The coolness will have the same effect

Dark circles and puffiness under the eyes can be a nuisance that affects many women and men at some point in their lives. Could be cause by many things like stress, lack of sleep, illness, allergies or even plain old genetics. Home remedies Do not rub your eyes. Get a good night's sleep. Drink lots of water. Protect your eyes from the sun. Use an under-eye cream. Apply concealer. The skin around your eyes is very thin and sensitive; excessive rubbing or wiping can cause irritation, puffiness and dark circles. Rest is possibly the most effective treatment for dark circles and puffiness under the eyes The recommended quantity of water is eight 8 oz. glasses a day. Consume that amount and more, if possible. Drinking plenty of water helps flush your body of toxins and salt, which can reduce puffiness and skin discoloration. Being fully hydrated also makes your skin look fresh and healthy all over. Exposure to the sun's UV rays increases melanin production in the skin, which causes tanning. Exposing the delicate skin around your eyes to the sun can darken the circles under your eyes. Wear large sunglasses during the day, regardless of how bright it is outside. Make natural compresses. When placed over the eyes for 15-20 minutes, chilled potato and cucumber slices will help reduce swelling and increase blood circulation. Rinse your eyes with cool water and pat your face dry when finished with the application. Take about a tablespoon of natural plain yogurt (Make sure it's plain, it has no sweetness to it). Place it under your eyes and leave it for a good fifteen minutes. Rinse your face and use a fragrance-free moisturizer. Make some green tea. Tea serves two purposes. First, drinking tea can provide anti-oxidants that will help prevent additional dark circles. Secondly, the tea bags should be chilled and then placed on your closed eye lids. The coolness will have the same effect as the cucumber or potato, but will also add tannin which can help reduce puffiness even more effectively. Use an under-eye cream. Many popular skin care brands make creams for dark circles. If you can, purchase one and apply it before you go to bed at night and again in the morning. If you don't have a lightening under-eye cream, use a skin cream made for the face that contains vitamin K. Sometimes all that is left to do is to apply a flesh-colored concealer, a shade or two lighter than your skin tone, to the under-eye area. This will take away any residual darkness and help camouflage leftover puffiness. If all else fails there is always all-natural ingredient eye concealer from places like "whole foods". You're all set! Lois
