Dark circles under your eyes can be frustrating and might affect your confidence. Understanding the possible causes and finding ways to treat or minimize them can help you regain that bright, fresh appearance. Let's look at some common causes and the 16 most used and loved home remedies to help reduce the appearance of your dark circles!


Possible Causes of Dark Circles Under Eyes

Dark circles can be caused by various factors, both environmental and genetic. Here are some of the most common reasons you may notice them:


As you age, the skin around the eyes begins to thin and loses its elasticity. This thinning makes the blood vessels under your eyes more visible, giving the appearance of dark circles. The natural loss of fat and collagen can also make the skin beneath your eyes appear hollow.


Lack of sleep or a disrupted sleep schedule can cause the blood vessels under your eyes to dilate, resulting in dark circles under your eyes. A long day of work or rubbing your eyes due to tiredness may worsen puffiness and darkness, making your eyes look tired.


Allergies can lead to inflammation, which causes puffy eyes and increased blood flow, resulting in dark circles under eyes. Rubbing your eyes due to itchiness can worsen this, breaking capillaries and contributing to dark periorbital discoloration.


When you're dehydrated, the skin beneath your eyes can appear dull and sunken. This dehydration leads to shadowing around the eye area that emphasizes dark circles.

Sun Overexposure

Excessive exposure to the sun can increase periorbital hyperpigmentation, leading to dark circles. Sunlight also makes your body produce more melanin, especially around sensitive areas like your eyes.


Some people are more prone to dark circles under their eyes due to inherited traits. This includes conditions like periorbital hyperpigmentation and thinner skin beneath the eyes.


16 Home Remedies to Get Rid of Dark Circles

Cold Compress

A cold compress is a straightforward yet effective home remedy for dark circles under your eyes. Cold temperatures can help reduce the appearance of dark circles by constricting blood vessels beneath the skin, thereby decreasing puffiness that contributes to dark circles. To make a cold compress, wrap a few ice cubes in a clean cloth or towel and gently press it against the eye area for 10 to 15 minutes.

While this remedy is generally safe, excessive or prolonged use can lead to irritation, especially for the delicate skin around the eyes. To minimize risks, make sure to limit application time and avoid direct contact between ice and your skin. Also, avoid applying it right after waking up, as cold compresses may cause temporary swelling. Done right, this can be a quick solution to reduce the appearance of puffy dark circles.

Green Tea Bags and Yogurt

Green tea bags paired with yogurt provide a soothing, anti-inflammatory remedy for dark circles. The tannins in green tea help constrict blood vessels, which reduces puffiness and fluid buildup. Probiotics and lactic acid in yogurt work together to gently exfoliate, calm inflammation, and brighten the skin around your eyes. For an effective treatment, steep two green tea bags, chill them, then soak them in plain yogurt for around ten minutes. After that, apply the tea bags over your eyes for about 15 minutes. This blend aims to reduce dark circles and soothe tired eyes.

Risks do exist, though. The acidity in yogurt might be irritating to sensitive skin, and individuals allergic to dairy products should be cautious. Before applying the mixture near your eyes, it's best to patch test yogurt on your inner arm to make sure there's no reaction. Stick to plain, unsweetened yogurt, and be sure to rinse thoroughly to remove any residue.

Cucumber and Aloe Vera

This blend brings together cucumber's hydrating qualities and aloe vera's anti-inflammatory benefits. Cucumber offers a refreshing and cooling sensation that soothes irritation, while aloe vera reduces inflammation and helps heal damaged skin around your eyes. Blend one tablespoon of mashed cucumber with a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and chill it for about 15 minutes. Then, apply the mixture as a mask around your eye area for 20 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. This helps hydrate the skin around your eyes while reducing puffy eyes.

While generally safe, some people are allergic to aloe vera, so a patch test is advisable before applying it near your eyes. If there’s any redness or irritation after the test, it's best to avoid this remedy altogether.

Avocado and Coconut Oil

Avocado’s wealth of antioxidants and healthy fats can deeply nourish the skin beneath your eyes, while coconut oil provides essential hydration. To create this remedy, mash half an avocado and blend it with a teaspoon of melted coconut oil, forming a smooth mixture. Apply a thin layer nightly around the eye area to benefit from the vitamin E and fatty acids that boost skin health.

Despite its nourishing properties, coconut oil can clog pores for some skin types, particularly those prone to acne. Use virgin coconut oil sparingly, and if you notice irritation or breakouts, discontinue use.

Potato and Rose Water

Potatoes are surprisingly effective against dark circles because of their natural anti-inflammatory properties. When combined with rose water, this blend offers a gentle, refreshing way to tone and soothe the skin around your eyes. Grate a chilled potato and mix it with a tablespoon of rose water. Apply it as a mask for around 20 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. The soothing and brightening effect can leave your eyes looking rejuvenated and refreshed.

Though generally safe, the juice from potatoes could cause irritation to sensitive eyes. Instead of applying the juice directly, stick to chilled, grated potato. Rinse your eye area thoroughly afterward to avoid further irritation.

Milk and Cold Oats

This classic combination pairs the soothing effects of milk with the gentle exfoliating and brightening properties of rolled oats. To prepare, soak two tablespoons of rolled oats in milk for ten minutes until the oats soften. Apply this as a mask to your under-eye area for around 15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. The natural lactic acid in milk exfoliates and hydrates, while oats gently polish and brighten.

Be careful with this remedy if you have sensitive skin, as dairy products can sometimes cause irritation. Use plain milk, keep it away from your eyes directly, and rinse thoroughly afterward.

Coconut Oil and Vitamin E Oil

Coconut oil and vitamin E oil team up for a potent duo that hydrates and brightens the skin around the eyes. Vitamin E oil is well known for its protective antioxidant properties, and coconut oil enhances the hydration and provides a creamy application. Mix equal parts melted coconut oil and vitamin E oil, then apply a thin layer around the eye area nightly.

Coconut oil might not work well for all skin types. Some people experience clogged pores or irritation. Make sure you use virgin coconut oil, apply just a small amount, and stop use if irritation occurs.

Green Tea and Honey

Green tea's antioxidants and honey's moisturizing properties work well together to calm inflammation and deeply hydrate the skin. Brew two green tea bags, chill them, then mix with a teaspoon of honey. Soak cotton pads in the mixture and apply them to your eyes for 15 minutes. This gentle combination can help soothe and refresh the under-eye area while improving dark circles.

However, honey can irritate sensitive skin, especially if not diluted. Do a patch test before applying the mixture around your eyes and rinse thoroughly after use.

Tomato Slices

Tomatoes are packed with vitamin C, a key nutrient in brightening the skin around your eyes. To benefit from their natural brightening properties, chill a tomato and cut it into thin slices. Place the slices over your eyes for around 15 minutes, then rinse with cool water to reveal brighter skin. Their mild acidity helps gently exfoliate and promote healthy skin renewal.

Tomatoes have a high acidity that may irritate sensitive skin. Use the slices briefly, avoid letting the juice get into your eyes directly, and rinse thoroughly after removing them.

Rose Water and Witch Hazel

The combination of rose water and witch hazel provides both soothing and tightening effects for the eye area. Rose water hydrates and tones the skin, while witch hazel tightens and shrinks blood vessels, reducing puffiness. Mix two tablespoons of rose water with a teaspoon of witch hazel, soak cotton pads, and apply them to your eyes for about 15 minutes.

Witch hazel can be drying and irritating, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Limit the application time to avoid over-drying and follow up with a gentle moisturizer.

Orange Juice Soaks

Orange juice is often celebrated for its vitamin C content, which can brighten dark circles. However, its natural acidity makes it a tricky option for delicate under-eye skin. Mixing a few drops of orange juice with glycerin or honey dilutes the acidity and helps provide some brightening effects. Apply a thin layer to the under-eye area for no more than 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

Despite its potential, the risks outweigh the benefits here, as orange juice is highly acidic. It can cause significant irritation, especially for those with sensitive skin. You might experience burning, redness, or dryness. It's safer to avoid this remedy altogether and explore gentler options.

Vitamin E and Aloe Vera

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, well known for protecting and brightening skin. When combined with aloe vera, which soothes and hydrates, the mixture offers comprehensive support for dark circles. Mix equal parts vitamin E oil and aloe vera gel, and apply a thin layer around the eyes nightly.

Though unlikely, allergic reactions to aloe vera can occur. To stay safe, patch test the aloe vera on your inner arm before using it near your eyes. Rinse thoroughly if any irritation or redness develops.

Coffee and Coconut Oil

Coffee grounds can work to reduce puffiness under the eyes due to their caffeine content, which constricts blood vessels. However, this remedy requires caution because the grounds can be abrasive and irritating. Combine them with coconut oil to hydrate and form a paste. Gently apply a thin layer around the eye area and leave for around 10 minutes before rinsing.

Despite the promise of caffeine's effects, coffee is acidic, and its abrasiveness might damage the delicate under-eye skin. Coconut oil could further irritate or clog pores, especially for those with acne-prone skin.

Yogurt and Turmeric

Yogurt and turmeric create a potent blend that targets dark circles. Yogurt's probiotics and soothing properties can reduce irritation, while turmeric boasts anti-inflammatory benefits and a natural brightening effect. Mix one tablespoon of yogurt with a pinch of turmeric, then apply a thin layer for 15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

However, be mindful that turmeric can stain the skin, leaving a temporary yellow tint. Moreover, yogurt's acidity can irritate sensitive skin. Patch test both ingredients on your inner arm and use only a small amount of turmeric to minimize staining.

Cucumber and Chamomile

When cucumber's hydrating coolness meets chamomile's anti-inflammatory properties, the combination becomes an excellent choice for soothing dark circles. Puree a chilled cucumber and blend it with one tablespoon of brewed chamomile tea. Apply the mixture around your eye area for 20 minutes, then rinse off.

While generally safe, some people might be allergic to chamomile, so it's best to patch test this remedy on your inner arm first. This way, you can confidently use this natural, refreshing solution without worrying about irritation.

Yogurt and Lemon Juice

While yogurt can soothe and exfoliate, lemon juice is known for its lightening properties. However, lemon juice is acidic, making it a risky choice for the delicate skin around the eyes. To minimize this risk, mix a tablespoon of yogurt with a few drops of lemon juice for dilution, applying a thin layer for no more than 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly afterward to avoid residue.

Despite its potential, the acidity of lemon juice might cause irritation, particularly for those with sensitive skin. Redness, burning, or dryness are common side effects, so exercise caution with this remedy.
