Raw potatoes also contain extremely high bleaching properties, and that is why they are one of the most popular dark circle removers.
Grate 1 or 2 potatoes (depending on their size) into a cloth. Squeeze the juice from the potatoes into a bowl. Dip a cotton ball into the potato juice and dab under the eyes. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off with cool water. Repeat as necessary.
Turmeric contains curcumin which has anti-aging, antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce inflammation and clear pigmentation and other flaws.
