Get Rid of Dark Circles

By Aniela / September 6, 2007

As you get older, you probably start noticing the dark circles forming under your eyes. You could even be in your teens and notice that you have dark circles. This could simply be from fatigue, lack of sleep, or stress. A lot of times, dark circles under the eyes can run in the family.

So how do you get rid of dark circles under the eyes? Well first of all, you start taking better care of yourself. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. Make sure you get your full 8 hours of sleep, and don't stress so much. You cannot go on to the next level until you firmly establish these rules for yourself.

The next thing you can do is the old-fashioned cucumber over the eyes trick. It works wonderfully because the cucumber juice helps get rid of the dark circles under the eyes. So place two fresh slices of cucumber onto your closed eyes and lay back for about half an hour. Repeat this process every day and you will soon start to see results.


If you don't have time to do this, go out a buy a good cream or serum for under the eyes. A lot of companies make them now…some cheaper, some more expensive, but they're all pretty much expensive because most of them work. My favorite that I have used so far is Dior's and it got rid of my dark circles in just days. All you have to do is apply a little of the gel/cream under your eyes before bed, and in the morning.
