A natural remedy like Witch Hazel could be the answer to brightening up those eyes and minimizing the appearance of pesky dark circles. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there before. You look in the mirror and all you notice are tired eyes staring back at you. Sometimes a full eight hours of sleep isn’t enough to erase those dark circles. From genetics, to age, to seasonal allergies, all of these factors can play a role in dark circles under your eyes.
The skin around our eyes is the thinnest skin of the body. The blood traveling through the veins closest to the skin’s surface appears as a bluish tint. The thinner your skin, the darker the circles under your eyes may appear. If you wake up every morning asking yourself how to get rid of under eye circles and puffiness, we have a fix for this problem!
The ability of Witch Hazel to tighten skin and reduce inflammation makes it an ideal natural remedy for treating puffiness and brightening your eyes. Witch Hazel is a topical astringent derived from the bark and leaves of Hamamelis Virginiana, the common or North American Witch Hazel shrub. Thayers Witch Hazel products are the only ones made of non-distilled extract from the Witch Hazel shrub maintaining the highest levels of therapeutic tannins.
Grab your favorite scent of Thayers Witch Hazel toner to reduce puffy eyes. Apply the cold Witch Hazel to a cotton pad. Place the damped pad over your eyes for 5 to 10 minutes and say bye bye to bags and dark circles.
