eye skin careBags of money, bags of groceries, and bags of new clothes are all things everyone wants to have but when it comes to having bags under your eyes— that’s probably low on your list of wants (next to getting a cavity.) If you have bags under our eyes and want to try to naturally get rid of their appearance, try these three all-natural remedies. Read on to learn more.

  1. Cucumber

Cucumber isn’t just good on salad and to spruce up water. In fact, cucumber also contains ingredients like ascorbic acid which work to depuff your eyes and make you feel more revitalized. To use cucumber for your eyes, you can put slices of fresh cucumber over your eyes at night, or you can purchase eye creams that have cucumber in them.

  1. Tea Bags

This all-natural method may sound a bit bizarre, but it’s worth trying. Placing tea bags on your eyes can help to soothe the puffiness and get rid of dark circles. Containing herbs and natural detoxifying agents, both green and black tea are ideal at helping you naturally get rid of those circles under your eyes. So, how do you apply tea bags to your eyes? Place your tea bags in lukewarm water for about 30 seconds, gently wring them out so that you don’t have tea dripping down your face, and then apply them to your eyes. Leave them on for about 5-10 minutes.

  1. Drink Water

Dark circles and puffiness around your eyes are primarily caused by things like lack of sleep and dehydration. As the ultimate way to get rid of these bags, we encourage our patients to drink more water. By hydrating your body, you can moisturize your skin and restore the water to the area under your eyes.
