So why not apply some virgin coconut oil to the skin under your eyes after washing your skin? Massage the coconut oil gently to the skin to let it soak up and absorb into the skin.
2. Use Cucumbers For Something Other Than Your Salad
Perhaps you're skeptical about the use of cucumbers as a part of your skincare regimen. But, cucumbers are worthy of your consideration.
Cucumbers can reduce the puffiness under the eyes. They also help with discoloration that might be present, including dark circles. Leave the cucumbers for at least 10-15 minutes for the best effects!
3. Get a Face Massage or Facial
Have you ever considered getting a face massage or facial on a regular basis? A face massage can improve bags and discoloration under your eyes by improving blood circulation. But if you don't want to spend the money on a regular facial check out the Kansa Wand healing tool rooted in Ayurvedic medicine. It's the most natural, chemical-free way to lift up your face I've discovered so far!
4. Use a Quality Under-the-Eyes Cream
5. Use Rose Water
Soak two cotton balls in fresh rose water and apply them on your closed eyes. Let them stay for at least 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water later. Rose water is one of the simplest and yet most efficient cures for dark circles. You will see the changes in just a few minutes after your treatment has finished for sure!
6. Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is vital for any body function. It allows your body and mind to rest and relax after a busy day. But it is also beneficial for your eyes as well. If you want to prevent any puffiness and dark circles in the morning, then you should consider getting at least 8 hours of quality sleep each day!
7. Use the Right Pillow
What kind of a pillow and pillowcase you use, actually matters when it comes to dealing with puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. So you might reconsider getting a soft, comfy pillow to spend the night with rather than using a hard pillow. Also, using a pillowcase made of silk or cotton is a better idea.
Having to deal with puffy dark circles for an entire day, and perhaps even a couple of days can be quite the challenge.
Having people looking at you and wondering whether you're getting any sleep is not something that you want.
So why not try these 7 tips to remove bags under your eyes and prevent them from occurring ever again? It will take only a few minutes of self-care for you to reduce any chance of having to deal puffiness, bags or dark circles with the next day. The eyes are usually the first thing we notice about someone, so make sure yours don't make you look tired and run down.
