We understand it is important to get enough sleep, but there is so much to do in life! From working late to binge-watching series or watching movies late at night, we often indulge in such activities that cause strain to our eyes. This leads to sleep deprivation, which means dark circles become your best friends.
Dark circles are quite common and usually don’t indicate a serious health concern. Although their appearance does tend to make one look stressed, tired, and old. Do you also have dark circles underneath your eyes? If yes, that’s quite frustrating! But don’t worry, we’ve got a solution for you. There are several natural home remedies that can provide your eyes some relief from strain, dark circles, eye bags, and tiredness.
Here are three natural under eye creams that you can make at home to get rid of those dark circles:
Sometimes, people apply cucumber slices to their eyes to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Ever wonder why? Well, because cucumber has soothing properties that can calm the skin and help to get rid of dark eye circles. Plus, it has mild astringent and skin lightening properties which can also treat swollen eye bags underneath your eyes. Using aloe vera to prepare the cream can lighten any blemishes and dark spots and visibly reduce dark circles.
1 fresh cucumber
4-5 mint leaves
One small slice of aloe vera
Try this method twice a day to feel fresh and to get instant results.
One of the most effective and easiest ways to combat dark circles is to use green tea for quick results. Green tea is a powerhouse of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe strained capillaries in your under eye area. Preparing the cream with avocado acts as a great moisturizer and also works to reduce fine lines.
¼ cup of water
A handful of green tea leaves
1 small size avocado
Apply this eye cream regularly.
Rice water is being touted as the next big thing in skincare, but guess what? It has always been around! Rice water contains antioxidant-rich components such as ferulic acid, gamma oryzanol, and phytic acids. They help in skin lightening and anti-ageing. You can also add shea butter to prepare the dark circle removal cream.
That’s because if your under-eye region is dry and needs moisturisation, shea butter with rice water is all you need.
Try this method regularly and witness a considerable change in your appearance.
Since we’re adding fresh extract, the cream should be refrigerated and if you don’t refrigerate, the cream will only last for two days. So, apply the cream when it is fresh for better results.
