Fast Fixes For Dark Under-Eye Circles

Written by on May 31, 2023

There are many reasons why we have dark circles with the biggest culprit being genetics, as well as a lack of sleep and dehydration (among others). Here are some of the ways in which you can get rid of those dark circles.
  • Black tea bags — Tea of any kind reduces inflammation and helps decongest the sinus area (which can be a dark circle factor). Heavily caffeinated tea is also a vasoconstrictor, so it shrinks the veins that are visible through your skin.
  • Sleeping upright — You can slightly reduce the appearance of shadows by de-puffing the area. To do so, add an extra pillow under your head at night to elevate and drain any excess fluid.

  • Gentle massage — Everyone recommends cucumbers for puffy, dark eyes, but gently massaging the area (with the help of oil or lotion) is another spa trick that can work wonders temporarily. Just use a gentle circular motion around your eyes, moving from your under eyes up past your nose and then back around.
  • Ice — In the same way cold therapy can help treat inflammation, ice (wrapped in a thin face towel to protect the area) can also work wonders at de-puffing. An easy alternative to slapping ice cubes on your delicate eye area? A small spoon is stored in the freezer.
  • Hydration — Dark circles look much more pronounced when your skin is dried out, both because it makes your skin look even thinner and because it highlights the texture. Use a hyaluronic acid-packed serum or cream, and instead of rubbing it in, let it sit for 10 or 15 minutes to give the skin an extra boost.When You Eat Raw Potatoes, This Is What Happens To Your Body
  • Raw potato — If your dark circles are from pigmentation, not visible veins or thin skin, using raw potato on them is a great way to temporarily lighten up. Potatoes contain an enzyme called catecholase that, when exposed to air, oxidizes into a benzoquinone derivative, a gentler relative of common skin lightener hydroquinone.
