Nutritionist Geeta Seth shares 2 effective ways to combat under eye dark circles:
- Under eye mask
Carrot & Beetroot Smoothie
- 2 carrots
- 1 beetroot
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 cup of water
Blend everything and drink fresh.
Potato and yogurt Under-eye mask
Potatoes are rich in Potassium, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Magnesium and most importantly (and most abundantly) Vitamin C. These nutrients will hydrate the skin, promote new cell growth, maintain firmness and lighten dark areas.
- 1/2 potato grated
- 1 tablespoon of yogurt
Mix the 2 ingredients together in a small bowl and apply to face, avoiding eyes and other sensitive areas. Allow to set of 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water first, and then cool, and pat dry with a clean towel. Mask must be used shortly after making due to the oxidation of the potato.
