Cures For Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

Updated on January 28, 2017

Use Vegetables to Cure Dark Circles

The ladies of "The Real" shared remedies to cure dark circles under the eyes. While some experts suggest you eat the vegetable, but the co-hosts of Fox's daytime talk show illustrated how to use the vegetables externally by placing them under the eyes.

Use Parsley

Co-host Jeannie Mai admitted to co-host Adrienne Bailon-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 use the parsley paste as is or she could use a sponge dipped in the paste and smear it on the dark areas. This might need to be done more than once before the circles completely disappear.

Use Raw White Potatoes

Co-host Loni Love admitted to co-host Adrienne Bailon-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 than cucumber slices. White potatoes are loaded with Vitamin C and other nutrients that help eliminate dark circles.

How To Use Potato Slices On Dark Circle Under Eyes

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 also eliminate puffiness around the eyes.

Use Milk

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.

Other Food Products That Work

Only three food products were illustrated by the women of "The Real." However, there are other food products that can to be used. They include the following items:

  • soaked tea bag (preferably green tea)
  • avocado mask
  • rose water
  • avocado mask
  • tomato
  • coconut oil
  • turmeric
  • mint

Which item do you think you will use to get rid of dark circles under the eyes?
