How to Get Rid of Dark Under Eye Circles

Sunday, 04 October 2009

how to get rid of dark under eye circlesUnder-eye circles are not the case when we can say that all is beautiful in a woman. That's why their causes should be identified and immediate action should be taken against this deplorable defect. The good news is that there are a lot of simple at-home ways to treat them. There is no need for surgery or laser treatments, all you really need is a trip to the grocery store and a couple of minutes to relax.

Whether it is due to stress, lack of sleep, a hang-over, or just from ageing, dark circles are formed as a result of swelling and expansion of tiny under-eye veins which are easily visible through the thin skin under the eyes. Why is this happening? What causes veins to expand?

There are several causes for the formation of dark circles under the eyes. The simplest and most common cause is chronic lack of sleep. If you notice that lack of sleep has become normal for you, you should reconsider your sleeping habits and way of life. However, even normal (8-hour) sleep does not ensure that you get rid of dark circles, if you sleep in the poorly-aired or dimply lit room. Before going to bed, you should provide a sufficient access of fresh air or properly air your bedroom.

Besides, dark circles under the eyes are practically unavoidable if they run in your family, but that isn't to say that there aren't treatments out there for them. But for those whose genetic background doesn't predispose them to dark circles the reasons can be numerous, including dehydration, stress, diet, or any combination.

Dark circles can often result from vitamin deficiency. That is why you often come across people with «blue veins» in the late winter and early spring. In this situation, you need to improve the immunity with multivitamins, and eat more citrus fruits, as they are a rich source of ascorbic acid which strengthens vascular walls and reduces their permeability. The habit of drinking tea, coffee or other liquids before going to bed also contributes to the blood overflow and swelling which results in the blue veins around eyes. Pure cool water can help to quench the thirst.

It's worse, if the dark circles were caused by a disease, because blue veins under the eyes can be one of the symptoms of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases or urinary and digestive disorders. If under-eye circles are your long-term peeve, and all attempts to get rid of them are not effective, there is a good reason to consult a doctor. Medical examination and tests will not only help to detect the problem, but also to decide upon a proper and timely treatment, before the abnormality is fully manifested. After the therapy, dark circles will disappear.

However, if there are no health problems, try the following tips. There are several ways to fully prevent or reduce the appearance of under-eye circles (even if you are genetically predisposed). Since dark circles can be caused by dehydration be sure to drink enough water (eight 8-oz glasses per day) and avoid things that cause dehydration, including alcohol, caffeine, and sugar. Diet and exercise can also lead to dark circles; these dark circles are actually an indication that you are not getting proper nutrients. Evaluating your diet to be sure you are getting enough to fill your daily needs is important. Also, there are quite a few natural home remedies to combat dark under-eye circles. Potatoes are highly available product which is widely used in the home recipes to combat dark circles. For example, take one cooked potato and cut it into two halves. While it's still warm, put each half on the eyelids. Some experts believe that you don't even have to cook potatoes: freshly cut potato slices are also quite effective for reducing dark circles. You can also make «a paste» of raw potatoes, mix it with pure vegetable oil, and apply under your eyes and on the eyelids. All potato-based home treatments should be done in the evening.

There are three keys to home remedies: moisturizing the skin, cooling the skin, and stimulating the skin. Moisturizing helps eliminate dark circles by dehydrating the skin, cooling the skin helps by relieving the stress around the eyes, and stimulating the skin brings blood flow into the area causing it to look more alive. The following are a couple of home remedies which complete one or a combination of these treatments.

  • Cut an unwaxed cucumber into slices, cool in refrigerator and place on eyes for 10 minutes.
  • Massage with almond or peanut oil under and around eyes.
  • Place two tea bags (preferably chamomile tea) in cold water for 5 minutes, than place on eyes for 10 minutes.
  • Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice, rinse after 5 minutes (be sure not to get into eyes).
  • Apply a mixture of lemon juice and tomato juice, let sit for 5 minutes, than rinse (be sure not to get into eyes).
  • Apply crushed mint leaves under the eyes for 20 minutes.
  • Dip cotton balls in rose water and apply under eyes for 10 minutes.
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, and iron.

Popular herbal home remedies for dark circle treatment include chamomile, parsley and sage. Strong chamomile tea is poured into ice-forms and frozen. With chamomile ice cubes you can wipe the skin under and around eyes. With finely chopped parsley you can make your own home face cream when mix it with sour cream (1:2). The mixture should be applied under the eyes for 20 - 30 minutes. Specialists strongly recommend enhancing the results by the application of nutritious cream following the application of vegetable, tea or herbal compresses.
