HOW TO GET RID OF DARK CIRCLES AND BAGS UNDER YOUR EYES

Our best 8 pieces of advice to tackle tired-looking eyes.

#1 Make-up removal and cleansing help treat dark circles and bags

Do not rub your eyes to remove waterproof mascara – this will just irritate this ultra-delicate area of the face and you might get dark circles under your eyes. Instead, choose a waterproof make-up remover and go gently, using light gestures without stretching the skin nor pressing too hard.

#2 Get rid of the bags under your eyes using spoons

Put two spoons in the freezer for 15 minutes and then place them on your eyes, with the bowl against the skin. Cold is well known for reducing swelling and toning up the skin.

#3 Get rid of dark circles under your eyes with a face massage

Gently massage the area around your eyes with the index finger, starting from the inner corner and patting the eye to stimulate the blood circulation. This will relax tired eyes.

#4 Use the best eye cream for dark circles and bags

There’s nothing simpler! Use an eye contour cream to hydrate this area, smooth away fine lines and boost micro-circulation. These products, enriched with repairing and draining active ingredients, will improve tone and elasticity in this delicate area to effectively get rid of the dark circles under your eyes. You don’t know where to start? Take a look at our wide range of our eye contour treatments designed for every life’s stages.

#5 How to get rid of red eyes with cornflower water

Cornflower is a flower found in Europe whose distilled water is known for its anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties. Cornflower water is, therefore, a natural remedy that soothes and revitalises, perfect for getting rid of bloodshot eyes. A few drops will brighten eye whites and give you a fresh look.

#6 How to get rid of tired-looking eyes with tea

Infuse two tea bags – preferably black or green – and leave them to cool, before placing them over your closed eyes. Theine – the oxidised polyphenols within tea – is known for its stimulating properties, and the tannin soothes and reduces puffy eyes. After just a few minutes, you will look wide awake once again. Camomile tea also does the same thing.

#7 Get rid of dark circles under your eyes with cucumber

With its high water content, cucumber is known for its hydrating qualities. Before going to bed, put two slices on your eyelids for 10 minutes to get rid of those dark circles under your eyes. You will wake up fresh as a daisy!

#8 How to get rid of dark circles with concealer

Choose the colour of your concealer one tone lighter than your skin and put one dab in the corner of your eye and two dabs under the eye. Blend in gently with your fingertips, working from the inside corner to the outside. Do this and you’ll get rid of those dark circles under your eyes!
