How To Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

woman dark circlesSometimes for reasons that are completely out of your control, like having a job that requires late nights or an unavoidable need to party until the crack of dawn but when the dark circles make you look like a deranged badger then its time to take emergency measures. Unfortunately there’s no effective way to get rid of them unless you peel off your skin. But here are some remedies you can try.

You can put raw potato or cucumber slices on your eyes. This is probably the most popular remedy, one your mom undoubtedly recommends although it’s enough you don’t ask when or why she would ever need it. Unfortunately the cooling effect of the cucumber doesn’t work fast enough to get rid of the dark circles in time for a date. In which case you can try some concealers at your local department store.

You should test the best colors before you buy any concealers. Choose one that’s a shade lighter than your foundation. If your circles are dark enough to look like your wearing a mask, go 2 shades lighter. Some of great concealers are Revlon New Complexion Concealers, Estee Lauder Smoothing Skin Concealer and Neutrogena Smoothing Skin Stick.

Now these are all after the fact that you have these hideous dark circles but the adage that an ounce of prevention is better than the cure is particularly apt in this case. If you really want to prevent puffy eyes and circle under the eyes then sleep well. Its that simple. There is no substitute for getting a good night’s sleep. You should also avoid getting stoned drunk every night. Or keep drinking water the whole night if you are out late. Drinking a lot of water can help prevent the dark circles.

Now if all else fails you can contact a doctor about getting laser treatment. Apparently lasers can thicken the skin by producing more collagen and thus you are less likely to see veins. But that would require a fortune that most of us mere mortals can’t access. A good night’s sleep is free for everyone.
