How to get rid of dark circles with soaks and serums:

Dark circles tincture:

You can make a “toner” tincture that can be dabbed around your eyes using a mixture of:

  • 1 tablespoon cucumber juice.
  • 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel or juice.

You can also add a teaspoon of black tea or asparagus juice. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, soak a cotton pad in the juice and dab gently around the eyes. You can use fingertips but do not tug skin. Allow to dry before applying cream, serums or makeup. (Store remaining mixture in the refrigerator after use).

Homemade vitamin K serum:

  • Take a ΒΌ cup of soybean oil (or alternatively use Canola oil)

Soak in the oil 2 tablespoons of any of the following (you can use several ingredients together):

  • Cilantro (coriander)
  • Basil
  • Asparagus
  • Cabbage
  • Cucumber
  • Raw potato
  • Brussel sprouts

Soak these oils or herbs in the oil in a warm place for 2 to 7 days, then remove/strain out the vegetables if you wish, otherwise leave them in the oil as an infusion. If you want to boost this serum you can splash out and buy Papaya and Sandalwood essential oils. Add 2% of each to the serum. These oils are extremely effective for reducing dark circles. Add these oils to this natural serum to make a very potent elixir. Store remaining serum in a cool dark place.

Application: Apply a small amount with fingertips around your eyes on top of the dried tincture and allow it to soak in for a few minutes before applying creams or other products.

This is an excellent serum to apply as a night treatment. Use it every day/night for 5 days (longer if you wish). After several days you should notice a dramatic difference in the reduction of dark circles around your eyes. You can maintain this routine periodically once or twice a week to keep dark circles at bay.

There are many more serums, masks and moisturizers you can make at home to suit all skin types and conditions. Natural skincare remedies can be just potent if not more so than commercial skincare products. Use these daily or as a treat for your thirsty or damaged skin and you will quickly notice the difference!
