2 Eat right: Diet contribute a lot to the way your skin looks. Get your doctor to check if you have iron deficiency as that can affect blood circulation. Dark circles can be a result of lack of nutrients transported by the blood.
3 Moisturise well: Use a good quality moisturizer under your eyes. Read the label for ingredients. Choose a cream that has vitamin C ,K and alpha hydroxy.
4 Sun guard is a must: Never step out of home without using a sunscreen of atleast SPF 30. Use the sunscreen well around the delicate eye area and don’t forget to wear sunglasses when you go out in the sun.
5 Home remedies: Home remedies can come in handy to get rid of stubborn dark circles. Put used tea bags in the freezer, allow them to sit for half-an-hour and then place them on your eyes for 10 minutes. Ingredients found in potato and cucumber are also effective to reduce dark circles. Soak cotton balls in cold potato juice or apply cool cucumber slices over your eyes to rejuvenate them and get rid of the unsightly dark circles.
