Using sunscreen with at least 15 SPF (but preferably 20 SPF) everyday will prevent dark circles because the rays from the sun are extremely dangerous to your skin.

5. Use Cucumbers

Slice a few fresh cucumbers and place them in the refrigerator or freezer for an hour and then place the cool cucumber slices over your closed eyelids help get rid of dark circles.

8. Mix Pineapple Juice & Turmeric Powder

11. Nostril Cleansing

Spas in India use an all-natural nasal cleaner to get rid of dark circles. Tilt your head slightly and pour water in one nostril and the water will come out of the other nostril. This remedy not only reduces your under eye dark circles but it will make your skin extremely radiant.

12. Potato Remedy

China, South America and Hong Kong use potatoes to get rid of dark circles. Potatoes contain enzymes that help to lighten the skin. These enzymes soak up the toxins that cause dark circles and leave you with clear, fresh eyes.

13. Acupressure

This is a natural Chinese remedy. Acupressure is in the forefront of anti-aging and is used to get rid of dark circles. Using your index finger, press very firmly against the bone just beneath your eyes and hold the pressure there for 3 seconds. You should repeat this process 10 times each morning to get rid of dark circles.

14. Drink More Water

Dark circles occur when you do not drink the recommended amount of water, which does not allow toxins to leave the body and those toxins can cause dark circles.

15. Get Some Sleep

Not getting enough sleep leads to stress that can make you not only have dark circles, but it can give you the appearance of a depressed, aged person and…

Not getting enough sleep causes the skin to appear paler due to a lack of circulation so make sure you get at least 6 hours of sleep each night.

16. Stop Rubbing Your Eyes

It’s important not to rub your eyes as this can irritate the eyes and the capillaries that are found under the skin can break.

17. Reduce Salt

Eating an excessive amount of salt can make your body retain water in the weirdest of places. This can lead to dark circles under the eyes. Reducing your salt can help eliminate dark circles.

18. Eliminate Allergens

Try to think of what allergens irritate you the most because they are known to be one of the most popular things that cause dark circles. If allergens are the root cause of your dark circles then simply eliminate the allergen or the thing that is irritating you the most.

19. Try to Prevent Any Nasal Congestion

When your nose in congested, the veins that drain the eyes cannot do their job so dark circles occur.

I'm 52 yeard old with dark circles under my eyes so bad it looks as if I've been beaten. I've tried the tips listed but nothing has helped diminish them in the slightest. I've tried numerous concealers however on my very pale skin they appear cakey with an orange tint no matter what shade I use. I've been plagued with these ghastly marks since my late twenties when I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. Any suggestions you could offer would be so appreciated!

Ok ..I reduced my puffiness(for boys) by aloe vera .., In the morning first wash your face with a good facewash ..it will cleanse the skin ..and then apply aloe vera gel (cut a branch from the plant and apply that gel directly on your face ) .... put it on for 20 mins. and you will see the results in just 1 week ..it really works ..it will also remove any kind of pimples as aloe vera is an antiseptic .... hope this may help :

I'm thirteen too and I have puffy dark circles under my eyes. Do the spoons have to have a special creme or does it have to have water or some mashed fruit on it? If not is it O.K. to have those things on it?

January 10, 2013


When i put the spoons in the freezer i don't apply anything to the spoons . I leave the spoons in for about half an hour.take the spoons out and hold one to each eye. I do this until the spoons are warm.
I am also thirteen and dark circles suck!

BYE! =]

Hi all, i've got the same problem with dark circles around my eyes and underneath, i've had that problem since i was 18 and i'm now 28 and its still there, its not just down to no sleep, stress can cause it to, if you have both problems stress/no sleep, its the worse thing ever, i've had both, if you don't sort the stress problems out it will affect your sleep and your dark circles won't go away and if you smoke cannibis it will not help as it effects the eyes so don't smoke sort your issues out and get plenty of sleep, try some natural creams and give it a month or 2 and you should see results, in some people it is in the jeans which cannot be helped only by makeup

Dear Priyanka Dumane

I am a fourteen year old girl. And luckily I did not have the same problem. But my older brother was covered with zits and pimples, it was so bad that he started to get them in his ears. So I heard to get rid of them, was to mix vinegar and salt. And we tried it on him and it work we did it every night and every night his face was getting clearer. The first time we did it it burned him, because his pores were opening. And now 2months went by and his face was clear.good luck I really hope you try it.;)
