Okay, so this might sound crazy, but among having ridiculous amounts of sleep (by ridiculous I mean the lack there of), I have some how gotten the most difficult eye bags and dark circles–NO joke! I work with clients all the time, and getting rid of their dark circles and eye bags is a cinch after dealing with mine! So as much as I try to get rid of them with different creams and eye serums (which do work most of the time), I always forget how incredibly powerful Almond Oil and Coconut Oil are!

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet Almond Oil is such a great way to help reduce dark circles! It just naturally helps lighten dark circles over time and when I saw over time, I mean in a couple weeks! It’s amazing how just a few weeks you can literally lighten your dark circles SOOOO well! Just apply a small amount around your eyes, then follow with your standard eye cream.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is so underrated! I use it for my hair, in my food, on my skin, and pretty much anywhere I can! It’s like Windex (only funny if you saw My Big Fat Greek Wedding FYI)! It’s incredibly hydrating and it has amazing powers at helping with both dark circles and puffy eye bags! I wouldn’t mix with the Almond Oil, but you always can if you like! I would try one at a time and see which one works best for you!

Raw Potato

This might sound too easy, but it’s true! Using some raw potato and just slicing it into pieces can drastically help with dark circles and eye bags! You really want to get the juice in there, so if you want to grade it and apply it to the area, you can as well, but if you hate a mess as much as I do, then just cut it into slices and just stick some holes into with a knife so the juice will seep through. For extra eye bag fighting power, try popping it into the fridge!

Who knew fighting bags was so darn easy! 🙂
