6 Home Based Remedies to get rid of Dark Circles

Are you tired of bearing the burden of those big dark-circles under your eyes and applying make-up everyday to hide them? Or have you ever happened to come across that the boy who's staring at you for so long has actually misunderstood you for some phantom? If you are facing such problems (probably the second one), then you must need to stop looking like a spirit by implementing these home-made remedies:   

Water Intake

If you are lazy enough to take care of your skin and specially dark circles, but want to get rid of them badly then the most simple and effortless solution is to drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water each day.When the body is well hydrated, there is less chance of water retention that can cause your under-eye area and other parts of your body to swell. Water also helps flush toxins out of the body. Moreover,avoid taking caffeinated and carbonated beverages and reduce the amount of salt to prevent your body from dehydration.

Tea Bags

Tea-bags contain anti-irritant properties that help reduce swelling around your eyes. They can also relieve redness and inflammation.Maybe you are wondering now that how can tea-bags help to remove dark circles, here are a few steps to follow:

  • Put 2 used tea bags in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Lie down and put the tea bags over your eyelids.
  • Leave them in place for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Repeat a few times a day.

Egg Whites

Egg whites can help banish under-eye bags as well as wrinkles.Try this out using the following simple and straightforward steps:

  • Mix one egg white with 3-5 drops of lemon juice. 
  • Saturate two clean cotton balls in the mixture, squeeze excess liquid out before placing over the eyes for 10 minutes. 
  • Wash off with warm water then rinse with cold.


The lactic acid in milk softens and moisturizes the skin under the eyes. It also contains antioxidants that are required to strengthen the skin and heal damaged skin.Don't waste your time on thinking and check out this amazing remedy:

  • Soak cotton balls in cold milk that has been in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Place the cotton balls under your eyes and hold them there until they become warm.
  • Follow this 3 or 4 times daily for a few weeks.

Cold Spoons

Have you wondered that the spoons in your kitchen,which you use for eating,can also be used to rid of dark-circles? If not, then you need to try this immediately:

  • Chill 5 or 6 metal spoons in your refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Hold the rounded portion of one of the cold spoons against your eye for a few minutes until the spoon becomes warm.
  • As the spoon warms, replace it with another cold one from the refrigerator.

Pillow Prop

Dark-circles can be due to retention of fluid under your eyes during night.You can prop your head with extra pillows while sleeping to prevent the fluid from pooling and this is probably one of the most feasible and noteworthy remedies to ward off the wizards of dark-circles from your life.
