They may first appear in childhood and this could point to them being inherited. Dark circles have also been attributed to allergies and nasal congestion which dilates certain blood vessels around the eyes and causes them to darken. Other possibilities include stress, anemia, oversleeping, eczema, crying, too much salt in ones diet, aging, and excessive drinking, smoking, or sun exposure. In addition, they may also be a symptom of a more serious condition, such as liver disease or hypothyroidism. Many products and treatments have been touted as effective at making dark under eye circles go away. However, most of them are ineffective and don’t really do anything and some may even damage the fragile skin under our eyes.
If you want to try an affordable, simple, all natural way to eliminate dark circles then try this at home remedy. All you need is baking soda, hot water or tea, and a few cotton pads. Take a glass of either tea or hot water and mix in well one teaspoon of baking soda. Then soak two cotton pads in the solution and gently place them under your eyes for a total of 15 minutes. After you remove the pads wash your face and finish up with an application of moisturizer.
Baking soda has been used in a number of at home beauty and personal care treatments. It also works well to both clean and help fade scars caused by acne. The recipe and directions for an exfoliating baking soda acne scrub are as follows. Combine one teaspoon of baking soda and a drop of water on a plate and mix it up well. You do not want to add too much water so slowly add one drop at a time, adding more if needed, until it has the consistency of a paste and not a runny liquid. Gently massage the mixture onto your face and let it sit for a couple of minutes or until it hardens, then wash your face well. Over time this solution should fade any scars as it gently cleans your pores and skin. It can be applied nightly before bed and many people have reported that this is helpful and works!
Baking soda works well at cleaning because it is effective at regulating pH since it’s not overly acidic or too alkaline, rather it falls right in the middle. Thus, when it interacts with things that are either acidic or alkaline it naturally reacts to neutralize them. This is what makes baking soda so great at combating acidic odors that make our fridges smell. It also works well to maintain balanced, neutral pH levels and when it’s added to water and applied to things it serves to make stuff even more clean. Best of all it’s extremely affordable, natural, and it doesn’t harm the environment like most of the ingredients that are found in beauty products do. Try one of these applications tonight before bed and see the results for yourself!
