You woke up in the morning at 7:30 and you have a meeting in the next 45 minutes, but then your eyes are puffy, swelling and you’ve got all dark circles?
Scary isn’t it?
Puffy eyes will not only make you look older than what you are, but these are signs of looking ill and unhealthy as well. Apart from consuming a healthy diet, there are several ways you can get rid of panda eyes and dark circles with the help of a few home remedies.
You can also follow the following skincare tips that help reduce panda eyes in no time at all:
Mix coconut oil and almond oil and massage gently in circular motion around the eyes. Leave on for about an hour. This should be done daily.
You can also make the following eye mask that lightens dark circles if used regularly. My suggestion is that you make the mask and store it in the fridge. It will easily last up to 1 week without going bad.
2. Eye Pack
Ground fresh coconut
A few drops of lemon juice
2 tsp grated cucumber
1 tsp fresh cream
3 tsp china clay
Mix all these ingredients together and keep in the fridge. Cover the eyes with a cotton gauge and apply the mask over it taking care that the pack does not drip into the eyes. You can lie down in a cool place and relax. This should ideally be left on for a minimum of 20 minutes before gently washing off with milk and then water.
3. Tomato Eye Toner
Tomatoes make for an excellent exfoliating agent. It is a hit when it comes to beauty regimes. Mix lemon juice and fresh tomato juice and massage the eye area with this daily. Leave the toner on for about 20 minutes and wash with coconut water.
4. Grated Potato
Raw grated potato or even cold raw potato slices have proven to have lightening effects on the skin. I have used these ingredients many times with positive results to lighten dark circles. Try it yourself and see how it works for you.

5. Herbal Teas
Most of us have smartened up and realized the vagaries of too much sugar in tea and coffee. We have switched over to healthier substitutes like herbal teas and non-sugary drinks. If you too have crossed over and drink herbal teas, never throw the tea bags in the bin but keep them refrigerated. Use these on the eyes especially after doing an eye massage. Chamomile tea bags are wonderful for this and have proven to lighten the eye area dramatically!
