7 ways to get rid of dark circles using home remedies

Tired of dark circle and baggy under eyes? With the past pacing lifestyle and a little 'me' time, we ignore the dark circles that tend to age our appearance drastically. Here are some remedies to get rid of under eye dark circles.

Aloe Vera

With richness of Vitamin E and antioxidants, Aloe Vera lightens the discolouration and improper pigmentation my nourishing and hydrating the skin. It also reduces the puffiness of the eyes.

Potato

The natural bleaching property of potato helps in reducing the dark circles under the eyes. Simply dab the potato juice under the eyes or put chilled potato slices for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off, to reduce the discolouration.  

Mint

Mint leaves with richness in vitamin C effectively treat the dark circles and improve the skin health as well. The tingling sensation when we apply the crushed mint leaves helps in increasing blood circulation and hence reduces the under eye dark circles.

Tea bags

Tannin and caffeine present in the teabags helps to reduce the dark circles and puffiness by shrinking the blood vessels. Put brewed and cooled teabags under the eyes to reduce discolouration and inflammation if any.


Rose water  

The astringent property of rose water helps in soothing and toning the skin. Rose water lightens the dark circles, rejuvenates the tired skin and calms any irritation on the skin. Just soak cotton pads in rose water and let it sit on your closed eyes for effective reduction of dark circles.


Cold milk

Cold milk contains lactic acid which has shown efficacy in lightening the dark circles and reducing the puffiness of the eyes. Use a cotton pad soaked in milk, keep it on the eyes for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off.

Coconut oil

Known as the super food, coconut oil has a plethora of health benefits. The fatty acids present in coconut oil helps in reducing inflammation and increases blood circulation. It also has antioxidants along with skin strengthening properties. Gently massage the coconut oil under the eyes and leave it overnight.
