WILDCARD! Home Remedy for Dark Circles

-- Use egg whites as your primary mask for a week or two. This home made mask will  help tighten your pores and can actually reduce puffiness. Egg white is known to have lots of vitamin B that can also aid inflammation. Simply get a saucer of egg whites then dab a cotton ball into it and then apply it generously on the dark circles. Leave it on for about thirty minutes until you can feel the mask dry out. Then rinse thoroughly with water.

-- This may seem a little odd for some people but putting two cold metal spoons under your eyes, really works. What you would need to do is first put two metal spoons inside the freezer for about two hours. Then afterwards when it is completely cold simply press these spoons under your eyes, this primarily helps with the circulation of blood.

-- This third home remedy is already a well known solution for dark circles, the  cucumber eye mask. 
You just simply cut slices of cucumber then leave the cucumber slice under or over your eyes for about 30 minutes or so. This is said to be an effective dark circle solution because Cucumber is said to be 95% made of water so this helps in moisturizing the eye area.

-- This is a go to advice for a person who doesn't only have dark circles under their eyes but baggy droopy eye bags as well. That advice is – SLEEP! Go and get a nice long (more than eight hours) of sleep. Sleep is an essential foundation in achieving a healthy body and great skin, so don’t disregard the importance of a good slumber.

-- Last but not the least, the application of caffeinated teabags under the eyes can help lessen the dark circles. Simply drop the teabags into a cup of hot water so as to release the caffeine of the teabag. Leave them for about 5 to 10 minutes and then after that, squeeze out the excess water. Refrigerate the teabags for an hour and then you can apply these cold teabags under or over your eyes, the caffeine helps tighten your skin.
