Dark undereye circles are not a beautiful site to look at. For someone who has it, she would look like all beaten up and too stressed out! The good news is that under eye circles can be cured naturally. Here’s a beauty tip and secret all natural remedy for you all dear readers!

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.

Caffeine Tea Bags
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.

Almond oil and Honey (half & half mixture)
To eliminate dark circles under eye, massage a mixture of almond oil under eyes every night before going to bed. You should see results in 2 weeks.

Vitamin E for dark eye circles
This nifty little remedy for dark eye circles works very well for some people, and not at all for others. Take a Vitamin E capsule and carefully pierce it with a pin or needle. Dab a bit of the oil on your fingertip and pat it into the skin under your eyes. This remedy can help reduce dark eye circles and puffiness as well. When you’re done, swallow the rest of the capsule with a glass of water.

Avocado-Almond Rinse
Blend 5 drops of almond oil to 3 slices ripe avocado, smear around eyes. Rest 5 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

Potato Cream
Peel potato, grate finely. Measure 2 teaspoonfuls into 1 tsp urea-free moisturizer, mix well. Apply liberally around eyes, cover with damp cotton pads or gauze. Let rest 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

The cold washcloth
When washing your eyes after using any of these remedies for dark eye circles, use a washcloth soaked in cold water. Cold water helps to constrict the blood vessels under the eyes and can also reduce puffiness.
