Even though the occurance of dark circles is very common among older people, they can also appear at an early age. No matter at what age, both men and women who have bags under their eyes feel uncomfortable and unattractive.
The occurance of dark circles is most commonly a hereditarty issue. Moreover, they can worsen with age due to the fact that as we grow older, our skin thins and loses subcutaneous fat, which in turn exposes the blood vessels lying beneath the skin. However, there are many other factors that can cause dark circles under the eyes, such as: allergies, pollution, improper diet, excessive drinking, excessive smoking and an inadequate sleep. Moreover, menstruation, menopause, pregnancy or hormonal imbalances can also contribute to dark circles.
Even though the market offers us many different cosmetic products that are supposed to minimize the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, unfortunately they are either too expensive or too harmful for our delicate skin. So, instead of using unknown chemicals on your face, try using natural remedies which will treat this problem more efficiently.[nextpage]
The best solution to lighten your skin under the eyes is almond oil because it is a rich source of nourishing vitamins and minerals. As a result of its qualities, almond oil can replenish and rejuvenate the delicate skin and keep it moisturized.
All you have to do is to massage 5-6 drops of almond oil into the delicate skin under the eyes before bedtime. You should leave the oil during the night to act, and the next morning, wash it off with cold water. Repeat this method on a daily basis until the dark circles disappear almost entirely.
Another solution is to prepare a mixture with 5-6 drops of almond oil and one tablespoon of raw honey, apply it on the skin under the eyes before bedtime and leave it to act during the night. In the morning, rinse it off with lukewarm water. Repeat daily until you get the desired results.
