There is no one-size-fits-all remedy to get rid of dark circles under the eyes, as there is no universal reason for their formation. Lack of sleep, nasal congestion, allergies, heredity, impaired pigmentation are just some of the possible factors contributing to the appearance of circles. And in each case, there are ways to return the skin to its natural color and freshness.
It is necessary
- Tea bags
- Grater or blender
- Sea salt or soda
Lack of sleep
Of course, the best way is to get a good night's sleep, but what if you didn't sleep yesterday, but you need to look good today? Cucumber masks work well for tired and puffy eyes. Slice a large, cool cucumber across, lie on the bed and place the slices over your closed eyes. Keep the cucumber compresses on for 10 to 15 minutes.
Another vegetable, potatoes, helps well in this case. Peel one raw potato and chop on a grater or blender. Place the potato gruel on the area around your closed eyes for half an hour. Naturally, this mask also requires a horizontal position of your body.
Cold compresses from tea bags are a time-tested remedy. It can be green tea, black or chamomile, but never mint or citrus.
It is not surprising that a banal runny nose can also cause the appearance of edema and circles under the eyes, because the blood supply in this area is disrupted, and the blood vessels darken and dilate. Get rid of the runny nose and the circles will go away.
Gargling with saline is an easy home remedy for congestion. Stir ¼ teaspoon sea salt or baking soda in two glasses of warm water. Pour the solution into a narrow-necked container, preferably a special pump for rinsing the nose. Tilt your head and pour half of the water into one nostril so that the water comes out through the other. Repeat the procedure on the other nostril.
The skin under the eyes is extremely thin and any problems with blood vessels immediately begin to "see through" through it. Add more vitamin K to your diet if you have blood clotting problems and dark spots are caused by capillary loss. Vitamin K is found in salads, various cabbage, walnuts. It is important to remember that this vitamin does not tolerate heat treatment.
Drink plenty of water. Dehydrated skin becomes even drier and thinner.
Wear sunglasses all year round. The sun increases the production of melanin, which means it is not good for you. You can use a high SPF cream instead of glasses. Use under-eye whitening masks. Fresh homemade cottage cheese is perfect, which will not only give the skin whiteness, but also nourish it.
If you sleep well, you have excellent heredity and good blood vessels, and there are still bruises under the eyes, perhaps you have a latent allergy. Try to eliminate foods high in preservatives from your diet, avoid chemicals, and see a dermatologist.
