10+1 Home Remedies For Dark Circles
1. Mask with parsley
Perhaps the most effective mask, since vitamin C, chlorophyll and vitamin K found in abundance in parsley, helps reduce the swelling under the eyes and helps to “lighten” the skin color in that area. Throw a bunch of parsley coarsely chopped (preferably organic) into a bowl and squeeze the leaves with a wooden spoon until the juices of all the leaves are removed. Pour a spoonful of warm water over the parsley and mix well. When the water cools down, dip 2 cotton on the mixture, lie down, put the cotton on the eyes and leave for 10 minutes. Repeat the process twice a week and in 3 weeks you will see a difference.
2. Massage with vitamin E oil
Use a drop of vitamin E oil on your finger and gently massage around your eyes to increase circulation in the area and tighten the skin.
3. Mask with honey and milk
Take 1 teaspoon of powdered milk and stir with 1 teaspoon of honey. Apply the mask under the eyes and let it dry for 15-20 minutes.
4. Chamomile and milk mask
Mix equal amounts of chamomile and milk and place the mixture in ice cubes. After freezing, take an ice cube for each eye and massage with circular motions. Repeat the procedure 2-3 times a week.
