A long cherished beauty remedy from India, turmeric mixed with a few other ingredients is a fantastic way to get rid of your dark circles from under your eyes. If you have tried a number of expensive creams without the results you are looking for, this simple recipe should help you get results in just 1 or 2 weeks.
Things You'll Need
Wash and peel 1/4 of a medium cucumber and then place in a juicer along with 1/2 of a ripe tomato. For best results, always choose fresh, organic produce for home remedies, even skin care remedies, as they are higher in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are free of chemicals that may irritate your skin.
Juice the cucumber and tomato and then add 1/2 tsp. of tumeric powder, mashing the ingredients with a fork to make a thin yet even paste.
Begin adding a light sprinkle of corn starch to the ingredients, stirring well each time with a fork. Only add enough cornstarch to make a thick paste. If you like you can transfer the ingredients into a sealable container and store your dark circle remover in the refrigerator; however, make sure you use the contents in about 3 or 4 days.
Wash your hands and face with a mild cleanser and lukewarm water and then apply the paste to the circles under your eyes. Leave the paste on until dry and the rinse gently with lukewarm water and pat your face dry.
