Are you stuck in the never-ending cycle of stressing about your dark circles which is worsening the under-eye bags? Fear not because this blog brings you 10 home remedies for dark circles

Heavy bags under your eyes are quite normal and can be a result of extreme stress. At the same time, they can be easily treated and removed. 

However, since the skin under your eyes is extremely sensitive, exposing it to chemical-based products can cause allergic reactions. This is why it is safer to stick to natural ingredients and gradually remove the under-eye bags. 

Thus, without further ado, dive into this blog and find out how you can naturally remove your dark circles.

5 Reasons Why Dark Circles Under Eyes Are Formed

1. Lack Of Sufficient Sleep

Several reasons can keep you up at night. This can end up making you feel groggy and fatigued in the morning. 

If you continue to fail to get enough rest every night, it will eventually begin to show in the form of physical symptoms like dark circles under eyes

Our bodies need sufficient sleep to repair and recharge for the next day. If you seize that right from it, the formation of under-eye bags is inevitable.

2. Smoking Or Drinking Alcohol

Excessive stress can force people to resort to substance abuse in the form of smoking or drinking alcohol. While these activities may give you temporary relief and drive all the stress and anxiety away, they may cause irreversible damage to your system. 

Smoking can dehydrate your system causing your skin to look pigmented, dark, and saggy. Uncontrollable consumption of alcohol can not only harm your liver but also darken the skin under your eyes.

3. Undergoing Extreme Stress

You are bound to encounter stress at every step of your life. However, the key is to learn how to deal with it and overcome the challenges it poses. 

Failing to do so will not only hamper your mental peace but will soon show signs of physical issues. Dark circles under eyes are often a result of failing to cope with your stress.

4. Hormonal Imbalance

While stress is the primary factor behind the formation of dark circles, there may be other reasons as well. Certain life changes, medications, or body issues may also cause dark circles to form under your eyes. 

This is because medications or bodily changes like puberty or menopause may cause hormonal imbalance in your body which gives rise to under-eye bags.

5. Unhealthy Diet

Our body needs the right amount of nutrition to survive, thrive, and be healthy. 

However, if you keep eating fast food and deprive your body of the essential nutrients, it will soon begin to show signs of degradation. This can be in the form of dark circles under your eyes. 

10 Tips On How To Remove Dark Circles At Home

1. Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera gel has nourishing properties which ensures that your skin remains moisturized. This prevents it from exposing any signs of ageing or sagging in the form of wrinkles or dark circles. 

For best results, you must apply a coat of the gel under your eyes before going to bed. 

However, it may feel sticky and uncomfortable and prevent you from falling asleep. In that case, you can wash it after letting it stay for 5-7 minutes.

2. Cold Tea Bags

One of the simplest home remedies for dark circles removal is by using cold tea bags. It is highly recommended to use green tea or chamomile tea as they provide more health benefits. 

You must dip two tea bags in a cup of water and refrigerate it for a few hours. Next, you can directly place the chilled tea bags on your eyes. Following this method a couple of times daily can greatly reduce your dark circles. This is because cold tea bags nourish your skin, promote blood flow, and gradually diminish dark spots.

3. Almond Oil And Lemon Juice

Almond oil is infused with vitamin E which enriches your under-eye skin with its moisturizing properties. You can gently massage your under-eyes with the oil before going to bed and rinse it off in the morning. 

Making it a daily ritual will fetch you amazing results within a week. However, if you find it difficult to do this overnight, you can mix lemon juice with almond oil and apply this mixture to your dark circles. 

The vitamin C from lemon juice offers mild bleaching properties while also preventing water retention which may cause your eyes to look puffy. 

4. Cold Milk

The lactic acid in cold milk reduces the puffiness from your eyes and nourishes the under-eye skin cells. Moreover, potassium and calcium from milk also induce collagen production in your body which also gradually reduces the dark skin under your eyes. 

All you need to do is dip a ball of cotton in cold milk and apply it to your eyes. Make sure that the cotton ball stays in place in such a way that the affected area is fully covered. 

Doing this even thrice a week will leave you with excellent results.

Next, you must place the chilled pieces over your eyes and take the time to relax. The antioxidants and nutrients not only moisturize your under-eye skin but also gently reduce any signs of dark circles.  

6. Rose Water

Rose water has been used as a remedy for several beauty-related issues for many decades. It has also proven to be quite effective in the removal of dark circles. 

Dip two cotton balls in rose water and leave them on your eyes for 10-15 minutes. During this time, you must rewind and relax. Repeat this method for a month and you will be amazed to see the difference. 

7. Mint Leaves

Why choose chemical products when you have mint leaves to your rescue? Mint leaves are often used in refreshing drinks. Their rejuvenating effect can be applied in the removal of dark circles as well. 

Take a few mint leaves and mix them into a paste. Apply this paste to your eyes and rinse it with cold water after 15 minutes. Applying the paste daily for only a week can expose excellent results.

Make a paste with these two ingredients and apply them over your under-eye skin. Leave it be for 15 minutes and gently wash it with lukewarm water. 

9. Meditation Or Yoga

After you have exhausted all your kitchen ingredients, it is time to do some introspection and follow some mental exercises to drive the stress away. 

This can be achieved by doing yoga or meditating every day. Fix a time in your day when you will dedicate yourself to exercises that will promote your mental health.

10. Getting Adequate Sleep

Finally, one of the most basic home remedies for dark circles removal is to get an adequate amount of sleep. 

It not only gives your body and mind the rest they deserve but also recharges you with the strength and courage to face the challenges of the next day.
