Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Dark Circles Fast
Maybe you’ve been pulling a couple of all-nighters studying for exams. Or maybe you just can’t get enough of that new TV series and have stayed up late to catch up on episodes. For whatever reason, the dark circles under your eyes cannot be ignored anymore, and when you look in the mirror, you see the eyes of a tired woman staring back at you. Sure, you can slip on a pair of dark shades or swipe on concealer under your eyes. But if you want to look refreshed even without makeup, then finding another way to get rid of your dark circles is the key to looking younger and more awake. By going green or natural, you can say goodbye to the panda look and look fresh and energized. Here are natural ways to get rid of your dark circles fast.
Use a natural eye cream
An organic cream for dark under eyes can minimize discoloration and won’t irritate the delicate area around your eyes. Because it’s made from natural ingredients, it’s less likely to sting or burn during application. Moreover, it’s better for your health and the environment. After your nighttime skin care routine or washing your face and applying toner and moisturizer, apply a pea-sized amount of cream under your eyes. Take care not to rub the skin under your eyes—instead, with your ring finger, use a gentle tapping motion until the cream has been fully absorbed.
Sliced cucumbers are perfect for making sandwiches, but did you know that this vegetable can improve the look of raccoon eyes? Cucumbers have long been used as a natural remedy for puffy eyes, but its skin-lightening properties can also help to safely improve discolored skin under the eyes. Simply cut a fresh cucumber into thin slices and place inside the refrigerator to chill. Place the slices over your eyes and relax for 15 minutes. After removing the cucumber slices, rinse the eye area with cool water.
The thought of using lemon juice anywhere near your eyes may make you cringe, but it can certainly help to lighten dark undereye circles. The key is to use the lemon juice carefully and to take your time to apply it to the affected area. Dip a cotton bud into pure lemon juice and carefully apply it to your dark circles. After 20 minutes, rinse it off with cool water. Discontinue use if you experience burning or itching.
You can look fresh and youthful by getting rid of your dark under eye circles the natural way. Try any or all of these tips to improve the look of your eye area and look more energized even without makeup.
