Dark circles or bags under the eyes: grandma knows what to do

Dark circles or bags under the eyes - where would we be without Grandma's wise advice :). This is her best tip: the 'spoon method'.

This is how you remove bags under one minute

Place two tablespoons in the freezer in the evening and then place the round side over your eyes in the morning. It may sound a bit strange but morning puffiness is almost always caused by swelling. Due to the coldness of the spoons, the moisture decreases and your eyes are immediately less thick.

Dark circles and puffiness; cause & treatment

The cause of dark circles and puffiness can be different. For the treatment of dark circles and puffiness, it is useful to know what causes it. Puffiness increases as you add another year. There's little you can do about that. Puffiness is made worse by moisture, illness or medication, but also lifestyle habits such as sleep, moisture stress, alcohol, smoking and diet. You can do something about this!

The most important thing in a treatment of dark circles and bags under the eyes is a healthy lifestyle. Drink plenty of water during the day, this allows waste to be better removed. Get plenty of exercise, get a healthy diet and get a good night's sleep! In any case, do not apply a (thick) cream against bags under your eyes; this can actually aggravate the fluid build-up.
What is the cause of dark or blue circles† This is mainly due to hereditary factors and the aging (thin and slackening) skin. Anti-aging products or natural-aging, as we prefer to call it, are always a good choice in this case. In addition, dark circles can also be caused by a deficiency of certain nutrients such as iron, potassium and B vitamins.

Tips to reduce dark circles, bags and puffiness under your eyes

  1. Get enough sleep; a good night's sleep is the best remedy for bags under the eyes and dark circles.
  2. Put two spoonfuls from the freezer on your eyes in the morning and your bags or puffiness will disappear like snow under the sun.
  3. You can also keep your face mist in the fridge. This cool product speeds up your blood circulation and therefore helps with dark bags and a 'puffy' face. †Camille en Lavender facial spray are mild enough for the eye area).
  4. Ensure an adequate intake of potassium, vitamin B and iron. Vitamin C is also important for healthy skin and ensures better absorption of iron.
  5. Drink plenty of water. Limit the intake of caffeinated drinks, alcohol and sugar.

Camouflage dark circles, concealer

Finally, you can camouflage dark circles with a concealer. We recommend for this Berry Vitamin Cream Foundation at. This concealer provides hydration and a beautiful skin structure all day long. Always choose a color that is a shade lighter than your own skin tone. Dab the concealer on dark or purple-blue circles under your eyes. For puffiness due to fat or fluid accumulation, it is better not to use make-up. You then have the chance that the walls are accentuated correctly.

The only thing that really helps against dark circles and bags under your eyes is the use of high quality natural and organic products. You keep your skin in natural balance, without damaging it in the long term. You are guaranteed to be happy!
