The area under your eyes is very sensitive and densely packed with tiny capillaries that are prone to expanding, and thus becoming darker. This sensitive skin is also a prime area for swelling due to the collection of fluid in your lower eyelids particularly during sleep, and the resulting puffiness can cast shadows below your eyes which only add to the perceived discoloration.

 

Nothing can ruin a beautiful face faster than having those dark circles and puffy eyes. Even girls with flawless skin can look haggard or extremely tired with these bags under their eyes. But fear not, because there are a few home remedies and non-surgical treatments that can treat dark circles and puffy eyes and even help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

 

If you are one of those unlucky ones who seem to be constantly having under eye circles, here are quick ways to treat dark circles and puffy eyes.

 

You can create a paste using one teaspoon of tomato juice, half teaspoon of lemon juice and a pinch of turmeric powder and gram flour. This mixture should be left under your eyes for 10 minutes.

 

You can also mix turmeric powder with pineapple juice to form a paste which also works to treat dark circles and puffy eyes.

 

Cold-steeped teabags can also be used to treat dark circles and puffy eyes. Tea contains tannic acid, which constricts blood vessels and reduces inflammation. Mint tea, black or chamomile tea bags are recommended.

 

Another way to treat dark circles and puffy eyes is to use milk-soaked or salt solution-soaked cotton pads. After soaking the pads in cold milk or lukewarm salt solution, the pads should be squeezed of excess liquid before you place them on your eyelids for 10 to 15 minutes.

 

Placing a cold compress on the eyes is also another effective way to treat dark circles and puffy eyes. This can reduce eyelid swelling by soothing the skin tissues. Ice packs work well. You can also make your own ice pack by putting some ice cubes in a plastic bag and wrap it in a washcloth.

 

You can peel a large potato and grate it into small pieces. Place the potato pieces into 2 small, mesh bags or 2 pieces of cheese cloth. Tie the top of the cloth or bags into a knot to keep the potato pieces inside.

 

 

You place the bags directly over your eyes, leaving them there for 15 minutes. The starch in the potato works as a natural anti-inflammatory agent and can help to reduce the swelling of your under eye skin.

 

You can make your own mask to treat dark circles and puffy eyes. You mash an avocado until it becomes soft. Then you add 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil to it and mix well. You then apply this mask to your face, making sure that the skin under your eyes is completely covered. Leave it there for 15 minutes and then rinse it off. This mask will stimulate blood circulation to the skin around the eyes and reduce the appearance of dark circles.

 

An easy way to treat dark circles and puffy eyes is to massage almond oil or a mixture containing an equal amount of almond oil and extra virgin olive oil onto the skin underneath your eyes before you sleep at night.

 

You can treat dark circles and puffy eyes by using eye creams that contain Vitamin K and retinol (a form of Vitamin A). Lack of Vitamin K is known to cause dark circles. Vitamin K is also found in leafy green vegetables, kiwi and avocados, which you should eat them often.

 

Therefore, when you use eye creams you should only choose those that contain Vitamin K, E, Aloe, or retinol. These vitamins are great antioxidants and help reduce inflammation. Aloe is a natural skin soother.
