Beauty & Skin Care Recipes

Health experts say that excessive usage of cosmetics by children enhances their risk to various types of cancer and other problems later in life.

Dark Circles Under Eyes Remedy

What causes dark circles under the eyes
Dark Circles under eyes are generally due to a lack of sleep, fatigue, stress, deficiency or some disease.
Dark circles may be hereditary.
Nasal congestion can also cause dark under eye circles.
Chronic atopic eczema on skin can cause dark circles.
Dark circles under eyes may also be due to aging which thins the skin around the eyes.
Eyelid swelling or eye puffiness can produce shadows producing light dark eye circles.


Try one home remedy at a time to get rid of the dark circles.
Dark Circle:
Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.
Take all precautions to avoid strain on the eyes.
Eight hours of sleep is a must for all of us, specially for people having dark circles under their eyes.
Do not leave cream on the skin around the eyes for long periods. Remove the cream applied around the eye after 10 min. No cream should be left on the skin around the eyes for long periods.
Close your eyes and cover eyelids with slices of raw potato or cucumber for 15-20 minutes. Wash with warm water and apply a cream.
Make a 1:1 mixture of fresh potato and cucumber juices. Soak some cotton and put on your eyelids and keep for 20 minutes. Wash your eyes with cold water.
Apply a mixture of lemon and tomato juice (equal parts) on the dark circles 2 times a day.
Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice for dark circles under the eyes.

Crush some mint and apply it around the eye.
Massage with almond oil under and around eyes at bed time daily for 2 weeks and see the improvement. Almond is very good skin food and helps to remove dark circles.
Rub the area with a powdered Vitamin E capsule and wipe off with a mixture of honey and egg white. This will reduce darkness around the eye.
Put hot and cold clothes alternatively under eyes for 10 minutes. Then apply some almond oil on the dark surface before going to bed.
The acupressure point for eyes is on the mount below the index finger of your palms. Pressing this mount may help.


Puffiness of Eyes:
Raise the head of your bed at night. This helps prevent fluids from accumulating around your eyes as you sleep.
Place a bag of frozen vegetables in a thin cloth over closed eyes for 10-15 minutes. and keep your head upright.
Tie some potato grates in a cloth and place over eyes for about 15-20 minutes.
Place chilled cucumber slices or damp tea bags over eyes for about 20 minutes.
Place damp tea bags over eyes for about 20 minutes. Chamomile tea is better because it has anti-inflammatory properties that will help reduce the puff.
Apply vitamin E or olive oil.
Practice the exercise for eye puffiness daily.
Apply a 1:1 mixture of cucumber juice and lemon juice for 10-15 minutes.
Apply a cool tap water compress to the skin under your eyes for about 15 minutes.


For better Vision:
Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A.
Immerse carrot in hot water and leave for a few minutes. Drink the liquid 3 times a day before meals.
Dip cotton balls in rose water or cold water and keep under the eyes for 10 minutes.
Try placing cooled chamomile tea bags over and around the eyes.

How to Treat Dark Circles Under Eyes#1

Dark circles can make you look older, tired, stressed, sick, depressed and just plain bad.Dark circles are a common non-hormonal skin problem or condition.

Dark circles under the eyes are caused by a very specific physiological mechanism. There are many contributing factors to the development of these dark circles and even more things that can make them worse.

Dark circles under the eyes are an extremely common and distressing issue.

Dark circles are not caused by stress, all-night work or partying sessions or fatigue. Dark circles under the eyes are a fact of life. Many people assume they're caused by not getting enough sleep, and they're right.

Dark circles are caused by one of three primary reasons. Vasculature inflammation. Late nights, allergies and nutritional deficiencies can enlarge the blood vessels beneath the thin under-eye skin. They acquired them with age and have failed to remedy the problem despite throwing every trick in the book at them.


Heredity is one of the main reasons to suffer from dark eye circles.
Stress or depression.

Prolonged exposure to sunlight, especially during summer.

Lack of sleep or fatigue.

Genetic hyper-pigmentation is the most treatable form of dark circles.

The best way to prevent dark circles under the eyes is to eat, drink and sleep well, reduce stress and combat fatigue.

There is one cosmetic - a light-reflecting concealer - which helps because it contains titanium powder which reflects light across the dark area.

The best way to prevent dark circles under the eyes is to eat, drink and sleep well, reduce stress and combat fatigue.

Drink tomato juice with some mint leaves, lemon juice and salt. Eat food with rich vitamins and iron. Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.



Home Remedies Dark Circles Tips:
One of the best natural cures for dark circles under the eyes involves using cucumber slices for more information on making cucumber eye pads see Cucumber Benefits for Great Skin and Eyes

Other home remedies for dark circles surrounding, or under the eyes include:

1. Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.

2. Yoga can also help you to get rid of dark circles. Do pranayam for atleast 5 minutes everyday.

3. Massage dark circles with any cold cream before going to bed atleast for 15 minutes.

4. Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice.

5. Dip cotton balls in rose water or chilled water and keep it over the darker areas for 5-10 minutes.

6. Almond oil is the excellent skin food. Massage under and around the eyes with almond oil daily for 2 weeks.

7. Apply moisturizers with natural ingredients such as avocado oil, sesame, vitamin K and Vitamin E.

8. Apply a paste of powdered almonds and milk under the eyes.

9. Slurp this juice to get rid of those tainted circles. Drink tomato juice with some mint leaves, lemon juice and salt.

10. Eat food with rich vitamins and iron. Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.

11. Use sunglasses while out in the sun to protect your eyes from the harmful rays.
