Say Good bye to Dark Circles With these Tips!


Dark circles are the most common issues which a lot of people, especially women, face in their daily life. There are various reasons why one gets dark circles under the eyes. Over time, skin naturally loses collagen and grows thinner, so regardless of what kind of skin you have or what good habits you maintain, veins will inevitably start to show through the thin skin around your eyes. As we already know, exposure to the sun speeds up the process of collagen breaking down, so your best weapon against undereye circles are disciplined and consistent sunscreen lotion application habits from a young age.

Genetics are the biggest culprit. If you inherit fair or thin skin under the eyes, it’s more obvious when blood pools there. Age is another factor. Also getting stressed out and not getting enough sleep also result in it. So here we suggest some easy home remedies which you could follow to have a brighter face sans the dark circles.

Get Adequate sleep: Another important tip on how to get rid of dark circles under eyes is to remember that you need to have a good 8 hour sleep regularly, every night, drink plenty of water and eat healthy.  Sleeping on your back can prevent gravity from causing fluid build-up around the eyes. Consider adding an extra pillow under your head as well, but make sure it is a pillow that is effective for good sleep for if you can’t sleep, that can add to the dark circles under the eyes problem.

Remove Your Makeup Before Going to Bed: Leaving your eye makeup on can irritate your eyes, causing them to water and and get puffy. Make sure to gently remove your eye makeup before hitting the hay to help eliminate any added irritation around the eyes.

Regularly follow Simple home remedies: Most commonly, you can place cold cucumber slices directly on your closed eyelids for 10-15 minutes to help reduce the circles under your eyes, or something similarly cold like cold potato slices, chilled tea bags, cold metal spoons, or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel. For a more esoteric self-spa treatment, you can also use crushed mint leaves, almond oil, or a cotton ball soaked in rose water to help reduce eye puffiness.

Stop Smoking: Smoking cigarettes dries out the skin and weakens the skin on your face as well as your whole body. It also causes premature aging around the eyes, in particular. The chemicals found in cigarettes are toxic and can cause irritation around the eyes, which could result in dark circles or bags in addition to a wrinkled, droopy appearance.

Alcohol consumption makes it worst: The same concerns excessive alcohol consumption. If you want to say good-bye to under eye circles forever, you need to get rid of those two bad habits and then, you will see an improvement. Alcohol dehydrates your body and skin. This dehydration can cause the delicate area around your eyes to appear sunken and dark. Also, alcohol can cause bloodshot, tired eyes.

Reduce salt consumption: The parts of your body that are low in sodium (salt) contain more water, while the parts of your body with more sodium contain less water. When your body doesn’t have enough water but too much salt, you can look and feel puffy and bloated. The skin around your eyes is especially thin and vulnerable to dehydration. When you eat a salty meal but don’t drink enough water, your body will literally “look” dehydrated.
