Six quick remedies for under eyes

Hard days at work or stress coupled with luck of sleep can result in baggy under eyes. Sometimes they can also be a result of dehydration or seasonal allergies, and while this is not a serious skin problem, it does affect appearance making women look older and worn out. Many of us use make up to tackle this problem but when it comes to eye care our kitchens are richer than our make-up kits! There are several home remedies that can do the trick and actually aid your skin much better than make- up can, resulting into healthy soft and moisturised skin around our eyes. Lets explore a few quick kitchen supplies we can stretch further.



Cut a quarter cucumber into slices and put them in the fridge. This also gives them a skin cooling effect. When you are ready to relax place them on the affected area for about 20 to 30 minutes. Do this daily for about a week or add to your regimen, 2 to 3 times a week.


Cut potatoes into slices like you would the cucumbers and follow the same refrigeration and application process

 Almond Oil

Almonds are one of our favorites. Not only are they great for snacks but regular application of almond oil can also help get rid of puffiness and redness. Just dab a little under your eyes overnight before bedtime and wash and moisturise in the morning as normal. You can also make this a part of your skincare regimen as the area around your eyes is usually the first part of the face to get wrinkles. This beauty trick can help keep that area soft and moisturised.


Milk contains lactic acid and anti oxidants, so its not just great for smoothies it great for direct application to skin! It soothes and also moisturises. Moisten a cotton ball with milk and dab the area under your eyes

Tea bags

Don’t throw away those used tea bags. Instead put them in the fridge. Later when you are ready to relax, put them over your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes.

The skin under your eyes is really thin and requires regular moisturising. It’s important to make this a part of your beauty regimen. Cheaper alternatives to eye creams are almond oil and organic coconut oil. Applying these overnight can help fight puffiness and fine lines.
