Rating

Having too much time in your hands lately and you can't/ won't sleep at a suitable time? Then you are bound to end up with ugly dark circles around your eyes. But dark circles are not only caused by lack of sleep, there are other reasons such as aging, hormonal changes, nutritional deficiencies etc.
One thing is certain, whatever the reason is for your dark circles, these are not appealing at all. And something must be done.
But don't panic, getting rid of dark circles is actually easy and cheap! There's no need to spend a lot of money on expensive treatments. We tend to forget that most of the time we have the solution right in front of us at home. You should always consider a natural, drug-free option first. So, for this home remedy all you'll be needing is tomato and lemon juice!

Why it works you ask? Tomatoes are high in lycopene, a substance that’s excellent for your cardiovascular health, vision and your skin. Lycopene can help create softer, suppler skin, as well as decrease the appearance of dark under eye circles.
The lycopene in tomatoes, is a pigment responsible for giving them the bright, red color we love seeing in supermarkets. Lycopene is also an antioxidant that reduces inflammation and stops blood from clotting. If that isn't enough for you a study even concluded that lycopene helps protect against UV radiation, one of the causes of dark circles.
Then we have lemon juice -which has vitamin C and citric acid are natural skin brighteners, and lemon juice is packed with both. When combined with other ingredients, lemon juice can reduce puffiness and inflammation around the eyes and brighten under-eye dark spots.
Soak a few cotton balls in juice squeezed from the mix and then gently dab the juice under your eyes, letting it sit before rinsing it off. Just avoid getting too close to the eye because lemon juice can burn if direct contact is made.
