Dark circles under the eyes can definitely give you a dull and lethargic expression. And, with the lives we lead, dark circles have turned into an unwelcome visitor that none of us seem to be able to turn away. They are caused by factors like not getting a full night’s sleep, a poor diet or mental stress, and while you must take steps to remedy these causes, there are some Ayurvedic tips and tricks that you can use to erase your dark circles.
Massage your under eye are with badaam (almond) oil every night before sleeping. It is rich in Vitamin E and helps lighten the skin, while also nourishing it and reducing fine lines.
Cut slices from a cucumber and place them on your eyes for 10-15 minutes. Their cooling properties brighten up the eyes, lighten dark circles, and reduce any puffiness you may have.
Use rose water as a toner. The soothing properties of rose water have the effect softening and lightening the skin under the eyes.
One of the most effective therapies in Ayurveda to reduce dark circles is known as Netra Tarpana. In it, urad ki daal, boiled barley flour, and ghee are kneaded to make a dough that is placed around the eyes. Ghee is then poured through the dough and onto the eyes and left for a little while to work its magic. Afterwards, the dough and the ghee are wiped off.
Although netra tarpana is a simple process, it’s always better to reach out to a Jiva doctor before you administer it to yourself or someone else. Dial 0129-4040404 from your mobile phone or click on ‘Speak to a Doctor’ under the CONNECT tab in the Jiva Health App.
