[under eye cream for dark circles]DIY under eye cream: A refreshing punch to knock out dark circles and puffy eye bags

  Can’t afford to cut down on your screen time? For once, we’d love to disappoint you for good. You’re about to strain and dry up your eyes and eventually get limited sleep which can give you the under-eye puffiness and dark circles you never asked for. So, ensure you don’t skimp on your beauty sleep and help prevent dryness by swiping on a moisturiser. To age is natural, but to try and fight the early signs of ageing is in your hands.?

  While vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid, retinol are raved about as heroes for ageing skin, you can get similar benefits from items that are available in your pantry. You may feel tempted to seal your under-eye area with a concealer disregarding that it does not do the expected job of lightening dark circles and repairing your skin deep within. The prep lies in skincare and let’s make it a little less stressful by making a few DIY creams.?

  Wash a potato and peel out the skin. Slice the potato and put it in a blender but do not make it extra watery.
