Dark circles are one of the most common skin conditions among people from all over the world, and they are usually the result of lack of sleep, fatigue, stress and other health conditions. There are a number of commercial products and cosmetics which claim to help you remove these dark circles, but most of the products are loaded with chemicals and rarely work. That is why in this article, we are going to present you some of the best natural alternative solutions for treating this condition.
The best thing about these remedies is that they are natural and have no side-effects.
- Sweet potato
Potato starch has been known for its bleaching properties and ability to fight inflammation while at the same time moisturizes the skin. Just put potato slices 1.5 cm thick in the fridge for 10 minutes before applying them on the affected area.
Cut cucumber slices 0.5 cm thick before placing them on your eyes and dark circles or eye bags. Keep them while they are cold and as soon as they get warm replace them with other slices.

Make sure the milk is cold before starting the treatment. Take two cotton balls, soak them in the cold milk and place them directly on the dark spots or eye bags. Let them sit for 15 minutes before rinsing everything off with cold water.
