Causes and Home Remedies of Dark Circles

Dark circles refer to the discoloration of the skin under the eye, also known as dark shadows or dark rings. Dark circles are common in both, men and women. Though they are not a serious health problem, unlike many skin diseases,  they surely can make people look tired or exhausted, older, and unhealthy.

Following are the major causes of dark circles:

  • Dry Skin / Dehydration

  • Long Working Hours
  • Unhealthy Diet
  • Exposure to Sun
  • Smoking
  • Consuming Alcohol

Using the below easily available items, you can get rid of dark circles at home.

Here’s how to use them to your benefit.

Raw Potato – Grate raw potatoes, extract the juice, soak a cotton ball in the juice, and place it over your closed eyelids for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse with water. Alternatively, you may slice the raw potato and place the slices on the affected area to get rid of the dark circles. Repeat once or twice daily until the circles are gone.

Tomato – Apply a mixture of one teaspoon of tomato juice and one half teaspoon of lemon juice for about 10 minutes on the dark circles. Rinse it off with water. You can also use just the tomato juice until the circles are gone.

Almond Oil – Gently massage a little almond oil over the dark circles and leave it on overnight. Wash it off with cold water the next morning. Repeat this daily until the circles are gone.

Rose Water – Soak cotton balls in rose water and place them on closed eyelids for about 15 minutes. Repeat this twice daily until the circles are gone.

Tea Bags – Refrigerate two used black or green tea bags for about 30 minutes. Place one over each eye and rest it for 10-15 minutes. Rinse when done. Do this once or twice daily until the circles are gone.

Coconut Oil – Massage a little extra-virgin coconut oil on the affected area and leave it on for a few hours. Repeat this twice or thrice a day until the circles are gone.

Honey – Apply a thin layer of honey on to the skin under the eyes. Leave it for about 20-30 minutes or overnight. Do this once daily until the circles are gone.

Cucumber – Slice a fresh cucumber and refrigerate it for 30 minutes. Keep the slices on to the dark circle area for 10 minutes and wash it with water later. Do this twice a day until the circles are gone.

Turmeric – Mix a little pineapple juice with two teaspoons of turmeric power and apply the paste, leaving it on the affected area for about 10 minutes. Wipe it then with a soft, damp cloth. Repeat daily until the circles are gone.

Aloe Vera – Use the aloe vera gel and apply it under the eyes. Using the middle or pinky finger, gently tap the gel on to your skin under the eye. Leave it overnight daily until the circles are gone.
