In case you don’t have the funds to go out and buy the best dark circle eye cream, don’t fret.  There are many things you can do in the comfort of your humble home to get rid of dark circles under your eyes.  This article will outline a few of the many treatments you can use to get rid of dark circles.

Dark circles under the eyes form due to many different factors, including:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress
  • Genes
  • Leaking capillaries

Now that you understand a little bit more about how and why they form, here are the magical home remedies that may add a little bit of relief to you as you try to get rid of your dark circles.

1.  Make cotton pads and dip them in cucumber juice.  Place them on your eyes and let them sit on the surface for at least 15 minutes.

2.  Massage the eyes with almond oil or cator oil.

3.  Place cold cucumber slices underneath your eyes for 15-20 minutes.  I prefer doing this after they’ve been in the freezer.

4.  Drink as much water as possible.

5.  Dip cotton balls in rose water and apply under the eyes for 5-10 minutes.

There are also some opinions out there that talk about applying hot and cold presses, in an alternated method, for 20-25 minutes.

Personally, if I am short on cash and can’t afford an eye cream, I will use one or more of these methods.  Getting rid of dark circles under the eyes is of importance to most people, as they area under the eyes is the most delicate part of skin on the human body.  Curing these nasty dark circles is never easy, but once you do reduce them in appearance, you will see yourself looking much younger and less tired-looking.

When you look tired, people make many assumptions as to what is going on in your life.  A tired, groggy look is not healthy and people certainly will judge you based on this look.  If you look tired, people may make assumptions such as that you are a party animal or lead an unhealthy lifestyle.  Whether you are a blue collar worker or a business professional, you can’t afford to have society judge you as such.

For this reason, pay attention to dark circles and do your best to cure them before people go out and make judgments about you.
