices 
Cut thin slices of cucumber and leave them in the fridge to get cold. Take them out and place these slices on the affected area. Leave them for 10 minutes and then wash with water. Cucumber has skin lightening properties and give a very soothing effect on the eyes. They can lighten the color of the skin, increase blood flow and reduce puffiness.

3. Rose Water 
Soak a cotton ball in rose water and put it on your closed eyelids. Rose water works as a good skin toner and it also has mild astringent properties. Being a rich source of antioxidants, rose water can help strengthen skin cells, regenerate skin tissue and rejuvenate the skin around the eyes.

4. Potato
Potatoes have natural bleaching properties that can help lighten dark circles. They can also help get rid of the puffiness around the eyes. Chill a potato in the fridge for an hour and then grate it. Extract the juice of this potato and soak a cotton ball in it. Now place this cotton ball over your dark circles and leave it for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with cold water
