What Causes Dark Circles?
Pretty sure this question keeps on coming to your mind as many times as you look at those severe dark circles in the mirror. Then let’s explore the main causes that lead to dark circles:
- Lack of Sleep/Irregular sleep schedule,
- Taking lots of stress,
- Not maintaining an appetite rich in Vitamin C,
- Having iron deficiencies,
- Smoking increases free radicals in the skin resulting in puffy eyes.
Time to dig through your cooking cabinets and make the most out of these effective home remedies to treat your dark circles!
Cold cucumber slices
Cucumbers contain antioxidants that can reduce puffiness around the eyes. As a coolant source, cucumber causes the skin tissues to contract. This makes under-eye circles less prominent. Place finely cut cucumber slices on each eyelid. Leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse.
Cold tea bags
The caffeine present in tea bags shrinks blood vessels and reduces fluid retention in tissues. This makes the skin around your eyes look vibrant and glowing. Cold tea bags cause skin tissues to shrink, leaving your eyes looking less puffy. Take two already soaked tea bags and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Remove and place them on each eye for 5 -10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and repeat 1-3 times a day to see effective results.
Mint leaves contain menthol that improves blood circulation and soothes and rejuvenates skin. It is a natural astringent and contracts the blood vessels around the eyes, reducing the blue tint. The Vitamin C in mint makes the skin around the eyes appear brighter. Make your own mask at home by blending mint leaves and applying them to the affected area. Leave it for 10 minutes before rinsing.
The vitamin E and tocopherols in argan oil replenish moisture of your skin/in skin cells and reduce wrinkles by repairing the skin’s dead cell layer. It also reduces fine lines and reduces the damage caused by the sun. Gently massage a few drops under eyes for a few minutes before sleeping. Leave it overnight and rinse in the morning.
