If you’re sick of your under-eye dark circles making you look like you haven’t slept in weeks, this DIY trick is exactly what you need. I have had dark circles since I was little, thanks to my
Italian grandmother, it runs in the family. They don’t really bother me as much as they used to, my husband likes them for some odd reason — but my main problem is– when I haven’t slept much, they are 100xs worse and that is something I just can’t deal with. Hereditary dark circles on top of lack of sleep looks like a scary scene from a movie.
I have tried so many creams — seriously — so many! I would say there were way more disappointments than excitement. There were never any products that made we say “WOW, this is fantastic.” However, I can say this hack really made me notice a difference in the appearance of my dark circles. So, what is the secret? Sweet Almond Oil. Cold-pressed, unrefined sweet almond oil is packed with vitamin E, which will help encourage blood flow and minimize dilated blood vessels that make your under eyes look darker. This oil also contains phytosterols and niacinamide, both of which will help to brighten the skin, and help stimulate collagen production, helping get rid of wrinkles.
To help lighten your dark circles, take 2-3 drops of the oil onto your ring fingers and rub together to warm up. Pat gently under the eyes. Do this every morning and ever night before bed and
you should start to see a difference in your under-eye appearance within just weeks. Stay consistent and be patient, you’ll have brighter eyes in no time.
