Often we see people having dark shadows under their eyes. This happens because of lack of sleep, aging, prolonged gazing at a computer screen, and sometimes even long hours of crying.
Though dark circles do not cause any health problems, they can make a person look old and haggard, and this can also be a cause of distress for many.
Getting rid of dark circles under the eyes is not really very difficult. Just walk into your kitchen, and use some common vegetables to remove them and look rejuvenated.
Wash and peel a small potato.
Grate it and extract the juice.
Cut a small square of cotton wool.
Dip this in the potato juice.
Place this over the eyes, making sure the under eyes and eyelids are covered.
Remove after 10 minutes and wash the eyes.
Repeat this 2-3 times daily.
Take a glass of tomato juice.
Add the juice of half a lime.
Wash and finely chop 4-5 fresh mint leaves.
Drink this every day.
Take cup of orange juice.
Add 4-5 drops of glycerine and mix.
With a small cotton ball, apply over the eyes to get rid of the dark circles and make the eyes glow.
Cucumber is also very effective in removing dark under eye circles.
Either place cucumber slices over the eyes and under eyes, or just dab some cucumber juice over them.
Rosewater mixed with some cold water also helps in reducing dark circles as well as soothing the eyes.
Avoid over straining your eyes and look after them well.
