It’s tough to feel ready to take on the day when you have a duo of dark circles that prevent you from looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. And it’s beyond distressing when your under-eye region remains raccoon-ish even after getting a full night’s rest. Luckily, there are plenty of natural ways to banish puffiness and discoloration problems under your precious peepers.
Dark and puffy under eye circles may be caused by everything from allergies to a good tearjerker movie to a pesky cold, a sleepless night, or even a hormonal imbalance or nutritional deficiency. For some of us, our gene pool is to blame for these unsightly shadows and bags. Whatever the cause, if you’ve been a slave to your concealer stick, try out these easy, all-natural quick fixes to brighten your eyes and get back your glow!
Natural Oils: Send under-eye bags packing by placing a few drops of coconut or almond oil on them. Massage it gently into your skin and sweep upwards with your fingertips until it’s completely absorbed. This will boost blood circulation to the area and may work to lighten dark circles as well as soothe, illuminate, and moisturize this thin and sensitive layer of skin.
