- Cucumber acts as an astringent on your skin. It has the skin-lightening ability and it has the entire nutrient that will help your skin to heal itself and get rid of the dark eyes. This is the reason why most of the parlours would put two cucumber pieces onto your skin and let your skin completely suck off the juice from it. The best way to apply cucumber is to first choose the freshest from the lot and then cut it into round pieces. Let it cool in the freezer and then apply it onto the affected area. Let it sit on the skin for a while, which might be somewhere around 30 minutes and then wash it off. You can do this every night and then you will see a visible change within few days’ application. Another way to apply cucumber is to make a paste out of the pieces and then add the juice, by squeezing these sloshed pieces, and mixing it with lemon juice.
Take a cotton ball and dab this juice onto the affected area, keep it for 15 minutes and then wash it off. Simple; isn’t it?
- Lemon juice is something which does not only enhance the taste of your salad or your water, but it is something that acts as good natural bleach for your skin. Like we have mentioned earlier, if you mix lemon juice with some cucumber juice and make a nice little mixture, your dark circles will vanish in no time. How? Well, the lemon juice actually acts as the bleach and the cucumber is the astringent. So, the dark patches are bleached away because of the lemon. But it is advisable that you keep the lemon juice for a short and not overdo it. Instead, make it a point to apply it more often but for a short period of time. This way your skin will be healthy and devoid of dark circles because of the Vitamin C and the skin-lightening agents in the lemon itself.
