Get rid of dark circles under the eyes

By Zuurah Karungi

Dark circles under your eyes will leave you looking tired and in most cases looking older than your age. Here are some easy remedies to help you get rid of them.

Cut the cucumber into thin slices and let them sit for a few minutes. Place the slices over your dark circles for 10 minutes and wash your face with clean water. Repeat this procedure two to three time a week and watch the circles fade away.
Sweet potato
These are natural bleaching agents which will remove the dark spots. Grate the potato and squeeze the juice out of it. Dip a cotton or clean cloth into the liquid and spread on the affected area. Leave it for 10 minutes and wash the face. Do this twice a week.

Just like sweet potatoes, tomatoes have powerful bleaching properties. Mix two teaspoons of tomato juice in half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Smear the mixture on the affected area and allow to sit for 10 minutes and wash your face.

Lemon juice
Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and will do great in removing dark circles. Squeeze the juice of one lemon and use cotton or a clean cloth to apply the juice on the affected area. Ensure you have no wounds as it can be painful or may react with your skin. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes and clean well. Avoid going under the sun with lemon on your face as it can cause a reaction. Repeat the process two days a week.
