And the best way to deal with it is eating clean. Incorporate more and more of citrus fruits and leafy veggies in your diet, not just to get that extra glow but to improve your blood circulation too.

3. Aloe vera gel is the miracle you need
When you can’t find anything else, try your favorite aloe gel. It’s the ultimate solution to almost all your skincare problems. It contains vitamin-e oils and nourishing properties that can help reduce puffiness under your eyes. All you have to do is not skip and keep trying it religiously for a week.
4. No Makeup in Bed
Sleeping with your makeup on is like punishing your skin. Because when you sleep with your eye makeup, it clogs your pores which further leaves you with bumps and puffy eyes. Hence, it is always suggested to clean your makeup first and then go to bed.
5. Used tea bags for your eye bags
Why throw away your used tea bags when they can very well be put to use? Just keep them in the refrigerator and freeze them for 10-15 mins. Once they’re freezing cold, take them out and put them over your eyes for some time. Repeat the same activity every day for a week and you’ll see the difference.

6. Gentle oil massage
Put some good amount of almond oil and coconut oil in a bowl. Mix them well and then, with the help of your hands, massage it underneath your eyes. Try this procedure every night for a week and see the desired result. FYI, coconut oil is rich in Vitamin E and therefore can moisturize your under-eye skin well. On the other hand, Almond oil is rich in Vitamin K and easily help you get rid of those pesky dark circles.
7. Freshly grated potato for panda eyes
Take one medium-sized potato and shred it with the help of a grater. Collect the grated potato in a bowl and freeze it in the refrigerator for a couple of minutes. Potato contains an enzyme called catecholase that can help in lightening your skin tone and dark spots (since it has natural bleaching properties).

8. Ice pack works great too!
A nice ice pack can give your eyes just the needed relief by reducing the inflammation of the blood vessels. Wrap a few ice cubes in a cotton cloth and gently dab it under your eyes. Repeat the activity twice or thrice. But make sure you go easy since the area around the eyes is very sensitive.
9. Cool down with Cucumber
You remember your mommy turning into a zombie with that multani mitti pack and cucumber slices on her eyelids? Well, that’s exactly what you’ve got to do. Just take a few slices of cucumber and freeze them in the refrigerator for a few hours. And then cover your eyes with those cool cucumber slices for 5-10 mins. Repeat the same activity over and over for a week and see how your dark circles vanish.
