The under-eye area is delicate and the effects of stress usually first appear here. Sunken eyes are a result of ageing, stress or even an underlying health concern. Dehydration and poor diet can also lead to the problem of hollow eyes and it almost never goes away on its own.
So, how does one get rid of this issue? Well, for starters, getting enough sleep, making a few lifestyle tweaks and turning to natural remedies listed below can help a great deal. So stop waiting and get scrolling….
The skin under your eyes can easily lose nutrients; nourishing this area is essential to get rid of sunken eyes. Almond oil is loaded with vitamin E and gently massaging your under-eye area with this oil several times a day can reduce the hollowness and darkness present. With regular application, your eye area will look much smoother and brighter.
Green tea bags
Antioxidants and flavonoids in green tea can improve blood circulation on the area it is applied to. Refrigerate two used green tea bags and place them on your eyes for 15-20 minutes to relax the eye muscles as well as soothe the nerves. Repeat this every night before bed or whenever you have time and notice the hollow below your eyes gradually fade.
Sandalwood has natural soothing and calming properties; when applied on the skin, it can treat several skin concerns including sunken eyes. For this, you can use sandalwood essential oil or powder to form a paste and apply on the under-eye area. It will soothe tired skin, reduce dark circles and get rid of the hollowness under your eyes.
Another easy yet effective natural remedy is applying potato juice on the under-eye area. It has the ability to improve skin discolouration and pigmentation to brighten the skin and make your eyes look more awake. Apply the juice directly and let it stay for 15-20 minutes before washing off, you will find a noticeable difference.
