Natural Skin Care Remedies for Dark Circles Under the Eyes
Dark eye circles, also known as periorbital dark circles, are an unsightly skin condition occurring around the thin skin surrounding the eyes and may be accompanied by puffiness. They have been compared to varicose veins, as they are typically an inherited trait; transparent skin can display the blood vessels around the eyes. This condition can be triggered by allergies as well, since rubbing and scratching itchy eyes can cause dark blemishes to form. Other contributors to dark eye circles are anemia, fatigue, liver problems, and age.
If you have dark circles under your eyes, treatment from most mainstream solutions suggests make-up and cosmetics, a very temporary solution for dark circles under eyes. Treatment stories on our page have happier endings, suggesting lasting cures such as oil pulling, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and recommended dietary changes as home remedies for dark circles.

[NAY] Almond oil may work for tired eyes but life long dark circles it does not work for at all. It is nice on the skin but after 1 year of using almond oil, I can 100% say it does not work for people that have dark circles from childhood.

[YEA] I've been using almond oil on a cotton ball to remove eye makeup for nearly a year now and it is simply fantastic! It removes mascara and any other eye makeup gently and easily. It also has made my eyelashes softer and I have no dark under eye circles anymore. It's also fairly cheap and the bottle lasts a very long time!Replied by Deol
