There always seems to be some new and mysterious remedy for under-eye bags and dark circles. And while some magical elixir sounds great, it’s not realistic. Bags and dark circles make you look tired, no matter how much sleep you’ve gotten. The fact is, they’re often genetic and there’s nothing we can do about it.

Many women have spent hundreds on these creams that claim to de-puff and lighten those circles, but none of them are a guarantee. These pesky issues in the under-eye area can be caused by allergies, sun expose, aging, chronic fatigue and more. Here’s the only fool proof remedies you need to get glowing skin ASAP.

1. Apply tea bags

Forget expensive facials – the best remedy is sitting in your pantry. Caffeinated tea bags have antioxidants that increase blood flow. They also might protect against sunlight and aging symptoms. Opt for green tea, which has added anti-inflammatory benefits. Steep for 5 minutes, chill them for 20, and rest for another 20.

2. Cold milk compress

This can be as effective as eye-cream, if not more. That cold sensation on your under-eye constricts blood vessels temporarily. This can be done with water, but dairy products like milk contain Vitamin A which keeps your skin bright and radiant. Apply under the eyes and let it rest for 10 minutes, twice a day.

3. Drink more water

This is something we’re all sick of hearing, but hydration keeps your skin happy, so up that water intake. Here’s a tip: if chugging water sounds too boring to you, consider infused water, sparkling water, or herbal tea.

4. Take makeup off before bed – correctly

Sleeping with makeup on is the worst for your skin. What’s worse is that some people just don’t know how to take it off! Never run you mascara and eyeliner off. Always use a DIY product, toner, or professional makeup remover. Blot gently, don’t rub aggressively.
