Yes, there are many natural ways to get rid of dark circles under eye. I had this problem too, but not any more. All you need to do is follow some methods for 1 or 2 months.

Firstly, you need to sleep properly, at least 8 hours a day and relax. Say goodbye to tensions, problems, too much thinking etc and try to stay calm.

Secondly, you should follow these methods:-
1) Use cucumber slices. Place a cucumber slice over each eye for 10-15 minutes. Keep your eyes closed and do this at least once everyday for effective results.

2) Use ice cubes. Wrap ice cubes in soft cloth and apply it to your eyes for 10-15 minutes daily.

3) Apply cool and damp caffeinated tea bags for 10-15 minutes daily. This method is very effective.

4) You can also use potato slices. Keep your eyes closed and keep the potato slices over each eye for 10 minutes or more.

These methods will definitely help you get rid of dark circles, if you don't have any other probles (such as, allergies,blocked nose etc)

Here are a few tips to deal with dark circles:

- Massage Vitamin E or almond oil around the eyes without touching the eyes (massage must strictly be external). This improves blood circulation.

- As a quick fix during parties, use a makeup concealer to hide the dark circle. But remember this is only a temporary solution.

- Get a lot of sleep. Sleeplessness is a culprit for most health problems. Have a set routine and have regular sleep timing. Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep.

- Drink lots of water. For anything related to health, water is still the best beverage.

- Grate raw potato, squeeze the juice and apply the juice under your eyes for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can also place thin slices of potato on your eyes (with them closed) every night before you retire. This is one of the most popular and time-tested home remedies for dark circles.

- Include a lot of green leafy veggies in your diet. Also include food rich in Vitamin A and E.

- Indulge in some kind of exercise like walking, jogging. Yoga, especially pranayama is known to improve skin health.

- Take two thin slices of cucumber and place them on your eyes. This removes the puffiness and cools the eyes - Dip cotton in rose water and place them on your eyes.

- Reduce salt intake in your food. Excess salt encourages fluid retention and leads to puffy eyes.

- The area under your eyes has very sensitive skin, so never use chemical bleach.

- You can also place used tea bag (cold) on your eyes which helps lessen the darkness - Avoid exposing your skin to harsh rays of the sun. Especially for the eyes, wear sunglasses whenever you step out in the sun

- Apply any best eye cream for dark circles containing vitamin K and argiline. Dark circles may be caused by a deficiency of vitamin K. Regardless of the cause, however, skin creams containing these two ingredients reduce puffiness and discoloration significantly in many people. Long-term daily use seems to have the greatest effect.|
