What do you use (either homemade remedies or store bought products) to help reduce dark under eye circles?

I use herbal based product for the past couple of months to reduce my under eye dark circles.
I used to suffer from tremendous amount of dark circles all around my eyes and as a result, I used to look like an ugly duckling. Then my colleague referred me about Gold 24 under eye cream, which is absolutely herbal based product without having any side effect. Now I’m almost free from under eye dark circle.

I'm going to try it- thanks for the link. This under eye problem has plagued me my entire life- it probably won't work for me but heck what's another 20 bucks down the drain- LOL!

The reason that the undereye area appears dark is because of the thin skin in that area, so keeping the area moisturized and "plumped" helps. Sleep hydrates the skin, so dehydration and lack of sleep causes the area to appear darker. Iron deficiency can also contribute to darkness around the eye area. When applying anything around the eye area though, be careful to apply it along the lower part of the orbital bone, and not too close to the eye. The warmth from the skin causes it to "move", and get into the tear duct, especially while sleeping, which can result in puffiness.

A thin layer of aloe vera gel, topped with two cucumber slices works pretty good if you prefer more natural remedies.

I don't like putting products containing lots of strange preservatives so close to my eyes.

LOL!!! Cucumbers don't do much for my eyes- unfortunately- nothing helps all that much but maybe one day I'll find something!:)

Hahaha dragonfly! I always wonder about what the grocery people think when I buy just one cucumber... :O but YES,- they work great for soothing irritated eyes and reducing puffiness. I take 3 thin slices, and slice one into half circles, and press each half under the eye. Then take the other 2 slices and place on top of the lids. This also is great to do with a masque on the face, like yogurt and honey.

I first discovered the effectiveness of cucumbers many years ago, after a bad sunburn that also left my eyes puffy. (I also learned to stay out of the sun, which is the cause of most of what is thought of as "natural" aging, like premature wrinkling and "age" spots.) The cucumbers took the swelling down immediately, and I also used the half circles under the eyes with dampened cotton pads, on clients during facials. It works great with cucumbers also, and the half circle slices fit well under the eyes.
