Different Ways of reducing your dark eye circles

Dark unsightly eye circles can be very irritating to most women. It can make us look haggard and ugly. In some worse cases, some look like "drug addict". I am glad i don't really have that serious problem. I couldn't imagine a fair person like me with that two dark patches below my eyes would seriously make me look like a panda. Haha.

These are some of the ways that may help:

1) Slice Cucumber or Raw Pototoes and leave it on your eyes for 15-20 mins.

2) Apply some Almond Paste under your eyes for 15 mins.

3) Always put 2 metal spoons in the fridge and have it as great rescuer. Leave it on your eyes for 10 mins. (It is quite effective for puffy eyes)

4) Vitamin E Oil. Apply Vitamin E oil and massage gently on your eyes every morning and night. ( Please note that the application amount should not be more than a tear drop).

5) Take a used chamomile tea bag( if not, any tea bag will do) and leave it for 10 mins.

Beside the above ways, most importantly you should also:

1) have enough sleep

2) Adopt healthier eating habits

3) Drink more water so that your body can detox as some dark eye circles are contributed due to body toxins.

4) Remove your eye make-up especially mascara and eyeliner properly. If you don't do it properly, it will also causes the eye areas to darken.

5) Avoid Sun tanning. Some people thought that sun tanning will help to camoflage the dark eye circles but that is wrong. Instead of helping, it worsen the dark circles.

6) Massage the eye area gently with a good eye cream so that there are proper blood circulation.
