I understand that the cucumber and its juice are excellent for the skin and the eyes. Cucumbers help reduce puffiness of the skin (or bags) below the eyes; and they also lighten the dark circles under the eyes.
Using cucumbers for the eyes is not just a home remedy, they are also used in spas and by beauty specialists for facial treatments.
When you apply cucumber slices to your closed eyes, you’ll find that they have a soothing and softening effect on the skin. In just ten minutes, the cucumbers will cleanse the skin and cause the skin under the eyes to look brighter, smoother and more relaxed.
Don’t have cucumbers? I read that potato slices will work just the same. You should also drink more water to cleanse your body of impurities which could have contributed to dark eye circles.
Also stay out of the sun. If you’re going to be outside, use a sunscreen to avoid making those dark eye circles darker.
