These are some simple home remedy treatments you can use to prevent dark circles from occurring under eyes.
One simple but highly effective treatment for ridding yourself of those dreaded, dark eyes are cold tea bags. All you have to do is put them over your eyes for about 15 to 20 minutes each day, and soon the darkness and the puffiness around your eyes will disappear. Either rosemary, cucumber, green, or chamomile tea bags will do the trick. Although inexpensive and easy to use, this natural treatment is one of the most effective solutions for ridding yourself of dark circles for good.
Another powerful method to get rid of under eye circles is to take some cucumber juice, potato juice, or lemon juice, along with some lanolin cream, and apply it around your eyes. This method only takes 15 to 20 minutes, as well, but is very potent in returning your ocular appearance back to its natural looking state. Just get a hold of some cotton balls and rub the mixture around the dark circle region with them. After, wash your eyes with cold water and pat them dry. If you apply this mixture twice a day, it will significantly reduce under eye dark circles. You can also substitute tomato juice for the other juices, if you wish.
A variation of the above remedy for under eye circles is to take lemon juice or tomato juice, and a pinch of turmeric and make a flour paste out of it. Then, apply this mixture around your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes and wash it off after it dries. You could also use pineapple juice and turmeric in the same way. They will also give you the desired results you are looking for.
Massaging the dark areas under your eyes with almond oil right before you go to sleep and also upon waking, will help in relieving this condition, as well. Similarly, applying some ice cubes or cold ice packs (cold compressors) under your eyes, after wrapping them in a thin cloth, will assist the blood vessels around your eyes to contract, and thus will help in reducing your under eye circles much faster.
Another point to remember is to avoid too much sun exposure, since this can definitely cause your eye condition to get worse. This is so because sunlight has a tendency to boost and raise the level of melanin, which is present in your skin. Too much Melanin, also known as pigment, in the area under your eyes can cause the skin there to become darker.
Some other things to consider in the fight against under eye circles are you diet, any medical conditions you may be suffering from, and the quality of your blood circulation. These all have a strong effect on your overall wellness, and therefore on your dark eye circle situation.
