5 Tips to Instantly Brighten Eyes and Reduce Dark Circles

Diet, lifestyle, genetics and age can all play a part in the brightness of the eyes and dark circles. While genetics and age are inevitable, there are steps you can take to help get brighter eyes and reduce the look of dark circles.

Many people aren’t aware how much massaging can help when it comes to giving skin a brighter, more youthful appearance. When you wash your face it’s important to always cleanse in an upward circular motion to help with brightening. Applying products works the same way. Applying eye creams by gently patting around the eyes and massaging into skin helps the cream not only with absorbing into the skin, but also with giving skin a brighter appearance and improving the look of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. 

At home remedies  

For quick fixes, at home remedies can help brighten the look of eyes and dark circles. Cucumbers are a great at home remedy for brightening the look of dark circles. Cucumbers have natural skin-brightening and astringent properties that can help to brighten skin around the eyes. Cut cucumbers into thick slices, refrigerate for 30 minutes, then apply under your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. Cold tea bags are another effective home ready for brightening eyes. Green Tea is a potent remedy to use for brightening. To use, first submerge the tea bags in cold water, allow to sit in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, then apply to skin for 10 to 15 minutes. Turmeric found in our Vitamin C No Dark Circles Perfecting Eye Cream is another effective home remedy. Turmeric mixed with water or pineapple juice into a paste, then applied under eyes for 10 minutes before removing can help to brighten the look of dark circles. 


Staying hydrated 

Dehydration can cause skin to look dull and highlight the look of dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles and signs of aging. Staying hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day can help improve the look of dark circles and help to give skin a brighter, healthier appearance. In addition to drinking plenty of water, it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine excessively which can further dehydrate skin. If your eyes are dull, dehydrated, or consistently dry, our Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Water Eye Gel works to nourish skin in this multi-powered combination of Hyaluronic Acid, botanical antioxidants and pH balancing Alkaline Water instantly helps to hyper-hydrate and balance moisture around the delicate eye area. The silicone roller-ball cools skin on contact while soothing Cucumber Extracts and Aloe Vera Juice actively help to de-puff, smooth, and awaken skin for visibly radiant-looking skin. 


Sun protection 

The sun's harmful UV rays can cause dark spots, age spots, and rapid premature aging. To keep eyes bright and prevent the look of dark circles, avoid exposing skin to the sun between the hours of 10am and 2pm when the sun is at its brightest. In addition to staying out of the sun, wearing sunglasses that cover the eyes and sunscreens for the face can help prevent sun damage and dark spots. Our Sun Defense Mineral Oil Free Sunscreen Face SPF 30 helps shield skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, oxidative damage and premature signs of aging.
