Cures for Dark Circles Under Your Eyes
There seem to be many creams and ointments on the market to get rid of dark circles from under the eyes. On an episode of The Real, the hosts of Fox's daytime talk show illustrated how to use home remedies to do the trick.
Adrienne Houston, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Jeannie Mai gave some very important tips that are sure to eliminate dark circles from under the eyes no matter how long they have been there.
Co-host Jeannie Mai admitted to co-host Adrienne Houghton that cucumber slices have often been used to get rid of dark circles. However, Jeannie suggested something even better.
Jeannie told Adrienne to go to the produce department and buy a bunch of parsley. Crush a handful of parsley in warm water and place the wet parsley paste on the dark areas. She was advised that she could put the parsley paste under her eyes with her fingers, or she could dip a sponge in the paste and smear it on the dark areas. This should be done more than once so the circles can completely disappear.
Use Raw White Potatoes
Co-host Loni Love admitted to co-host Adrienne Houghton that raw white potatoes can be used to get rid of dark circles. White potatoes are much better than cucumber slices because white potatoes will stay cold much longer. White potatoes are loaded with Vitamin C and other nutrients that help eliminate dark circles.
Loni told Adrienne to go to the produce department of the supermarket and buy a white potato. Put the potato in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Then cut the potato into thick slices and place a slice on the dark area under each eye while lying down. Make sure to use a slice large enough to cover the dark area underneath. Leave the slice on for about 15 minutes for immediate results.
Most people might not know this, but raw white potatoes contain natural bleaching agents that will not only help lighten dark circles under the eyes, but they will also eliminate puffiness from around the eyes.
Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley also used Adrienne as her model. She told Adrienne that milk is not just for drinking. In fact, milk can get rid of under-eye dark circles.
Tamera told Adrienne to pour some milk in a bowl. Soak a cotton ball in the milk and place it over the dark areas under her eyes. Make sure the milk-soaked cotton ball covers the dark circles under the eyes as well as the eyelids. Keep on eyes for 5 to 7 minutes. Rinse the eyelids well with cool water. Repeat once or twice daily. It might take a few weeks to see significant results, depending on how dark the skin is.
Milk helps to rid dark circles from around the eyes because it contains Vitamins A, B6, B12, and D to help build new skin cells.
