Best Home Remedy for Dark Circles Under Eyes-Causes & Treatment

Dark Circles Natural Treatment – Cure & Causes.

Hello everyone, Today I am going to share few home remedies on a very common problem faced by almost all people, of all ages, i.e Dark Circles. I know many people who have dark circles, & want a real good way to remove them, because the whole face, its glow, looks dull if one has dark circles. So I thought why not to write a post on this, sharing my knowledge with you all by telling some of the best home remedies to cure dark circles naturally.


Before coming to the cure lets take a look at few things which result in giving us dark circles.

  • Lack of sleep / Insufficient sleep.
  • Heredity.
  • Working Overtime.
  • Mental Stress.
  • Deficiency of nutrients.
  • Allergy.
  • Dehydration.

I have listed above some of the causes of dark circles, but the most common out of these are Lack of Sleep & Heredity. Now a days the life is so busy, schedule is so tight that people hardly get time to sleep. Secondly it’s a very common saying that if your parents have dark circles, you are very much prone to get them, once you reach their age. I think its almost true, many people get dark circles because of heredity.


After getting a brief knowledge about Dark Circles Causes, now lets come to its treatment-How to Cure Dark Circles naturally at home.

I am listing few of the very effective home remedies to remove dark circles. At last, I will be listing the 2 most effective & the best home remedies out of whole lot. These all remedies are tried & tested by me or my friend, then only I am able to come to below conclusion.

Home Remedies for Dark Circles.

ü      Take 2 Cucumber slices, (preferred if refrigerated)  keep them on closed eyes & relax for about 20 minutes.

ü      Take a Potato & cut it into slices. Now take 2 slices in both hands & rub them under each eye for about 5-10 minutes. Doing this regularly for 2 weeks will give you visible results.

ü      Take few drops of any branded pure Rose Water on a cotton ball. Swipe two different balls under each eye. Keep rubbing cotton gently under eyes for about 1-2 minutes. Do this daily before sleeping every night for 3-4 weeks to see visible results.

ü      Don’t throw Tea Bags after making tea, instead place them under your eyes for 10-15 minutes. Doing this regularly for 2-3 weeks will help in curing dark circles.

ü      Dip 2 cotton balls in Orange juice & keep them under each eye for 15 mins.

ü      Last but not the least, drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water everyday, because deficiency of water in body results into many problems, Dark Circles being one.

Best Two

Now let me disclose best two remedies, these are

v     One with rose water, i.e dipping cotton ball in it & rubbing over & under eyes. You can even keep them above closed eyes for 10-15 min. This will not only help in removing dark circles but also in curing dark eyelids. This was actually suggested to me a beautician & I have actually seen visible results with it.

v     Second is rubbing potato slice under eyes for 5-10 minutes.

Along with this here are few tips like, always apply good sunscreen before going out, decrease salt intake & take proper sleep. Following any of the above suggested home remedy regularly along with tips will definitely help you in curing dark circles.

NOTE – Though all these home remedies are all natural, but please take your own precautions, while using them. Discontinue use immediately on any sort of allergy, reaction or irritation.
