(NaturalNews) A lot of women these days put up with dark circles under their eyes or puffy eyes. Underlying factors that cause this condition include inherited traits, cigarette smoking, inadequate hours of sleep, improper diet, excessive alcohol drinking, pollution and allergies.

Having to live day to day with circles under the eyes can be exasperating and uncomfortable for many. Because the first thing other people notice is your face, they will surely see those puffy eyes first and that does not make a good first impression. You appear very tired, old and haggard-looking.

Fortunately, this can be addressed easily with inexpensive natural remedies right at home.

Cold tea bags

There are numerous ways to reduce dark circles under the eyes and puffiness within the home. Among common methods is the application of cooled tea bags on the eyes. Immerse the tea bags in cold water. Let this sit on the eyes for about fifteen minutes. They are sure to refresh the area underneath and help diminish puffy eyes.

Cucumber juice

Aside from the common cooled cucumber slices, cucumber juice serves as an effective toner and astringent for the skin. Spread this liquid around the eyes for about ten to fifteen minutes. Wash the area with tepid water. This always helps in lessening the strain that is apparent on the eyes.

Orange juice

Not only is this a great source of vitamin C, but it also serves as a convenient preparation to eradicate any sign of tiredness on the eyes. Prepare a mixture with orange juice and glycerine. Dab some of the mixture on the affected area of the eyes three times a week. Soon after, the appearance around the eyes will noticeably improve.

Tomato paste

Households always have tomatoes in the kitchen. The fruit is used not only in lots of food preparation but also in home remedies. Among the best concoctions to treat the dark circles of the eyes is tomato paste. This is made using fresh tomatoes, some lemon juice, a small amount of turmeric powder and gram flour. Spread some of the mixture around the eyes and allow it to stay for the next ten to fifteen minutes. Do this natural treatment on a daily basis and results will be apparent in time. Puffiness and dark circles will eventually go away.

Mint leaves

Application of crushed mint leaves can help in reducing dark circles under the eyes. The prepared paste is applied on the affected areas. Let it sit for ten to fifteen minutes then wash off with lukewarm water. This treatment soothes and relaxes the eyes.

Almond oil has always been handy in the management of circles under the eyes.

Spread some of the prepared paste comprised of almond oil and milk around the eyes. This can be done before going to sleep, leaving the paste on for the rest of the night. In the morning, you will feel invigorated and your skin refreshed after washing off the treatment.

Get plenty of rest and sleep

As recommended, people should have at least eight hours of undisturbed and restful sleep. This is especially necessary for individuals who have puffy eyes or circles under their eyes.

With these home remedies, you no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of having dark circles and puffy eyes. And these can be done without having to spend a lot of money.
