Using Almond Oil
Almond oil as we know is an excellent natural emollient and its fine texture and moisturizing properties is perfect for any skin type. Ayurvedic practitioners love Almond oil and they have been using this oil for dark circles.
Almond oil is readily available from health and aromatherapy stores as it's commonly used as a carrier oil. Carefully rubbing a little in to the skin around your eyes each morning and night should leave the skin softer and more supple.
Using Tomato and Lemon
Tomato is rich in Vitamin A, C and Iron, whereas lemon can act as "natural bleach". By combining the two ingredients, you will notice the dark circle will lightens after a few days of treatment.
To conjure this mixture, take one teaspoon fresh tomato juice. Add to it 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice and a little less than a teaspoon of gram flour. Mix all these thoroughly to make a smooth paste. Apply this paste on the dark circles around the eyes and leave for about 10 minutes.
Before it becomes too dry, start removing by rubbing very gently with your fingers. Later, wash your face. This application is recommended once daily. More quantity of the ingredients can be taken in the proportion specified to have sufficient amount to apply on the whole face.
Using Cucumber Juice
Cucumber has cooling and astringent properties that are very good for tired eyes. This remedy is a "quick-fix" to any eyes woes.
Squeeze the juice from a cucumber and cool it in the refrigerator for an hour or so. Add a little lemon juice. Make cotton pads and dip into the mixture. Place on your eyes for 15 minutes. The effect is cooling and relaxes your eyes.
Make sure to wash the area thoroughly afterwards and apply a little almond oil around the eyes to moisturize the area.
Using Grated Potato
Another effective home remedy is peeled and grated potatoes. Firstly, grate the potato, wrap it in thin cloth and place it over the eyes. Use this overnight at least three times a week.
Make sure to wash the area thoroughly and apply a little cream or oil around the eyes to moisturize the area.
Using Metal Spoons
This is one of the most effective "Old Wives Tales" that don't need much effort.
Cool a metal spoon under the cold tap for a few minutes, dry off the water and hold the spoon to your eyes for at least sixty seconds. Be gentle; don't press too hard.
