Under Eye Circles

Under eye circles got you looking tired? Try laying down relaxing with chilled tea bags over your eyes or you can use cucumbers. Have a nice cup of green tea and then chill the bags in the fridge for later. Also make sure you’re getting a good night’s sleep. When you are done with your tea bag/cucumber therapy, apply some vitamin k creme under the eyes. Also avoid rubbing your eyes since it can break the capillaries under the eyes causing discoloration. You can also try wrapping a grated raw potato in a cheesecloth and applying to your eyelids for 15-20 minutes. You can also take a common herb known as Butcher’s Broom daily to reduce dark circles. It has been known to treat weak circulation.


Pour some milk in a bowel and soak a thin cloth with it. Spread it on your face for about 15 min or so and then rinse. Milk is a natural skin whitener. Also lemon juice mixed with a bit of plain natural yogurt is an excellent mild bleach.


Wear sunblock while having fun in the sun or if you’re going out. I would recommend banana boat with SPF 30. Exfoliate once per week with a mixture of oatmeal, brown sugar, and milk. Mix it into a paste and scrub your face, rinse, and moisturize so you don’t dry your skin out. Drink plenty of water and juice with anti-oxidants. Also try to avoid direct sun exposure. Help protect your eyes with sunglasses.

A simple small guide with tips that I have tried and hope will help you as well.
