Lie down, preferably in the morning, and leave the fresh, cool, damp, caffeinated tea bags (you can refrigerate them overnight) over your eyes for about 10-15 minutes. The tannin present in tea bags reduces swelling and discoloration.

: Put a spoon in the freezer and pour water into it. (Pouring water after you put it in the freezer makes sure you don't spill any) Let the water freeze. Then take it out and put it on the dark circles.


Use a potato:

Place an raw potato into a liquidiser and liquidise it. Scoop out and place the pureed potato on your closed eyes. Keep it there on for 30 minutes, then wash it off with warm water.
