REDUCE DARK CIRCLES UNDER YOUR EYES, THE NATURAL WAY
Ladies, you all should know how annoying those dark circles can be and no matter how hard you try to hide them, they always seem to show up in photos…embarrassing right?
We’re going to reveal a couple of extremely easy natural remedies for dark circles, which you can do yourself cheaply and with ease.
However, before moving onto treatment methods, let’s talk about why dark circles appear in the first place.
Here’s the reason Why You Get under Eye Dark Circles
Around our eyes and particularly right below them, we have A LOT of tiny blood vessels (capillaries). For some of us, these capillaries are extremely fragile and can be ruptured easily. When this happens blood spills out into the open, much the same as any regular bruise would look like.
Due to the fact that many of us only have a thin layer of skin below our eyes, the bruising from these burst capillaries shows up easily.
Therefore there are two ways of reducing the appearance of dark circles under our eyes:
- Create a thicker layer of skin by increasing collagen production.
- Strengthen the tiny capillaries under our eyes to help prevent them from bursting.
This is all you need to keep in mind when it comes to treating dark circles under your eyes.
Our Favorite Natural Remedies for Dark Circles
Okay some of these you may already know, but others we’re sure you haven’t tried yet starting with…
This may not sound surprising to you because other health benefits of lemons are already known. Take lemons for dark circles every morning before you eat anything, try squeezing a fresh lemon into 8 oz. of water and down that sucker! Lemons are amazing at helping the liver to remove those evil toxins from our body. Because these toxins are carried around in our blood, they have the ability to, yes that’s right, rupture fine blood vessels (just like the ones found under our eyes).
Keeping our liver healthy, allows it to more easily remove these hateful toxins from our bodies, reducing the chances of them rupturing our smallest of blood vessels.
Green tea for dark circles. This one is pretty simple, but highly effective. Now, just soak 2 teabags under warm water before ringing them out so that they are damp but not dripping wet.
Place one over each eye and lie down on your back for 30 minutes. Again it is very much advised to do this first thing in the morning to allow for the best results, but if that’s not possible for you, 20 minutes before bed will do just fine.
There’s only one rule you need to stick to when doing this and that is to use only green tea. Try and find tea with the highest level of caffeine possible for best results.
Honey & Orange
Honey and orange for dark circles. Mix together honey, orange juice and some flour until you have a mixture that is thick and smooth (it should not be sticky). You don’t need much, just enough to apply under both of your eyes. Throw the mixture into the fridge for 30 minutes to cool it down.
Once you’re ready, apply it below your eyes for 15 to 20 minutes for maximum results. This is something you can easily do in the morning before work and trust us, every time you look in the mirror throughout the day, you’ll be happy with what you see.
