Affordable Remedy to Rid Dark Circles Under Eyes

Here's another question from my social media...

QUESTION: Porsche, I have dark circles under my eyes. How can I get rid of them?

ANSWER: Let me start by saying, there are many reasons for us to develop dark circles under our eyes, it could come from not getting enough rest, allergies, or even oversleeping, to name a few reasons. Here’s an easy natural solution that’s also easy on the budget.

You’ll want to go to the store and buy a lemon, look for one that’s a little soft, it means it will be juicy. You’ll also want to buy some coffee bags. They sell them in the grocery store near the instant coffee, choose the box with the individual coffee bags.

Both lemon and coffee are great for your skin:

  • Lemon provides extra vitamin C, it’s a great antioxidant that reduces free radicals and boosts collagen production. Which means it strengthens and hydrates the skin.

  • Coffee promotes healthy skin; it helps reduce fine lines and reduces inflammation.


Start the steps when you get home:

  1. Boil some water.

  2. Slice the lemon into a couple of pieces, keep the peel on and then pour the boiled water over the lemon (or combine the two) so the lemon has time to steep in the water for about 4-5 minutes.

  3. Soak your coffee bags in the lemon water until they are fully saturated.

  4. Place the saturated coffee bags in the freezer and keep them in until they’re frozen solid.

Then take the coffee bags out of the freezer, lay back and put them on your dark circles, take a few deep breaths, exhale and enjoy the pampering while the pads do the work.
