Tips on how to get rid of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. It's hard to get rid of hyperpigmentation completely, but there are ways to minimize its appearance and remove under-eye bags, Massik says. Here are some strategies suggested by dermatologists.
If you want a simple solution to reduce puffiness and blackheads, stock up on a few sachets of caffeinated tea. Boil it in boiling water for a few minutes, let it cool until it is lukewarm to the touch, and put it on your closed eyes for 3-4 minutes.
Caffeine causes the blood vessels under the skin around the eyes to constrict, making them less visible, Massik said. A small, short-term study published in Advanced Biomedical Research in 2015 reported a detailed study using an iPad containing 3 percent caffeine and 1 percent vitamin K.
The researchers concluded that after four weeks, study participants felt a reduction in both dark circles and wrinkle depth. Yes, a typical spark helps reduce puffiness around the eyes, says Dr. Share-house.
That's because cucumbers are high in sodium, which draws moisture out of the skin. It also acts like a small ice pack when cold, reducing swelling in the small blood vessels under your eyes.
If you have allergies, simply trying to clean your eyes can cause the allergen to penetrate deep into your skin and make your symptoms worse. For example, it can push more pollen into your eyes and tear ducts, making it worse rather than lessening. Instead, Mudgil recommends using a gentle cleanser (such as micellar water) and applying a gentle moisturizer around the eyes.
