How To: Get Rid Of Under-Eye Dark Circles

Got a case of the ugly under eyes? Fear no more. We are bringing you four natural at-home remedies that are sure to bring brightness and life back to those tired eyes.

Cucumber Slices. This trick isn’t just for a luxurious spa day, but should be a daily ritual for all of our morning beauty routines. Cold, freshly cut cucumber slices work as an amazing cooling agent for those annoying under eye bags. To try this out at home, take a chilled cucumber and slice it into a few pieces. Before applying, apply a cold water compress on the eyes for a minute or so. Then place cucumber slices over the eyes and sit back and relax while any sight of a late night, disappears. (Leave on for about 20 minutes). (image)

    I have always thought that there was something so chic about lying back with a couple of cucumber slices on your eyes – one looks like the picture of a lady of leisure. So I tried it one day after a late night, only to discover that I’m allergic and my eyes swelled shut! That was not the look I was going for. :-)

    I’ve heard of everything but the milk! Really now? Wow. I’ll have to try that. Although initially, I thought we had to drink the milk… I was gonna say what if you’re lactose intolerant?? But soaking cotton in it makes things easier for everyone 😉

      Same here. I have tried everything that is on this list save for the milk. I knew milk was good for the skin, I just never thought of soaking a cotton ball with milk and putting it under my eyes. I have bathed with milk before though. Thanks for the tip, I am definitely trying this one.

    Um, I see a pattern here.  Maybe just put something cold on your eyes after you wake up?

    Maybe not wise to put the spoons straight on to eyes, frozen things tend to stick and cause redness, the opposite of what going for I’m guessing 😀

    Why is this all about bags and dark circles ? That’s not from being tired .. Bags and circles are not always from being tired . Stupid article .
