This bright red coloured berry helps you to retain young skin, by allowing its constituent ascorbic acid to be absorbed more effectively into the skin, blurring and brightening the under eye region. Applying tomatoes onto your face is just about as effective as a fancy spa treatment, perhaps even more. Puree some tomatoes, together with a teaspoon of almond powder and brown sugar. Then, add a few spoons of raw honey and a few teaspoons of yoghurt to this mixture before applying it over the elliptical eye area and leaving it to dry. You can rinse it off after about 10 to 15 minutes.
Potatoes are amazing tuberous crops that can help in the brightening of the skin and in reducing hyper pigmentation. Due to the starch content present in them, they are efficient in reducing darkened skin zones as well. After peeling the potatoes, puree them into fine paste or grate them into fine filings. Then, make another paste from a teaspoon of turmeric and half a quarter of honey. Mix these two ingredients and apply the mask under your eyes. This treatment will not only help lighten the dark circles, but will also help tackle the problem of uneven skin tones.
Applying castor oil is an excellent way to add shine and glow to your face. It has subtle nourishing and moisturizing properties and is also pretty amazing at balancing pH levels, the key for reducing dark circles. Heat the castor oil and apply it over the darkened under eye zone. It helps rejuvenates the dull under eye skin, eventually reducing dark circles.
Cucumber is full of vitamins, minerals and cooling agents which help replenish and rejuvenate the eye bed. Cucumber is a powerhouse of a number of antioxidants such as vitexin, orientin, and cucurbitacins. These antioxidants help in softening and conditioning the skin, which also helps in treating dark circles under the eyes. A slice of cucumber will help you to get an even skin tone, without resulting in any odd discolorations and blemishes. It also helps lighten up pigmentations, fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, adhering to your skin's natural tone.
