My tips on how to make the under eye puffiness and dark circles disappear.
1. Get your beauty sleep and rest
Sleep and relaxing will help you to remove the sources of stress and anxiety. Giving you an overall fresher and youthful look. But yes – I know, it’s tough to find sleep and relax, if you’re having a busy schedule. But at least try it.
2. Stop smoking
Smoking causes vascular problems making your blood vessel appear more prominent and darker.
3. Use cucumber slices on your eyes
They are known to reduce the under eye puffiness.
4. Put black tea bags on your eyes
Black tea not only helps to reduce puffiness, it also is a natural disinfectant. As a student I worked as an assistant for an ophthalmologist and in addition to medicine we always recommended to use black tea bags, if the patients eyes were inflamed. Besides, you can read in many forums that chamomile tea also helps against under eye puffiness. But I would not recommend using chamomile on your eyes, since it has a drying out effect.
5. Use a frozen spoon
Put a spoon for about 10 minutes into your freezer. Then put it over the circles. Bye, bye under eye puffiness!

6. Apply hemorrhoid cream on your dark circles
I tried it and it really made the under eye puffiness disappear. But I do believe that if the cream gets into your eyes it can be dangerous and eye irritation can occur. Hence I would not recommend using it on the especially delicate skin under your eyes. There is a reason why they don’t sell it as an eye cream (= common sense).
7. Drinking more water and cutting down on salt
A diet rich on salt and not drinking enough water can also be a cause of dark circles.
8. Use a good concealer
Sun exposure, pigmentation irregularities, thinning from age and heredity can also be cause of dark circles. In this case, a really good concealer can be the solution.
