Easy Eye Cream Recipe for Under Eye Circles

Under eye circles can make you look years older, so you'll want to get rid of under eye circles as quickly as you can.  Many things can cause raccoon eyes, and you need to address their cause before they will go away completely.  In the mean time, try this easy eye cream recipe for some immediate relief.

What Causes Under Eye Circles?

Some causes include:

  • Stress
  • Allergies
  • Rubbing your eyes
  • Eczema
  • Heredity 
  • Sun exposure 
  • Aging
Unfortunately, you can't stop dark circles from heredity or aging.  As you age, your body produces less collagen and you lose some of the fat under your skin, which can lead to circles under your eyes.  

However, if your circles are caused by allergies, stress, or sun exposure, you can treat the underlying cause and find some relief.

Covering Under Eye Circles

Need an immediate cure for under eye circles?  Use a concealer under your regular makeup.  For better coverage, use a thick concealer like this one from NYX.  It comes in a wide range of colors, so you can choose the one closest to your skin tone.  Thick, creamy concealers are best to hide under eye circles because they have more pigment, which means better coverage.
