If people call you “racoon eyes”, it’s probably because you have dark circles under your eyes. But fear not, today it’s all about getting rid of dark and puffy eyes.
The area under your eye is very sensitive and densely packed with tiny capillaries that are prone to expending and thus becoming darker. There are many reasons behind all this and the lack of sleep and staring at a computer all day are not the main reasons. Nasal congestion, heredity, allergies, vitamin deficiency and reduced adrenal function are all potential contributors.
But how can we get rid of them?
There is no guarantee in those solutions, but they will surely help…
1- Take multi vitamins daily
2- Lower your salt intake
3- Quit smoking
4- Drink more water
5- Splash cold water in your face in the morning
6- Apply moist tea bag on your eyes for 10 minutes in the morning
7- Sleep 8 hours a day
8- Eat well (Anti-oxidants : fruits and vegetables )
9- Relax more
10- Nasal cleansing with saline solution
Other cosmetic solutions are also available like using an eye cream containing vitamin K and retinol or using a concealer that will camouflage the dark under-eye circles.
