(Last Updated On: May 7, 2019)

If you are tormented by dark circles and you avoid looking at your face in the mirror, no worries.

There are many home remedies you can use to remove dark circles under your eyes.

Many factors cause dark circles around your eyes such as tiredness, sleep deprivation, aging, oversleeping, stress and the list goes on.

Home remedies to get rid of dark circles under your eyes

Sweet Almond Oil

Apply few drops of sweet almond oil on your dark circles and gently massage the skin.

Do this before you go to sleep and leave the oil on your skin and wash it in the morning.

You can do this every night until you see the results.

Almond is a great source of vitamin E which makes the skin soft and supple.

Aloe Vera

Apply fresh aloe vera gel on a cotton pad and massage the affected area.

Leave it for 15 minutes and then wash it with a moist cotton pad.

You should do this before you go to sleep but you can also do it during the day.

Aloe vera`s nourishing properties reduce the pigmentation under the eye and make the skin look healthier.

Argan Oil

Apply few drops of argan oil under your eyes with your finger.

Tap gently until the skin absorbs the oil and leave it that way.

We recommend you to do this again at night, before you go to sleep.

Argan oil is easily absorbed in the skin and it restores the skin`s natural radiance and glow.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apply apple cider vinegar under your eyes with a cotton pad and let it dry naturally.

Do this twice a day and be extra careful to not get any vinegar in your eyes.

In just couple of days your circles will fade away thanks to the minerals and vitamins in the apple cider vinegar which replenish and rejuvenate the skin.

Coconut Oil

Apply couple of drops of coconut oil under your eyes and leave it overnight and repeat the process every night.

Coconut oil helps in reducing the dark circles and nourishes and moisturizes the skin.


Cut one cucumber into thick slices and put it in the refrigerator for half an hour.

Place 2 slices on the ice and leave it for 10 minutes and rinse your face with cold water.

You should do this at least twice a day for one week.

Cucumber is rich with many antioxidants which help treat under eye skin.


Mix 1 tbs tomatoe juice with 1 tbs lemon juice and apply it on the affected area.

Leave the mask for 10 minutes and then wash it with cold water.

Apply this mask twice a day for a week or two.

Tomatoes are rich with lycopene which protects the skin from damage.

There are many home remedies used to remove dark circles under your eyes and we have listed the best among them.

Use them regularly and you will be surprised of their effect.

These remedies are rich with some of the essential vitamins and minerals that your skin needs.

Give it a try and experience the benefits.

    I’m definitely going to try these out. I think the best remedy for me is going to be getting more sleep. I like to pretend that insomnia is normal sometimes.

    I’m familiar with all of these except the sweet almond oil. Coconut oil is definitely a timeless standby for just about everything related to hair, skin and beauty.
