The under-eye area is one of the most fragile and delicate parts of your body, and needs special attention and care in order to look bright. However, most of us ignore this part of the face so the fine lines, dark circles and puffy eyes often go unnoticed or are simply blamed on genetics.

If you’re one of those few who do take care of their under-eye area, you probably have an eye cream or serum sitting on your beauty shelf. While these will help hydrate the skin, hate to break it to you, they aren’t likely to get rid of stubborn dark circles. We know the struggle is real, that’s why we’ve found a hack that includes one of the best skincare ingredients found in nature – turmeric.

You will need:

1 tablespoon buttermilk

Small brush


diy turmeric under eye mask to get rid of dark circles

Step 01: Add the turmeric and buttermilk in a small bowl and mix well.

Step 02: Apply this concoction to the under-eye area in a large semi-circle using a small brush.

Step 03: Let the turmeric and buttermilk paste dry on your skin for about 15 minutes.

Step 04: Wash off with water or use a washcloth to carefully wipe off the mask and reveal glowing skin underneath.

Why it works?

Turmeric contains curcumin, a chemical compound that reduces UV damage, clears breakouts, and brightens the complexion. The brightening properties of turmeric bring an instant glow, while the buttermilk gently exfoliates dead skin cells off the skin.

Apart from this DIY mask, massage your eye area with a nourishing eye cream every night to get rid of dark circles and puffy eyes. The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Night Revival Eye Cream tackles fine lines, dark cirles and dullness to reveal healthy and bright under eye skin.
