Before trying any of these treatments, make sure you are getting enough sleep! Lack of sleep is one of the biggest contributors to dark circles.  Also, an iron deficiency can cause dark circles.  If your doctor says so, try an iron supplement.

At home remedies:

  • Dip two tea bags in cold water and then place them on your eyes for 15-20 minutes.
  • Almond oil is the most effective oil for treating dark circles. Rub a small amount under each eye before you go to bed. As long as you get a proper amount of sleep, the oil should reduce the darkness and puffiness.
  • For a quick and less permanent treatment, rub an ice cube under your eyes. The coldness with tighten your skin and allow for a new flow of blood.
  • A cooling effect immediately wakes up tired eyes. Let crushed mint leaves sit under your eyes for 10 minutes. Wipe off the residue with a damp cotton ball.
  • Tomatoes work wonders for treating dark circles! Prepare a mixture of 1 teaspoon of fresh tomato juice, ½ teaspoon of lemon juice, and a pinch of turmeric and gram flour. Rub it under the eyes and let it sit for 10 minutes.

If you have dark under eye circles, it’s not the end of the world! Between creams, makeup, at-home remedies, and just treating your body with care, banishing those pesky circles aren’t so bad after all!

XOXO,
