How to get rid of dark circles under my eyes


By Swati

Firstly, let me tell you how much I love wiseshe. It is great place for all makeup and beauty lovers. I really enjoy reading all the posts and gaining more information.

I have a  skincare query and I was hoping you guys could help me with it. It would be such a huge help if all the lovely ladies could come with suggestions regarding my query. If there’s one thing I hate about myself, its the dark circles that adorn my eyes. These dark circles are very pigmented and deep-seated and make me very self-concsious. It also looks hideous in pictures. I have 2 months vacation in college and I plan on following some skincare regime that will eventually
result in considerably remedying my dark circles. Please suggest some natural or store-brought products, method or procedure that could help me get rid of my dark circles.

Thanks and have a great day.

  1. I had bad dark cirlces under my eyes and drink tomato juice and add some mint leaves in itlemon juice and salt in it.I have been drinking it almost eveyr alternate days and with in 3 months I am seeing the change..When I take out the lemon juice i apply some on my under eye area…this too helps in reducing dark circles .

    I benefited with it hope u do the same:)

  2. >you can place potato slices or cucumber slices on your eyes when you treat yourself with a face pack, sit down and relax while you do this.

    >drink atleast two litres of water everyday.

    >massage the eye area with a mixture of almond oil and lemon juice, but for lemon juince you need to be careful, mix only 2 -3 drops as it might sting and cause burns on your skin if its sensitive, need to be sure on your skins tolerance with lemon juice. you can do this at night before sleeping , keep it for 20 mins and then wipe off with a moist cotton wool.With this you do not need an under eue cream, most of then just do not work.

      • Hello Anamika, I am a regular reader of your blog. I find it quite useful, espe before deciding to buy any product. Also the make up looks are very good. I have not tried diluted lemon juice, but i feel our eyes may burn a little, or sting…….I feel it would be better when mixed with almond oil……i have used this and it works for me, I do not have drk circles, I use this as a preventive…… 🙂

  3. Also a mixture of potato juice and cucumber juice helps, you can soak two large cotton wools in tht juice mix and apply on your eyes as eye pads…..
    hope you find all these useful…….and also adequate sleep…one tends to develop dark circles if they burn the midnight oil regularly…..

  4. soak cotton in rose water n place it on ur eyes for 10 min…..this will feel u relaxed n most imp as anamika said 8 hrs of sleep is necessary… 🙂

    • i swear by rose water tip…i am online most of the time and it is the rose water which keeps my eyes alive:) even tea water bags helps in soothing eyes na Megha?

      • yeah putting tea bags also relaxes eyes……but the best remedy for me to get rid off dark circles is to sleep sleep n sleep…. 😀

          • OMG :shout: i was really a big padaku during my schooldays n graduation but then wen i was pursuing mba i became a big sleepy :ZZZ:

  5. Sleep is the first and foremost thing 🙂 Then every night apply pure almond oil or aloe vera gel under the eye area. Do it religiously and you will see the difference. Also, before applying, cover the eye area with cotton pad dipped in cool rose water. This relaxes your eyes too along with reducing dark circles.

  6. Almond oil is’ll go for it 😀

    also since u got results in 1 mnth only.. dat’s a motivation 4 me 😀
