Dark Under Eye Circles Home Remedies

You're not alone. Dark circles under the eyes are an extremely common and distressing issue. Did you know that:

  • » Dark circles are the second most common dermatologic complaint? (Acne is #1)
  • » Dark circles under the eyes are the most common non-hormonal skin problem
  • » Dark circles are not caused by stress, all-night work or partying sessions or fatigue

Causes of under eye dark circles

1. Lack of sleep.
2. Inherited condition having a family with the kind of skin that makes dark circles more likely.
3. Fluid retention which causes puffiness that may cast shadows.
4. Aging which thins and relaxes the skin around the eyes.

Natural home remedies

  • If you have access to fresh figs, try cutting one in half and placing the halves under your eyes. You should, of course, lie down and relax for 15 to 30 minutes. Okay, fig face, time to get up and gently rinse the sticky stuff off with tepid water. Dab on some peanut oil.
  • Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.
  • Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice for dark circles under the eyes.
  • Dip cotton balls in chilled water and keep for 5-10 minutes on the eyes.
  • When figs are not in season, grate an unwaxed cucumber or a small scrubbed (preferably red) potato. Put the gratings on two gauze pads, lie down and put them under your eyes. Rinse thoroughly and dab on some peanut oil.
  • Dark circles can be removed by doing pranayam daily for at least five minutes.
  • Grate some cucumber and freeze in an ice tray. Massage frozen cucumber cubes onto eyes to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
  • Massage with almond oil under and around eyes at bed time daily for 2 weeks and see the improvement. Almond helps to remove dark circles, and is an excellent "skin food".
