3 Ways To Get Rid Of Under Eye Dark Circles At Home

It’s no secret that pretty much every woman suffers from dark under eye circles. These dark marks can leave you looking tired or sad but, luckily, there are multiple ways to cover them up. For starters, you can always use concealer to hide dark circles. But, there are also natural remedies that won’t require any makeup at all. Check out these three at-home remedies that will help fade your under eye circles as soon as possible.

1) Almond oil. It’s a great natural alternative to those expensive eye creams that are hidden in the depths of your bathroom cabinet. You can gently massage a small amount of almond oil under your eyes before going to sleep. There’s no need to rinse it off before going to bed, though—you can simply wash it off in the morning. This preventive measure will also keep your skin moisturized. Almond oil is effective when you have dark circles due to being dehydrated.

2) Potato juice. Potatoes have natural bleaching properties. Grate a potato to draw out the juice and then soak up the juice with a cotton ball. Keep the cotton ball under your eyes for 10-15 minutes and rinse off. You can even place cold raw potatoes on your face to achieve the same effect. Gill Sinclair, owner of Victoria Health, claims that potatoes have an enzyme called catecholase that naturally reduces any puffiness.

3) Rose water. It’s so good for your skin because of its ability to soothe and rejuvenate. You can simply soak cotton pads in pure rose water for a few minutes and then leave them on your eyelids for about 15 minutes. Turns out, rose water has Vitamin C, which helps with collagen under your eyes. Rose water also has many other health benefits that will give you glowy skin in no time. Using the water can help you to control excess oils, heal any scars, regenerate your skin tissue, and the smell of it can even help you sleep better! That means it’s both a beauty and sleeping aid all in one. How amazing is that?

Now that you know natural remedies to fix them, you may be wondering why you have those under eye circles in the first place. They can seriously be a drag, right? Well, according to Mayo Clinic, the circles can be caused by fluid retention, allergies, and can even be hereditary. You can ask your family to find out ways they’ve tackled the under eye issue.

As you can see, there are a lot of ways to get rid of those unwanted under eye circles at home. These three beauty hacks are guaranteed to give you results—they’re the best of the best. I’m personally going to try the almond oil method (or all of them, let’s be honest).
