How To Naturally Get Rid of Tired Eyes

31 Dec

It is genetic. Even as a 6 year old, I had dark bags under my eyes that made me look sleepy all the time. As a 23 year old, those dark bags make me look older. If you are tired of having tired eyes, here are some natural remedies:


Cucumbers and White Potatoes

Most of us know it but hardly anyone has the time to do it! Do you know the best natural remedy to get rid of tired eyes or undereye circles is to apply cold slices of cucumber over them. You can also apply white potatoes as an alternative measure but cucumbers are the best. If you really want to know how to get rid of tired eyes then this is the best way! Cold cucumber has the potential to refresh your eyes and make them as they were before.


Ginger and Onion

Even though it doesn’t smell good, it can do wonders for your eyes. Yes, a mixture of ginger and white onion is probably the best mixture to apply on tired eyes. Don’t worry your eyes won’t burn because it’s white onion. The trick is simple; make a mixture of onion, ginger, lemon and honey and refrigerate it to make it cold. Before going to bed, apply it on the eyes and sleep peacefully. In a day or two, your tired eyes will be better.


Sleep Well

If you don’t have the time to make all those home remedies for yourself then the best way to keep your eyes look beautiful is to get proper sleep. 8 hours of sound sleep is necessary to give your body and eyes that much needed relaxation period. Of course, this is not a quick fix for tired eyes but it sure is a permanent way of getting rid of them.


Milk and Cotton

This one’s quite easy. All you need to do is to dip some cotton pads in cold milk and place them over your eyes for ten to fifteen minutes. This should be done early in the morning as you wake up or before going to bed.


Wear Shades

Remember, in order to avoid tired eyes you need to avoid making your eyes tired. Try to use shades whenever you are out in the scorching sun, working on the computer or passing by heavily polluted areas. If you are not habitual to wearing shades then it’s about time you should be. Just keep in mind to wear light color shades such as pink, light brown, purplish or even black. Don’t wear yellow, green or orange shades. They will only make your eyes more tired.
