Dark under eye circles are a beauty issue for lots of women and men. The unsightly blemishes are undesirable and commonly viewed as a sign of fatigue or lack of sleep, but there are a number of other possible causes. If they first appear in childhood this could point to them being inherited. Dark circles have also been attributed to allergies and nasal congestion which dilates certain blood vessels around the eyes and causes them to darken. Other possibilities include stress, anemia, oversleeping, eczema, crying, too much salt in ones diet, aging, and excessive drinking, smoking, or sun exposure. In more worrisome situations, they may also be a symptom of a serious condition, such as liver disease or hypothyroidism. While many products and treatments have been touted as effective at making dark under eye circles go away, most of them are ineffective and don’t really do anything, and some may even damage the fragile skin under our eyes.
If you want to try an affordable, simple, all natural way to eliminate dark circles then try this at home remedy. All you need is baking soda, water, a teaspoon and small bowl. Place one teaspoon of baking soda in the bowl and mix in some water so that you create a runny paste. Start off with just a little tiny bit of water and add more as needed until you achieve the desirable texture. To see exactly what that looks like make sure to refer to Darsh’s Bites excellent video tutorial. Use the back of the teaspoon to apply the paste and carefully smear it onto your under eye circles. You can also use your fingertips to daub it gently on, either way works and is fine. Wait until the paste fully dries, about 5-10 minutes, and then take it off. Use a soft cloth or baby wipes to wipe the dried, crusty baking soda off before you wash your face so that it doesn’t end up in your eyes.
The key is to make sure that you don’t get any baking soda in, or too close to, your eyes because it can easily irritate them and end up making the dark circles appear even worse. Also, be as gentle as possible when working and touching around your eye because the skin there is super delicate and susceptible to damage.
Baking soda has been used in a number of at home beauty and personal care treatments. It works well at cleaning because it’s effective at regulating pH since it’s not overly acidic or too alkaline. Instead, it falls right in the middle, so when it interacts with things that are either acidic or alkaline it naturally reacts to neutralize them. That’s what makes baking soda so great at maintaining balanced, neutral pH levels. Best of all it’s extremely affordable, natural, and doesn’t harm the environment like most of the ingredients that are found in beauty products do. Try this application tonight before bed and see the results for yourself!
