How to Remove Dark Circles With Under Eye Treatments - 6 Dark Circles Under Eyes Treatments and Tips

Updated on October 5, 2015

Get Rid Of Dark Circles and Baggy Eyes

Can You Remove Dark Circles From Under Eyes?

The eyes have been an issue for many of us for years. When we first decided we had a problem is when we saw the first wrinkle or bag underneath our eyes.If you're prone to dark circles and in poor health you may not be able to remove dark circles from under your eyes, but you can:

  • minimize
  • avoid
  • prevent future issues.

You may say that you know this already but did you know that every-time you rub underneath your eyes outward (away from nose) you are causing puffy eyes by pulling that delicate skin away from the muscle? Well it's true. The muscle around your eyes is in a donut shape that goes in a circle in the direction of your eyebrows.

Rub your fingers all the way around your eyes starting with your eyebrow and ending at your eyebrow in the direction of the hair growth and you can see why rubbing in the wrong direction is disastrous later on in life. It's like rubbing a cat in the wrong direction everyday... Ugly!

Now you know why the very wealthy have puffy eyes and no one seems to know how to fix or avoid this (besides surgery). Just imagine the makeup artist that doesn't have the knowledge of an ethetician and are ruining the health of the delicate eye tissue by trying to hide the damage they are causing everyday by rubbing concealor on the wrong way!

Not having the knowledge about your eye muscles in now not an issue for you if you chose to use it. Now when you wash your face gently move your fingers around your eyes to stimulate these muscles and prevent drooping of the skin.

7 Under Eye Circles Best Preventive Methods

  1. The first thing your going to do is stop with the old habits that have been ruining our eyes and causing them to bag.
  2. Removing eye make-up properly- When removing eye-makeup you will apply your makeup remover on a pad and stroke downward on your eyelid and rub gently inward underneath toward your nose. Finish up by using the same method with clear water to remove any residue.
  3. Applying make-up properly- When using sponge or fingertips to apply concealer or foundation under eyes you will apply inward to avoid pulling. This is where more damage is done.
  4. Eye Lift Treatments should be added under your spf and night creams. Apply gently on this delicate skin. Preferably by dabbing lightly with fingertip or Q-tip.
  5. Applying eye cream- You will always apply eye cream by using a dotting method with your clean fingertips after your face is cleansed and toned. Your eye cream should have spf 15 in the day and without sun protection at night. The same with your moisturizers.
  6. Rubbing Eyes inward- Stop rubbing those eyes outward! Be gentle when you are tired and experiencing dry eyes. Instead apply soothing compresses to relieve them (cuccumber juice works)try cool water or witch hazel.
  7. Eye Exercises- Hold eyelids down with fingers, raise eyebrows and hold for a count of 5. Do this 5 times 3 times a day. This will tighten muscles and produce youthful results.

Best Product for Dark Circles Under Eyes

There are other ways to prevent your eyes from becoming puffy or bagging that can help. But when your skin is pulled from the muscles skin cream will not re-attach it. A professional will massage your face with the proper movements to stimulate the eye and face muscles. Here are a few tips to help with eye puffiness:

  • cucumber pads
  • cool compresses
  • naps/sleep
  • Preparation H/Tucks for emergencies- Secrets of the Stars/Models

The main thing to remember is you will be using light touches when dealing with the skin beneath your eyes to prevent further damage. Keeping your skin in the best possible shape will help your skin and facial muscles reform.

Causes Of Dark Circles Under Eyes

Our skin can become dehydrated from many reasons; it is important to stop or decrease harmful habits

  • alcohol
  • smoking
  • caffeine
  • drugs
  • exhaustion
  • exhaustion
  • fatigue
  • stress

Hereditary Dark Eye Circles

Some people naturally have thin skin and dark skin beneath their eyes due to their family heritage. This is not a reason not to try natural remedies and bad habits to alleviate the darkness under the eyes. There are many that apply remedies and good habits that are happier today.

  • Dark skin with even darker skin beneath eyes.
  • Thin skin which shows muscles and vessels which appear darker under eyes.
  • Shadowing due to sunken eyes.

Without an actual examination it is impossible to say what the exact cause of your dark circles are and what the treatment should be. If the darkness changes from season to season or day to day there are reasons you may be able to control to lighten your dark circles besides makeup and surgery.

Your face will reform every 20 days or so with the proper skin maintenance. The proper skin maintenance will allow your facial skin to age well. In order for your skin to age well it has to be slightly acidic 4.5-5.5 ph balance. Only a toner will re-balance your skin when we reach adulthood.

There are treatments for acne, rocesea, wrinkles and age spots. No worries if you have to use more than one ust wait 30 seconds before applying the next.
  4. Moisturizer- You will now apply your moisturizer. During the day you will use a moisturizer designed for your skin type with spf protection and at night you will use a moisturizer without skin protection.

      @Vishnu: I hope you have talked to a doctor about your eyes. No one can give you medical advice except a physician. Your eyes are a very delicate and important resource. Good luck

      @FemaleAddaSocial- I think the sheet mask are great on occasion when you need a little pampering while your traveling or visiting and or just don't have time for your weekly treatment.

      It is only called a mask because of the way it looks, so don't try to stop you weekly mask just yet. The sheet mask are useful but shouldn't be used in exchange for a good skincare regimen.

      Thanks for your question Nida. Most families have similar eating habits or in some case living habits such as working long hours with less sleep. These traits can cause dark eyes that seem to run in families for generations. Thin skin usually looks darker. You must stay hydrated.

      Any professional would have to ask you plenty of evaluating questions to help with the cause of your dark circles. Refrigerate spoons for 15 min,Dip a cool spoon in almond oil, vitamin e and rub gently under your eyes until it warms up. Drink plenty of water. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for reading Linda E. If your eyes feel bruised and sore you may have some sort of vitamin issue. Some vitamins store in our liver when used together. Some vitamins have to be alternated.

      Take all of the vitamins to Vitamin world or Whole Foods and talk to a specialist that can tell you how to efficiently take your vitamins if you are taking many. Check with your physician, eyes are very important.

      In the mean time drink plenty of lemon water or 8 oz water with a teaspoon of Bragg Apple Cider vinegar to help cleanse your system out of impurities. Blessing to you!

      @sana- I'm glad you mentioned your age. A lot of people notice a lot of changes after to teen years such as weight gain and you got it dark circles and blotchy skin.

      Our body shows us how we've been caring for our bodies years before. I recommend you to firstly drink more water (purified). Your skin may need to be hydrated. Next add the vitamin B12 as a daily supplement.

      Darkness under the eyes can come from a deficiency of some sort so eat right and get the proper rest. Lack of sleep is a deficiency. Good Luck!

      I am only 21 years. But all of a suden - have started getting dark circles and its freaking me out. I applied coconut oil around my eyes but its not really working. Is there any other natural method to get rid of dark circles?

    • Elearn4Life profile image

      Darlene Matthews 5 years ago

      Mahi thanks for your question. My recommendation is that you be sure to use a SPF and reapply several times a day. If your prone to skin tone issues use a SPF with vitamin C. If you also have acne use a gel exfoliate treatment for acne before your water based SPF during the day and your nonclogging water based night cream in the evenings. You would then be removing the dead skin cells that cause dullness and clogged pores which cause pimples.
