Some people are cursed with puffy dark circles around their eyes. The most important thing to do in order to get rid of these is to get plenty of sleep, avoid stress and make sure to not eat things that will retain water. If these are all done, and the problem persists, then there are few things that can help. Cutting up sweet potatoes and putting them on the eyes is helpful, just as doing the same with cucumber slices. Also, drinking plenty of green tea can also aid in helping the problem. You can also blend up a cold apple with oatmeal and create a paste to put under the eyes. This can be helpful. There are plenty of ideas, but some of the best may be as simple as getting enough rest.
