There’s no magic fix when it comes to getting rid of dark circles, I’ve battled with them all my life and although they never disappear entirely they seem to look best when I’ve followed these tips.

1. Aim to drink 8 glasses of water a day
2. Take vitamin supplements with added iron
3. Get a solid 8-10 hours of peaceful sleep
4. Have a good work out

Dark circles are a sign of being run down, so making that extra effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle really can make all the difference.

  1. A combination of different factors can conspire to form dark circles: aging, sun damage, heredity, allergies, and even poor lighting.

    Probably the only fat you don’t want to loose lies right under your eye and above the cheekbone, called the infra orbital fat pad. It thins with age, producing a sunken appearance. Light reflects off this recessed area, creating the illusion of shadowy circles. (Contrary to popular believe, most dark circles have nothing to do with actual changes in skin color.)

    Because of aging and sun damage (with some genetic tenancy thrown in for good measure) microscopic blood vessels under the eyes can lose their stability and strength. The body compensates by forming lots of tiny new veins. A thinner fat pad means those veins are closer to the skin’s surface. The result: darker dark circles.

    A couple of quick fixes:

    apply moist cool tea bags (caffeinated, like Earl Grey or English breakfast) is a quick fix for puffiness. the tannins in the tea decrease the inflammation, reduce swelling. The caffeine draws water from the skin deflating puffiness.

    another fix is cool cucumbers. Enzymes in the cucumber slices reduce the tissue inflammation, shrinking bags and helping erase unbecoming shadows.

    These are great appearance enhancers for when you need to look your best. They’re temporary, but they work!

    The best bet is to conceal with makeup… Yellow neutralizes blues, purples, and dusky hues on the skin.

    And treat antioxidants stimulate the activity of fibroblasts cells in the dermis that help create skin strengthening collagen. This firms and tones the area. The best fibroblast-stimulating antioxidants include Vitamin C, and GHK copper peptides.


  2. R> This is a quick and permanent solution that truly works. It got rid of mine and those of wannabeblue 28 and Candi:) below.

    wannabeblue28: “Hi Mukunda M. I have just been rubbing my face with oil using my fingers and hands and It has made a HUGE difference in my complexion after just one night. …… My skin looks so much tighter everywhere and i no longer have bags under my eyes! Thank you so much for your post, I have been suffering with acne and under-eye circles since i was young.”

    Candi:) “I tried this a day or 2 ago, OMGosh it workedd out amazingly, thx some much and thx to you who ansered, they were all good answers. =D”

    Specialized massaging greatly tightens skin under and around the eye area and the bags go away. First make skin tight by opening mouth 3/4′ and pulling lips firmly back against teeth. You will see that it very much tightens where the bags are and so it reduces them as you massage and then massaging itself makes the tightening greater.
    Use both hands. Massage quite vigorously with front of palms and fingers held together:.
    (1) Long up and down sweeps close to nose from chin area up to near eyes.
    (2) Do another up and back at an angle from near chin point to cheek bone.
    (3) Do fast up and down massage close to eye from cheek bones at an angle of 45 degrees (on crows feet area).

    Do for several minutes daily (not necessarily in one session) – skin will become tighter under and around eye and the circles will visibly diminish in the first two or three days.

    Use any natural oil. Extra virgin olive and E.V. coconut oils work well for many. They are noncomedogenic – so do not clog or enlarge pores or cause breakouts

    YOGA MEDITATION is a great help also and is easy to do. It enables you to completely relax and gives you deep, restful sleep. 6 hours of restful sleep is considerably more beneficial than 8 or 9 more. Siddha Yoga is very effective.
