Home Remedies to Erase Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

Whether you are staying up late at night, stressed, or simply have allergies chances are those dark circles under your eyes are becoming more noticeable. Maybe you did not even realize you have them but someone has been asking if you are getting enough sleep or how tired you look, this is why.  Do not waste a ton of money on creams or injections to get rid of them, there are other ways that are cheap to help you get rid of them. Each of these remedies will all be items/ingredients one can typically find in your kitchen.

Sleep
Make sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night, a little more if you are able to do so. This may not reduce those dark circles but it will help you stay awake and alert longer. The healthier you are, means the healthier your skin will stay.

Tea Bags
You have just made yourself a cup of hot tea, instead of tossing those warm tea bags away put them on top of your eyelids for 20 minutes. Do this every day for 2 weeks for the best results. This will dramatically reduce the puffiness and dark circles. The best type of tea to use would be green or chamomile tea because they are rich with antioxidants and are healthier for you to drink.

Cucumbers
Grab a cucumber out of your fridge, maybe you were planning using them for cucumbers and ranch dip or a salad. Save enough that, you can cut two thin slices and place them over your eyes for 10-15 minutes. This will help rid the puffiness but also tighten the skin around your eye.
Avocado – Place a slice of avocado under each eye. The oil inside the avocado with the coolness will help reduce the coloring of your eye and the puffiness.

Potato
Placing a slice of potato under each eye will help because of the bleaching agents inside the potato; this will help lighten the dark circles.

Spoon
In case you do not have any of the above take a spoon out of your drawer and put it in the freezer for a while. Once it is frozen take it out and put it on the dark circles until the spoon heats back up.
Do not forget to wash the eye with cold water after using any of the above remedies.  Finally, by eating right and getting the proper exercise this can help your body and reduce those eye circles. Every person should drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to you are your body hydrated.  Sometimes the dark circles are due to the lack of nutrition in your body, which means it is time to figure out what you are missing and put it back in. Gel, creams, facial massages and make up work as well but why pay a ton out of pocket when you can do all the above and barely have to spend a dime?
