Whether you got them from your mom, staying up late, too much stress, aging, or crying over the fact that you’re aging, dark circles and bags under your eyes can make you look as tired as you feel and older than you’d like! Try applying almond oil or vitamin E at night. This will moisturize and fade the darkened area. Cucumbers have mild astringent and skin-lightening properties that can help too. Lay slices over your eyes or mix cucumber and lemon juice and dab the mixture under your eyes with a cotton ball. Potatoes and tomatoes both have skin-lightening super powers as well. Moist teabags can reduce puffiness, and applying concealer that matches your skin tone can help too, but don’t just swoop it across the whole area—it’s best to apply it in the inner corner of the eye and down to your nose.If all else fails, ask Dr. Lisa J. Learn about procedures available—like eyelid surgery, facelifts, and more—that can help you look and feel younger.
