What to do in order to diminish dark circles and to stop worry about them?

One of the most popular ways to hide them is to cover it with make-up base or mineral powder, however this method not always gives desired results, and of course - it only hides the problem, not solves it.
Anyway, sometimes we are quite happy just with temporary and quick results. In this case you may like to try this make-up trick: in order to make dark circles less visible within few seconds, apply a little bit of white eye shadow under your eyes with a small soft brush. Don't put too much of the cosmetic - just a small touch of the white shadow will make dark circles less visible and it gives a very natural look. You may use also a very light powder instead (pale color, pearl color).
If you have a little bit of free time, you may also like to try some natural, homemade tips and recipes.
One of the most popular ways to diminish circles (and puffiness as well) is to apply a cotton ball moistened with a cool black tea brew under your eyes for 10-20 minutes and relax. Less known tip is to use camomile or linden brews instead of the black tea. Feel free to try them as well, but only if you are not allergic to those herbs.
Another way to improve the look of the skin under your eyes is to use fresh cucumber or potato remedies. How to do this? Simply put cool slices of cucumber on your eyes and relax for a few minutes. If you would like to try the potato trick, take a raw potato, wash it well and peel it off. Cut two slices of the potato and place them under your eyes for a while. I've heard that papaya juice is helpful to reduce dark circles as well, but I've never tried it since there are no fresh papayas to get the juice in my place ;-).

Finally, you may also decide to apply eye creams to reduce under-eye circles. The most efficient cosmetics often contains extracts from those plants and herbs: eyebright (euphrasia, euphrasy), bluebottle (called also cornflower or Centaurea Cyanus), horse chestnut, arnica montana, buckhorn plantain (Plantago lanceolata) or cucumber juice. Eye creams are often enriched also in vitamin E and C as well as sun protection factors - UVA, UVB filters. For better effect, you may like to touch your under-eye skin with ice cubes for a few seconds before applying the eye cream in the morning. When massaging you eyes or applying the cream, make-up and other treatments, remember to treat your skin extremely softly, because the under-eye area is very sensitive.
