Have you ever had a long night that resulted in dark circles around your eyes the next morning?  Those can be a hassle to quickly fix, but luckily I have a few home remedies that should help!

  • The first item you can use is a cucumber.  They provide an instant cooling effect and increases blood flow with reduces puffiness!  You can slice the cucumber up into small slices and sit them over your eyes, or you could grate a small cucumber and extract the juice.  After that, dip a cotton ball into the juice and apply it underneath your eyes.  Your skin will absorb the juice so there is no need to wipe it off!
  • Another strange remedy you might not have heard of or ever considered is a raw potato!  You can grate the potato and extract the juices from it as well, and dip your cotton ball into it and wipe it underneath your eyes.  You can also place thin slices over your eyes if you prefer that method.
  • The next home remedy is rose water.  This is a key ingredient in most facial wipes.  It reduces puffiness, which will help with the dark circles.  As you would do with the above mentioned, take your cotton ball and dip it into the rose water and apply underneath the eyes.
  • A more ‘normal’ remedy would be ice!  Just wrap a few ice cubes in a paper towel and hold it on your eyes for a bit.  The puffiness will subside and the dark circles will start to disappear.
  • The healthiest way to avoid dark circles is to drink at least ten glasses of water a day.  This has been proven to help, and it is the most natural way to reduce dark circles!
