Under eye circles is one thing most women have had to deal with one time or the other, and for many concealers comes to rescue. Unfortunately, once you wash your face or sweat a bit too much, your secret is out. > are a few tips to banish them once and for all, rather than just hiding them.
P.S. You won’t even have to worry about rubbing off your concealer during the day any longer.
Get enough sleep
There’s a reason it’s called beauty sleep. Lack of sleep can cause the blood vessels under the eyes to swell and take on an unhealthy tint. Try sleeping on your back with your head elevated to prevent fluid retention, as this can cause excess puffiness and make dark circles look worse.
Drink Your Water
Dark circles get darker when you’re dehydrated. Drink at least eight cups of water per day to keep your skin plump and glowing. Also limit your salt, alcohol and tobacco intake, as these can cause swelling in the skin and water loss.
Use Eye Cream
Eye creams are formulated to target the delicate skin under the eye and keep it extra hydrated. Store yours in the fridge to de-puff and treat dark circles. But be careful when using other products that include ingredients like retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids and vitamin C, they can irritate sensitive skin and make the problem worse.
Try a Home Remedy
Potatoes are packed with natural bleaching agents that can banish dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. To make your own remedy, grate a raw potato to extract the juice, and then soak a cotton pad in it. Place the cotton pad over the eyelid and under-eye area for 10 minutes. Rinse and repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks, and bask in the wonder of nature’s miracles.
Give Your Eyes a Massage
Once a day, use your fingers to apply gentle pressure in a circular motion. This encourages circulation and draining of excess fluid.
