Remedy for Dark Circles
A collection of dark circles remedies so you can get help fast
Just about everyone knows a home remedy for dark circles. They're such a common complaint that dozens of different cultures, and everybody's grandmother, has their own favorite remedy for dark circles.
How well does your favorite remedy for dark circles work? Some are better than others. None are 100% effective, especially against the kind of serious dark circles that send you screaming from the mirror.
Nevertheless, home remedies for dark circles can be helpful - for instance, if you've run out of eye cream for dark circles and you need some help right away. Or while you're waiting for UPS to deliver your RevitaLume order.
Best home remedy for dark circles
The most effective remedy for dark circles is also the most cliche. Thin slices of cucumber applied to your eyes not only helps to lighten the skin, but also soothes and cools the eyes. This can be especially comforting if you've been up late the night before or your eyes are red and tired from allergies or staring at a laptop screen.
Lay down on your back (because it's easier to balance the cucumber slices that way). Lay thin slices of cucumber on your eyes, making sure they have contact with the skin under the eyes. Leave them on for 5-10 minutes. It's a good idea to set your alarm clock if you're doing this early in the morning. Be careful not to get cucumber juice in your eyes.
RevitaLume includes cucumber extract, which is a less messy and more effective way to get the same cooling, soothing benefits of cucumber slices. The benefits of our product also last much longer and help to strengthen the capillaries under the eyes, to prevent future dark circles from forming. Learn more about RevitaLume.
Tea bags as a remedy for dark circles
The caffeine in tea bags acts as a remedy for dark circles by diminishing puffiness. Caffeine in tea helps to diminish water in the tissues around the eyes (you'll notice that many early eye circle creams contain caffeine for this very reason). In addition, tea contains antioxidants that are beneficial to the skin.
Take a used tea bag (green, black or white) that's been squeezed out. Make sure it's cool! Leave it over your eyes for about 10 minutes. You'll see a noticeable improvement in puffiness and under-eye circles. Be careful not to get tea in your eyes.
Herbal tea bags are not useful as a remedy for dark circles, except for chamomile tea. Chamomile is an anti-inflammatory that can help reduce swelling and puffiness.
The best remedy for dark circles under the eyes is a product specifically designed for that purpose. RevitaLume makes use of the latest research and cutting-edge products to diminish dark circles within minutes of application. You don't need to raid your fridge or brew a cup of tea -- just apply RevitaLume and see the difference. Learn more about RevitaLume.
