How to get rid of the dark circles under your eyes?

Eyes are the windows to our soul and no one likes dark circles around them. Brighten up your eyes with this simple guide we’ve put together for you to behold!

Dark circles under the eyes are common problems faced by people of every age group. The skin around your eye is very sensitive and hence chances of getting dark blemishes are very high. Medical terminology for dark circles is periorbital circles. They are formed due to collagen breakdown. The reasons for the occurrence of dark circles can vary from disturbed sleep to hereditary traits.

Here are a few tips which you can follow to get rid of dark circles:

Adequate sleep

Sleep is very important. People who do not get enough sleep are more susceptible to dark circles. This may also lead to premature aging. You should get 6-8 hours of sleep per day.

Sunscreen

Use sunscreen whenever you step out of the house. It will protect you from the harmful rays  – UVA and UVB – of the Sun. Your sunscreen should contain at least SPF 15. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before leaving your house for best results and do not forget to carry your sunglasses.

Water

It is very important to keep your skin hydrated because dry skin is more prone to formation of dark circles. Make it a habit to drink 8-10 glasses of water every day as it will keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Exercise

The skin under your eyes has lots of blood vessels. Regular exercises will increase blood circulation, which will help in the reduction of dark blemishes. If you do not have time for exercise then make it a habit to walk and climb stair case.

Diet

Imbalanced diet also causes dark circles. It is very important that you eat a balanced diet. Never skip your meals, especially your breakfast.  Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables that will add the requisite amount of iron and vitamins to your diet.

Cleanser

It is very important to cleanse your face before going to bed. No matter how tired you are, take a few minutes to clean your face properly. Apply a mild moisturizer and go to sleep.

Cucumber juice

Apply cucumber juice around your eyes using a cotton ball. Leave it for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off. Do it on a regular basis.

Potato juice

Potato juice acts as the best remedy to treat dark circles. Apply the juice using a cotton ball and leave it till it dries and then wash it off.

Retinol

Retinol is a cream which is obtained from vitamin A. It can be applied around the eyes as it can increase production of collagen to give you a clear skin.

By following these tips leave the shadows under your eyes behind and sport a clear face.
