how to get rid of dark circles under eyes? Answered



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.

There are eye creams made with ingredients (like Vitamin K), that have been shown to reduce dark circles under the eyes. Using a cool compress under the eyes can also help in reducing inflammation (that increases blood flow and amplifies dark circles). If you've had this problem for some time (i.e years), then its likely hereditary, so you may want to use some cosmetics (like a concealer or a powder) to hide the problem. If the dark circles have just appeared recently, they can be caused by a lack of sleep, allergies, an illness or even sinus congestion; so its worth visiting a doctor if you suspect something else is going on. (Sometimes our bodies tell us that something is wrong in strange ways).

Get more sleep. Find out what you are allergic to and either get treatment or eliminate it from your life. Allergies are the main reason for dark circles under the eyes.

Used cold tea bags over your eyelids might help. Also Preparation H®, is a good cream to use for that problem. Like Re-design said, you need to focus on what is causing those circles under your eyes. Once in a while treat yourself to a spa.
