There are some things concealer just can’t cover up and dark circles under your eyes are one of them. Getting more sleep and eating right can rid your face of the bags under your eyes, but that’s easier said than done. Check out this list of quick ways to battle raccoon eyes.
HEAD TO THE PRODUCE DEPARTMENT
Pick up a cucumber at your local grocery store and put a few slices over your eyes. This beauty ritual has been around for sometime, but it works. Cucumbers are full of antioxidants which helps reduce irritation and the cooling effect helps reduce swelling.
MAKE SOME TEA
Whip up a cup of chamomile tea and rather than drinking it, place the cooled tea bags over your eyes. Steep the tea bags in hot water like you normally would to drink it, then allow the tea bags to cool a bit and squeeze out some of excess water. Now kick back and place the tea bags over your eyes for about five minutes or until they are cold. Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties that will sooth your cranky eyes.
WASH THE SILVERWARE
To fight your baggy-eyed look, you don’t have to look further than your silverware drawer. Clean two teaspoons, refrigerate them for about ten minutes and hold them on the problem area for a minute or two. The spoons act as a cold compress, which reduces swelling.
