Home Remedy for Dark Circles

Take used and chilled tea bags or cucumber and apply on the closed eyes to temporarily reduce dilated and discolored blood vessels.

Every evening before going to bed apply plain yogurt under the eye for 10 minutes and then wipe it off with a soft wet cloth. The lactic acid in yogurt helps to lighten the pigmentation.

When removing your eye make-up, make sure you use a soft cloth or cotton pads, do not pull or scrub the skin around the eyes as it is very delicate and any rough treatment will traumatize the skin which in turn will produce more pigmentation.

Get extra sleep and eat lots of berries, bright colored fruits and vegetables (as they have antioxidants) and drink plenty of water as dehydration is another cause of dark circles.

Wear sunscreen and sunglasses everytime you go out in the sun.

There are lots of under eye creams in the market that might reduce the dark circles. Some studies show that creams containing Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K and retinol may be effective in treating under eye circles.

Make-up is another way to conceal dark circles, try mineral make-up as most mineral make-up have light reflecting minerals which help by reflecting the light off the skin and so hide the dark circles.
