How to cope with puffy eyes and dark circles?
Naturally, you can always reach for expensive creams reducing swelling but you can also turn to natural methods and home remedies that have been used for centuries. A good under eye serum enables us to get rid of puffiness and highlights the eye skin area in just a few minutes but, sadly, its price is adequately high. Before you decide to lighten your wallet again, give a try to home remedies dealing with dark circles and sagging. Perhaps an under eye cream will be no longer useful.
Slightly cooled down in a refrigerator, a fresh cucumber is a perfect means of dealing with puffy eyes. It tones skin and fights back bacteria. Just put two slices of cucumber on your eyes and let them sit there for a few minutes. This vegetable compress delivers relief, it cools skin down and replenishes it with water.
A common potato also has much to offer. It delivers anti-inflammatory action and is able to highlight skin, therefore it works well as a mask for dark circles under eyes. Grate a small potato and apply the pulp to your eye skin area. Let it sit for 15 minutes. You will notice the effects immediately.
Puffy eyes can be also dealt with due to milk. Fats that milk contains soothe irritations, replenish skin with water and reduce visibility of capillaries. Thanks to this, dark circles under eyes disappear as well. Just damp a cotton pad with cool milk and put it on your eyes. Let it sit for a few minutes.
A truly effective and simple way to cope with dark circles under eyes is tea compress. Basically, all you need to do is take already brewed teabags and apply them to your eyes.

Apply a delicate massage using ice cubes or simply treat your eye skin area with something chilly. It will take no more than a few minutes to reduce swelling.
