How To Hide Dark Circles Under Eyes: A Comprehensive Guide

How many times have you found yourself distressed after seeing those dark circles under your eyes? And how much of your precious time has gone in applying makeup to cover those dark circles? Even with the best concealers out there, dark circles can still peek through leaving you looking tired all day long. While in many people dark circles are sleep-related and according to people, it would be just great if you could simply get more rest, and wake up looking refreshed. But in many cases that is not the solution. For many people, dark circles are not even sleep-related, instead, they can be caused by allergies, genetics, and other factors.

  • Lack of proper diet

How to hide dark circles under eyes

Home treatment

  1. More sleep: It is always assumed that lack of sleep causes dark circles, and it is true in most cases. And to treat them is to get proper and enough sleep. Make sure you’re getting 7-8 hours of sleep at night.
  2. Apply cold press: Wrap a few ice cubes in a tissue/towel and apply it to the dark circles. The cold press will help in blood circulation and shrink the dilated blood vessel, thus reducing swelling. 
  3. Soak with tea bags: If you drink herbal teas then let us tell you to never throw the used tea bags in the dustbin. But rather refrigerate them. Teas (Green, black, etc.) have antioxidant properties, they also help in blood circulation. Keep two tea bags (refrigerated) on your eyes and see how they do their magic.
  4. Use potato: Potatoes when applied to the skin can lighten the skin. Raw grated potato or slices of potato work wonders when applied to the under eyes for the treatment of dark circles.
  5. Use tomato as a toner: Mix lemon juice with tomato juice and apply the toner and massage the eye area daily to see visible results.
  6. Cucumber: Cut two slices of cucumber and keep them on your eyes. Keep them for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with cold water.


  1. Facial massage: Poor circulation around the eyes can result in dark circles. Going through regular facials especially massaging the skin under the eyes can help in diminishing those dark skin bags.
  2. Cupping: Rub your hands together to generate heat in the palms. Then place the base of your palms on your eyes. Hold the position for 30 seconds. It is as easy as it sounds and you can do it anytime anywhere.

Medical treatment - Permanent solutions

  1. Laser treatment
  2. Chemical peeling
  3. Fillers
  4. Under Eye fat removal treatment
  5. Medical tattoos to inject pigment

While these medical treatments for dark circles may seem like permanent solutions, still, you need to consult a doctor before going through any of them.

Another remedy - Makeup (Concealer): Makeup doesn’t give a permanent solution to any skin condition, but it sure helps in camouflaging them. Makeup-like concealer can blend the under-eye skin to match up with your face color. If you’re in a hurry and want to hide those dark circles instantly then it is better to go with the concealer option. Always choose a shade lighter than your skin tone. Use a concealer brush for a satisfactory effect.
